Why isn't this working???! I have been working out for weeks. Yes, weeks. And I haven't lost a pound. My clothes have started to fit better, but that stupid number on the scale is still the same.
I don't want to be a part of any fad diet that I know will crash and burn. And I am to the point where I just want the fat to magically go away. But I know it won't. So I decided to start running three mornings a week combined with my P90X in the evening.
I am really trying hard to lose weight. I'm so tired of not fitting into my cute clothes. I'm so tired of seeing pictures of me and all I can see is fat! Let me preface this with a little explanation of my own psyche... I danced ballet for 20 years - from the age of 4 until I was 24. I have always been little and in shape. So when I say that I see pictures of myself and all I can see is fat, I'm being a little dramatic.
A good friend of mine just sent me an article about "mom guilt" that I loved and had to share. I hadn't heard the term "mom guilt" before. I guess I live under a rock because after a quick Google search, I saw it was everywhere. There are different types of mom guilt; new-mom guilt, working mom guilt and just plain old mom guilt.
I never knew that typing three little letters could stir up so many emotions. MIL. (Incase you don't know what MIL stands for - it's Mother-In-Law.) <sigh> I'm hoping all of you reading this blog have a GREAT relationship with your MIL. Mine on the other hand, could use a little work. It's a little, um, tense, at the moment.
