I've been hanging out at the same weight for a while now - I just need to lose 10 more pounds and I'm back to pre-pregnancy weight! I didn't use to have any body image issues - it wasn't even something that crossed my mind. As I've gotten older, it's gotten worse! Pregnancy does not help your body image at all - even though in the grand scheme of things, it's not a big deal. I totally would do it over and over again because the benefits far outweigh what I think I look like throughout the process. It's just hard thinking you won't look as great as you used to in that dress, or shirt, or bikini. I'm guessing everyone has a small dose of this. I know I'm lucky for only being 10 pounds away from pre-pregnancy weight don't get me wrong - everyone's biggest critic is themselves!
I've said before I was going to start to get serious, but it ended up fading away. Hopefully I really stick to it (I'm only a week in this time)! I think I'll do pretty well since I have a girlfriend at work who will workout with me during lunches. Then on days I don't get to do things during lunch, I'm going to Golds Gym. I'm trying to go atleast 3-4 times a week.
Another motivator is My Fitness Pal. I track all my calories everyday by using this tool. It really helps, because you don't want to have to see how many calories a horrible lunch or dinner gets you. So you really end up eating decent. A good thing is you're not eating crazy diet foods, you're eating whatever you want within reason.
Of course summer is motivating me as well! I have to get into a bathing suit in a month and a half. My family is heading to the beach June 17th, so I'm hoping to be a couple pounds down by then.
Maybe now that I've actually written a post about it too, will make me even more motivated to do it. Otherwise I'll have to write a couple months from now and say - "I'm at the same weight or more!" :)
