This is my starting weight. When I got pregnant with my son 9 years ago, I weighed close to 200 pounds. I believe I was at 180. After that my weight just sort of kept going higher and higher. Now that I’m no longer in “baby making season”, it’s time to take back control. It’s time to take care of ME. So that I can take care of my family.
I have zero energy. I’m sluggish, unmotivated, and slow. I love the way my body looks. In fact, I have curves in all the right places. Guess that’s a plus for being so tall. (I’m 5’9″) But I FEEL horrible. So yesterday I joined Les Mills OnDemand, bought some supplements (totally not necessary for all, but for me they are), and publicly declared my resolve to lose 40 pounds.
OMGEEEEE y’all am I sore today!! I did 40 minutes of Body Pump with little to no weight and I need handicap bars in my bathroom to sit on the toilet. But it’s going to be soon worth it. Like my husband told me this morning when I asked him, “What am I going to do today??? I’m so sore!!!!” and he said, “Suck it up and keep going.” Best advice to date.
So, here I go, peeps. I’m going to suck it up and keep going. No pain, no gain.
