Before and after pics of our first baby making experience

Okay, it was before our big digital crossover, so I had to dig out a couple to scan.
And this is basically how it goes for every pregnancy:
before: (notice the awesome selective coloring? Mad skills.)
Birth of Isaac, and a new coat of 80 pounds:
After (with Isaac):
Why would anyone want to do this again (and again)? I do not know. And, although the weight gain happens just as effortlessly each time, the weight loss gets more and more difficult, with each new babe. I have to change up the plan each time to keep my focus.
I did Weight Watchers. That was great the first time, but going back a second time wasn’t the same. Next, I did several days a week at a fancy gym and tracked my calories on That worked for the second round, and now I need to come up with my next plan.
This time, I think I’ll still do some gym workouts, but use the ghetto pool gym instead of fancy gym. I probably won’t have to worry so much about looking up and seeing my GYN, or several of the docs I work with, on the elliptical machine in front of me. And this TOPS group sounds good. Its a weight loss support group, but nonprofit, very cheap, and I manage my own diet.
That’s the plan.

    i think that looked like the same pic…hmm?
    I am sure whatever you chose to do will work. I know you want to lose the weight, so that motivation alone will help you. Keep it up Zoe, I KNOW you can do it. I have faith in you. Start running with Jason….train for a 5 k or something. Just enjoy the activity and make it fun. It will make it seem less like a chore and more of something you look forward to doing.
