So...yeah. It's been a few weeks. You know what that means, right?
We went on vacation and then for some reason I really had a hard time getting back into things when we got back. Perhaps it had something to do with the fact I was eating Twizzlers, fun size candy bars, and Starbursts for breakfast in Florida. Not sure.
But last week I finally got back on the horse. I got serious at the gym and stayed within my points everyday. So here's the update since I started...again, that was approximately 5 weeks after Natalie was born.
Weight loss since last reported: 5.5 lbs.
Total weight loss: 31 lbs.
Also, something exciting comes with this new weigh in. I have finally reentered the world of ONE-derland! Now, at first this was not something I was all psyched up to share. Seeing as saying you have entered into one-derland is admitting that at one time you were actually in the TWOs. Which no one wants to say. But there you have it. I was there. Granted, I was there because I was pregnant...but I was still in it for 6 months after my sweetie was born so I can't blame her for everything now can I.
Truth is, I've been there before. I lost 75 lbs. before I got married and I vowed I would never be that heavy again. I wanted to make sure I was at a healthy weight before I got pregnant so I would never have to see those numbers again. Unfortunately, it didn't quite work out that way. I gained some weight back during the first few years of our marriage (who doesn't?)...not nearly as much as I lost...but enough that when I got pregnant I knew I was going to see those dreaded numbers again. It was frightening to see the weight come on as quickly as it did. I found it incredibly easy to lose myself in pregnancy and not worry about what I was eating. That is a mistake I will not make again.
I made a vow to Matt that I would not harass him about having another child until I reached my goal weight. I have a long way to go but I feel like I'm in the groove. I'm gonna do it. I've done it before...and I can do it again. And then the next time I get pregnant I won't have to lose the baby weight + all the extra fluff! And there's motivation in another squishy little newborn :)
So how are y'all doing?
