As I came to the realization I was being published, I decided that NOW would be the perfect time to finally take off those extra pounds gained after having three kids. The thought of my picture being taken and my future appearance at book signings made me yearn for my smaller clothes (not worn for so long they have probably gone out and back into style).
I traded a more active life (soccer player, runner, fire fighter and cop) to start a family, but I should have eaten healthier and exercised even after having children, despite being a busy mom. With effort, I could have worked it in, but I chose not to. Now I'm stuck with weight to lose. I believe, however, that I've finally found the inspiration to stick with a weight loss plan.
After much consideration, I'm posting my weight-loss goal.
