They say "9 months on..9 months off" when referring to that not so fun, but oh so necessary baby weight. Well, 4 months in and I have 6.8 lbs to go! I can tell you that I gained 40lbs with Graham (I will not share that final number with you...as it is scary, very scary). Finding the time to exercise is exhausting in itself but my walks/runs are getting in there. I may only have 7 ish pounds to go, but my wardrobe is still no where near jumping back on this bod. How is that possible?? Oh that's right. 2 babies in 19 months leaves wider hips and a little belly that isn't budging. But you know, these are my trophies to wear. My "battle scars", my "mommy marks". I will take them any day if I got these two kids out of it.
Last time when I stopped breastfeeding Anna, I lost an additional 10lbs. This is my goal again. Get to my pre-pregnancy weight, then chop off an additional 10-15lbs.
Just stop forgetting to eat and then stopping for a quick drive through meal. I have to keep repeating this to myself....some days are better than others.
