So I am off to go have a yummy dinner! I will still post about weight lose...just need to go a bit slower with it than I would like...

My motivation comes in the form of a wedding. I don't currently own anything that I can fit into to wear to this wedding. I really don't want to buy something specific for this event that I could potentially only wear once (due to weight lose). SOOOO I am hoping I can lose enough pounds to fit into a few options I have... I am not sure if it will happen but if it doesn't it won't be from lack of trying.
Also, another blogger, Jessey, is starting on her weight lose journey. Her chat about wanting to lose the baby weight (she JUST had a baby) really made me realize that I can't see around eating sugary substances and nurse and expect it to fall off. Plus that crazy Pirate's Booty...
I am no stranger to weight lose. I was hefty in my mid-twenties and did Weight Watchers with 2 of my co-workers. It was a fantastic experience and I plan to incorporate it into this journey of weight lose. Also, after I had Ryleigh I was told by my family doctor that I was pre-diabetic and should do South Beach (which I did with great success). My plan to jump start the weight lose is to do South Beach. I feel that in order for me to be successful in the long run I will need to incorporate WW. I probably will join them after the wedding. Something about the accountability really motivates me! So till then I will be using this blog to give me the accountability factor. My first weigh in was this morning to give me my base #. I will be posting my weight lose next Wednesday.
Here's to happy dieting!

Okay, if you got time you can see what the past 2 months have been like since we've had Evan (view the video below). The picture above is on his actual 2 month birthday (yesterday). He's wearing a 3-6 month outfit and is about to bust out of it like the incredible hulk. He's crazy big! He's a good boy and last week he gave me a glimmer of hope... he slept through the night. From 10 pm to 4 am one night then the next night he went from 10 pm to 7 am (CRAZY). It felt good to have those stretches. Then we shot the whole thing and went to the pediatrician for his 2 month check up (4 shots and oral rotavirus vaccine). It screwed him all up and he is back to hibernating like a bear during the day. I can't blame him...it did seem pretty awful. Anyway, we're chugging along. He is smiling and follows me with his eyes. It's nice and now we're getting to the baby stages I like (did I ever mention I am not a fan of the newborn, although as far as newborns go, Evan was pretty sweet). So watch the video when you have a few minutes to kill... I actually post video from the hospital (nothing gross - I am so not like that and wouldn't allow that to be taped - although I did allow a student to view my birth because I had my epidural and was so focused on not throwing up I could have had a whole amphitheater of folks watching and would have never noticed). Anyway, enjoy!
