This right here is a picture of my ass mistakenly taken by BooBoo. You can imagine my
surprise horror when I saw it.
It’s not that I think I’m fat; I don’t. I’ve always been rather skinny on top and hefty south of the equator. This body shape of mine is one I’ve learned to live with and embrace (with Spanx) on a good day.
But this is where the story turns.
The other day I noticed I was sporting a serious muffin top which is new for me. I actually paused for a moment to calculate the date of my last period because looking baby bumpish in the middle is something I’m usually not. I’m not going to lie; it sent me into a mild depression for a few days.
I know women come in all shapes and sizes. I also know curvy women are where it’s at.
It’s not that I want to be stick thin; I just want my comfortable weight back. When I have trouble fitting into my clothes and I stray from the weight where my body has been happy and comfortable for the better part of my adult life, I want to do something about it.
I’m taking to the internets to reveal what no woman reveals; her weight. GASP!!!!
I weigh 141 lbs. Can you believe I just posted that? Me neither. The number isn’t shocking. The number isn’t bad, but the number isn’t where I feel happy and able to zip up my jeans without lying down and sucking in.
Simply eating better and exercising are ideas that sound good in theory but mean nothing to me without a plan, so I joined Weight Watchers.
I know a lot of people don’t understand why someone would join a weight loss program to lose only a few pounds but it makes sense to me. If you’re a WW member, look me up; let’s be friends. I’m at LGARCIA1976.
Emily of Adventures in Emily World reached out to me to share her Eat Until I’m Skinny Pinterest page which has been invaluable to me. Knowing my fellow Mommy Friend is having success on WW is super inspiring!
I’ll be sharing my WW journey here on Mommyfriend and my healthy-ish inspired posts on Babble because they pay my bills.
Please feel free to share your stories, links to healthy recipes and articles/blog posts if you’re an aspiring skinny bitch like I am.
I’m bringing skinny back.
BTW: This post was not sponsored by Weight Watchers but I totally wish it was.
