"I weigh THAT much!?!"

As my tag line suggests, I am all about loving and embracing your curves.  I am in a place where I have accepted my perfectly imperfect body. This was years in the making, however. I didn't always feel confident in my own skin.

Before I became pregnant with my daughter, I only weighed about 135 pounds. At the end of my pregnancy in 2010, I weighed a whopping 201 pounds. Ever since, I have struggled with maintaining my weight. My weight has ranged between 170 - 200 pounds from that point forward. I have cried, binged on food, exercised, cried some more, intermittently fasted, cried again, and so on.  It didn't help that I had loved ones telling me how fat I had become. So my self-esteem was definitely lacking. I'm sure some of you curvy ladies can relate.

It literally took me five years to accept that I had more curves than the average person and that I would probably never be as small as I once was.
Although I have embraced every curve and roll that I have on my body, I have began a journey towards fitness while trying to maintain my thickness.  Sounds like an oxymoron... I know, but oh well.  I knew that I needed to lose weight and become more healthy, because I was recently diagnosed with stage 2 Hypertension (and I'm not even 30 yet). That's a story for another time, though

Any-who, if you have read any of my previous posts then you know that I have dedicated my summer to trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Well, I weighed myself at the beginning of this week and I weighed 198.7 pounds. After seeing the scale, I struggled with the idea of letting the "world" know just how "BIG" I actually am. I was disappointed to say the least; I mean I had been working out 3+ days a week for the past two weeks, and THIS is the result.

Even after that WEIGH-IN, I would say I look fantastic even though I am pushing 200 pounds. With that being said:    I AM GOING TO DROP MY WEIGHT TO AT LEAST 188 LBS BY AUGUST 15, 2016!  Hopefully this post will be my motivation as well as yours to get thickfit. Stay tuned and join me on my journey to thick fitness.  Please feel free to share your struggles, tips, and more in the comments below!
