So I'm trying to make myself shrink.
By the end of my pregnancy I had gained about 30lbs and I am trying to get rid of that business and FAST. I lost a lot as soon as Ellie was born and then I quickly plateaued.
Unfortunately, in the meantime I'm in a weird spot with regards to clothing. I'm too small for my maternity clothes (and also, they look like maternity clothes) but I'm way too big for my pre-pregnancy clothes. And also, I am kinda tired of my pre-pregnancy clothes too. They aren't so flattering.
So, for my birthday (I turned 28 in August) Grant gave me a Visa gift card to use to buy some new clothes. Old Navy has become a very dear friend to me with their stylish clothes and excellent prices.
I've bought a few pairs of pants, some tops, a few jackets for the Fall.... and I'm already feeling a little better about myself :)
Plus, look at these cute shoes I found at Famous Footwear:
To get the remaining weight off, I've started Weight Watchers. They sold me with the whole "you can still eat whatever you want" business, however that is a very good trick as the things I want to eat are about 26 points. And I only get 26 points a day so you do the math.
I'm feeling pretty hungry and I've lost two pounds so I'm not entirely convinced yet but I'm going to stick with it. I'm not going to give up yet but boy do I feel like having a big bowl of fettucine alfredo.
I'll keep you updated on my progress! And remember, Sunday is the EMMY's so be sure to check Sunday evening or Monday for the Annual Red Carpet Recap!
