Operation: Fat Ass

Yes folks, it's time for me to stop being a big fat fatty! I know I'm not obese or anything, but to me I'm not thin and I hate it. When I met Rich I was 110lbs. My first prenatal appt (at 16 weeks) with Justyn, I was 117lbs. When I delivered his 9lbs 4oz fluffy butt, I was 165lbs. I thought I could eat whatever I wanted to eat, and when I gave birth the pounds would just come right off. Why should I think any different, that's exactly how it happened for my mom. She was always so thin. I come from a thin family so I had nothing to worry about, right? PFFFFT! Jokes on me I guess. I went from a size 3 to...well...the double digits! I have to be honest with you...I'm not lovin' it! I weigh the most I've ever weighed in my life not pregnant. So instead of feeling shitastic about it, getting depressed, and shoving a rice crispy treat down my throat...I'm going to do something about it. I'm nursing so there isn't a diet pill I can take. Really the only one I would take is Alli. So it's going to be au natural. Bummer! You'd think with 3 damn kids I'd never have time to gain weight! It doesn't help my boobs together weigh roughly the same as a preschooler! OK, maybe a little bit of an exaggeration there, but not much. These suckers are HUGE!

My main concern is the back fat (the other other white meat). I swear if I just look at a slice of pizza I get another roll back there. For some reason my legs and arms don't gain weight. So it pretty much has to distribute itself in my mid section. Yummo! I look like a potato on toothpicks. Sexy!

Anyway, for 30 days I'm going without. Without soda, fast food, & junk food. I'm going to drink water like a fish, and try to run everyday for atleast a mile. In this 30 days I will not step on a scale. Wish me lots of luck! I will try to blog about my efforts everyday. Anyone else wanna join me on this crazy quest?!

I'll join you on the no fast food or cokes for 30 days! I cannot guarantee that I wont have *A* sweet on the weekends though :)
I'm trying to get out and go to the park regularly again as well..it's just so darn cold!!
I never see pics of you, but from your avatar you do NOT look fat, thick, or any of that!

Hey sister, I'm with you! I'm in the same boat...I'm nursing as well and i seriously have to lose the weight. (I gained 40 pounds and I haven't dropped a single pound since i left the hospital.) My weight is ALL in my middle area. It's so depressing!

I hear you! You would think with 17 month old twin boys, it would just come off chasing them around. 10 pounds is all I ask for what I went through just to get pregnant and have them :) So I'm there with you!

tara said...

Yes! I want to join you! I, too, am bigger than I have ever been not pregnant. I wish we lived closer so I could have a workout buddy!!! Okay, so 30 days?? We can do it!!

GOOD LUCK! I cant wait to hear about your results! With Evan, I didnt gain a whole lot of weight..BUT I also didnt really eat right after I had him AND certainly didnt do too much working out! My thoughts were that I was going to be pregnant again pretty soon anyway! After this one I am SOOO gonna get my butt in gear!
