I have shared my dating and acne stories with my readers, but did you know I have embarked on a weight loss journey as well? My highest weight ever was 220 pounds and that was at the end of my pregnancy with my first child after gaining 80 pounds. I lost 60 pounds before getting pregnant with my second child. I got my wakeup call to begin my journey after weighing in at 202 pounds. I am only 5’5 and that was entirely too much weight for such a small frame. I currently wear a size 6, and weigh between 144-147pounds. My goal is to get to 135 pounds by the end of the year and then maintain that weight. For my height 114 pounds – 150 pounds is considered a BMI of 19-25 which is healthy. I share my fitness journey to encourage others. No matter where life finds you, no matter how much weight you have to lose or how much time you may not have you can do this. Decide today that you are worth it. You will make time. You will eat healthy and workout.
I am worth it. I matter.
