Weight, Wait, Weight

My husband and I don't own a scale, not that we don't want one, we just don't own one. I was at my mom's yesterday and weighed myself on hers for the first time in months. I almost cried when the number hadn't budged at all!!

Honestly, people ask us if we are going to have more children (it's a very popular question once you have one baby), and I feel a bit guilty saying that I don't want another one for awhile. My reasoning....I don't want to look like I do now, again.

It is totally unacceptable for me to be the current weight that I am for this long. I have been using my elliptical, working out, and eating significantly better since Christmas- there should have been a slight drop in weight, right?

Noah will be 1 years old on March 23rd and I told myself I would give myself a year and I don't see myself loosing 20 pounds in 2 months!!

My stomach looks like a road map with all the stretch marks pregnancy gave me. The skin on my stomach looks like a "Biggest Looser" contestant after they loose their weight. I feel so gross AND the jeans I am wearing are currently 6 sizes larger than the ones I was wearing when I found out I was pregnant- this is so depressing.

Don't worry my dear! I'm in the same boat...except I haven't had a baby! You're going to be just fine. I have been losing weight by using a free calorie counter website. It has been so incredibly helpful! I totally recommend it!

Good luck!

Keep your chin up! What worked for me was tracking calories in and out, I use fitnesspal. Good luck!
