I had a regular doctor checkup about two months ago. It was then that I asked about my weight. I know I'm not as small as I was before I had my son but I wouldn't have considered myself to be obese. That day my doctor told me I was borderline obese...I came home to my husband and asked him to help me lose weight, he agreed to help. He took me to gym once put me on treadmill while him and his friend went and did their work out and never took me back. I did my research and learned how to eat healthy,but apparently that's not enough. I went bk to doctor last month due to him wanting to check my process, I dropped 5 lbs...still isn't enough. I have no family where I live, the few friends I have are either pregnant or too busy to join me, and obviously my husband isn't concerned or care. I have family history of diabetes and obesity, which is why my Dr is concerned.
Due to the lack of help, guidance, support...I went into the f**k it state of mind for almost a month. I hate how my body looks, double chin, big arms, rolls everywhere when I wear my summer dresses, belly fat and flab from being 105 lbs before pregnancy then in the end of my pregnancy I was 207 lbs.
I keep a spotless house, tend to my family's every need, babysit 2 other kids, I know it don't sound like much but I can assure you, I stay busy all day. Even though I support my husband in every decision he makes in his military career, I don't see why he can't return the favor. But the past few days, I have researched workouts I can do in my own home. I'm not going to put myself, my health, my self esteem in harm's way due to others.
This is the very beginning of my journey, the beginning of a new chapter, the beginning of MY life.
I hope anyone struggling with similar issues, even worse issues know that you're not alone. I'm going to show my loved ones even myself how determined and dedicated I am even if I have to do so alone. I hope everyone wanting the same things as I overcomes and prevails.
All the best Tiffany ..amazing spirit....keep it up and you will definitely achieve all your targets..
Thanks for sharing. I don't have as many excuses thus convicting me even more to keep pressing on. Keep going we are all here to support you! Time to transform you into one hot mama! :)
Any advice on what to start with ? I'm going to have my first workout in a couple of hours (as soon as I finish house chores)
Well I was thinking, I love my yoga...so I figured I'd start morning with different yoga routines, adding in a little core, and full body
Afternoon do some cardio, core, and rotate upper and lowers depending on the day
Evenings I haven't planned for yet haha.
I HAVE TO have a written schedule for the week though and put up on fridge or something or I won't do it lol I just don't know how to schedule my week. And it has to be and Hr 3 times a day.
I rest on weekends lol
