Vanity Pounds

The baby weight is still here. 17 lbs of it to be exact. While I'm considered to be well within "normal" for my weight regarding my age and height, I don't feel normal.

So, I've started a low calorie diet that includes walk/jogging 5 days a week. I try to stay under 1200 calories a day with about half and hour of exercise. It's working so far. In December I was at 129, today I'm at 122, progress I suppose. But, we have a vacation planned in six weeks and I've set a goal of 2-3 lbs to lose every 7 days.

It's going to be hard. I'm not used to not being able to eat whatever I want. Hell, in high school I struggled to gain weight at 90 lbs soaking wet, completely different ball game now.

I'm ready, let's burn some belly fat!!

Here's a pic of the new bathing suit I've ordered and my main motivation. Yeah, It's vain of me, but not as vain as wanting to pay off my debt in the next two years in order to buy a  nice set of silicone C cup boobs? Eh? That's what I'm doing next in the vanity department after I obtain my flat stomach.

Did you order that bathing suit?? It's sooo gorrrgeous!!! I want one too!! that's a good pic for a goal, too. Not unrealistic. She looks healthy. And Yes 7 pounds is progress!!! Walking every night, or at least 5 nights a week, is definitely going to shed the weight! I'm walking too. I've got ten to go!! Okay, okay I've got 14 to go, but I will be pretty dern tootin excited about myself if I get down ten more LOLOL

YES! I ordered it!! Hopefully it will be come in enough time to do some before and after pics! Whoot, Whoot! My stomach may never look like that again, due to the stretching the 10 lbs baby caused but I'm pretty sure I can get darn close! Let's both do the before and after in swim suites and see what losing 10 lbs does! Oh, and I have never tanned before a day in my life but I'm going to start before my trip. :0)

Oh my gosh well maybe you should do a self tanner and preserve your lovely skin!!! You will grow old to be like one of those monks that is 90 years old and looks 25 lol. I have started tanning too, only covering my chest, neck and face with sunscreen and the towel. I can self tan those. But I am allergic to self tanner on the other parts lol. But I just think my new bathing suit is going to look soo much better with a tan!! As will this Blush colored one. don't want it to be too close to your color of your skin or it will wash out. MAN I bet you tan easy though, don't you! My bathing suit doesn't come in until mid july because the bottoms are on back order!! :((( So I will do a before and after in one of the ones I already have. I'll do it today!! :)

The color of the bathing suit was one of my main reasons for wanting a deep tan. Yep, I tan pretty easy. Aden does too, he already has a lil farmers tan. But, now that it's getting warmer outside he'll be covered in the 110 proff baby sunblock. lol. My should come in a couple of weeks. It was back ordered too. :(
p.s. I will NEVER tan my face. lol
