There is this great saying, “Nine months to gain, nine months to lose!” When I was pregnant and shortly after Grace was born, I thought was the best saying ever. It was so freeing. I felt like it relieved me of that pressure to get my pre-pregnancy body back right away. I loved it.
Now Grace is 9 months old. I hate that saying.
I’m not sure of my current weight because my scale isn’t accurate, but I know I don’t really have much more weight to lose. Still, my body isn’t the same as it once was! I didn’t expect that it would be, but as Grace is getting older it is a little harder to hold onto that excuse that I “just” had a baby.
The real question though is what I am doing about it. The answer to that is: NOTHING! I eat something sweet every day. Every SINGLE day. Often more than once a day. Plus I’m not very active. I never exercise on purpose. I guess I better get my butt in gear if I want to see some changes, right?
Praise the Lord that I don’t look like this anymore! This was taken 6 days before Grace was born.
Update: Yesterday I bought a pair of shorts in my regular pre-pregnancy size! WHOO-HOO!
