So I'm in the fight for my life...okay, the weight loss fight, that is. I'm trying my hardest to lose just five more pounds before Thanksgiving. Yeah, that's smart, I know. Thanksgiving is my goal though and I'm hoping to obtain it. We shall see. Because let's face it. Holidays you gain weight. It's just given. So maybe I can lose a little more before I put the obvious back on. (I'm sure knowing me, I will be eating as small of portions as I can...at first!) While I was pregnant, I put on a lovely 35 pounds. Gag me! Too bad I didn't have a 15 pound baby to say that's where the weight was. But hey, not bad though I guess. I've lost 28 pounds and I'm kinda just sitting still here. I have 5 more pounds to go until I'm at my prepregnancy weight. Honestly, even when I get there, I'll still feel like I have a long way to go. I have a permanent tire/doughnut it seems in my midsection. Also, since I am breastfeeding, I feel like I'm a mini clone of Dolly Parton and am trying to compete with her. I never thought I would miss my nonexistent boobs. Yeah, I said it. Seriously though, baby boobs aren't the same as non baby boobs. I don't need to elaborate. I'm sure you can figure it out! Plus, I'm in that still blah faze where I can't wear most of my old clothes because my boobs can't fit into ANYTHING, but I certainly can't wear maternity clothes. Very blah. If I could just strap these suckers down, trust me, I would! On a lighter note, I had to go shopping today and was finally successful. I know, such a thing to complain about :) So at least I got new clothes out of it. I've been trying to work out as much as I can to obtain my goal. I'm also starting to do weekly/bi-weekly measurements to see where I stand. Of course some parts of me fluctuate more than others!!
Change of subject...can you please click me and vote for my blog?!? The voting was reset so my blog is lost in blogasphere. You probably don't see the importance of this, but hey, it's my sometime hobby still when I'm not changing diapers!
