Shrinky Dinks!

Anyone who has had a child can tell you, losing that baby weight can be hard....REALLY hard. Unless of course, you were one of those lucky women who gained only 25 pounds and only in the belly.... I unfortunately, was not one of those women. I gained a whopping 50 pounds and after my little 7 pound 6 ounce baby was born, I didn't magically shrink back to my original figure...go figure!

Well, I am slowly working my way back down, and while I can once again wear my old pants, (as well as new ones in my old size) my body is not shaped the same. My feet have not completely returned to normal, as I still have shoes I cannot squeeze my foot into, no matter how hard I try (I miss you Betsey).

Today, however, is a small victory....I am wearing lovely pants in my old size, and my favorite knee-high Nine West lace front boots! And to top it all off, my mom told me I looked skinny! Woot!!! Today is a good day, and I think I will celebrate by buying me something pretty! Will it be the shoes I have been lusting after or a new cream eyeshadow to replace my nearly empty tube of "Wet-n-wild"? Hmm.....

I found your blog via my blog ( This post really resonated with me and I wanted to offer some support. I was a crazy loon losing all that baby weight when I was finished. I do not have "skinny genes" but I fit in my skinny jeans, if you know what I mean. I worked really hard at it and I know you can too. It doesn't come easily but I believe anyone can do it. Best of'll get there!
