...ever ever give up!!
On getting in shape, that is.
Yesterday, I realized that Brian is 9 months old (quickly closing in on 1 year) and I am still way over my pre-pregnancy weight.
*Whenever stating something like that I feel that I need to clarify 2 things.
1. Yes, I have tried to do something about this. Before my knee surgery 3 weeks ago, I walked at least 2 miles every weekday. I felt this was pretty darn-tootin good with a creaky knee.
2. No, this is not a vanity I-must-have-a-flat-stomach-and-be-super-sexy thing. I have never in my life had a flat stomach. I just want to be back off of my medications! (Some of my health problems are very weight dependent)
Therefore, I feel that it's time to get to work on eating right.
I am here to put it in writing. As scary as it is to do.
I want to lose 10 pounds by the time Brian is 1 year old.
There, I've done it. I've announced it to the world. All 5 of you that read this!
Now I just have to DO it. I'm pretty confident since the other times I have made a blog goal, they have turned out pretty well.
So wish me luck, or send me some magic weight loss fairy dust, or good thoughts, or karma, or prayers, or whatever it is you do. Because I'll very likely need them!
And, I will of course, keep you updated here!
Now, let me just go find a scale to see where I'm starting from! (I may have to wait until I'm at work tomorrow where there is a scale.)
Days left to lose 10 pounds: 88!

Little man is 9 months!
Since he has become mobile life has definitely changed! He is not only crawling but furniture surfing also. He can stand for a few seconds on his own.
He is still eating baby foods and cereals and formula- we still haven't mastered the whole chewing thing yet.
And now some pictures!
