Mama gotta get in those jeans!!!

Ladies… I’m sure I’m not the only one with that pair of jeans you keep holding on to in hopes you will one day zip them up and rock them out in public.. right!!??! I had my second… and most likely last baby girl the end of May 2017 and I am still carrying the baby weight. During my first pregnancy I gained 65lbs and lost pretty much all of it with the exception of about 10 lbs which I never really cared about because I knew I wanted to get pregnant again. Trying for baby number two was a little more complicated for us and took a year. With each month that went by not getting pregnant, the depression would set in and so would the not so great eating habits. Once I became pregnant … I was again high risk and decided with the exception of walking I would not workout. This pregnancy I gained 55lbs. The weight has come off and I am right back where I was after my first baby. Yes my pre- first baby clothes are fitting again… but what about those honeymoon clothes?!!! I am happy with myself because I know how far I have come and I am so blessed to have my two beautiful little girls, but this is about me. Before I became a mom, before I got married, I was very healthy and physically fit. I want that back. That tiny glimpse back to who I was. It may only be 15 lbs from where I am today but it’s a goal I am willing to work hard to achieve. I think it is so important to not lose sight of who you are as a person once you become a wife and a mother. I think knowing who you are, being comfortable in your skin, and loving yourself makes you an even better mother and wife. These jeans, they symbolize so much more than the size… to me it’s getting back to myself. I bought these jeans in the fall, as my goal jeans. When they came in the mail I couldn’t get them past my thighs. This is real talk right here! Today I tried them on…. they are right at my booty… progress yes but not on! My goal is to get them on … zipped… and to wear them to my daughter’s first birthday! There are so many great diets and exercise programs out there… how can you chose?!?!? My plan is to follow my body and give some of them a try and let you all know what I find! I have heard amazing things about a barre class you can do from home?!?! I cannot wait to try it and I’ll let y’all know what I think! 🙌🏼 I’m just a mama on a mission to get in these jeans… who’s with me?!?
