The Battle of the Bulge

Ok, so let's face it.  After almost 4 years of pregnancy, nursing, recovering and then doing it all over again, my body has not been what it once was.  For the period between babies, I tried dieting and working out, with little progress (10lbs lost total).  I worked out when pregnant with Jonathan to try to avoid any additional weight gain, but after bedrest and post-baby recovery, I lost my steam.  I fell off the horse.  I discovered Pioneer Woman and her amazing brownies.  And then I saw pictures....

I started un-tagging me from Facebook pictures that I was in for fear of people seeing what I had become.  I avoided seeing people because I just didn't want them to judge me.  The final straw was when I went to visit my former roommate and her family and left their house utterly embarrassed. 

That day I signed up for Weight Watchers and haven't looked back.  I'm now down 16lbs and am at my pre-Jonathan weight!  I'm making better food choices, working out, and finding that clothes that were once snug are far too big.  This is a great feeling and can't wait to continue to share the journey with you!
