Gaining More Confidence (Apryl)

July 15, 2011

Previous entry here.

Pregnancies – 4 or 5
Births – 3
18 months post-partum

Even in my original post, I tried to make myself sound a lot more confident than I really am. But I am gaining a lot more.

As of right now, I am about 90 pounds lighter than I was prior to getting pregnant with my youngest child. I’ve also separated from my husband, and he is putting me through hell with getting our divorce. It’s no easier being a single mom now than it was before. But I’m learning to love myself again. And I decided to get serious about getting healthy. I’m getting there slowly.

    And I’m sorry to hear about you and your husband.

    Girl you look fantastic! How are you losing the weight? I need to lose like 60 lbs and I just can’t get motivated to do it. I am a single stay at home mom of an infant and a toddler, and I am also going thru a divorce, if all goes as planned I will be getting divorced on Thursday.

    Wow congratulations mama! You look fantastic! Getting the weight off is a challenge in itself! I’m struggling to lose the last 30 lbs. :) But I understand being a single mama is not easy. I’m doing it too! Be strong, you look great, and don’t let your ex husband get you too down.

    My weight loss has mostly come from switching to less processed food and more organic. And walking more. Plus, since having my gall bladder removed (had a gall stone literally almost kill me) my metabolism seems to be coming back.

    Oh, and thanks to all. I’m pretty proud of the weight loss. I still have a long way to go. But it feels a lot better and less difficult to be active now.

    Look how far you have come! I am sooooo impressed and very encouraged by your progress. I’m so sorry for what you are going through. You are clearly a strong and beautiful woman (and GREAT mommy!) so you WILL get through it and be happier on the other side. I wish you all the best!
