I am a person who believes in keeping my body healthy and strong. I exercise a lot and I have a job where I am quite physical; however, I hate taking pictures of myself, because I am not pleased with the way my body looks. For someone who exercises as much as I do, it is sure hard to shake the fat, especially truncal fat. I know it has something to do with age and hormones, because since my unfortunate experience with run away female hormones (my body making too much estrogen), I've had trouble keeping my weight in check.
As of this week, I will be launching an all out battle to finally combat this weight issue. Yes, I have nicely toned legs and arms, and a great upright posture, but there is just too much weight sitting in my mid section. Yes, I am thankful that things could have been worse, because there is a familial tendency to be overweight, and I am doing a good job of keeping overt obesity at bay, but I think I can do better. I am now a size 14, which is down from my original size 16 two years ago. I can even fit in size 12 at times, depending on the cut of the outfit. My goal is to get to that perfect 10! That is only two dress sizes down! I think I can do this. I just need the discipline to stay the course, and God's help of course. Without Him, I can do nothing! Please pray for me as I embark on this journey.
