If you've been reading this blog for awhile, I think you'll know that one of my biggest fears (aside from losing a loved one or something) is gaining my weight back. I just don't want to go there again.
The last 6 months or so, I've been fighting the same 10 pounds. Up too far, then down some, then back up again. And again...I'm struggling to lose on a consistent basis to get back to where I was last summer. And I feel SO fat. So very large. But I know while I'm 20 pounds up from my lowest adult weight...I could (and have been) so much farther away. 80 pounds in fact. I'm still 80 pounds lighter than I was after Nate was born. And that's nothing to sneeze at.
And if that's not enough, I found a picture that was taken about 5 months after Mr. Nate was born. Are you ready? I was shocked when I stumbled upon it tonight.
Okay...here it is...
Yup. And I remember feeling like those jeans were good on me! What was with those little mini pockets??? Shudder
And that, I suppose, is a little bit of perspective.
