I took my daughter to the pediatrician the other day and while we were there, I weighed myself. We don't have a scale at home so I pretty much judge my progress by how my clothes are fitting. My partner and I did the South Beach Diet a couple of weeks ago, with good results I think. I admit after the first two weeks I didn't really stick with it. I am eating less sugar now but I *do* love my carbs!

So, I am back down to my pre-pregnancy weight. Which is good, right? Cause for rejoicing and all that, right? Then why don't my pants freakin' fit?? I put on a pair of jeans today that *used* to be my "fat jeans." You know the ones. The ones I used to wear when my period was coming and i was totally bloated. I can pull them on AND button them but breathing is a challenge. I guess my body has just changed. My hips are wider, my tummy is poochier, and I am just going to have to lose *more*weight or buy new jeans. I refuse to graduate to mom jeans. Not gonna do it. Maybe I will try Ye Old South Beach for another week or so?

Also, we just bought a bike trailer. Lake path here I come! Going to the gym has been a challenge because the daycare is full half the time! And with summer coming, I think it's only going to get worse. I think we will cancel the membership to the YMCA and get out biking and walking more.

Okay, I'm done now.
