I’m headed to Blissdom in two weeks and like the other hundreds of bloggers going, I want to look cute for the event. I had hoped to combine my New Year’s resolution of getting healthier with my hope to begin dropping the 20 lbs I’ve accumulated over the past year and a half. It hasn’t happened. I’ve struggled with yo-yo’ing in my weight for the past six years. Basically once I hit thirty, it became much more difficult to keep weight off. Here is what I looked like celebrating my 10th wedding anniversary on the beaches of Cancun. I’ve been married 11yrs now and don’t look anything like that in my bikini at the moment. OMG, did she really just post a picture of herself in a bikini on her blog??? Yep. I did. Take a moment to gossip amongst yourselves if needed.
I know that keeping weight off comes down to diet and exercise, commitment and consistency. I know there are no magic bullets out there. I have been successful losing weight numerous times and also know that to keep it off I can’t slack off on my routine. However, I want to know what is currently working for you. Lay it on me. Tell me what exercise programs you’re enjoying. What lifestyle changes are you making that are working for you? I really want to have more energy, stop catching colds every other week, and lose these 20 lbs….and of course look like my before pic (or better) too! Advice please.
