Baby Blues

I am happy to report that my baby is now 11 weeks old and she is doing wonderfully. She sleeps tell 6:15 every morning then goes right back to bed until like 8:00. She smiles at me and just has the most precious expressions. Ooh I could suck her face off, that is how cute she is to me. My blues don't come because of my precious baby. They come because I can't seem to get off these last few pound of baby weight. I gained an obscene amount of weight while pregnant with Brynlee, (lets just say I wasn't in the 100's anymore) pretty terrible really. But I have a motto and it is... "there is no other time in my life that being fat is ok, so I eat whatever I want when I'm pregnant cause I am hungry." So my dilemma now is, loosing the rest of my weight, I already lost like 45 pounds since she was born and that is good but I need to loose more. So if you have any advice on how to get past my bodies natural happy place please let me know.
-This is a before picture not even to my highest weight, This is a now picture, my boobs are so big they account for at least 5 pounds each.

jenny don't you know "big is beautiful" men want some thing they could hold on to.

Unfortunetly for Benny boy that is not the case. You are NOT big, you are a skinny hot mamma and you don't need to worry.

(I'm not sure if any of that made sense. It did is my head...it's late here)

Don't worry about it, Jenny -- it'll come off. It's only been 11 WEEKS!!! Be patient with yourself. It took you 9 months to get it all on, and it'll take more than 11 weeks to get it off.

Here are a few things that have been sort of working for me... Exercise when you feel up to it, and eat healthy foods, especially for snacks. If you are craving something sweet, have fruit. If you are craving something salty, go easy on the chips or whatever. There are healthier versions of most snack foods, or snack on celery sticks or carrot sticks with some peanut butter. Drink lots of water. Sleep. Have a positive outlook.

I'm here for you! I love you tons and am trying to get my own baby weight off the rest of the way too, and my baby's 6 weeks older than yours!!! But seriously don't worry about it too much -- you're beautiful no matter what, Ben loves you no matter what, your kids love you no matter what, and that's all that matters.

Well its time to get going? You need to get out of bed at 6 am instead of going back to sleep and go running! Then instead of eating lunch go running! Eat an apple for dinner then go running! It comes natural' He he he Ha ha ha just kidding you are beautiful no matter what you do...however I am excited for you to come work out with me at my cool gym!
