Fitmom…hmmm…

Just my opinion on this…and remember opinions are like buttholes…we ALL have them! 🙂

SO…

I think she looks amazing. I don’t see anything wrong with the picture that she posted with her kids. I really do not understand what all the uproar is about. I know…I know…we are all embracing being “curvy”. I tried to embrace the curvy look. I really gave it a shot…unfortunately I do not become “curvy” when I pick up weight…I become round. I was uncomfortable. Sick. I was not embracing anything at all. Deep down inside we all want to look like that young mother…but it is easier to find ways to say that we cannot. It is easier to say ITS NOT FAIR…or SHE HAS MONEY…

I think she has determination to do what needs to be done to stay in shape.  Now…she could have worded what she said maybe a little differently…AND…you can still be larger and in shape (sometimes it IS genetics involved where you can just be slim…but still out of shape)…

I worked a fulltime job, my husband was deployed and I had two children with pets.  I have high blood pressure, hypothyroid (I have no thyroid it was burned out a long time ago), and was clinically depressed on meds that literally packed the pounds on you.  I was able to acheive this look in my mid thirties and maintain this look until about two years ago:

This is my CURVY about 9 months ago:

2013-02-05_10.20.42[3] Curvy?? I would have to say ROUND people.  I think I prefer the in shape look.

My point being…that picture my blood pressure was out of control, drinking, medications, I was miserable, AND I had stopped watching my diet and exercise.  I had a million excuses for myself…and to me an excuse is a lie.  You are lying to yourself and others.  I just couldn’t embrace my “curves”.  I felt terrible.  Size acceptance is a wonderful thing but for me to accept this would be a state of denial.  I was killing myself.

THANKFULLY…I don’t look like that anymore. wpid-20130924_142535.jpg (I’ve actually lost another 10 pounds from this picture)  I have cut out all the junk food and I have started being active again.  Just walking up and down the hill made a difference…and all the fast food is a memory to me.  I was 37 years old in the fit picture.  I am 44 now and I know that it will take a lot of work to get back there…I am happy looking like I do today.  If I could snap my fingers or take a pill and look like Fit Mom or even any resemblance to what I acheived 7 years ago I would happily take it and do it.

I’m not hating on that woman and what she acheived…it really can be done it just takes patience and time.  There is always a modification to any plan that will make it suitable for you.  80% of the journey is your diet…so if you can’t exercise…focus on what you eat.  It may make a difference.

I’ve been on both sides…
