I Lost It!
I lost it! The baby weight, I lost it! Today, my scale finally showed me the number I last remember seeing before getting pregnant with Callie. I was starting to think it was stuck! For my weight loss, I'd like to thank the Academy, my supportive husband, the Couch to the 5K, myfitnesspal.com, Zumba for making me shake my ass off- literally, yoga, fruits, vegetables, egg white breakfast sandwiches, the b**** from the grocery store, Lily & Daisy for lots of long walks, and oh yeah, the big guy himself- God!! With Him, all things are possible.
A teeny part of me actually feels a bit sad. Not sure why. Maybe because it was the last physical reminder that she was here? But, mostly I feel proud :) I'm healthier now than I was before. I exercise regularly and eat better too (for the most part). I can thank Callie for these things. Every time I was about to give up, I would imagine all the things she went through in her short life. And then I would realize that I was being a total wuss, tell myself to suck it up and keep going.
So what now? I'm going to focus on keeping it up after I go back to work. I think that will be a big challenge for me because I tend to make a lot of excuses when I'm tired after working a full day. (Don't we all?)
Thanks for all of your encouragement and love along the way.
