TWO BABIES = so much love! ... AND 25 pounds to knock back off. :)
Friday, August 24, 2018
Boy, do I even know anybody on here anymore?! It's been AGES. My life is so different than it was just a couple of years ago, I can hardly even believe it.
So, lovely friends, I have TWO babies now! Well, I suppose technically I have two toddlers, since the baby just turned 1. That makes my son 3.5. Where the heck does the time go?!
(No, I don't know why we keep making that face. LOL)
These kiddos are amazing. I love them to pieces, but I can't believe what two pregnancies has done to all the hard work I did a few years back. With both I somehow managed only completely acceptable 25-30 lb weight gains and lost nearly all of it by about 3 weeks postpartum. But I have gotten sloppy with sugar and portion sizes in my permanent state of exhaustion, So here I am 25 pounds overweight again! And nothing will ever be in its right place again!
Some I don't give a hoot because I GREW two human beings, dang it!
Other days I'm really bummed and disappointed in myself -- like today, when these particular clothes I am wearing are frumpy and show ALL the flab and I'm hiding under a sweater.
I know how to do this. I've lost 70 pounds before! But I also had waaaaaaaaaay more free time and flexibility then.
So I guess I need to get back to the days where I just own it and somehow find the Herculean strength to at least eat less and take some freakin' stairs. Because crying doesn't burn any calories and excuses won't get me anywhere!
How the heck do you other Supermoms do it?!?! I'll take any and all tips with the utmost gratitude!
Hope all my old buddies are doing their best ever!
