The time has come

Well, I finally succumbed to the waves of junk mail hitting my various mailboxes and went to a Weight Watchers meeting today.

My weight has definitely plateaued over the last couple of weeks, and I think I've reached the limit of where childbirth and breastfeeding can take me. Also, I'm already starting to fall into some bad habits -- drive-thru lunches and quick but carby dinners -- that I'm starting to blame on "the baby." If I don't stop now, I'll probably find some way to extend my visit to Fatland until I get pregnant again (assuming, of course, that I can).

My main motivation at this point? It's so shallow I'm almost embarrassed to admit it. I confirmed yesterday that I'll be heading back to work in six weeks, and I really want to go back and have people think "Wow, she looks great!" I know it's probably ambitious, but I'd like to have lost another 15 pounds by then. I think I can do it.

So, I'll update here periodically on my progress. Not because I expect it will be all that thrilling to read, but because it will help keep me honest and motivated.

Oh, and the best part of today's meeting? The Chicklette blew a serious load in her diaper about midway through, complete with pre-show grunts and post-show farts. Heads were turned.

I've never been so proud!

Good luck on the weight loss! I'm getting anxious already to see how long it will take to get this weight off. I'm hoping to go back to work feeling great, too!

You had me laughing out loud with your Chicklette story. It sounds like something Drake would do. :-)

Aww...leave it to babies and dogs! And, why is that so cute and endearing when THEY do it? Lol.

I don't think that is shallow or vain at all (probably because I'd feel the same way!). I'll be following along so post away about all of the diet/exercise stuff you got!

Your last paragraph was too funny! I can't stop laughing! Good luck with the weight loss. I am not looking forward to that myself!
