I am one day away from my three week weigh in. I started this year out with too much of everything. Too much stuff, too much stress, and definately too much weight. I still have a lot of weight to lose, and I’m no where near relieving all my stress, but i am working everything down in pieces. I lost 6 lbs the first two weeks, and can fit back in my shorts from last year. The biggest thing I have gained is more confidence, and a lot more energy. I take my children for walks at night now to the park or just for a stroll and I can jump around and play. I feel more at peace with myself and it’s only 6 lbs. As a mom I feel it can get so easy to be caught up in life, and not have time for yourself. I will say that when I made the decision to spend time on myself this year I felt guilty, but I realize now that my children will get the best version of their mother if I am confident, energized, and relaxed.
