Sep 16, 2011

I can't believe it's been this long......
5 years ago I was given a second chance.
A lot has happened since... I lost 160 pounds in the 1st year... I had given it my all... watched what I ate, counted my proteins... went to the gym like crazy and loved it!!
Then I found out I was pregnant !!! I was soo shocked and happy, and also very worried for the baby that something would go wrong... so I stopped working, stopped exercising, started eating and snacking all the time (per nutrionniste that I had seen) and I ended up gaining 75 pounds!! 50 pounds I re-lost right after the baby but held on to the 25 extra and ended putting on another 30 pounds in the next 3 years...
So, I am giving myself a good kick in the .... and enrolled myself in a gym this week and have gone 4 days out of 5 and i'm surprised that I really like it even though I find it really really HARD!!!

I sometimes ask myself was it worth it ?
#1 reason is my Beautiful daughter Melodie.
#2 reason I am still 115 pounds lighter then I was.
#3 reason I take no medications, no health problems.
#4 reason I would have probably reached over 400 pounds and possibly dead or seriously sick...

This is therapeutic to write this down and makes me realize to not be so hard on myself sometimes.

All in all with the ups and downs it's been a great 5 years.
