i jiggle when i walk

** men, be forewarned, this may not be a post you want to read **
Yes, that's an issue for me. I confess it. But my question is... WHAT do you do about it?? Are big girls just bound to jiggle? Ugh. Walking has managed to bring out a whole new list of worries for me, lol. However, I did find that my "shape-up" knock offs do manage to keep the back parts in place, but my goodness. Sometimes it feels like Santa gave ME his bowl-full-of-jelly-belly in my stocking. Take it BACK, Santa!! Despite the wobbles, walking is making a big impact on me! I feel like I have more energy, I'm staying up with the housework, schoolwork, churchwork, kidswork, much better than I had before I started walking. It's been two weeks and already I can feel a difference in my body. Already two things that were health issues before are rectifying themselves, praise the Lord! I think the combination of me time and exercise time is a great thing! I love it :) I also love that this is not just for me. It's for a much greater cause! All children deserve a good education. After what Haiti has been through over the past several months, at least two more children deserve the priviledge of going to school! I see their faces when I walk and I pray for them. There are some days, those thoughts are the ones that keep me pushing through the tired muscles. Please keep the kids and the missionaries at RHFH lifted up in your prayers.

Until next time - I walk on :)

Jen,
I bought the 'knock off' Spanx they have at Target. I found they weren't "industrial strength" like I needed. LOL
I purchased long leg old fashioned girdles (one black, one white) at Walmart. Paid about $12 I think. They've worked great. Lots of latex so they hold well, are comfortable and best of all NO JIGGLING! :)

I also bought long leg UnderArmor compression shorts to go over them. Didn't wanna look like I was wearing my undies in public :)

If you're doing the M4M half with Ruthie, I'll hopefully see you at the meet up on Aug 7.

I can so relate to the jiggling! :-) I've been trying to get motivated to want to eat better and exercise! So good for you!

God bless you with homeschooling your boys. We'll be starting our 5th year homeschooling in a couple weeks! My daughter is 14 and will be beginning 9th grade. Deciding to homeschool was one of the best decisions we could have made!

I look forward to reading more of your blog! Have a great day!
