I’m finding it hard to shake this weight…

Yes, I know, I know… I only had the baby eight weeks ago..

I really don’t know what it is with me, but after this pregnancy, I’ve been really wanting to get rid of this weight… I think it’s because I gained waaaaaaay more weight than I expected to due to the bedrest I was on for a majority of my pregnancy.

I’m still at about 170lbs and I’m a loose size 14 jean.  I say “loose” because the size 14 jean is pretty loose on me, but I know that the size down is still too tight for me.

My Fitbit is on me constantly, and it has motivated to move more.  However, I had to lower my daily steps goal from 10K to 5.5K.  I’m finding it nearly impossible to make 10K steps a day, especially with my life right now.  Honestly, I’m finding it difficult to even make 5.5K right now!  I push myself, but most days, I just don’t make it.   I just refuse to lower my steps goal anymore.  In fact, my goal this week is to hit my steps goal every day, Monday thru Friday.

Pending the weather and how K is doing, I try to take the girls out around the neighborhood in our double stroller.  The path I take is about a mile, and really puts a dent into my steps goal.  I wish we could go out and do that more often, but sometimes the newborn is just not in the mood, and I can’t force it.  I try to substitute it by walking aimlessly around the house, but I don’t seem to be getting as many steps in.

We’ve plugged in the Xbox 360 Kinect back in and I’ve tried to do a workout session with our Dance Central game.  It’s definitely a workout, and I really need to try to make time to incorporate that more into my week…

I know this weight is going to go down.  I just wish that it would go down faster than it really is…

I’m just so impatient.  Summer is coming soon (because this is Southern California and we have no real seasons…) and I want to look somewhat decent for the many trips to the beach I promised M we would go on..

I need new jeans.  I’m still wearing my maternity jeans around, but because they have been through two pregnancies, everything has been stretched out and the no longer really fit.

When I was pregnant with M, I think I wore these maternity jeans until about the time I went back to work.

I tried to go to Target to buy some jeans about two or three weeks after I gave birth to K.  I had NO idea what size I was.

It’s not a great feeling trying to figure out what size I was.  I didn’t want to grab a size that was too small because that would just make me feel terrible.  So, I went with what I though was too big.

Size 14.

I went into the dressing room afraid that it still might be too small.

Surprisingly, it fit.  Perfectly.

Secretly, I was hoping they would be too big.

Nope.  They fit.

At my smallest, I was a size 2.  My usual pre-prego jean size is normally around size 7 to size 9, depending on brand.

So, for now, I’m a size 14.  What seemed encouraging to me was that I was a comfortable size 14.  It wasn’t a size 14 that I had to squeeze myself into.  I was a size 14 with a little bit of room but still too big to be a smaller size.

I didn’t buy the jeans.  I probably should, but I didn’t.  I don’t know why.  I just didn’t.

Maybe I’ll buy some next month…
