Weigh-in Wednesday

It's over. Almost a year later, it's over. I never thought it would take me a year. I mean, I heard that old saying "it takes 9 months to put it on... blah blah blah" and I was like YEAH, HAH, 9 months to take it off my a**, I'll have it all gone in a few weeks. Arrogance is beautiful isn't it.

Regardless, I'm done. No more WIW posts. I'm over it and I'm sure y'all are tired of hearing me go on and on about a few pounds and how I need to exercise more and how I am addicted to chocolate and all things bad for me, and so on and so on. I will say that the three biggest weight lose busters for me this year were (1) being home all day without a car (most days), (2) exhaustion and (3) stress. Combine any of those and the result, for me, is a binge-fest where I contemplate the possibility of eating so much that my stomach explodes. Is this possible? I mean, yes, your stomach obviously has some heavy duty stretching power - but what if you just kept eating? Where does it all go? I wonder this about Jane sometimes because when you look at those stupid baby books, they say that baby's stomach is the size of a grape at this age, and then the size of a plum, and so on... well, if my baby's stomach is only the size of a plum, why is she drinking an 8oz bottle? :p I'm crazy, I realize. I'm pretty sure my life would make a fabulous reality tv series if, and only if, they could somehow manage to pull the thoughts directly from my brain with some super mind reader thingy-me-bobber. The things that go through my head are ridiculous sometimes.

Anyways, back to the weigh-in nonsense. I put on my old favourite, black dress pants (size 5) today to see how I was doing (pre-scale) and, well, they fit. Are they appropriate for work? No. More like appropriate for hitting up the clubs and there's no way I could sit down in them or I'm pretty sure the butt-seam would rip but, hey, there's like a bazillion girls wearing pants like this walking around thinking they look great, so why not me! :p ha ha ha. Hey, there's even guys (Jonas Brothers much?) wearing too-tight pants nowadays. Perhaps it's just my bodies way of telling me to be more trendy.

Here are the final side-by-side shots of week 1 and goal reached.

And for my hubby, a butt pic... :p
Ok, I have to go take a break now. My life is incredibly insane right now - I have no time (thus, neglecting the blog) and I need to force myself to take some time for me today.

Go for it April - although, with three babies, you have reason to take your time! :)

It does feel pretty great when it's done though - almost like I achieved the unachievable! :p
