After having three kids, I really want to get back to my pre pregnancy weight/shape. I find myself thinking back and wishing myself back to that. I know that will take a lot of work, so that's why I joined (and keep coming back) to Sparkpeople. This community is absolutely amazing. I work full-time as a cook at a Pizza restaurant.
I'm always in need of motivation, so that's what I'm looking for. I really just feel inadequate most of the time, and I can't stand that.
Maybe it's all in my head.. but I doubt it. Every picture I look at with myself in it, I just put it down and roll my eyes and say "ugh." I feel like someone jolly whose face is always big and red. LOL. I like being jolly.. but without the Santa features. I laugh, a lot. I also love music, a lot. I don't feel I can function without either of those.
I would also love nothing more in the world to establish good eating habits for my girls so they don't get to where I am and feel this way, ever. I know society has become harsher over time. It was harsh in my time and I know it will be 20x worse on them in their time. I want them to feel just awesome about themselves. Plus, actually be healthy and lead to healthy futures(without heart disease and obesity, and everything common now days).

    Hi Shayla, and welcome to Leaving 170-ville! Heh-heh...I see we have the same tracker. Mine is for the Winter Solstice---it's my Anniversary.

    I was a professional cake decorator and baker for a year in NYC---it's hard work!! (And hard not to taste stuff on the job, except I find most icing disgusting.)

    Good luck reaching your goals. You can do it! Baby steps!
