The Body is BACK (mostly)!

Feb. 2nd, 2009

Jan. 5th, 2010

It took almost a year, but yesterday morning I stepped on the bathroom scale and low and behold! I’m at my pre-pregnancy weight! My body’s not *quite* the same…I’m a little curvier than before I got pregnant so I don’t fill into all my old pants (and alright…I *might* be sucking in the c-section belly a bit in the first shot!) but it feels great to be back where I was weight-wise. My first #mamafit goal is complete! 🙂

Mother of All Mothers’ Day Giveaways

I don’t know how many of you have become acquainted with the blog The Meanest Mom on the Block, but not only is her blog really funny, she also hosts the BEST giveaways. From now until April 24th at 11:59 PM EST, you can enter to win one of 11 fabulous prizes, all designed to make you feel like a Hot Mamma this Mothers’ Day.

My reason for wanting to win (AKA, my pitiful plea to the computer program that will randomly select 11 winners to select moi)?

I’ve been trying really hard to lose the baby weight. Any of you who have kids know that this isn’t the easiest thing (or most of you, anyway). I thought I was doing pretty well. Of course, then my doctor had me change up my meds to see if I’m still swelling and I gained back 1/3 of what I’d lost in the past 6 weeks. 😦 But still, I was thinking I looked pretty good and, at least until the med change, was almost back into my pre-pregnancy pants.

Then yesterday after church, waiting waiting for a meeting with the president of the women’s organization, her 1st counselor, and Mark, when Hat Lady walks over. “Can I ask you a personal question?” she asks.

“Uh, sure” I reply (b/c really, how do you say “no” without knowing the question?)

“Well, I noticed you’re a bigger girl and I have this dress I don’t wear anymore and I thought you’d like it.”

At first, I thought she meant “bigger” as in my chest size, b/c I’m breastfeeding and all that. But then she continued and it was painfully obvious that is NOT what she meant.

“I used to be big like you, but then I lost all this weight and I was going to give it to GoodWill but since you look like you’re my old size I thought you’d like it. It’s black, and it’s the dress I bought when I was a new widow and wanted to go to Single Adult activities.”

Ouch. 😦 So, as you can see oh-great-random-number-generator, I need to win. Especially that Shabby Apple Dress. KThanx.

Good luck, everyone!
