The year before I got married (August 28, 2004), I successfully completed Weight Watchers.
The past few years have given me the ability to look at myself as a person (not a sleep-deprived mommy zombie!).
I am also coming up to a milestone birthday in August 2015 so it has given me the motivation to get my self image, confidence and body back to where I feel good about myself.
As a mother I certainly don’t have others to impress but as a wife and an individual I want to feel desirable in a physical way.
Shallow, I know but as a teenager and young adult I was able to confidently don whatever clothes I wanted to and not worry about the calories in each bite I consumed.
I understand my metabolism was at it’s peak and I was physically active in a different way than my current lifestyle but I believe that I can get back to that place if I put a little up-front effort to get to my ideal physicality.
In my journey to getting my physical “house” in order, I am realizing that there is a lot of mental and environmental clutter that I also have to conquer.
