Let's Be Realistic, Shall We?

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!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning.....I'm happy to return the favor.

I am loving this post because, hello?!.....four kids over here so I can relate. I have STILL not lost the baby weight from my last and he's THREE for the love of ned! Oh well.

As for the boob issue.....just wait until those suckers go back to "normal" and you'll be wishing you had those nursing boobs back. Wait...never mind. Those nursing boobs are not a treasure to look at.....but neither are post nursing boobs. Sorry to say, your probably screwed either way. :)

Your baby boys is to die for.

You'll get there! And honestly, you did great gaining just 35 lbs, I've heard some other stories where it's closer to 50 - 60 lbs. Good for you for sticking to it and getting back to your size. And honestly, those extra 5 lbs are probably your nursing boobies! :)

I'm constantly trying to lose..I do good then all of a sudden I just gain. Whatever. Yesterday I found some X-Small shirts at Van Heusen that seem to run big so at least I feel small. :)

Gorgeous feller you have there!~!!!

Annie said...

You are so close!! The last few pounds are the hardest. I felt the same way you did....but you will lose it all!! I am actually below what I was before I had the baby...not as much time for snacking now (and drinks...I am sure that has a lot to do with it)...:)
Hang in there...you will make your Thanksgiving deadline!!

Ashley said...

You've done really well so far! Can I just ask when you have the time to work out?? I'm back to work and when I'm home in the evenings, all Aeson wants to do is nurse, so I never have the time. :(
