I have a confession to make. I never lost the weight I gained from my two pregnancies. People always said “Oh, it will just come off as you breastfeed.” It didn’t.
I had lost weight in the past, and it seemed to come off pretty easily. But, now that I had crossed the 35-year barrier, it seemed to be increasingly difficult to take the weight off.
About a month ago, I had had enough. I didn’t want to be heavy anymore. I wanted to be able to wear my wedding and engagement rings again. Most of all, I wanted a picture of me and my girls that I wasn’t ashamed or embarrassed of. So, I started a natural weight loss plan.
What do I consider “natural” weightloss? It doesn’t involve surgery or pills with false promises. It’s losing weight the old fashioned way: eating a healthy diet and exercising. I have also incorporated some of Dr. Lark’s natural remedies for weight loss.
How am I doing? I’m 5 weeks into this plan and I’ve lost 12 pounds. I still have a long way to go. But, I’m pleased with the start.
Over the next few months I’ll be sharing this journey with you. My highs. My lows. (Hopefully, more highs than lows.) Maybe my story will inspire some of you. Maybe you’ll share your own stories and inspire me. Let’s get started!
