But having this baby is kicking my buns right now.
I'm sure it's mostly a lack of sleep and messed up hormones.......
I was thinking about it last night - I had Leandra in February 2010 and got pregnant again 5 months later (July). I had a miscarriage 3 months after that (October) and 2 months later (December) I was pregnant again.
My body is completely depleted.
My hair and skin even show it - I just feel limp and dead.
I was blessed with great genetics - and I'm being serious.
I have the same body composition as my dad.
I have a body that is strong and very healthy.
I have a body that has been able to carry and deliver 9 healthy children.
I have a body that can work hard.
But, I also struggle with my weight like my dad.
My husband eats far more than I do and doesn't exercise any more than I do - but because of his genetics he weighs the same as he did in high school. Exactly the same.
I was very thin in high school and college, but as soon as I started having babies the yo-yo started.
Lose all the baby weight, then get pregnant and gain 50 pounds.
Then work my tail off to lose it again.
After I had Mariah (baby #6) I got back down to 130 pounds - wearing size 6.
I was running every day and eating very healthy.
But then I got pregnant with Elli.
Elli was my hardest pregnancy, hardest baby, hardest toddler......and I never lost all the baby weight.
So here we are today after a long haul.
Desperately needing to lose this baby weight.
I'm only saying all of this because......
I'M READY TO RECLAIM MY BODY!!!
I don't need sympathy. I need encouragement!
I know how to lose weight, but it's a lot of HARD work and I think I'm ready!!
it's date night
a great talk with Corina last night
