My Weight Loss Challenge

For the past four years, I have been trying to get down to my pre-baby weight. I will make some progress then fall off the wagon, never reaching my goal. My son is now a bona fide pre-schooler, so the concept of calling it my “pre-baby weight” is even getting a little laughable.

I have been a client at Fitness on the Run for many years and I got in the best shape of my life right before I had my first child thanks to Adrien (or as I call her, “AMC”), one of the owners.

Fitness on the Run has been so committed to trying to help me get my eating and fitness in order, yet I continue to disappoint both them and myself–try as I may.

I have no decided I need a new strategy: public shame. To be clear, I know I am not “fat,” I just have some weight to lose. In my husband’s words, I am not fat, just “fatter than I want to be.” The worst consequence of this status is that I have all these beautiful clothes sitting in my closet that don’t fit me! At some point, this isn’t a vanity issue or even a health issue, it is a fiscal issue.

So, I have decided to set a goal for myself and blog about it on Fitness on the Run’s website. My goal is to lose 10 pounds in one month for the 10-year anniversary party of my store, The Shoe Hive. To follow my weight loss journey, to find out how much I weight, for a picture of my goal dress and to discover my weight loss rules, check out my first blog post. And wish me luck…
