I am not trying to brag (or maybe I am - because hey, I am proud!) but since I have been sharing my pregnancy weight loss journey for 8 months now, I thought I would keep sharing now that I finally am feeling comfortable in my own skin again. Yes, a lot of my weight fell right off after pregnancy and I only needed to lose 4 lbs to be back to my pre-pregnancy weight when RQ was three weeks old. Then came Thanksgiving, Christmas... and then Vegas. Needless to say, I was back in my clothes, but they were a littler tighter than I wanted them to be. No, I was not fat and am not one of those "I'm fat 'skinny' girls" - you know what I'm talking about. I've never said I was fat, I just wanted to be more fit and in shape.
Here I am today and I finally can feel my hard work paying off . My runs are not as difficult and I am slowly adding distance and increasing my times. My clothes don't feel tight and I feel great. I even feel more relaxed and happy each day! I hope the weather forecast for rain the next 10 days on my little island doesn't throw me off too horribly bad! Plus, it is time to strengthen my arms with the jogger and RQ!
I also want to give a huge shout out to my mom who is running with me most days! It's wonderful to have a partner and it helps to keep us both motivated. (And thanks to Grandy and Daddy for watching RQ while we have been running all those mornings!)
Here's to all the runners out there bearing this heat! Stay hydrated and happy, friends. :)
