Beginning the Journey

Nursing your baby is such a beautiful experience. You and baby gaze into each others' eyes and it produces such a bond. These are precious moments that become loving memories. Now...for the real issue at hand.
If you are like me, then you are a person who holds on to pregnancy weight while lactating. While I want to trim down and get back those washboard abs, I have to be balanced in doing this.
The first focus that I have is... my perception. How we think about ourselves plays a major role in how our body responds to us.If I look in the mirror everyday and tell myself how fat I look, then my body will respond to this by holding on to FAT!. We have control of how we think, look, and feel. So, instead of devaluing myself, I will love the skin that I'm in!
Everyday I will stand in the mirror and tell myself how beautiful I look. I will visualize myself being in tip- top shape, running on the beach in that hot swimsuit! I'm sure that we all have heard, 'You are what you eat'. Well, how about,'You are what you think'! Everything starts in our thinking.
I have a plan and this marks the beginning of my journey from: Chunkalicious to Curvaceous!
Comment! Share your plans for going from Chunkalicious to Curvaceous! The journey is better when we complete it together!
