~Being the Me I am Today and LOVING IT~

I can sit around all day miserable because I am 20 some pounds heavier than I want to be or I can choose to ignore the numbers on the scale and just be happy.  Yes, the food continues to win but the exercise is coming back. Slowly but it is there. Will I ever be the size I really like being, sure!  Will it happen tomorrow? NO!  In 6 months? I don’t know. What I do know is that I NEED to be HAPPY NOW!

The scale is put away for now.  New pictures were taken today to remind myself that I am still beautiful even at a heavier than perfect weight.  I need to love myself the way I am today!

I have a man that loves me no matter what size I am!!


I am blessed to be a mother of 5 amazing children that love me!

love yourself


  1. Love the post sweetheart! Totally there with you but mine is actually more like 40 pounds yikes! Still got to you love yourself first. Miss you!

  2. Thank you so much for your post! You look amazing to me, but it's great that you appreciate it, too, even though it's not your 'ideal'. I need to lose about 160 pounds, which is so overwhelming, but your blog has inspired me more than the many others I have read. Keep on trucking!!

  3. I think you look great! And you are right--we all love you no matter what and we also support you in whatever endeavors you undertake. I know I could never have lost a pound if Jim wasn't there to support me, encourage me and let me go workout at crazy hours so I could fit it in to my already mindnumbingly ridiculous schedule. :)
