Even though it's COLD here in Virginia, there is evidence all around that spring is here, and warm weather is fast approaching. We all know what warmer weather means... Wedding season is upon us, family getaways to the beach are getting nearer, as well as many other reasons that force us to bare a little more skin than we do in the winter. I am dreading it, personally. I just had my son, Xander, in January, 12 months after my daughter, Sophie, was born. So I have darn close to 2 years worth of recent pregnancy under my belt, as well as 2 C-sections, and it doesn't leave me feeling very body-confident! You mamas know what I mean. Pregnancy changes a woman's body, and it's not always for the better. I for one have the dreaded belly pooch! I actually acquired it after my 11 year old was born, also by C-section, and it seems that my pooch has taken up permanent residence. (BOO!) I have lost almost 50 lbs since my daughter's birth, and luckily I didn't gain anything with my son that wasn't lost immediately after his birth. But I would still like to shed 20 more pounds by my 30th birthday at the end of June.
I have never been happy with my body, and have been guilty of resorting to very extreme measures to lose weight in the past. That is something I am not proud of at all, and not the example I want to set for my daughter. Yes, the things I did worked, and they worked quickly, but I was doing damage to myself in the process. What good is being thin if you're not healthy? No one looks good when they're sickly, regardless of the number on the scale. There is a ton of pressure nowadays from the media and society in general for women to look a certain way, and I have made the resolution to myself and to my children not to fall too deeply into old habits all in the sake of losing weight. If I lose weight, I am going to try my absolute hardest to do it right. My children deserve a healthy mama!
So as bathing suit season rapidly approaches, and my scale seems to be perpetually STUCK at 147lbs, I have been looking for a good way to shed a few unwanted pounds by summer in a sensible way. So when I was offered the chance to participate in Yoplait Light's Two Week Tune Up plan, I jumped at the chance! I LOVE Yoplait yogurt, and by following their plan, it is quite possible to lose 5lbs in just 2 weeks! And the best part is that this is a program that integrates sound nutritional choices with easy exercise, like walking. Now that it's finally warming up a little bit, I plan on taking the babies out for daily walks in my double-stroller anyway, so this plan will fit beautifully into my lifestyle. And Yoplait Light has so many delicious flavor choices, I know I won't get bored with the foods I am eating. I can literally have a different flavor of Yoplait Light every single day for over a month!
