Oh so worth it!!

This is my little Emily. She arrived the beginning of September. She is amazing and we all love her to pieces. But..... the toll to my body was a heavy one. The sad news is that I gained back EVERYTHING that I had lost before. That's right. 70 pounds.It was a tough pregnancy. I had to take it easy for the first few months, had low iron that made me even more tired than normal, and battled depression. Could I have gone through the pregnancy without gaining it all back? Yes. Did I? No.

So we are back to square one. My baby is two months old now, so it's time to get back at it. I went to the gym last night, and I will let you know how that went, but right now I need to go care for my little one. Just wanted ya all to know I'm back at it!


  1. She's darling! And you're fine. I put on 6 with one of mine. And 40 with the one after him (because I never took off 20 of the 60 with the first and ended up topping out at the same... arrrgh!!!)

    Totally worth it :)

  2. Congrats on the babe! She's beautiful :)
    And I wish you the best with getting off the pounds. Since you've gone through labor, you can do anything!

  3. She is so beautiful. I agree, if you've gone thru labor, you certainly will get the weight off. And hopefully get some sleep also :) Gracie

  4. Beautiful Girl!!

    Good Luck with the gym....I just joined one myself!
