I am a bit excited about this new journey. I used to be a decently skinny girl. I was never a rail, but I sure was a lot healthier looking than I am now. I am a short woman, 5'3 or so. I was just about perfect (even though I thought I was fat) in high school. Well, I didn't realize just how easily pounds add on if you aren't active. By the time I was married, I had gained about ten pounds or so. After that, they just kept adding and adding. I would try things here and there to help get it off, but nope, I never did. I weigh more now that what I did going in to have Ruthie. It's a shame. What I see in the mirror is NOT what I see in my head, so it's very, very depressing. I am overweight and I hate it. I hate the way I look. I know I will never be skinny like I was in high school, but I want to be smaller and healthier so I will have more energy to be with my kids. So, I am starting this journey with the Body By Vi shakes. I am very excited. I have heard nothing but WONDERFUL things and today was my beginning. I have been walking with a great group of women and it's pushing me. I hope that with the exercising and shakes, I can "shake it off!" I want to be who I think I am, b/c what I see in that mirror, I.do.not.like. Please say a prayer for me so that I stick with it, and I pray that I can shake this off! If you are interested, please let me know!
Here is the best before picture I could find! Hope that this changes quickly! :)
