I’m Tonya, 26, I am a married mother of 1. My son is 3 and amazing. A brief background for anyone who chooses to follow my fitspirational blog…In high school I was incredibly active. I ran track and cross country as well as played soccer and softball. I tore my ACL and my meniscus in my right knee my senior year of high school during a soccer game. I went to college. I drank beer. A lot. I chased my alcohol with McDonalds. I smoked. A lot. I got pregnant. I ate. I finished college. I ate. I got married. I ate some more. The problem here is that I have never once felt bad about myself, I don’t consider myself fat. I weigh 203 pounds and I love myself. Too much. I have never cared what anyone ever thought of me because even in high school with a super athletic build I weighed 158 pounds. Who cares. It’s just a number. I have cleaned up my diet with the help of my husband who has a job that requires him to eat healthy and be in shape. Luckily my kid loves fruits and vegetables and would take carrots and peas over a happy meal any day which is so weird in bizarre I can’t handle it. However, I have decided to change my lifestyle. I eat relatively healthy nowadays anyway and have for quite some time with the exception of the occasional “cheat meal” which is always a cheeseburger. I still smoke but I am working on kicking it. I have set up a list of goal weights for myself but I’m not putting my faith in the scale, I’ll put it in my favorite pair of Levi’s. Feel free to ask me questions or follow me. I’m jumping back on the wagon after a small hiatus of letting myself go. I will quit smoking by the end of my journey. This is a journey for my health not my appearance and it is a journey I am glad to take knowing that it may give me more time with son and any future children I may be crazy enough to have.
