Whale...

Yeah, I feel like one today. I've lost a but of weight, and my 24s are a little too big. Well, I decided to get done 22s. Everywhere I've been, the 22s are too small. Damn it...I'm too skinny for my day jeans, and too fat for my skinny jeans.

My MIL gave me a $100 gift card to Kohls, but their 24s are to small. I couldn't even find a belt in my size. :( I did get a nice short, new shoes, and a pretty dress. I'm scared to wear the dress, though. I just feel so HUGE.

My husband says he loves me, and he says I'm beautiful, but I don't feel I deserve he sees me. I just had a baby 4 months ago, and I know a lot of this is still baby weight, and some depression. I know I'll eventually get slimmer, but right now, today,I feel like a whale. :(

I guess there's really no point to this post...I just needed to write out my thoughts, and vent to anyone other than my husband. He sees me through love, and today I guess I just don't feel like I deserve it. :(

Breastfeeding definitely helped me out a lot in loosing weight a long with exercise. I used to be around 200 after I had my daughter I'm around 150 and was 140 during the summer (I barely ate). I plan on loosing more weight. Just exercise, eat small meals, if you're breast feeding then continue to do so. You just had a baby and you'll loose the weight...it'll take time. Also remember that different stores clothes sizes run differently...don't pay too much attention to the number...only how they fit. I have pants as small as 8 and as large as 12; it just depends where you go.

You'll get to the weight you want to be at, just takes time. =)

Thank you all. I wrote a dress today for the first time in years for something other than a special occasion. My husband hasn't stopped staring at me, and damn if that doesn't make me feel better about it, too! :)
