Losing the weight

Now that I am 9 weeks post pardum it is officially time to get the baby weight off. With this pregnancy I gained WAY more weight than I wanted to. Between a semi-rocky pregnancy, my Dad's diagnosis and treatment, the girls having a rough school year and everything else life threw my way... I ate. Too much! I ended my pregnancy almost 40 pounds from where I wanted to be.

So here I am, sitting 30 pounds heavier than where I want to be to even feel somewhat comfortable. After I had the girls I shed the weight a lot easier and a lot faster. I guess that is the difference between being in my 20's and being in my 30's. :D

So now I am resigned to cut carbs and sugar. I am insulin resistant so carbs and sugar are not my friends. I am making an attempt to walk but between the weather being in the high 90's non stop and having three kids, exercise is hard to come by. But I am trying. These are the times I wish I could go back in time and slap the donut out of my pregnant self's hand and replace it with an apple. I guess hind sight truly is 20/20.

So here's to weight loss!

Be gentle on yourself! The weight will come off, in due time. Remember that the girls will be back to school soon enough and you and Jack-Jack can gets lots of walks/exercising in while spending some one on one time together!

Take your time! Too much too soon and you'll burn out. I understand your desire to get the ball rolling though. It's a frustrating "state" to be in. Your body has done amazing things so appreciate it and give it the time it needs :-)

ermsthaseriously, take your time...but very funny imagery! I often times wish I could go back to my pre-child self and tell myself to wear a bikini more...cause they time will come for that to end

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
