I have struggled with my weight since I stopped playing soccer in high school. I have gained and lost over a hundred pounds more than once. I gained a lot of weight with each baby, and I did eventually lose all of it with the boys. I haven’t lost the baby weight from my daughter’s pregnancy yet. Now that she’s one, I’m realizing I can’t really call it baby weight anymore!
I signed up with Curves, which was a splurge for us, and I was great about going at first, but lost my steam over the holidays and haven’t been able to get back on track. As I was falling asleep last night, I thought, “I could go every day if I got up early…” This morning, as we were waking up, my husband said, “You know, you could go every day if you got up early.”
Okay, okay, I get the message! So, starting tomorrow (or maybe Friday, since my husband has a job interview tomorrow and I want to make him a good breakfast and be available if he needs me), I am going to get my plus-sized tush out of bed and get to the gym. And start counting calories again. It’s almost my birthday, and I’m 30 pounds heavier than I was on my birthday two years ago (when that picture was taken). Hopefully I can be even thinner than that picture by my birthday next year!
The fruit of the Spirit is…self control! I am going to work on it! Are you working on it, too? Tell me about it!
