I started obsessing with my weight a few weeks ago. Well let’s be honest, almost 8 months ago. That’s when I had my second child. Since that beautiful day I’ve been struggling to lose all that precious baby weight I gained and it’s been awfully hard.
First and foremost, it’s hard staying on a diet when you have a toddler who loves pancakes and a husband who likes fried chicken. A LOT. But it’s even more difficult when you don’t know how to cook! Yes, I will admit it, I have zero skills in the kitchen.
I’ve been trying to learn since I have kids because obviously they need food, right? But don’t worry I just mastered making rice and beans for my boy, that’s the one thing he won’t refuse eating.
I started watching these promising videos on YouTube, I even signed up to one of those programs that help you excersice and give you some recipes “you can make by yourself at home” but come on! Who knows how to make Baked Pita Crisps with Capsicum dip? Sounds good, seems good but that’s not something someone with no skills in the kitchen will know how to do. More importantly, who has the time to spend half a day cooking?
Obviously I don’t.
And now you are wondering, why would I spend half a day in the kitchen? Well, when you start a diet you must eat at least five meals a day and that’s five times doing the dishes. You will use everything you have in there to make a salad. Funniest thing is, you will cook this Oh-so-elaborate recipe and you will probably only eat a tiny bite of it.
So that’s the reason I ate a cheeseburger last night.
Let’s be honest we don’t need all those crazy diets. Let’s just eat healthy and drink a lot of water, maybe that will do. Right?
I pledge to myself;
I will stop trying to lose weight and I will start worrying about my health rather than my not even close to flat belly.
I believe we need to love our bodies as they are, perfectly imperfect, full of flaws. And, that’s okay because that is what make us all different and beautiful.
Stop struggling to have that perfect beach body we all see on Instagram and all over social media because you already have that beach body!
You just need a bodysuit and confidence!
Are we ready for the summer?
