I have been struggling with self image since having my second baby.
After having my first baby, I lost all my weight within two weeks.
After my daughter it stuck around until I joined weight watchers.
Now... now I am a whopping 220lbs.

I feel fat and ugly.
I feel lazy and tired.

I need to loose weight, but I not just because I want to look better.
I need to do it to feel better, be healthy and do it for my children.

I also need to remember though, that God loves me no matter what I look like.
He made me perfect.

I love this song and could listen to it forever.

I know. I just want to be healthy for my kids. I am so tired all the time and I know it's because of being overweight and eating junk foods.

Thank you for the encouragement!

Weight is just a number. focusing on how you actually physically and emotionally feel on a day to day basis is a much easier task to tackle. Eating a little bit healthier each day and trying to go on as many walks as possible with your little ones is a great place to start. Love yourself up as much as possible, because the more you love you the better you're going to take care of yourself instinctively.

Keep smilin' mama! :) You are loved.
