"Are you pregnant?" I went home and cried my eyes out. Here is a picture of what I was wearing that day that she asked me.
After that night I had decided that 1. I am going to lose the weight, 2. I was going to stop breastfeeding (after all we hit the year mark) and 3. I would get off my birth control (because that make it hard to lose the weight too).
I downloaded this app called Lose It and I pulled out all of the workout videos I had and started eating right. After about a week I hit a wall. I had a hard time getting to the end of any work out and most days I just could not do some of the things they where asking me to do. I broke down, it was hard not seeing myself lose any weight yet and working my butt off. Then my friends told me about Zumba so I youtubed it and tried a few. It looked funny seeing this white girl with no more rhythm trying to shake her thing! But it was fun so I kept doing it.
After about 2 weeks I could tell I was eating less and I thought about what I was eating before I ate it. So at the end of week 3 we where getting ready to pack the house up. At that point I saw the shirt I wore when that girl asked me if I was pregnant. I wanted so bad to burn that shirt, but I put it on instead, this time new tear came to my eyes. For the first time in 3 weeks I could see how a chance I was making.
It has been about 2 weeks of not doing anything not even eating right. I can tell you that it felt good to get some good cardio back in today but the eating part is hard again.
All I can say to you is if you think you can't you can't, if you think it is hard it is but you can do it. I am doing so good and I am going to get that last 20lbs off before summer.
