Slowly But Surely.... I think*

Oh my goodness... my weight. Its been such an issue ever since the pregnancy. Its been up and down and up and up. I know a lot of the medications I've gone on/off and of course the pill have contributed to the fluctuations but I think I've finally got a hold of it. I have been dieting like a maniac for the past 3 weeks and I've lost 6 solid pounds- like not water weight but POUNDAGE :) THANK YOU LORD!!!!!! I have so much more energy and I feel wayyyy better about myself- even though its only 6 measly little pounds, its encouraging to see the numbers go down on the scale each day. My goal is to get back around 115 or so. But I'd be thrilled with 118- not gonna lie :) SO I've got a little bit more to go... but I'm getting there... hopefully! I've cut out ALL sweets and ALL alcohol. I've also started having just yogurt for breakfast and either a salad or pita chips and hummus for lunch. Its really been going great and I think I might throw a party when the numbers go under 120. Anyways, just wanted to update you on my constant struggle which never, EVER used to be a struggle until miss Maevey baby was born :) Thankfully shes really cute and sweet and the love of my life so shes worth every extra pound, stretch mark and other unmentionables that have now become a part of my life...
