Another thing to consider was the fact that I was waiting tables for the last 15 years. That's right, since I was 15! I love interacting with people and I love the instant money. What I didn't love was the late night "lets grab some beer and wings" that happened on a content basis. I wouldn't get out of work until 10 or so most nights and I would indulge in late night eating and drinking. The weight piled on.
Forward to June 18th when I took on the Cinch Challenge. Since finding out I was selected, I quit my waitressing job and have now spent the majority of my time outside at the beach, riding my bike and just frolicking. I have fewer pounds and a killer tan to show for it! I am sad that I let myself go mentally and physically for so long. I guess being a parent doesn't make me a prisoner. In fact, last weekend we all went camping!
Two weeks from today is my 31st birthday. Hopefully I can meet my first goal by then. Shortly thereafter is my friend Kelly's wedding. I ordered my bridesmaid's dress a size small to give myself some incentive to lose a little extra weight.
By this time, 6 months from now, I am going to take some pictures of me at Christmas with my beautiful boys and a whole lot less of me!
