i have a confession to make. it makes me sad to think about it, but here goes. when i was pregnant with emma, i gained 50 pounds… yes, 50 POUNDS!!! that is a lot considering you are supposed to gain between 20 and 30. if you think about it, emma only weighed 8 lbs 1 oz when she was born. i know my placenta was not 42 pounds! i put on the weight of 2 toddlers! looking back on it, i think it was all the juice i drank. sure, i gave myself a free pass to eat more than usual (since i was eating for two.) but the juice… that was the error. i would buy huge 2 packs of orange, grape, and apple juice at costco. and they would be gone in no time. i figured it was all i could drink since i gave up all caffeine.
anyway, back to my confession. it has been really hard to get rid of the last bit of weight. so i joined weight watchers this january 2. 🙂 i started off the year with a plan. and i am happy to say that i am doing pretty good. as of wednesday (jan 30) i have lost 6 pounds! yay! its only been 4 weeks, and i decided i will do it for 10 so i have a while to go.
here is a picture of me right before emma was born. ouch, right?
