In the last 5 years I have gained 180 pounds…

I am OHmommy.  And I am so happy to be here.  You can check out me out at home http://mom.buttermouth.com I am thrilled to be a part of this community and am excited to see what it will bring.

In the last five years I have gained a total of 180 pounds.  180 pounds.  Three pregnancies. 

I ate through my first pregnancy, I was 24, I weighed myself each day.   I gained 60 pounds and worried about each pound.  I gave birth to my son and lost all 60 pounds within a year.

I decided to enjoy my second pregnancy and threw out my scale, stepped backwards onto the one at the doctors.  I gained 60 pounds.I gave birth to my daughter and lost all 60 pounds in 10 months.

I exercised during my third pregnancy.  I weighed myself weekly and ate healthier (I was already cooking for two growing toddlers).  I gained 60 pounds.I gave birth to my daughter 9 months ago and I still have 20 pounds to loose.

My tummy is fluffy.  Very fluffy.  Everyone has their own idea of what it feels like to look good.  My goal is to feel good without my fluffy tummy, and to get out of my draw-sting sweats. 

(Just took a two minute break from blogging to grab a handful of Halloween M & Ms)

Hmmmmm…. this is going to be tough.

    I’m glad you’ve been able to lose the weight between pregnancies at least!!

  4. I was so afraid for you when I saw the title of your post. As I read on I was very glad to learn that the 180 pounds was not cumulative. That would be so sad for you. Then I remembered, I am 140 pounds over weight! Awww Crap!
