The battle of the bulge continues

(Today's post has nothing to do with infertility, and pregnancy and children are briefly mentioned.)

Why is it that, as soon as I decide to start a diet, I find myself extra hungry that day?  *sigh*

Remember how I mentioned that I'd lost 16 lbs while pregnant?  (I talked about it in this post.)  Yeah, well, 15 of them are back.  Hrmph.  Guess that's what a return to my usual eating habits coupled with no exercise will do. . . .

So I am once again on the weight loss wagon.  And when our nanny starts (two weeks from today!), I will be going to the gym four mornings a week.

I can't even begin to count the number of times I have undertaken the challenge of losing weight and getting fit.  I've gotta get fit for my sons now, though, if not for myself.  I want to be around to see them grow up!  I'll be 59 before they graduate high school, and I know that, with my family history of heart disease and diabetes, it's not impossible I could be dead (or at least infirm) by that age if I don't take charge of my health.

Here we go. . . .

  1. S,

    Best of luck on your journey. You seem like such a strong and motivated person, I think you will be really successful. I'm pulling for you.

  2. Can you find something you really like that you can eat a lot of on a diet? I just bought 12pounds (I know, I am insane, but it was a really great sale) of blueberries today. I can freeze them and will eat them by the bowl. Also, I have recently discovered the most amazing banana shake where you freeze bananas then blend them with a handful of ice and a half cup of milk. It tastes like ice cream. Maybe you know about this, but I have been grabbing random people on the street because I am so excited by this. Good luck working out!

  3. I'm struggling again too. Breastfeeding has not done me any favors in the weight department. I lost 15lbs postpartum and have remained the same weight since three weeks after Leah was born... Thank goodness for summer - it's time to put on my walking shoes!

    Good luck to you!

  5. Girl, I hear ya. I'm already dreading the future weight loss I'll have to deal with! I might just go back on Weight Watchers when the time comes so I have more structure. Good luck to you!
