Okay, here's the deal.
I'm 21 years old. Almost 22 (Come on April 30th!)
I'm a first time mommy to a beautiful 8mo old little girl.
I have ALWAYS been the fat kid. So much so that I was made fun of and put down by my own family. No, I don't mean teased. I mean, I would end up in my room crying myself to sleep most nights because my brother and father would put me down that bad. I was a child, do you know what that did to my self esteem? Until this precious little miracle in the crib next to me came along, I HATED my self.
At the end of my college career I was the biggest I had ever been at 5'4" and 210 pounds. (I just posted a picture if you care to check it out) and I always thought to myself... you're disgusting why do you do this to your self? Why? Because I personally felt like I wasn't worth it. I didn't FEEL beautiful. So you know what I did? I made things worse by eating my feelings and most days not getting out of bed.
A year later at the end of 2013 I found out that I was pregnant. I was scared, nervous, SINGLE ( shout out to all you single mommies out there!) And her father didn't believe I was really pregnant. So, to keep my stress at bay, I started eating my feelings again. But then the strangest thing happened, I ended up LOSING weight. My pre pregnancy clothes ended up being too big by the time I was 9 months and ready to pop! A month or so after my babygirl arrived i joined this site. July 2014. And I stuck with it here and there, made some connections for team motivation. And by that time I had stopped losing weight. And I gave up. At 180. But a few months later I weighed myself, and where was I? 210... just like college. And I HATED it. So much that I started working my ass off, literally! (Squats! where you at?) And in just a couple months I went from 210, to 160lbs. I started doing small workouts for myself. I took a pole fitness class and was sore for a week! (Kudos to you ladies) however I haven't changed the way I eat, drink, or sleep. But if I did, could you imagine? I don't eat well to begin with, I drink a TON of soda, and I don't get enough sleep.
It's time to start making some real changes in my everyday life. Everything else has got me down and out and just angry at the world right now, but you know what? That isn't good enough for me. THIS is not where I want to be!
It's time to kick all my excuses and what ifs to the curb and grab life by the reins because all this negativity, all this bullshit, is NOT going to keep me from where I'm going!
ARE YOU IN?!!?
Let's rock this bitch

You are strong and you can do it! I wish you all the best of luck.

Just cut your sugar intake, especially soda and you ll get to your goal quicker. After a week you won t miss it. I quit soda two years ago and feel much better
