In exactly one month I’ll be joining my son in celebration of his second birthday! Wooowhoo! I’m so excited. My lil man-man is getting longer, stronger, and smarter everyday. It’s amazing how much of a metamorphosis children undergo during the early years. What’s even more amazing is the lack of metamorphosis on behalf of my body!
Shortly after giving birth (click here for the short version of the world’s fastest 4 and 1/2 hour birth from a first-time mom) I thought there was no way in the world I’d NOT lose the baby weight. I mean after all I was extremely active during my pregnancy, ate a (somewhat) vegetarian diet, exercised everyday, and I even stayed at home with my son for the first 15 months of his life — in other words “So why the hell am I still… NOT thin?!”
Well let me show you why….!
Hmmmmmm. What is that, my friends?
IDK. Something I shouldn’t be drinking. What’s so ironic is I AM NOT A DRINKER!
I absolutely hate alcohol. The taste. The feeling of not being ‘myself’. The empty calories.
Seriously.. if I’m going to ingest 300 calories of pure sugar it better be from a donut.
Speaking of donuts… What’s THIS?
Ohhhh nothing. Just a clan of yummy chocolate glazed miniature donuts. And yes. I ate the whole mini donut tribe. And it was great.
So as you see I have a PROBLEM >>>> I eat ALL the wrong things.
And here’s another piece of irony —- I USED TO BE VEGAN!
Well I can’t take it anymore. My 5 foot 10 Torrid-model-frame was never, by any means, thin or even skinny. But before getting knocked up I was definitely rockin’ my size 12 curves!!
And that’s where I need to get back to. ESPECIALLY before my 30th birthday in …. less than 5 months!
I can do it. I know I can. I’ve done it before. More than anything, I just needed to admit this to myself.
Any of you experienced an amazing weight loss journey you’d like to share??! Plz do! Comment below =D
