Got My Fix

I have seriously been making up for my months without sweets. In the past 3 weeks I have eaten more oreo's, ice cream, cake, cookies, and brownies than most people eat in a year. I think I am done. Of course that doesn't mean I will never have it again, but I really need to get some self-control on this. I think I am going to gain more now then I did during the pregnancy if I don't stop now! Luckily, thanks to breastfeeding, I am starving ALL the time and must be burning some calories.

I have lost 16 pounds so far, about half of what I gained so I think I am doing pretty well. I can also wear my pants that I wore pre-pregnancy, although they don't look quite as well as they did, i'm still excited. It took me months to even lose 10lbs after having Rowan, something I still don't understand since he weighed 8lbs7oz, but whatever.

I think that I need to start back on my gestational diabetic diet (w/o ALL the strict restrictions), since I usually enjoyed how I ate. We are getting some yummy stuff from the garden now so that should help. I don't know if I am quite ready to try weight watchers, but maybe I will- soon. I guess there's always excercise- haha!!

I thought you looked super fab when I saw you last week!

And Eli is only a few weeks old - you can milk that for a little while longer. My youngest, on the other hand, is one. I think I need to stop using the baby weight excuse. :)

16 lbs gone already! That's awesome. Just ease off the oreos and you'll be fine. Keeping up with 2 gives you lots of exercise, so as long as you don't fuel up with oreos like I did, you should be back to your pre-baby self in a few months. :)

Oh, and I love the name Eli. So sweet. And such a cutie.
