Body After Baby Project: Week 6



I think I need to re-assess my original goal because there’s no way I can make it in a safe and healthy way. My original goal was to lose 10 pounds in ten weeks. Well, I’m 6 weeks into the BAB Project and I haven’t lost anything. I am struggling to find time to exercise, and have fallen back into bad eating habits.

HOWEVER, I made better shopping choices this week when I went to the grocery store. So that’s a start. I realize that I need to shift my focus and take even smaller steps than I’d originally planned. I thought that 10 pounds in 10 weeks was an attainable goal and once upon a time, before I was a mother and my life became hectic and busy it would have been. Obviously my steps need to be even smaller. I’m going to re-assess my goals, and will be posting them in next week’s BAB Project post.

You all, on the other hand, are doing marvelously. I do read your posts (even if I’m bad about commenting), and am so proud of all of you for sticking to it where I have not. I’ve felt a lot of guilt about starting a project on my blog, having people join, and then not following through myself. But I am only human and I am in no way, shape, or form perfect. Especially when it comes to weight loss and lifestyle changes. It’s tough, and this is the toughest it’s ever been on me. I’ve lost weight in the past… The first time I slimmed down I dropped almost 40 pounds. So it’s not like I can’t do it, or I don’t realize how. I’m just having a hard time right now and I need to take it slower than I ever thought I’d have to.

So… Next week, I will have new and more attainable goals for myself. Ones that I can actually be proud of keeping, and not keep being ashamed of missing my goal.
