AW: Nine Months On...Nine Months To Take It Off

So everyone told me NINE months to put the weight on... NINE months to take the weight off.  During the first two trimesters of my pregnancy, I thought: Yeah freaking won't take ME nine whole months.  I had planned to train for a marathon in October 2009 and  I laughed when The Dad said, "You just wait until you surpass Gator Guy's weight".  Again: Yeah freaking right...not ME!  I remember looking back at The-Greatest-Mum-in-the-World saying, "the Doctor said 25-30 pounds, so that is what I am going to stick with."  HA.

A BIG FAT HA, I  now say to my 20-weeks-pregnant-self and to my close to octo-mom-ish-self.  (And then I cry a little bit).

The truth is...I gained more than the recommended 25-30 pounds....DUH.  Put a girl on bedrest for 7 weeks and not only does that belly continue to grow, but so does that Boo-Tay.

Total weight gain: 50 big ones.

So here I am NINE months after Mr. T joined our little family, with all 50 big ones outta here...gone....history!!  And yes, those of you keeping track, it is a little more than NINE months, but I wanted to make sure I could get through the holidays successfully....which I did.  Yay for me!

So yes, I will take my AW (Attention Whore) moment, and give myself a huge pat on the back.  I have never been big on compliments and quickly change the subject when given one.  But when people would say I looked great post Mr. T, I proudly said, "Thank you, I have been working really hard!"

So long 50 big ones...

Stay tuned, because I will fill you in on How I Did It.


  1. Good for you! I will anxiously await all your tips on how you did it...

  2. You are awesome! Only 9 months and you got it all off! Wow. Yes, I will be waiting to see how you did it:) It usually takes me around a year to get it off. And I must say that our weight gains are almost dead on! Although I gain about 10-15 lbs in that first 12 weeks...whoops. And every time I tell myself, "no 50 lbs for me this go round"...HA. My goal this time is just to not go over that 185 mark-we'll see though. The holidays did not treat me well. Or maybe it was that they treated me a little TOO well;)

  3. I think that is awesome that you lost all that weight in only 9 months and EVEN MORE AWESOME that you made CHARTS and Stuff. Very COOL!

  4. 2Busy & Kelsey - Yes, I will hopefully post this weekend the first part of how I did it! I of course took lots of notes, read many tips, and look forward to sharing.

    Bill - Thanks! I am such a visual person and love giving myself kudos that only a chart would do :)

  5. Congrats that is awesome!

  6. Great job! My "baby" is 7 and I still haven't lost all of the 45 I gained with him.

  7. Hi! I followed you over from Mama's Losin It and I have to sure seemed to have "lost" it too!

    That is awesome! My baby is 4 1/2 and I still have these 30 pounds following me around.

    Yay for you!

  8. That's great! And yes, I'm jealous. :)
