If you read this post you already know losing weight wasn't a resolution of mine for 2012. It isn't. It just so happens that it is a new year and I'm ready to get this weight off. I really thought after I had Sadie I would bounce back in couple of months and be myself again. I've thought about this a lot lately and some friends on Twitter were talking about it tonight as well. I know that some women have an easy time after having a baby and I just didn't. I can't say exactly what was wrong but I just wasn't myself. Things just didn't feel right. After the first couple of weeks the extreme emotions slowed down but I just couldn't get it together. Hormones are crazy and I was NOT prepared for how off I would feel.
I will be honest I still don't really feel like myself but I finally feel like I'm getting there. I think this has a lot to do with why I'm ready to change a few things, including my body.
This past week I've started trying to keep track of eating and exercising. I'm using the My Fitness Pal app and it is great. You can log in online or on your phone. I tried using this in May but I failed. I think this time things will be much better. A lot of it has to do with my friends. This app allows you to connect with friends so you can encourage each other and have accountability. When you know other people will know if you meet your goal, lose weight, log your food, etc it sure makes it easier to say no to dessert or going back for seconds. Lots of girls were talking about it on Twitter so I decided it was time for me to join the fun.
So far so good. My new pal and I are getting along just fine. I've set a few goals and I feel good about them.
Only time will tell...
