I have struggled with my weight pretty much my whole life. When I was in elementary school, I was definitely "chubby". My father would tell you I was fat, although he didn't do anything to help me not be fat. I'd lose weight, gain weight, lose weight, gain weight, etc...you know the deal, the yo-yo dieter. That started at a very young age.
I am pretty happy with my body. Note the word "pretty". I have been at the weight I am at now for about 9 months or so. It's been constant, fluctuating just like any weight does because of excess water weight and stuff like that. I really wish I could be about 5 pounds lighter, but not sure that is in the cards. Currently, I am 5'5 and weigh around 133-135. That's where it is almost EVERY day. I was hoping to be 130 or so.
I workout faithfully about 6 times a week. I said to Kip the other day, "I can't believe I haven't lost any more weight. I workout more than I ever have...you would think it would be flying off me." Really...I think I should have lost a little bit. I know, however, I am in the best physical condition of my life. That number just gets me. I should throw out the scale I think. Granted, I don't eat perfect. I certainly have a cookie or two but believe me, I don't overdo it. And I think for the amount of work I do, I should be allowed to eat a little junk. There might be the problem.
Kip has a different take on it. He seems to think it's because I am not eating often enough. He says I might not be getting enough calories and I should eat smaller meals. That's hard to do. I find it to be tough when I am running around all of the time.
I have also mentioned to Kip that I would like to join a gym when Nicholas goes to kindergarten in the fall. I LOVE to exercise, but I am very limited on what I can do here at the house. Maybe I need to shock my body with some different exercises. Who knows? If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
Maybe my weight shouldn't be a concern. My BMI is good after all. In the end, maybe I don't weigh too much...maybe I'm just right.
