OK. How did I get off track here? And what I mean by that is… how did I gain so much weight? UGH!! AHHH!

It starts with:

“My jeans have shrunk. I think I’ll stick to sweats… every day.”

“My mirrors are off.”  “I’m bloated”

And then, my C section scar starts to look like a distant patio under an awning of pale pillows.

And now it’s time to admit, I’ve gained a lot of weight. And I feel kind of gross. And I can’t wear most of my clothes.

The annoying part is, I don’t even feel like I’ve been eating that much!! I haven’t been exercising, that’s for sure (searching for small toys isn’t burning many calories, I guess.)

And now, it’s time. But I don’t believe in diets or juice fasts or any fasts… I believe in clean, healthy eating and exercise and water. I’ve found a fantastic plan that is so healthy and doable, I’m actually excited (I won’t bore you with details unless you are interested… message me if you want to know I’m doing this with a friend. I’ve never really done the buddy system in this way before, but we will be emailing and checking in…. wanna join me?? 🙂

So today, it starts. The health. The drinking more water. The finding a way to get 30 minutes of exercise a day, even if it means jogging in place while S naps. It’s happening! AND NOT JUST SO I WILL LOOK GOOD, but so I’m healthier and feel better. MORE ENERGY to look for Small Toys.

I took some before photos… which I WILL NOT SHARE WITH YOU GUYS!!! (OK, maybe when I get a good after photo in a few months)

So that’s it!

    We’re in the same boat! I’m horrified at the extra layer of blubber I’ve put on this past winter. Here’s to health!

    I felt horrified by my weight gain before I got pregnant but now I look back longingly. ;). My workouts begin in a month! Hopefully nursing helps. 😉

      Nursing helped for me…. but at first you have to eat a lot of fatty foods to keep your milk up!! In fact, I was even more starving while nursing than while pregnant! Don’t think about dieting for a few months!!! But yes, eventually nursing was amazing. Burned like 500 calories a day. I nursed for so long – partly because I got thin!

    I’m in.
    I want to do it with you!
    I have to get off my sugar binges at Starbucks.
    Do I just email you?
