Oh! So that's why....


I haven't lost the baby weight yet. Last night Dan had some reception at work and brought home cupcakes from this place. They catered the event-let me tell you, they were the BEST cupcakes I have ever eaten-EVER! (And I've eaten my share of cupcakes in my lifetime...) I'm kind of a cupcake snob and don't usually partake in storebought versions. Of course, I couldn't resist even though my neighbor had shared some gingerbread-stout cake earlier...so I wonder why the scale doesn't budge? Could it be because I'm stuffing my face with sweets?....um....yeah. I guess in my head I validated it because "if it came from Whole Foods, it MUST be good for me", right? It is definitely true that FALL does make you fat. Too many good foods to resist. So, next time you're at Whole Foods, please do not stop until you get to those cupcakes...I promise you won't regret it. By the way, the picture above is taken from a Whole Foods somewhere. If you look carefully, you will see the ginormous cupcakes....

I had to come to the sad, sad realization that once you make it to your pre-pregnancy weight and then re-gain weight...you can no longer blame it on the baby.

However, I've still pissed at A about the these stretch marks!

I also am feeling the bulge. Wish I had a whole foods close!

I don't weigh that much different, but these flabby stomach and love handles are killing me! Almost wishing the low-rise jeans would rise a little higher to help hold it in.

3 1/2 years later I still have not lost all the baby weight, although I don't think I can justify it as baby weight anymore! Even if I did lose it all and more, I am convinced my body will never be the same again!!!

I too have 3 kids and pre-baby wore a size 6. A year and a half ago I had had enough and joined weight watchers and lost 40 lbs in 6 months. Best money ever spend and best thing I ever did. Now down from a size 16 back to a six. I highly recommend it.
