First Monday Mamavation post
I have struggled with weight all my life. I have been an emotional eater since I was a little girl. I have lost the weight with diets and then gained back, and gained even more.
After my pregnancy, my son was sick, things were stressful at home and I gained a lot of weight. That has created a lot of issues with my husband and I lose weight and then I gain it back, and the cycle continues.
Things have been rough lately, so I gained the weight back. I have been following Leah (Mamavation creator) for a while and some of the girls that are in the sistahood. I did not have a blog, and I felt intimidated about creating one. English is not my fist language and I do not always feel comfortable writing on it. I knew I need my bog in English if I wanted to apply for the sistahood but I was terrified.
I am also terrified about sharing my weight. Since it has been such a struggle since I was a little one, I have always wanted it to be a private issue. But I guess that you need the support and maybe that being scared and trying to hide have contributed to my weight gain.
So here I am. Open with my weight, my struggles and pretty much my life. I know the journey is not going to be easy. I do not like to exercise and I am really afraid of all the routines I will be doing, but I have seen all the ladies achieve goals with Mamavation, so here I am.
I am ready yes. I am scared YES, but most of all I am in changing mode. Changing my life style. I have done diets before but if I have learned something from the Mamavation ladies is that is not about a diet, is about changing your life style. Committing to be active and eat healthier.
I want to join the sistahood because I need the advice and support of all the ladies but also because I might be able to give someone a boost to keep try next to me.
I will not be able to join tonight show. I am going to a Jazzercise class. Yes, I do not like to exercise, so I am making it fun. But I have already made public on twitter my desire of join the sistahood, I will be twitting, and next Monday I will be there on the show and with hopes that @bookieboo asks me to join.
I am also thinking that I want to apply for the next campaign, but for now I just want for all you ladies to take me on and start making new friends and find the support that I need and also maybe inspire some other people too.
Congratulations on opening up on your weight! That's a huge step (at least it was for me), and it's so great to get support from the Mamavation Sistahood, they are all awesome.
