speaking of bathing suits...

Oh, the joys of the post-baby body battle!
Official weigh-in this morning: 163.5. I had a goal to hit the 150s by Sept. 9. I don't think I will quite make it, but hopefully I will come close.
My pre-baby weight was 146.5, and I was pretty happy there, so that's what I'm trying to achieve. A strong, healthy body that I can maintain with normal healthy eating, treats when I want them, and regular enjoyable exercise.
This was me when I first found out I was pregnant with Jordan. I was healthy and happy.

These days, when I get down about what I look like, I try to remind myself of what I looked like just six months ago. This bathing suit photo was taken on Feb. 1, and I gave birth on my due date of Feb. 7. I weighed about 195 here. About the same as my husband!

So, anyway, this post is a reminder to myself that I've come a long way since February, and it will take hard work, but I will be able to get back to where I was before. I did it once, and I can do it again.
Go me!
