baby Wait or baby Weight?

I waited 9 months for the baby now how long do I have to wait for the baby weight to go?
Unfortunately for me, you never know – but it’s very important this time around that I lose this baby weight in a timely manner. The gestational diabetes dictates that I stay at a healthy weight for my size so I’ve got some work to do. No problem, really. I joined Weight Watchers.
A few years ago this would have been hard for me to write about, but you know what? This is my skin, and I like it. I’m not ashamed of myself, although my bust size really, really bothers me … but that will go down in time, too. I am feeding another human being, so I can be realistic about that.
I really don’t have an issue telling you all my weight and where I want/need to be but the problem there is – then it becomes about the numbers and it’s not about the numbers. If I only get half way to where the charts say I should be and I’m healthy and happy then I don’t personally see any reason to try to look like a teenager. I am who I am. I weigh in every Monday and I’ll probably do a small post about it to keep me on track – and have accountability. So far on Weight Watchers I’ve lost 4 pounds.
Who else out there needs some cheer leading in this department? Let’s do this together! Being healthy is never shameful – no matter your size or the number on your jeans. If you feel good, then you look good – period. I will totally be on your band wagon if you let me know you’re in this fight, too. There’s absolutely no way I’m going to willingly be at risk for Type-2 Diabetes. That is not an option for me.
Lets take our personal health by the horns and get it right, who’s with me?

  1. I’m totally with you, as you already know, I just finished seeing Jill Tanis and it has changed my world! I’m still trying to feel as comfortable in my skin as you do, but here’s to hoping that I get there some day! That’s really what I want, I couldn’t care less what size cloths I have to buy, I just want to be healthy, feel healthy and be comfortable in the skin that God gave me. I’ll send you those recipes I was telling you about right now!
