And Then There Were Four!

On June 12, 2013 at 4:56 we welcomed Matthew into our family. After a very crazy, scary delivery our beautiful baby boy entered this world with all 10 fingers and toes!
It has been a crazy 5 weeks of adjusting to being a family of 4 but I would not trade it for anything. I decided to keep Grace (our 3 year old) in daycare for 6 weeks. I have until the end of the month to spend some great time bonding with my amazing sun before we turn the world upside down and I have 2 kids at home. It will be an adjustment but I am really looking forward to enjoying the rest of the summer with my daughter. I am just hoping I can find enough to keep her busy!

Weight wise things are going okay. I finished my pregnancy at 227 lbs. What a terrifying number....I could not believe the number.....I am now down to 197.7. I have been lower but now that the fluid ( I apparently had loads!) is all gone I am starting to struggle a little. It has everything to do with what I have been eating and the fact that I am still not moving much. After a very hard pregnancy and crazy delivery I am slow and sore. I just feel so out of shape! Things will change when my daughter is home because I won't be able to eat the crap I have been eating because she is not allowed to eat that way. I really need to eat more like my daughter does! I feed my child so healthy and then I eat crap after she goes to bed. A good excuse is that I am REALLY tired, but excuses aside after my 6 week check on Wednesday I need to get my shit together.

I am afraid that I will not lose the weight......I didn't manage to lose it with my daughter and I can't fail again....
