For me

Here is my sweet little man & me, and although I love this photo because its me & my boy I also hate it. I am the heaviest I have ever been in my life, I can't blame it all on Logan either, when I got pergnant I was the heaviest at that point. I have lost most of my pregnancy weight, just 7 more pounds to go, but overall I would like to lost 60 lbs. That is a HUGE number its so daunting. But I can do it, I have to do it, for Logan and for me!

I joined weight watchers this week, so far its going really good. Its work but its going to be so worth it. I want to look back at these pictures and love everything about them. I want to look in the mirror and like what I see. I want to feel good about myself.

Logan doesn't have good "genes" when it comes to weight issues. I am overweight, I have always struggled with my weight, so has Les. So have both of our parents and it just keeps going back. I want Logan to at least have healthy lifestyle habits, and I want to be an example of that. So now I am taking the first step. I am on my way, and I am feeling very motivated about it!!

I know you'll do great! Isn't the first step always the hardest? L gets cuter all the time!

You can do it!! I love the picture, the holidays are so much fun when you have kids. It gives it a whole new meaning:)

Girl, this post made me cry. Why? Because I could have written it. I soooo know how you are feeling and I've been really down about that too lately. I hardly have ANY pictures with Lucas (seriously, maybe 5 out of hundreds) b/c I cannot stand the way I look. I've only lost 10 lbs of the 45 I put on (and that was right away, I've lost nothing since coming home from the hospital).

I'm terrified of supply issues so I'm scared to count calories and working out is a joke right now between still healing and caring for L 24/7. It sucks. Good luck to you!
