As good as it gets

I went to the doctor this week, and while I was there they weighed me....and I weighed the same as I did when I was NINE months pregnant with McKenna. (Exactly the same.) My initial reaction was, "I've got to lose weight!!!!" But then I remembered the last time I decided to lose weight and did not want to repeat that experience. The funny thing is, when I walked into the doctor's office I felt good about the way I looked. I decided a while ago to try to treat my body well and then trust that it would go to it's naturally healthy state. And I have tried my best to follow that plan. I haven't been perfect-- I still don't weight train and sometimes eat too much junk. But I have honestly given my best effort, and now it's time to accept my body and whatever number it rings up on the scale. It still isn't perfect. I am not the size or weight I used to be. My belly isn't flat and my tush isn't toned. But this is as good as it gets. And I have to admit... it's not bad.

I think I am on the verge of the same conclusion you have reached. What a happy place. I hope to be comfortably there soon.

Also, my dr's scale told me I was 5 lbs heavier than my home scale this week. How rude. But, I was differently attired from at home, sweater, sneakers, etc. Those make a difference.

I'm glad to see young, beautiful girls accepting the fact that we aren't 16 anymore. Jessi, you are perfect! You have 5 beautiful girls to show for that beautiful body of yours. I remember when I was 150 lbs. at the age of 29. I had had 3 kids and didn't want to be fat and 30 so I dieted to 125. Now I wish I could be 150 again.hahaha. I thought that was fat. I'm 50 now and it's taken me all these years to accept the fact I will never be what I was. I'm proud of you!!
