Another weight post

Yes, this is probably going to sound like a small rant.

My sister is doing Biggest Loser at her school. She is a P.E. teacher at a local elementary school. She emailed me this morning to tell me she has lost 2.5 pounds for the second week in a row, so she is up to 5 pounds lost. I am really excited for her!

I am really mad at myself. I really need to loose at least 15 pounds. Seriously. I am grossed out when naked...especially my thighs and belly. I remember after I had the twins that I would laugh that all my extra skin was like silly putty. It was just skin that I could laugh about. Now, all that loose skin is filled with fat. It's gross. AND YET I CAN'T GET MOTIVATED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Why? What is wrong with me? Am I depressed? Am I lazy? Why don't I eat better? Drink more water? Get my heart rate up?

So that's my rant for today. I have got to do something, especially before it's time to put on a lovely swimsuit this summer. You know what, who cares about swimsuits? I want to put on my jeans without sucking in and stretching after putting them on.

If you have felt the same way and done something about it, please leave me a comment and let me know what you did. What motivated you?

girl I so know what you're talking about. I've ordered the Biggest Loser bootcamp DVD and expect it any day now as well as 30 day sculpt by Jillian. It's hard trying to exercise outside of the house with 3 kids so I'm giving this a shot. I also have my 10 year reunion (which I'm not sure if I'm going to or not) so it gives me a little something to work towards. My goal is 20-25 pounds by summer.

Sigh. I'm right there with ya. I'm training for the marathon, running my rear-end off... only, my rear-end isn't taking it as literally as I had hoped. I'm sure it's bc I'm still eating like crap. I have no self-control.

I can tell you that in the past, if I want to *really* jump-start my weight loss, the 7 day diet does it EVERY time. And then I switch to WW core plan to maintain. I don't go to the meetings or anything, I just know the plan and make sure I write everything down. It's the only realistic way for me to eat healthy and still give in to cravings without quitting completely and bingeing (THAT I can master).

Oh, Brea! I so sorry you feel this way! I know there are days I get so frustrated at myself for not taking my weight/health seriously. So, a girlfriend and I get up at 5:45am and work out from 6-7am, before our husbands leave for work, and our kids are up. I hate getting up, but I've lost 15lbs in 10 weeks. And it is worth it!! I feel better and better about myself. Because I accomplishing something for ME!

I hope you're able to find a solution that works for you. I know those questions you asked... it matters so much to me, but why don't i do anything about it?? Those are hard ones.

My little one's poking my belly and saying "Mommy, can you feel that?" is enough motivation for me!
I don't buy junk food, so if it's not there, I can't eat it!
