Monthly Weigh In! I'm LAME!!!
I haven't weighed in with all of you for weeks! I have been too ashamed. I type this as my belly is full of a half a box of girl scout cookies! lol. I was at my parent's house tonight and they had 10 boxes! I couldn't resist! I was good with my diet again for about a week. I was eating all fruits, veggies, grains etc. I was following my Weight Watchers plan.... then a terrible thing happened... my dishwasher broke! I am way too lazy to wash dishes by hand and so is my husband. So, we have been opting to eat out more! I know, we are terrible!
The bonus of all of this is that I haven't gained weight. I haven't lost weight either - but at least I am maintaining. I am still going for regular stroller walks as well, but it is getting colder and I have a feeling that won't last much longer. At this time last year, my yard was covered in a foot of snow. So, I am not expecting to be able to exercise in the outdoors for much longer!
So here is my reality check. I have 3.5 months to lose 15 pounds in order to get to my prepregnancy weight before baby M's first birthday. Here is the dilemma, I am trying to decide if I even care anymore. I am happy at this weight. I am confident. I have lost 55 pounds, everyone comments on how much weight I have lost. I look in the mirror, and I see ME (not the version of me that was 50+ pounds ago). I want to stay in shape (or get in shape lol) and maintain.... but do I really need to lose more weight? Is it ok to be 15 pounds heavier after having a baby and be ok with it? Am I giving up? Should I post an "after" picture and let you see? Or, should I wait until I hit my goal? I NEED ADVICE!
