It’s been 2 weeks

The first week was rough.  The program is strict and I didn’t like the shakes at first.  I’m use to eating whatever I want really and I sit at a desk all day.  I almost feel like I’ve taken advantage of the fact that Mark loves me no matter what size I am.  I actually apologized to him yesterday which made me cry.  He always stays in such good shape and I’ve done him a dis service by being his “fat” wife.  Then he held me while I cried and said it wasn’t a big deal which of course made me cry even more.

This second week has been better.  Mark does all the shopping and he is a great cook.  I asked him to start making dinners as healthy as possible and he’s even packing me snacks for work.  I actually look forward to my shakes now.  I am adding blueberries to the morning shake and having a chocolate Isadelight in the afternoon.  I’m down 4 lbs!

I also can’t believe how much Isagenix costs!?.  We aren’t really that tight on money but that doesn’t mean I am not a thrifty gal.  We save money every month and are on track for an early retirment (yea!).  If this stuff keeps working like it is (btw, I love the taste) I have a few girlfriends who could lose some weight as well.

The biggest mountain I’m tackling

I’m super successful at a lot of things in my life.  I’m a great mother and wife.  I have a fantastic job that I’m very good at as well.  I have a wonderful circle of friends and I contribute as much as I can to our community.  The one thing I struggle constantly with is my weight.

I’m 40 years old and last year decided I want to get involved with body building.  I know this sounds ridiculous because I’m 50 lbs overweight but ever since I was little I’ve always looked at the girls in the magazines and wished I could look like that.  This is a really big step for me – but I decided I better go big or go home.  My whole life I’ve been overweight.   I don’t mean “a little chubby” – I mean straight up fat.  (My husband asked me if I was going to post a picture of our family…ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!)  He always tells me I’m beautiful but let’s be honest – I’m still fat.

Mark is a gem and able to see through anybody’s physical appearance.  Obviously- he married me.  But he had a good friend in highschool, Ryan who was really overweight.  Mark connected with him last year on fb and didn’t hardly recognize him because Ryan had lost over 100 lbs.  When I saw Ryan’s picture I messaged him right away and asked him how he did it.  He put me in contact with his buddy Todd (www.loveislife.com) who got me hooked up with Isagenix.  Let the mountain be moved!
