I have decided to participate in Jen at One moms World’s Spring Weight Off Challenge. I'm technically not overweight, but I'm carrying about 5lbs more then I want to. The problem with that is it is all my stomach area & it drives me insane. Luckily it hides well which is why I have avoided doing anything to fix the problem. I would love to wear a swimsuit again & I need the motivation. I keep saying I'm going to start to exercise; I look up workouts on the net. I also tend to tear them out of magazines & file them away. I always have an excuse not to actually exercise. This week my kids are home for Spring break & just this morning I thought ok next week I will start when they go back to school. When I saw this challenge a few minutes ago, I had to sign up. I usually avoid things like this because I don't need to lose a lot. I feel funny signing up when women are really struggling with weight. I feel that I really need to lose the extra pounds in my middle though, especially since that is a big risk factor for women. Plus this extra weight happened about 3 years after having my second child. I lost all my pregnancy weight with both my kids very quickly. I do have major thyroid problems though & I believe that was where the weight gain happened. That worries me, so I'd love to prevent any more weight gain from happening.
I honestly do not want to put my weight down, but I want to lose 5lbs.
