Just a quick note. Today as I was standing in my living room I put my hands on my hips (as I’ve done a million times before) and a funny thing happened.  My hands, which usually rest firmly on my muffin top, slipped down my side. I didn’t notice it at first, but when I went to go put my hands on my hips again, it happened again. I stood there, putting my hands on my hips over and over again and letting them slide down my side. I can honestly say I NEVER thought I would have that sensation again.

Moms out there, I know what it’s like to look at your post pregnancy body and think,”My body will NEVER be the same again!” That horrifying feeling you get when you catch the first glimpse of yourself  in the mirror. After a difficult pregnancy and spending 2/3rds  of  it on modified bed rest, my weight had ballooned to over 250 lbs!!  I remember the first time I truly looked at myself after having my second son. I stood in my bedroom and cried. While I was overwhelmed with the joy of a new baby, in the back of my mind, I had given up on my body.

My journey with Alana began almost a year before I started blogging. I sent my first tweet when my son was 3 months old. She responded to every question I had and encouraged me before she even knew who I was! I can’t say enough how thankful I am for her and her constant support.  I cannot recommend her training enough! It is the best solution for stay at home moms, and moms in general in my opinion.

Moms, you can do it!  It’s a slow process and it takes determination. I still have 40 more pounds to go, but I’m more determined now than ever!  Until I reach my goal, I will be eating clean, training hard, and enjoying the beautiful boys God has given me!

Thank you for following my journey and feel free to tweet me at @michelleamy2 of you have any questions!
