Story telling!

IMG_0459 editHello everyone!

Hypnoz Glam is officially here! I’ve gone and done it. I’d like to take the moment to give my appreciations to all of you who have encouraged and supported me in the decision-making of this journey.

This is my very first post and I’m so excited!  However, I will be real with you; well, I will always be. 🙂

You see, I’ve been wanting to blog for a long time, but I always came up with an excuse! I was not ready to put myself out there and welcome the criticisms. Early this year, I made the resolution to finally blog  and to be honest with you, I almost failed again. Among my many excuses is the weight I gained. I recently gave birth to a bouncy beautiful baby girl and I’m still battling the weight; and as much as I tried to convince myself that I need to give it some time, there come moments when I feel uncomfortable and wish that I could be back to my usual size in a shorter time frame. That been said, I’ve been procrastinating about launching my blog. My perfect plan was to lose a few pounds first since I wanted to post current pics of me, but it is so hard this time around. Of course my husband thought I look beautiful regardless, and wanted me to go ahead and launch the blog… Of course I’ve said no, but the speech he gave me before taking these pictures (below) was so uplifting and a wake up call to me so much that even though it was not plan at all, I accepted his challenge and agreed to make this my first post.

I’m all about loving yourself no matter what. I tell my kids not to worry about how society perceives us and that all women are beautiful regardless of their shape, their size, their color etc. So why am I worrying about the wrong thing?  Even though I’m not feeling comfortable in my skin – mostly in my clothes 🙂 – at this point of my life, I have to embrace who I am now while working on getting back in shape. I’m a fitness person, and I try to eat clean – not only so that my clothes can fit how I like them to, but mostly for my health and well being. I know it’s relatively hard to get your body back after going trough the miraculous journey of giving life. It’s even harder after 3 kids, but I did it twice and I can do it again. Putting a dream on hold  just because we do not look like we thought we should seems unfair… and ungrateful. It could be worse, it could be far worst. Life is so short!

 So back to the outfit… Again, it wasn’t quite the plan. I was getting  ready to go out with a girlfriend, and my husband started snatching some pics while I was trying on a couple of shoes. I was having fun posing for him and he suggested that I used this as my first post … And here we are!

Thank you for reading!  I know this is a long post, but let’s see it as the first post buzz 🙂 … and if you’d like to see more of me and my posts or how I am doing with my “back-in-shape” quest, come back soon or better yet, subscribe to my blog’s posts.

 

Thank you so much for visiting me!  Have a great day!
