July 21

Seriously, I need to do something about what I'm eating! I'm glad I started blogging my food diary - it's a great start. Lets me see what I've been eating and where I need to make changes. It also makes me think twice - sometimes thrice - about what I'm about to eat, and has me watching calories and fat content a bit more closely. So it's a start.

I need to avoid raisins. I love them, but they do not agree with me. Such foul gas afterwards - my poor husband. There, I admitted that on the Internet. Such a lady I am! I also should do some sort of colon cleanse. Something to clean out all the fermented sugar that I know is hanging out in my gut causing all this bloat. I seriously look pregnant. Other people gain weight in a normal fashion - I gain it in my tummy. Oh, my thighs, butt and arms have definitely seen better days, and my hips & ribcage haven't yet shrunk down after they spread asunder while I grew two humans in such a short span of time. I'm imagining some sort of vacuum sealing device that could suck all the extra air out of me?? I'm certain I would go down at least 3 pants' sizes. I haven't yet done my measurements, but I think my waist is around 40"... YIKES!

I'm still breastfeeding, so I know my body will retain a layer of fat for that, about 5-10 lbs worth. (Lovingly referred to as "maternal fat stores" in all the pregnancy books.) Along with that fat, my boobs probably weigh another 10 lbs total, more when they are full of milk. Oh joy!

Dear reader, aren't you glad you clicked on this blog??!
