Something else that is a big part of my life - and I shudder to think HOW big it is - is dropping the weight I have packed on since the baby was placed with us. What is funny is, I joked with my friends that this was the BEST way to have a baby - no fat belly, no post-preg weight to lose! Well, isn't that a crock?! Apparently a crock of cheese, chocolate, ice cream and french fries. And a 20th Class Reunion to boot! CRAP! September 19th is my reunion and I refuse to be the "awww, she used to be so cute. Wasn't she a cheerleader? Guess motherhood got to her!" alumni! I wanna be my high school weight! LOL! That's just a SNOT LOAD of weight to loose in 3 months! Oh well, there's something to be said about lifting the bar.
Yesterday I joined the YMCA! I have walked/ran 8 miles since signing my name on the dotted line and watched what I have been eating. Did you know Rice Krispie Treats are only 90 calories? GENIOUS!
I have done this weight loss thing since I was 12. I have been Bulemic. I have been skinny. During my 2nd pregnancy, my waist measured a WHOPPING 50"!! I have done Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, South Beach, Atkins as well as the eat-everything-you-want-to-and-pretend-you-are-skinny diet.
I am convince having kids makes you fat. Not the pregnancy and birthing part, even thought that's a big culprit, but the "We can't waste this - I will just gobble down 42 cold chicken nuggets while loading the dishwasher."
Let's face it, as mom's we eat STRANGE things! Things we would never order in a restaurant!
I've done this rant before...click here!
Cold tomato soup
Soggy grilled cheese
Gold-fish crackers from the back-back seat of your van
So......anyone wanna join me on a quest to be ONE HOT MAMA?! There is power in numbers my friends! How much weight do you think we could lose together? Hundreds?
