I will Ultimately Shame Myself into Action..

Let me give you a little math lesson using some pictures.

Allow me to explain:
Me (holding my niece) before marriage and kids. + Pregnancy with twins = One happy Momma + Pregnancy with Alexander - Alexander = One happy mom + hospital stays + seizures + stress eating + more stress eating = OH I CAN NOT BELIEVE THAT IS ME (picture taken yesterday). 
I continue to say, "I've got to get this under control." I start to watch and I begin to exercise - then life gets in the way.  My hair needs cut, my eyebrows need waxed, all of my needs have been put on the back shelf.  But this ... this picture ... just kills me.  I do not want to be fat. There - I said it.  If you see me this summer - please don't be shocked by my metamorphosis.  The truth is, I still mentally think I am the size of myself in the first picture. The reality is - I am not.  But I will be.  I will shame myself publicly on the Internet to hold myself accountable.  I need to stop eating burgers and pizza and peanut M&M's and drinking Pepsi.. etc.  I need to focus on my health. It is not just skinny... I want to be healthy for my kids too.

Please - if you decide to comment... do not make excuses for me.  I know how this happened - I just showed you.  Just encourage me - and hold me accountable.

First off, I appreciate how honest you are. Always. This was an amazing post.

For me, these are some things that work. Being accountable to someone who is working out using the same schedule although we don't live in the same town. We have run two races together, and have two more lined up. I don't want to let her down and the races are expensive! I want to do them and do well!!

Also, watching what we eat, what we buy, where we buy, etc. We don't do drive thru (except for coffee one of my MAJOR downfalls), we try to pack snacks, etc for when we are out and about. Or like today choosing healthy and a little more $, and taking the girls to Jamba Juice. The only oil we use now is grapeseed oil, tossed everything else. I try to shop only the outer aisle of the market, where the fresh stuff is. We signed up for the local CSA farm and have to eat what they give us, so I am trying to really like radishes. And bc we have decided to eat a certain way, certain foods like dairy and meat are more expensive organic so we eat less so we have better options.

Chocolate is my downfall.

I love you for this. For reals. I am currently having to give us SO much food due to food allergies, that I have decided to use this as a time to jump start my health in general. I am even giving up caffeine (so if this gets rambley or has excessive typos, well...I am hungry and exhausted, cut me some slack!)

I look forward to seeing your progress, watching you continue to evolve and become the person you want to be. Good luck on this part of the journey. I am proud of you for remembering to take care of YOU as well as taking care of others.

I love you. Your honesty is amazing.

And I am so with you. I hate to have pictures taken of myself because I am so disgusted with the way that I look, and I know that I'm not as healthy as I could be.

I did find that posting things like "I'm going to do a half-marathon on May 1" really forced me to focus - and I did the half-marathon. And I haven't walked a bit since then, other than what was necessary! LOL Now that we have this road trip planned, and I'm going to be seeing all sorts of people from high school (and I graduated *eeek* 22 years ago) I want to look good. So I have a goal in mind - not that it helped when we went to Wendy's after the lake today *sigh*.

You can do it. I have faith in you.

I so feel you on this! I was putting myself on the back burner for the past two years as well. It's crazy what motherhood does to you. 5 weeks ago I started weight watchers with my grandma and i love it! I now have another friend doing it with me to help hold each other accountable, even though we live hours away from each other. if you are interested and need some accountability partners we are here for you girl! you can do it, and you will feel great about it! love ya!

You are amazing! You do so much, handle so much, survive so much. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

Does this mean you might consider running? And not toward the Big Macs (your words, not mine). =) Seriously so proud of you for putting this out there! There's nothing you can't do, we both know this, so you'll conquer the bad eating habits too!
