Did some one say work out???

I know what you are thinking!!! Crystal why do you start off a blog with a picture like this? Today we are starting not a diet but a live it!! I hate the word diet it just sounds bad.....but a live it that sounds fun.....right?
So I know that in now way do I resemble this girl in the above picture. I remember the days though....You know before you had two kids. That I could go somewhere in my bathing suite and not want to just stay in my clothes. I mean really why can't I get into the pool in a pair of capris and a t-shirt?? There is something having children can do on the body that is do you say.....Just makes it not look like this girl. Especially after you have nursed two babies! Because mine don't look anything like this girls! LOL Are you thinking "Why am I reading this?"
So my hubby is wanting to loose weight and so I am being a supportive wife and doing it with him! Not only are me and hubby doing it, but my father in law and CD. We are all doing work outs too!! I don't want to loose weight I just want to loose the stuff that flaps a little more than it used to like:
*My arms in church when I clap.
*My stomach how it bounces when we hit bumps in the car.
*Not have to "suck in" to put on jeans in the morning.
*To walk out in my bathing suit and not be so embarrassed.....Can I HAVE A WITNESS??
So I am excited.....I really am. I am looking forward to being a more healthy me.

Where on earth did you find that photo of me? Just kidding...I'm waiting for the day it's OK to wear sweatsuits in a swimming pool!
You go girl and I'll be rooting for you all the way. Debbie

Wow- to have that body...well, I guess I would have to expend energy towards that...and I have other priorities at the moment- like the fruit tarte I bought from the French nun at Kane County..and now my teenage grils are all dieting for proms so no one wants any. Well, see if I let it go to waste (waist!)Good luck on your live it.

Amen Sister! I had my first Green Smoothie this afternoon. I told my daughter when she got home from school tasted like what faeries would eat. Kinda like I was drinking Spring! You go Girl!

P.S. I didn't even have that body before kids, heehe....I was a skinny ol boney thing. I finally got a set of "Gals" when I was pregnant and was happy to see them go when I was done.....they get in the way!!

I have big boobs...but I have big everything...I am also working on the bod...but only surgery would give me a midsection like skin just tore...I had zero elasticity during my pregnancies!!! Now all I am left with is loose skin - lovely I know!!! My swim suit now consists of a one piece with a skirt at the bottom. My two piece bathing suits are sad! I used to look pretty good back in the day!

I think I had that body when I was 12, and had virtually no body fat to speak of. Except then I had no boobs. What a trade off huh?

Good luck on being healthier. I'm doing that as well these days, but something tells me I'm never going to be the gal in that picture. :)
