Left Alone With Big Fat Fanny

So, I'd like to begin this little gab-fest by reminding you all of a post I wrote just over a year ago. You can read it here: Fat Bottom Girl. No, it's not a post about Queen (although I do love them). It's a post about me. And my fat bottom. Because I am a girl.

I was just getting started on Weight Watchers last year when I found out I was pregnant with the Sharkbaby. I was told that I could continue with the program throughout my pregnancy as long as I was staying in a healthy weight range.

That all went completely out the window with my first trimester.

I wasn't able to keep any food down except Kraft Mac'n'Cheese, hot dogs, and lemon drop candies. Yikes. So, at that point I decided that crappy nutrition was better than none at all. And I kept that mentality through the rest of my pregnancy. I ate what I wanted, when I wanted it. Still, I only gained about 30 lbs, all told. Not too shabby, considering that my diet consisted of bacon-cheeseburgers and tater tots.

Anyway, I digress. After I gave birth I still ate whatever wanted, whenever I wanted it. Then I decided that I would go back on Weight Watchers when I came back to work. I've stuck fairly close to it and set up on an exercise regimen. (Thanks, Amanda, for walking with me!)

And guess what... It's working! When I weighed in this week I'm at the lowest weight I've been since, well, probably high school. So, with the success, I plan on sticking with the plan.

So, when it's all said and done, I'll probably always be a little bit of a fat-bottom-girl, but at least it will be in the good way, right?

Congrats, Annie! I understand about the poor pregnancy nutrition. What is it about growing babies that all they seem to want to eat is white carbs and junk food? :-)
I think working to eat healthy and exercise is a worthy goal and in a few months, I may need to join you on your exercise outings :-)
