Wednesday Weigh In: Week One

Let me start by saying I am going completely out of my comfort zone here...

Weight has always been something I have struggled with. So talking about my weight in such an open way is kinda of intimidating. (I'm not an easily intimated person.) With that said I am way out of my element here.
 I am hoping that this will be just another way to help me stay motivated and maybe for me to be able to motivate someone else!

As I have mentioned I had my amazing son just a little over 6 Months ago. Yes, I gained weight while I was pregnant and  in different area's then I had weight before. Not to mention that my son was two weeks early and weighed 8.6 pounds and was 21 1/2 inches long. I will however admit that before I got pregnant I weighed the most that I ever have.

I am happily married and we love to eat and eat out. I really didn't see myself gaining all of these extra pounds. Guess I had my sunglasses a lot because I had gained almost 50 pounds in 4 years.
I have an awesome husband who seemed to like me chunky more than  he likes me thinner!
His words not mine..." More Cushion for the pushin!"

While pregnant I felt the prettiest I had felt for a long time! Guess what they say about the pregnant glow made me feel great. On top of having the greatest gift of all time in my tummy.

The week my son was born. 38 weeks Pregnant

Sorry for the Toliet Pictures. 37 weeks Pregnant

However after I had my son was another story. I had all this extra skin where my tummy was stretched to its max and I just felt awful about myself. I unfortunately was not one of those pregnant momma's where my skin and tummy just went back to normal like it was before.

I have lost all of my baby weight. Or weight I gained while I was pregnant. I was back to the weight I was
when I found out I was pregnant, when I decided to really do something about my weight. (Plus some extra loose skin I acquired!)  

I started my diet three weeks ago today and I had taken some pictures then. I deleted them though, because I thought I looked fat. =)

So the picture you are going to see are from this morning and a couple I took last week in some jeans that were tight on me when I started.

  1. You must tell me how you lost the weight. I'm so nervous about losing the baby weight that I haven't even begin to gain yet.

    1. If you read my post "I don't skinny dip, I chunky dunk!" it is all in there on what I am doing!!!

  2. I read your whole blog backwards so I got there! lol

    No way I could do all that but good luck! You seem to be pulling it off!

  3. Thanks I am trying! It's hard at times but just trying to keep the "smaller" picture in mind. = )

  4. You're doing so great sister! Keep it up and you'll be to your goal in no time!

    Love you lots!
