From the time I was 8 years old I was fat. Or as my grandmother would say, I had a pretty face. In my family I have a cousin who is one day older than me. She was always the skinny, beautiful one who had all the great looking boyfriends and the one who stood out. Being compared to her on a daily basis by my aunts and uncles, not my parents, hurt to the point where I would eat more and more to suppress the sadness. I was and still am a “big portion girl”. I LOVE FOOD!!! And not only that, I use food to help me get through my sad times, my happy times, my angry times, my bored times, my…well you get the point, I am an emotional eater. Always have been, always will be.
Anyways, I was a fat kid.
I remember my mom trying to put me on diets at the age of 10, trying to get me interested in sports and or exercise. Neither was happening. I wasn’t ready. I was happy eating junk and having a big bowl of ice cream for dessert late at night.
That all changed when I didn’t make the cheerleading squad in eighth grade because well, I was fat. That is when the starvation diets started.
It wasn’t until college that I learned about these diet pills you could buy in stores! Which were basically huge amounts of caffeine in this little pill.
I thought this was great!
They worked fast, I didn’t have to exercise and they chopped my hunger basically down to nothing.
They worked until my body got used to them or I stopped using them. So again the yo-yo-ing of my weight happened all through college. I just figured that was how it was going to be.
Then after college I met my future husband, B.J. B.J. helped me understand that I have to eat well to lose fat and I have to exercise properly and with weights heavier than 5 pounds. I went from 145-129 pounds and a size 8 to a size 4 in jeans with in two months.
Like most women, I never weighed myself at my heaviest. The size 16 jeans told me all I needed to know. I knew I wanted to share with women of the world you can lose the weight with out crazy starvation diets and diet pills that make you want to climb walls!!
After the birth our beautiful daughter Parker, I felt like I was back at square one. To make it worse, I felt totally “UN-SEXY”.
I got back to work and went from Post Baby Body to Bikini Body. I gained so much confidence and never felt Sexier in my life!
My arms and shoulder were sleek and strong, my leg slim and firm…and MY BUTT!!!
NICE AND ROUND… my husband loves it 😉
I’ve now set out to help other mom feel the same way. Nothing has mad me feel so EMPOWERED and SEXY as getting a better than pre baby body and I hope to help you, too!
Just because you’re a Mom doesn’t mean you have to wear “Mom Jeans” and stretchy pants! Stop your self limiting way of thinking and start your Mom to M.I.L.F. transformation!
Oh and before you write me a nasty email about my sense of humor, that stands for:
Geez, loosen up a little!
If you don’t giggle a just little bit at that, we may not be a good fit to work together, just sayin’!
