and joined Weight Watchers. I know it’s only been 7 weeks since the baby was born. But I just can not stand this extra weight on my body. You see, I was always the skinny one in school. Heck, I got down to 96 pounds when I ran track! I didn’t gain as much with Wesley as I did with Ellie, thank goodness, but I have only lost about 20 pounds of it so far. Ideally I would like to be 120 again, but my goal is 130. Plus I feel so much better when my weight is down. I’m tired enough as it is without 25 extra pounds slowing me down!
I’ve only been on it 3 days. So far it’s been kind of hard. I’m used to eating what I want, when I want it, from being pregnant. Obviously that is how I gained the 44 pounds! I did much better today. I even went for a walk! Walked a whole mile, pushing the baby, who loved it by the way. He is going to be an outdoorsy boy for sure! In fact I brought him home and he took one of his longest naps yet; 4 1/2 hours!! Now if he’d only do that at night!
Managed to read a little more of The Glass Books for the Dream Eaters during the nap. It is such a delightfully strange book. Really liking it so far. Need to finish though so I can get back to Kristin Lavransdatter. Danielle started after me and finished before! I’m so proud of her! Am also back to working on Estella’s Revenge – look for an exciting announcement in this coming issue! I’m really excited about it!
