I weighed 119 lbs when I graduated high school (many moons ago). I am 5'6''.
I come from a long line of a bit bigger boned families. Even at 119lb I don't think I was considered petite by any means. I was athletic so I probably even looked like I weighed more. Now at my age, after birthing 4 children, there is no way on this green earth that I would ever be able to get down to that weight again. I don't mean to be Debbie downer but want to be realistic and definitely do not want to set myself up for failure. I honestly think I would look very unhealthy at that weight given the changes that my body has done over the years.
But I do know I need to work on my weight. I have been struggling with my weight this past year, more so than I ever have. I have a few things working against me though i.e. PPD, hypothyroidism which make this battle even more frustrating!
I don't eat too terribly bad. If you have read my blog long enough you see alot of my menu plans and recipes. Yes, I like cheese but its not like I sit every night watching TV eating a block of cheese. And pretend like you didn't see my recent post The Bite (s) of Oregon because I am sure I gained 10lbs just that day.
I think my main issue is just finding the time and getting motivated to exercise more. You would think with all the running around after several small children that I do, that would do something. But noooooooooo....
I feel like I am running a rat race everyday on the treadmill of life getting nowhere fast....
How do you get motivated and work exercise into your busy days?
