I know a lot of people here are in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and so on.. But when I was 17, I had people ask me when I was due.. Or said "Oh my gosh, Leeann! I didn't know you were expecting!"..How horrifying it was at THAT AGE to tell people that I wasn't pregnant, i was just severely addicted to pasta, pizza, pie, cake, and ice cream
. Of course I didn't say that, but..
It hurts. I recently got back up in the 190s and i do carry a LOT of my weight in my belly (I have got some HOT legs and a great butt) so I can understand why people would think that, so I've started again. Tonight's dinner is chicken wings and mashed cauliflower. I can't wait!! Smells SO good
Also started hitting the gym pretty hard. If only I could cut the alcohol out!! That's been the WORST part lol. I eat pretty well otherwise.
Anyway, I've noticed now more than ever, the skinny girls on TV or in my day to day life, and I want that. I want to be able to walk around and not worry about my tummy jiggling. Maybe most people say "I want to be NORMAL. I want to look PRETTY".. I know I'm pretty. I feel beautiful most days, and I carry myself as such, but every single day I feel just.. jiggly. Like a jello jiggler LOL. That's what I want to stop mostly. The jiggle. I've been overweight/obese most of my lifetime, though, so I know that something will always be jiggling, even though I'm only 22. My stomach skin is LOOSE. I know overweight people now that have that firm fat/skin/tummy. Mine is all jiggly and loose so I know I'm going to have some extra skin so I'm doing everything I can to fix that. I'm doing this a lot for my future, too. I want to be healthy when my husband and I decide it's time to make a family. And I want to be able to 'bounce back', so to speak, afterwards, instead of thinking "well crap i was already 30 pounds overweight, now I have to lose 80!"
So, here is to all of us.. Who have lost and gained only to do it many times over and over.. and who finally found this way of life and know it works and know how healthy it is for us (even if we might be on our 50th try).. We can DO IT.. and those events and insults were only wake up calls to make ourselves healthier!
