Loving Me: Wellness Wednesday

I think of FJWL as an online diary where I can share the things I love most in the world, new and old. My favorite shoes, outfits, places, people, I even showcase my dearest possession Naomi Sinclair. I may whine about a few frivolous topics, but typically my posts are upbeat and positive. Today is different. Today I want to share with you something very personal and sensitive for me. I have been debating on doing this post for over a month and came to the conclusion that sharing this particular struggle will help me power through. So before you continue, I ask that you read with a kind heart and not leave any hurtful, mean-spirited comments behind. What did mama say? "If you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all."

*Deep breath* If I look at my life, I know that my greatest daily struggle is the one I have with my weight.

In childhood, I was the cute chubby girl. As a teenager, I was "thick." In my early 20's I was almost skinny, but not. And in my late 20's, I am just plain fat. I understand that I have had a child and with that comes some minor weight gain, but not 60 pounds. Before Naomi I had put on some unwanted weight, add that to the weight I gained during my pregnancy and voila! a gain of 100 LBS. The first two years, I told myself that I would lose it by the time she was 3. Well, my Baby girl has been on this earth for 3 years and I am still the same size. Thankfully, I haven't gained any weight, but unfortunately I haven't lost any either. That resolution continues to roll over into the next year and this year I want to cross it off my list forever! 


I am introducing, Wellness Wednesday to FJWL. Every Wednesday, I will be posting all things wellness. Some topics will include healthy eating, best/favorite workout gear and accessories, workout options, updates on how I am doing with my weight loss, and a myriad of other things dealing with wellness.

It is time to show you how much I love myself! I love myself enough to invest in my life and make healthy changes to have the best quality of life I possibly can! I am extremely excited about this and hope that you all will support me. I welcome any and all recommendations, ideas, constructive criticism, and encouragement! 

Just to give you an idea of my goal...

Circa 2004 at least 100 pounds lighter.
(Sorry about the blurriness it is a very old photo.)

I want to get back here and I start today!
