Skinny jeans and the not so skinny...

Ok, so this will be quick.  I'm just going to vent for a sec.  Mom, if you're reading you can stop because I already called you about this today.  Lindsey, you too!  Anyway, so Fall is in the air and I was so excited this morning to get my boots on.  However, I realized that the only way to show off my fabulous boots is to wear....wait for it....SKINNY JEANS.  Oh no, this is clearly a problem seeing as how I just had a baby. Well, I thought, I've lost 20 of the 40 so maybe, just maybe they will fit.  I dug through all of my boxes and pulled them out.  Haha!!  I pulled them over my feet and that's about as far as I got.  They wouldn't go over my ankles basically.  In case you're wondering...20 pounds is a lot of weight.  Enough to make you go up a few sizes!  So, ok, I pulled back on the ol maternity jeans.  I walk 2 steps and they're falling off.  I hate those things.  Then I had to find a shirt.  I pulled out this cute maternity shirt that I bought.  It is tight fitting and with the little baby bump, it was really cute.  Well, it just isn't quite as cute anymore.  A pooch is only cute if there is a baby inside! I don't want to buy any clothes because HOPEFULLY I will be back in my clothes soon.  So, what did I do??  Yes, that's right...I went and got myself a trainer.  Haha!!  I only bought the sessions.  It is up to me to schedule them.  I'm waiting until I go back to the dr before I get started.  WISH ME LUCK!!!  Oh...dinner tonight, pasta with a cream sauce and a couple glasses of wine.  Is that how you lose weight??  Just wondering!!


  1. Ha sounds like me. I spend all my time breastfeeding so there's little time for exercise. I only gained 30 lbs but only lost 15 when he was born. My weight hasn't changed at all in 4 months. Let me know how it goes, I have to eat my carbs to have energy, otherwise I'd do atkins like my hubby.

  2. Don't ya just loathe those Mommy's that drop the weight in the snap of a finger. I lost all of my weight within 6 months but still can't fit into my old clothes (17 months later)...everything just shifts in funky places...not to discourage you anymore than you already are. Okay, I'll shut up now because I know I'm not helping! Good luck with the trainer, I'm sure you'll do great!
