This is Tracy, one of the guest blogger’s for www.dustinmaher.com
I actually asked Dustin if I could be a blogger, hoping it will help me with my accountability. Because to be honest, that is where I fall short in this whole weight loss journey every time. I have done Weight Watchers, and done well. As soon as I quit going, boom, it all comes back. Same with other things I have tried. So, I hope you don’t mind, but I am going to make myself accountable to YOU!
Over my many years of trying to “get healthy” and lose weight, I feel I have picked up the majority of the tools/knowledge I need to be successful in my journey. I have figured out what I “should” eat, I have found a great workout program that is affordable and fits my needs in Mamatone, and I really do want to be successful. I know I have said that before, but as I have recently turned 35, have two small children who are 5 (Maddy) and 1 ½ (Cayden), I know that my time is NOW. I just don’t know why I keep losing my way.
I have always been bigger, however as a child was always very active. I played sports all throughout school, including softball in college. I think that is what always kept me from being too overweight. However, as college ended and my forced workouts came to an end, I didn’t really pay attention to what was happening to my body. I mean, come on, I was too busy working, partying and eating out with friends in my 20’s to even realize I had put on about 50lbs. Then you put two kids, working full time, etc. on top of it, and well, I am here today to say, I don’t have the luxury to continue to be ignorant any longer.
So thanks for joining me on this journey, and as I check in with you each week, I will tell you about the challenges I faced (I am sure there will be many). And hopefully, the successes I have. (Lets hope the successes outweigh the challenges!)
