Chronicles of an Ass
Thanks to Sayre for reminding me to show my ass today. It's been such an overwhelming day that I almost forgot. So here it is... ta da!
Anyway, the important stuff to know:
Height: 5'3" (plus almost a half)
Weight: 159 as of this morning
Pants size: 12
Target pants size: 10
I know this is not a huge, lofty goal. But honestly, I was reading Losing a Hundredweight, and I was so inspired to eat healthy! I told my hubs all about it, and he agreed. This was, of course, after I'd gone to the grocery store in the rain with both kids. So, after it stopped raining, he went back to the store and bought some actual good-for-you stuff.
Our biggest problem now is that both our children are really small for their age. In the "less than 5%" in weight. They've always been that way, even back when I was breastfeeding. It's a fact of life. So, hubs and I are eating good, healthy, small portions, but we're trying to put weight on the kids. And face it, Doritos are going to put more weight on a kid than a bowl of strawberries for snack. So, we're giving them our stuff, but extra junk too. Like mac'n'cheese, which they love. Or, we make them mashed potatoes with whole milk. And they love cheese on EVERYTHING. We're fattening them up, a little bit at a time.
