I always knew I would be "that" mom....

what do you do when you have hardly left the house in weeks and it is only 2 degrees outside?
wellll...you stay inside, dress your baby up in the cutest little outfit you can think of....

and take pictures of her for like 2 hours because she is just so darn cute!

the truth comes out

okay so remember that picture (a few posts below) that i posted of me 37 weeks pregnant? okay....i have to confess, that was like the most unbelievably flattering picture of my belly that ever could have been taken. it was def taken at 37 weeks just as i claimed BUT a lot changed from that point forward and i purposely did not post the picture evidence ........until today. now that i am "unpregnant" it is a little funny to look back and see what a freaking dump truck i turned into in the last 2 weeks of pregnancy. And i swear this was all against my will- i was not sitting locked in my basement mowing cheeseburgers....even though it looks like that was ALL i did.
holy shit - right?
guess what my new years resolution is????? .....fml.

The good news is that i am already down 30 pounds - 24 days postpartum.....but just to be brutally honest, i still have at least another 15 left to go....
and that will only get me into a one piece this summer. A bikini would require approximately 15k in plastic surgery. Again fml.

all of this extra jiggly "hell" is way more than i have ever had to deal with.... and i can just tell that getting back to normal is going to be hard......ummm actually it will probably be really really hard. it freaks me out.

good thing i got an elliptical for Christmas :)
Here's to hoping that 2011 is a happy, healthy, inspired and productive year for everybody :)
lord knows i need a year like that this time around!!
