Hello everyone. I have been asked a bit about who I am, behind the blog and Instagram and why am I on the amazing journey that I am on. Well, that is both easy and hard to explain all rolled into one. So I will do the very best that I can.
Who am I?
I am a 5 foot nothing, 29 year old, Christian mommy of two. I have been married since the day after I turned 20 to my very best friend and soul mate. My kids are 4(daughter) and 18 months(son). Both were born via c-section due to complications. My dream growing up was to be a stay at home mommy, and I am living my dream. I am very blessed to be able to do so. I also have two fur babies. A Shih-Tzu named Fuzz Cakes and a "toy" Eskimo named Yahna. I live in Alabama. I am homeschooling my kids, my 4 year old is already doing kindergarten work and LOVES doing school work.
Why am I on my journey?
This is the tough one. I am one this journey mainly because I want to be healthy and a role model for my kids. I was tired of being overweight and unhappy. I hated what I saw every time I looked into the mirror and even more so in photos. I wanted to know what it felt like to truly "love the skin you're in".
As embarrassing as this is to admit, do y'all want to know what really pushed me over the edge? Why I felt I had to start this journey? I was watching an Alabama football game and reading the stats of the players. As the stats went by I realized that I weighed as much and MORE than some of those players! I weighed more than a 6+ foot tall FOOTBALL PLAYER! Like I said before, I am barely 5 foot tall. I couldn't imagine how I was still healthy and alive. My body should never have been carrying that much weight!
So, I guess those are my reasons for wanting to start this journey. And I am truly loving this journey. I find it absolutely amazing how I don't even recognize myself in some of my photos I take to post on Instagram for #transformationtuesday. I love the feeling. I also love how happy I look now in my photos. I look back at some of the photos from the past few years and I look sad. So sad. I thought I could hide that pretty well. Obviously, I couldn't. It's so clear in the photos.
If there is anything at all that you want to know about me, please ask. I am an open book. Thank you all for visiting. Much love and God Bless.
