Weight Off My Shoulders

Well, I did it.

I stepped on the scale yesterday, cringing and not really wanting to look after such a great Thanksgiving holiday. Plus I haven't worked out for a week since I have been sick. So I was ready for a few extra LBs on the scale.

I purposely gave myself the time around Thanksgiving without standing on a scale. Who wants to know how much the extra pumpkin pie and mashed potatoes packed on while you are enjoying them??

But I needed to get back in the saddle yesterday. It was time to see the damage that was done, so I would know how far I needed to push myself at Baby Boot Camp when I returned.

So I took a deep breath and stepped on the scale with my eyes closed, sucking in my stomach (for some reason I think this helps). And I looked. I did it! I lost the rest of my baby weight. I am officially back to pre-pregnancy weight!

I want to thank so many people for this accomplishment. First - Lean Cuisines for producing such tasty, convenient, yet low calorie and low fat lunches. Second - Baby Boot Camp for making me get out of my pajamas in the morning. Third - My son for never giving me any time to really sit down and eat. Last, but not least - My husband for motivating me to lose the weight ("You know I love you just the way you are, but when are you going to look like you used to?").

It really is true. It took me nine months to put it on and it took me about nine months to take it off. We've come a long way, baby!!
