As I mentioned in my bio, one of my overall beauty-related goals is to finally shed the baby weight that has stuck around since my son’s birth two years ago.
November marks the one year anniversary of my divorce becoming final, as well as my 31st birthday. After adjusting to the single mom life and getting into a pattern of living, I think I’m finally ready to tackle this challenge and work on matching my outward apperance to my inner one.
Despite the fact that my life is busier and more hectic than ever, inside, I am the happiest and most well-adjusted I’ve felt in years — I am at peace with who I am and enjoying life with my son.
However, the stress from the past few years has taken a toll, and I’ve decided to officially start battling the bulge(s). After putting this off for a year, I know it’s time. I wish I could say I’m happy living large, but I’m not,and that’s the truth of it all.
This is a beauty-related blog, and it encompasses all parts of beauty — inner and outer, top to bottom. Once I get a handle on my burgeoning weight issues, I’ll feel a heck of a lot better about myself, and for accountability’s sake, I’ll take you all along for the journey, as long as it will take. For the record, I’m giving myself a year to lose my goal of 50 pounds. Eeep, I can’t believe I’m admitting that, but there you go ….
In the next few “Battle of the Bulge” posts, I’ll take you back to the root of the problems, and discuss my plans to work on my outer beauty issues a bit futher.
Are you all in? I know I am!
