I reluctantly stepped onto the scale this morning. I debated with myself about waiting until I was more fully recovered, but that seemed a lot like the, "I'll start my diet on Monday" mentality. If I have to lie around all day I should at least be thinking about what is going into my mouth. Right??
So here is the official damage. 9 months of pregnancy, taking the eating for two to the limit. I weighed in at 267.8. There it is in black and white. It looks just as bad as it did on the scale. I will round it to 268 to make things simpler.
So I am off and running. Okay, maybe walking gingerly, but I am moving forward. I have a rough road ahead of me.....
1. The holiday season
2. recovering from surgery
3. nursing a 3 month old
BUT, I have made the decision. It starts here and now. Here we go!
