My Fiancee Loves My Womanly Body – Update (Anonymous)

February 1, 2011

Original post here.

It has been almost 4 weeks. I am doing much better about tracking my foods and being realistic on what I want vs what I need. It is difficult but empowering when I say no to eating at 10 pm with my fiancĂ©. He has been very supportive though and says he doesn’t really want me to
Lose weight but he will love me no matter how I look. It’s got to be a lifestyle change for me though or it won’t last. Now is the time to do it- I’m almost done with my bachelors degree, just bought my first home and don’t want to spend anymore time positioning my clothes each time I sit or stand. I have not lost any pounds yet but my mom noticed my tummy was looking more trim. The most difficult part for me Is exercise. I need motivation! I joined a challenge at work so i hope that will help. If I can get healthy again I can do anything. My goal is to be running my own office from home by the time my kids start school- I really want to be available for my fiancĂ© and kids. Our world is so complicated when 2 people must work full time and come home to a messy house with groceries needing bought, supper still needing to be made and kids needing help with homework. It’s the way it is though. Anyways I’d love some encouragement from my fellow do- it-all and do it with a smile moms! Sorry about the grammar and typos- I’m using my itouch!

    You are gorgeous! The figure of a goddess. Good luck with exercise-I was in such great shape when I was walking a lot every day with my baby in a stroller

    Need some encouragement you say?!?!?! First of all, you look awesome! The overhang you mentioned hating in your first post is gone now. Isn’t it amazing what some healthy eating will do! You can do this…you carried and birthed 2 babies…you can do anything. You have no loose skin, and your bum looks lifted :) I am in the same boat as you (trying to be healthier, and to make it a lifestyle change). I try to eat good (lean meats like boneless skinless chicken, ground turkey, fish…lots of green veggies, green beans, spinach, asparagus, broccoli…whole grain pasta, rice, and bread) don’t get me wrong, I slip up often bc of my sweet tooth…but I am trying! I weighed 180 at the end of my 2nd pregnancy, I am now 125 (21 months later). I am saggy, stretched, and loose! I want to eat good and exercise to be healthy and fit! Your tummy looks way more tight than mine :) It is hard to stay dedicated, but we can do it! I have found bodybuilding.com to be helpful. They have lots of good nutrition and exercise tips…and A TON on inspirational stories. Good luck on your goals.
