One day I think -"Wow you look great for having 5 kids" and the next day I see a picture and can't believe that's me. I want to be able to say "Wow I look great because I work hard and just look great". I don't want it to have the clause "for having 5 kids". I know 5 babies can do a number on your body...but I am getting so discouraged with myself over this weight loss or lack there of. After #4 was born I lost it all and then some by the time he was 10 months. Of course I was working hard because my ten year reunion was coming up, and maybe that's what I need a goal of something important coming up. Baby #5 is 13 months and I had lost most of it by the time he was 6 mos. but I have since gained 10 back. I love to exercise and do so as often as possible (at least 3-4 times a week and now that it's summer it's 5-6 times a week). But for some reason I cannot seem to budge the scale. I know that I am an emotional eater and when things get crazy around here I catch myself heading to the pantry. I also know that we ate way too much fast food during baseball season.
So, I am trying to decide if I should join Weight Watchers again or if I should just keep pumping up my workout and watch my calories. I just wish I had the magical answer b/c I know I have the potential. I think that's why I am so discouraged....because I know this body has great potential I just need to get the eating better and show what it can achieve.
