I am debating whether to resize my wedding rings. I was a 5, and wore them til I was a few months preggers. Now I am like a size 7 ring or bigger, but I am hesitant because I want to lose significant weight. What do you think? Now I am carrying a baby and have no ring, so people in my small town wonder what is going on. Also, random people I see when we are out look at my finger sometimes to see if we are married. Hello, judgmental! I AM married and am approaching my 3rd wedding anniversary, but still. People are looking at me like an unwed mother! Like there is something wrong with that! They looked at it A LOT more when I was pregnant, too. Noticeable staring at my hand, when my ring didn't fit and I was smart enough to take it off.

I haven't written about this, at least not to the extent that it has happened. I am just going to come out with it. I hit 169 today, haven't been this big since I was 6 months or more pregnant, I lost a few lbs. at first when I became pregnant and it took me a long time to gain the first ten pounds. I have been asked, I believe, 4 times in the past 6 weeks... if I am pregnant/when I am due. We were shopping at a grocery store and a person handing out samples stopped me and asked when I was due. I had a 9 month old in the shopping cart, so... NO, not pregnant! It could happen, sure, but how freaking pregnant do I look that people are asking in droves!? Next, my dentist asked when I was due. I said I had a baby and am still losing the baby weight, secretly want to find a new dentist, and never go to the grocery store again. This was in the same week or ten day span. Next, I go to work and a patient asked me if I was the pregnant one. Nope, again! Not me. This lady knows my baby's name, but she is elderly and a bit confused at times so I understand. However, she did notice I wore the scrub top I always wore when I was pregnant because nothing fits so I guess that's why she thought that.. plus, me gaining 25 pounds in the past 8 months. Yep. Now this is the kicker. I went to my sis-in-law's birthday party, we got there early, and her friends asked if I was pregnant again. I felt somewhat ok about my outfit. But not after that! I asked HIM when HE was due! Then I cried for a while in the car.
Sooooo...long story short, I feel terrible about myself these days. I mean, you don't ask someone unless you are DANG sure they are, and even then, wait til they tell you for gosh sakes! In truth, I LOOK pregnant. I had thyroid levels checked and they are normal because I went to my annual check up and the dr. said my neck did look thick. Well, thanks for that! I already know. My chins have chins. I am short and all this weight is fat, and it has to go somewhere! It is mostly in my stomach, neck, face, and arms. Hence, I look pregnant. My stomach protrudes a LOT. I have seen people 300 pounds that have flatter stomachs.
Therefore, I ordered a box of wraps as something to motivate me to change my lifestyle more. I tracked some exercise today that I am about to do now, and TODAY IS THE DAY. Day 1. Again. But not day 1. This is day whatever the amount of days it has been since I was 10 and felt fat until now, all the days in between when I weighed 120 at this height and thought I was fat. I am the same person, but I have evolved and appreciate the body I had then. I want it back! I want to be 155! I want to be 139 and not overweight! I will be happy there, I AM happy now, just not happy with the shape I have let myself fall into. I have eaten and drank my way here. I can eat and drink and exercise my way back.
- 12 glasses water/day
- 2 scoops greens each morning in water
- 20 minutes+ elliptical Mon-Fri
- Eat in calorie range 6/7 days
- Move more, sit less!
There it is.
OH MY GOSH. I just put my weight into Spark and I have finally seen this: "YOU:OBESE" when I am NOT pregnant. My BMI is 30 TODAY. I AM A THIRD FAT, more if I was calipered I am sure. THIS IS THE TIME FOR CHANGE.

Oh my goodness, it is only about six weeks until my little angel turns 1. I may just keel over now! Time has gone by so fast, I am happy and sad. Bella is progressing, this past week she is able to sit up on her own from the floor and she rolls around and scoots on her booty to get places. She turned 10 months old on June 25th.
I am planning her birthday. Today, I ordered her birthday outfit. Here it is: and the matching bib:
They will arrive in the next two weeks, so yay! There was a tutu outfit but 4/5 opinions preferred the dress. I like it a lot.
I am having her party at a park near my hubby's family and easy access for my relatives that live a bit farther away. We are going to grill hotdogs and hamburger and have picnic foods such as potato salad, macaroni salad, fruit, broccoli salad, maybe a veggie tray, and cake. The theme is Disney princess. I am making the invites up next week! So excited.
Big news also, we are looking at buying a house which I never thought would happen but a turn of events has made it possible. We looked them up online and then drove by to eliminate houses we didn't like that looked better in photos. I am beyond excited - it is a bug that bit me! I know it is a process, but it has started and it is exciting.

My hubby's boss's wife sells "ItWorks!" wraps and products. My sister in law just lost 14 lbs in a month and she is seriously smaller and her baby belly is GONE since last time I saw her. She is using the wraps and I think a few other products. I am blown away, because obviously I think any kind of wrap is a scam. However, results don't lie especially when she isn't selling them so it isn't like she is trying to sell ME some. So...I ordered some "Greens" which is powder that you mix with water and provides 8+ servings of fruits and veggies somehow. It is not a meal replacement, just a healthy part of a diet.
Anyway, I keep seeing on Facebook and elsewhere things like this:
It is compelling so maybe I will try one. They are expensive, 25 dollars for one wrap or four wraps for 70 or something.
