Skinny Bitches

I've been debating on whether I want to make myself officially accountable. I have FIFTY pounds to lose, so I need to get off my ever lovin' ass. Period. I'm doin it. Here's a start.


Weight Watchers online fizzled out. I can't do it by myself. I get overwhelmed too quickly. I need to suck it up and try to get to an aerobics class stat. But I did go sign up for WW meetings. Let me show you what I'm dealing with here. Ugh (my hair looks horrid too):


And here's my lowest weight about 50 lbs ago when I visited my friend in San Diego three years ago right before I got pregnant with Q.

Yep, I weighed less at 29 than I did in high school! I think this shall be my motivation.
Thanks for listening to my "woe is me" post...but "woe is me" shall be no more! All I can do is keep trying, right???

I think it takes a full year to get back to where you started after having a baby. Give yourself a break!

I've got no excuses - I was much thinner when my kids were 2 and 4 -now I'm just lazy!

i feel the same. henri isn't even a week old, but i also have probably 50 lbs. i would like to lose total. that wouldn't even put me back at my lowest!

i am cutting myself a bit of slack and devoured a huge piece of chocolate cake after dinner.

it doesn't help when you have a hubby who spoils you!!

Girl - I think you look good - and Umm... you JUST had a baby! I hear you, though. I have some poundage I want to lose (the belly fat). It isn't coming off just thinking about it. :) And that picture of you at 29 - wowza! I can tell you didn't have kids, though... ;) Love ya!

I also want to say that your feet in pic#1 look like my 100 year old China doll's. They look cute and little in the black shoes...
And clarify the reason I can tell you didn't have kids... you obviously had a lot of time to get ready. You match. You don't have spit up on your blouse and you don't look tired... :)

Ha! I know! The only small thing on me is my feet. Those rounded toes do make me look a little "hippo from Fantasia"-ish. :)
