Sandie Simply Says

“Mommy, we’re going to have another baby!”

Filed under: General,HAYSAY,Weight Loss — by Sandie @ 9:22 pm

“No, honey, Mommy’s just fat.”

That was the conversation between my 4 year old and I while we were sitting next to the hotel pool on Hilton Head Island. And my big smack in the face that it’s time for me to regain control of myself. I need to drop the excuses and do what I need to do.

In February of this year, I *only* needed to lose 5 pounds to get to my “happy” weight. As of this morning, I need to lose almost 20. Even worse, according to my scale I weigh just 3 pounds less than I did when I first joined Weight Watchers in 2001.

I tell myself I’ve been under a ton of stress. I have too much to do. The excuses are endless, but that’s really all they are: excuses.

So, today I’m going to drop the excuses. Starting tomorrow, I’m going to start tracking again.

Part of my plan is to get back into HASAY. No more dropping out. So, here’s my post. A week and a half late, but it’s here!

  1. Ouch, I feel for you, I’ve had my belly fat mistaken for “baby” fat on more than one occasion. As summer has progressed, my waistline has expanded. I’m with you in recommitting to an exercise program, now if I could only get my kids to cooperate and give me a few minutes of peace, that would be greeeeeeeeeaaaatttt. 😉

  2. I read the title and was about to congratulate you but uhm, instead I’ll yell at you to get your butt in gear! I could easily pass for someone in my second trimester and I’ve been hitting the gym a lot lately. You can too! Welcome back… hope things get less stressful for you soon.

  4. Good for you, heeding the wake up smack. 🙂

    If you’re still at Hilton Head, maybe you can take some good long walks on the beach and move around in the pool instead of sitting next to it. Good low impact exercise.

    And this is a great time to take advantage of all the great summer fruits and vegetables – lots of light eating with cold soups and salads.
