Losing it.

I hereby reinstate Watch Me Shrink Wednesdays! Who's in? (I'd do some sort of fancy linky thing here but I have no idea how.) So if you are losing it too just leave a comment and let me know.

So here's the deal... Jack is 7 months old, and I guess I had the delusion that the "baby" weight would have come off by now. By baby weight I mean the 15ish pounds that I gained while pregnant, and the 15ish pounds that I had to lose before I got pregnant. I got fed up only having a couple things that fit, and with spring coming NOTHING really fits. So. Yeah. There’s that.

So to get rid of my "protective layer" I am getting on my new friend the elliptical, and I'm doing that for a half an hour. Also I'm eating less.
Now that the weather is improving I see walks with Jack in the park and around the neighborhood happening in the near future too.

The Stats:
Starting weight: 216 ( 2 weeks ago.)
So I weighed in this morning at 212.
My goal is 180.

Pounds lost: 4

Pounds to goal: 32

To some people that may seem like a high goal weight. But I'm 6 feet tall, and if I weigh much less than that I look scary.

The List: Lovingly edited to suit what I wnat to write about.
Day 1. I have a ____ month old and already I'm thinking, I'm going to miss him at this age. Have you felt that way, and what age do you miss the most?

Wishing you luck! If I ever start blogging again maybe I'll try to do the every Wednesday thing with you :) I have about 30 (maybe 40) to lose too.
