I am really excited! Before I got pregnant with our little Dragonfly I was on track with losing weight and getting healthy. I had lost 20lbs! And then we found out that Dragonfly was on the way and the weight loss had to stop for now. I cannot tell you how sad I was! I was so ready to lose the baby weight and all the extra weight I had been carrying around. I was ready to be healthy!
Now that Dragonfly is here I am ready again! I am ready to start my journey again! Almost all of the weight that I gained while I was pregnant with Dragonfly is gone already, I didn't gain too much so much of the weight was lost as soon as I had Dragonfly (think baby, fluids, etc). I am about 5lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight.
I have a fabulous friend from Ohio who is going to be helping me with my weight loss again. I cannot WAIT to get started! She helped me lose those 20lbs before Dragonfly so I am confident that she will be able to get me on a plan that I can live with. Her workouts are hard but they are so worth it and it is VERY rewarding! I never thought I would be a person who was excited about working out...lol.
I have lots of reasons to get healthy. I have four beautiful children that I need to be healthy for, I have a husband that loves me dearly and I want to be healthy for him so we can spend MANY years together. I have a strong family history of health problems. We have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes running strong in the family. I don't want to be a 20-something with those issues. Those things are my motivating factors for getting healthy.
Dragonfly is fussing so it is time for me to go. Hope you all have a GREAT weekend!
