Think I'm exaggerating? Take a look at these photos:
Both of these photos were taken in August 2009. I weighed 138 pounds and was wearing a size 6.
This photo was taken in December 2010. Maia was about 3 weeks old. I weighed 204 pounds when Maia was born. I'm not sure how much I weighed here, but I'm guessing I was around 185 pounds. You can totally see it in my face and in my belly!! I still look really pregnant! (My dad had this picture as his desktop background! I saw it when we were visiting in July and I just about DIED! Needless to say, I changed the picture FAST!)
This picture was taken in mid-April. I'm wearing my maternity pants. Yup, that's right. Maia was 4 1/2 months old and I was still wearing maternity sizes. I was mortified to be seen around in stretchy jeans 4 months after Maia was born, so I went out and bought a normal pair of jeans that fit. Unfortunately, they were the epitome of "fat pants" and I didn't feel much better wearing them!
I have ZERO pictures of me wearing those jeans. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that I didn't exactly like the way I looked! I've taken as few pictures as possible this past year. It's really a shame, but can you blame me?
Now I fit back into my own "fat pants" - a size 12. I feel a lot better but I still don't have much else that fits. When I lost the weight in 2009 I donated almost all of my "fat" clothes. Now I'm left with a few things here and there that fit, but that doesn't mean I like the way I look wearing them. I can still picture how they looked before I got pregnant and that's how I want them to fit again.
So today is the beginning of the end for my "fat pants," once and for all.
I have everything I need for the next month and I'm so excited!! I love the products, so this doesn't feel like a diet. Normally, once I decide to commit to a diet, I'm filled with dread leading up to the start date.
This time, I'm ready.
Not only do I have delicious weight loss products, but I also have an incredible support group. I'll be blogging about my journey to lose 15 pounds during a holiday season that generally adds weight.
Here are my stats as of today:
Body Fat: 39.5%
