hi everyone! I've been lurking around her forever!
I have learned a lot by reading everything in this forum as well as the main site. I have to say that all the ladies are such an inspiration.
I just recently bought MsFit's ebook as well. I got some great insight on nutrition. One thing I've always been very wishy-washy with is my eating.
In the beginning my main goal was to make sure I got to the gym 3 days a week and I set small goals and took babysteps to where I'm at now. Taking out really bad food like fried stuff (which I don't even care if I ever have now), chips, pastries, candies. Your regular junk LOL. I didn't let go of the alcohol right away though. There's nothing like having a few drinks on the weekends. But I've been slowly losing that habit as well. Now it's a couple of drinks maybe once a month or if that. I found that my fitness goals started taking priority. Not sure if it's an obsession or if I actually consider it a sport! LOL
Anyway, I won't get into my life story in what snapped in me and whatnot because it truly is a long story and I'm sure a lot of women experience similar emotions. Marriage, children, depression, low self esteem...just falling into the whole "married woman" syndrome trap. I'm sure you know what I mean. We lose ourselves in what we think is doing the right thing.
I'm going to be 32 in a few months...married for almost 11 yrs and have a beautiful 9 yr old daughter.
I would like to share with you my collage of before and afters (I am make up less in the most recent one...I'll be sure to post a "normal" face picture in the near future lol)
Well, I came out of lurking mode to mostly say thanks for being part of my transformation without even knowing it! I'm hoping to take part a little more and also get to my most recent goals. For now this is my introduction.
edit: seems I can't upload my image here even though it's under the allowed size hmm.
