Maybe it was the stubborn ever increasing muffin top that pushed me over the edge, or the fact that my daughter asked me if I wanted to start shopping at Lane Bryant (not that there’s anything wrong with that) but I realized I just didn’t feel good. And not it’s a not about a goal weight for me I don’t own a scale, it’s about how I feel in clothes- it’s about wanting to wear clothes and be able to tuck in my shirt. It’s about not dreading THE THOUGHT OF wearing a bathing suit. Its about feeling lighter which translates into ultimately feeling better.
I don’t want to give up on my body, I don’t want to be complacent about that ever increasing jeans size, and that I was at a point where I only felt comfortable in stretch pants. I want to take back ownership over how I feel, and I know the keys to all of that are changing my diet and just moving.
Luckily I’ve got the moving part down.Thanks to my husband’s gentle perseverance I’ve been getting to the gym at least three times a week. And yes it feels good, really good. Sure I HATE getting off a warm couch and onto an elliptical(is there ANYONE who doesn’t?!) but as long as it keeps my muffin top at bay I’m willing to take as many as I need to for the team.
Ultimately for Me Getting Fit Is Not about Being SKINNY, it’s about feeling good in my skin.
