Who among us couldn’t stand to lose a few pounds or to be in better shape? Do you dread going to the doctor because you’re going to receive the obligatory “You need to lose weight?” lecture? Is your weight contributing to other health issues?
In a world where the media has shaped how both men and women look at their bodies, I think the majority of women have a poor self-image, regardless of weight, shape, or size. Let’s face it, we weren’t all born to be Victoria’s Secret models, but that doesn’t mean we all aren’t beautiful in our own ways. After all, we are all military spouses – which already makes us ten times stronger than our civilian counterparts! Not everyone can (or does) cope well with our military lifestyle.
Both blogger Vanessa and I have recently had babies, and are working toward losing that baby weight (and then some!). We are starting a new blog series here at MyMilitaryLife to hold each other accountable. Losing weight and getting in shape is so much easier with the support of your friends and community. We hope to share our strategies and our healthy recipes with you, as well as our progress. We invite you to join us, whether your goal is weight loss, leading a healthier lifestyle, or looking for someone to commiserate with while you try to stick to that New Year’s Resolution.
What do you do to try to maintain a healthy weight? Do you try fad diets or simply watching your calories? Are you using any “apps” to help you? How did you determine your goals? Tell us in the comments!
