Anyone who knows me, knows that when I was younger I was the skinniest person ever. I could wear whatever I wanted to, because it fit. My stomach was flat, my butt was tight and my legs were long, long, long. I actually used to think I was way too skinny and that I would never be able to gain weight. But, over time, I could see the progress when I was actually gaining a little weight. Unconsciously, I probably didn’t want to have a body like a little boy!

Well, over time, I started having children, and from my 1st to my 3rd child, I would be able to lose the weight right away. It was like I hadn’t been pregnant before. But after my 4th child, and 6 years later, I am still struggling with my weight. I gained a significant amount of weight that I thought would never happen. I guess I should’ve watched what I prayed for, because now I can’t make it go away. The photo that you see is a photo of yet another attempt at exercising so that I can “walk the pounds off.” But, of course, I start and am not consistent, so nothing ever really changes.

There are many reasons why this weight thing is starting to be a problem.

  1. I can’t wear the clothes that I used to wear
  2. Im tired all the time
  3. I cannot move quickly without breathing like I’m being chased
  4. I’m insecure about my body, even with my fiance

This constant battle is getting the best of me. I’m looking for small tiny things I can do to create lasting habits. I’m great when it comes to other things, but my body is the challenge.

Am I all alone? Anyone else having this issue too? For those that have mastered it, what do you do? Leave a comment !
