My weight

Some of my followers might remember that I while ago I started a journey about losing some of my weight as a New year resolution. 

For those that don't remember, here is that very first post, where I was complaining about being 140 lb. 

After seven week, I was able to report a slow process that helped me loose 2 lb, read it HERE

Then it happened that I had to move to another house, I started working and lots of other changes and suddenly my weight wasn't a priority anymore. I figured that I was being active and that I would get healthier and I stopped keeping track of my intake. 

So, 1 year and half later, I'm 148 lb. 
Nope, I'm no kidding. 
See for yourself. 

I feel very ashamed and also angry about it. I walked my kids to school every day and added another hour of walking, taken tap dance classes, introduced my self to running, swimming and weight lifting and drank all the water I could during the day.
But nonetheless, something went wrong somewhere.
I think the emotional roller coaster of Gabriel school situation played a role in my emotional eating, but I'm no kidding my self, this is not excuse.
Yes, I did put on some muscles on arms and legs, but the middle part of my body it's another story and it comes only and purely from eating.

Here you go, I present you my belly rolls and my fat ass

I took and posted these pictures just as a motivation for an "after" better looking ones

(But I also wanted to show off my totally cool purple sport bra lol)
It's time for some crunches and I'd love to post daily a list of exercise that I'm taking in the hope that someone out there is willing to share the burdens and joy of this journey with me while I reach my goal of 130 lb (BMI=24.6) post signature

Personally I'd love to be 148!! I'm no where near that! I need to start my process.

Just remember: Take measurements. Because if you're doing it right you might not see the scale budge but you might see your inches coming off! Losing fat first and replacing it with muscle is a good thing. It might not help you lose weight, but it will help you go down in sizes! :) What kind of exercises are you planning to do?

Taking pictures is a great idea! One of my girlfiends has been doing this and has lost over 30lbs so far. She photographs herself from time to time which gives her incentive to continue eating right and exercising! Good luck in your journey. :)
