Have you ever woke up one day, you look in the mirror and you don’t remember your self looking like that person starring back at you? And don’t know how you got here? Well that was me, it was like I was in a fog and after it cleared I was in a different body then what I pictured in my head…. A much bigger person.
My name is Trisha, and I am going to blog my journey to find the smaller person I know I am and can be. I am a 30 year old wife and mother of 2 young boys. As of right now I am a stay at home mom, but looking for something part-time.
Backstory: After the birth of my first son, I lost all my baby weight and more before my 6 week check up. After the birth of my second I didn’t loose any, and I only gained 1 more lb then the first time. I think this was the time I went into my “fog” and didn’t pay attention to the person I was becoming. When I finally “woke up” I had to do a double and triple check in the mirror to make sure I was looking at myself right….was that me? I couldn’t believe that I had let myself get to this point, and when did I do it?
So I tried the whole, eating better thing, I joined a gym and was doing what I thought I needed to do. Nothing happened. I would try other diet programs, nothing happened. I got very discouraged. At this time my sister had signed up with Team Beachbody and was doing her thing with that after the birth of her 3rd child. I was a little on the hesitant side being nothing was working for me. But then she started to loose some serious weight, (33 lbs and 33.5 inches) So then I decided to give it a try.
So I signed up to coach right off the bat, figured if I am going to do this let’s go all out, plus I wanted the discount. I had just gotten my first bag of Chocolate Shakeology and was doing good drinking that when their new product came out….Ultimate Reset. I decided to give that a try (along with a few others for support) The Reset was not as hard as I thought it would be, but it was a different way of life. In the 3 weeks it takes for the Reset I lost 10 lbs and 11 inches! I felt great! I felt that person inside was wanting to get out and it WAS possible. So after the Reset I tried to keep it up on my own and well I “fell off the wagon” HARD! After gaining 3 lbs back I realized that I cant do this alone. I have bought myself a few new workout videos from Beachbody, ordered more Shakeology and ready to become the person I want to be.
As you can probably see that I am having a VERY hard time loosing this weight. I would have never thought it would be this hard or take this long. Every pound lost proves that I am doing something, just wish it was not so far inbetween.
