Not to get skinny but to get stronger. I remember there was a time when I first started this weight loss journey my ultimate goal was to get to 125 lbs. My goal was to fit into those jeans hiding in the back of my closet. After 2 kids in 3 years your body just doesn’t go back right to where it was. I remember saying to myself, I just want to be skinny again. I ate right, I worked out 5 times a week and I drank the amount of water I was suppose to. Pounds started to shed, my waist was smaller than a 28 and I was elated. I meal prepped every Sunday for the entire week and people started noticing how small I was getting. None of my work clothes fit and even my work out clothes got so big on me.


One day I was running on the treadmill and I looked around and noticed some women in my opinion that didn’t need to work out. That didn’t have any fat on their bodies and in my head I started thinking…..Why are they here? I mean it was motivation to see women take such pride in their health and bodies but really, running on the treadmill with the higher incline on! Now your just trying to make me look bad.

I remember the morning I stepped on the scale and I reached my goal weight! My first thoughts were I want wings & fries and then my thought was now that I hit my goal weight, whats next move for me? I want to feel stronger. Going to the gym and working out does not just make you feel stronger physically but it makes you feel stronger mentally. My goal is not just to maintain the weight I am now but to have more definition in my body. When I hit the gym, I leave all of my worries at the door and I put my game face on! I am learning that it doesn’t matter to much about what the scale says but more about how you feel about yourself. I continue to do this because one day I want some one to say to me, that I inspired their journey of a healthy life style.

    1. Sometimes we need to pig out! It’s healthy and normal! Its even more important to get back on track! #keeppushing

  1. You do inspire, because I cannot imagine how busy you must be with two little ones! I have a full-time career that has me traveling a lot and I am a stepmom, but my husband’s kids are older. I know I need to get myself into the gym – for my health – but lately, I’ve been letting work rule my life. I’m getting there. You’ve reminded me of my priorities. Health first. Thank you for that.

    1. So happy I could help! It’s very easy for us to put everything in front and over our needs! But if you break down, nothing will get done! Take time out for you! Even if its 10 minutes! #keeppushing

    1. You have to know your workout style! When I was first losing weight I knew I had to be in a setting where someone will push me!

  2. Congrats on wanting to be strong plus your goal weight. I think when you hit the goal weight everyone has to have a shift that exercise and eating healthy is not just a temporary goal but now a lifestyle that makes you feel good.

  3. Great job! I think feeling stronger is a great motivation to go to the gym. Weight can yo-yo, so concentrating on how you feel is awesome.

  4. Congrats on your success! We don’t have gym memberships but have been recently looking into getting them. Theres just so much time in a day and it is sometimes easier just to exercise at home or outdoors.

    1. I can agree with this! I have 2 little ones so sometimes I can’t get out, stay tuned for workouts in the house! #keeppushing

  5. I am not skinny, but I am also not overweight more than about 10lbs. Sometimes people ask me why I need to workout, its for the sake of keeping up your body to live better and healthier really.

  6. I wish I thought the way you do. After 4 kids my body definitely isn’t the same and I yo-yo between 150-160lbs and my ideal weight would be 140. I give up trying to lose weight because as soon as I get out the gym I want something fattening to eat. 🙂

  7. What an inspiring story! I am definitely not at my goal weight. Three kiddos took a toll on my body, that is for sure, but I am finally getting to a place where I feel like I can move forward and start concentrating more on me.

    1. Thank you! Happy Mama, Happy Family! I will help you with whatever you need help with! Take time for you!

    1. The main thing is just staying focused! It’s normal to get off track but so important to get back on track! Good Luck! #keeppushing

  8. About 6 months ago I started eating clean & working out as it had been years! I have lost 45 lbs the ‘right’ way and am not looking back. I know I’ve inspired my daughter as she tells checks in with me every week – its the sweetest

  9. You are in fabulous shape – congrats!!! I love exercise, especially coming up to summer so this gets me more motivated!
