With Ty reaching the 3 month milestone tomorrow, I am realizing that this baby weight is not coming off on its own, not even with nursing. I gained SO MUCH weight with him. And the sad thing is that I had such bad heartburn throughout the pregnancy that I rarely enjoyed eating. It's not like I was devouring my favorite comfort food all of the time. But the weight managed to pile on somehow (probably due to the convenience food we ate so often because I was too big and tired to cook).
So I started weight watchers last night. I have done it once before (online only) when Emily was about 6 months old, and I was struggling to lose the last 10 lbs. They came off so easily when I did just one month of weight watchers. But this time, I have much more than 10 lbs to lose, so I am doing the meetings since statistically speaking, I should lose more weight that way. I really want to get back to my cute old self asap! The meeting was really quick and fun because they gave us 2 simple recipes, and don't you know I love getting recipes!
I will now show you how huge I got because I had a picture taken of me the day before I went into labor. We had taken Emily to have her pictures made in the bluebonnets, and I ended up in a few of the shots. Keep in mind that I was ONLY 36 weeks, 3 days in these pictures!
And just to compare, this is me with my "basketball belly" at 39 weeks with Emily.
Soooooo as you can see, having a son did a number on my body, but I am hopefully on the right track to getting back to normal! Wish me luck!
