LOSER

I guess I would give the contestants on the tv show The Biggest Loser a run for their money ~ I have lost 35 pounds in 3 weeks 1 day! That said I still have a lot more to go before I'm happy with my weight however it's an accomplishment none the less. I know breastfeeding two babies has a lot to do with it since I am not allowed to exercise yet because of my stomach/back issues that I hope resolve themselves. I'm still wearing the brace for my abdomen and have to for another 3 weeks at least. They might move me into something else after my 6 week appointment depending on how things are healing in my stomach. I guess my hopes and dreams for 6 pack abs again are a thing of the past unless someone will donate a tummy tuck to me like they did to Kate on Jon and Kate plus 8! Fat chance (literally)!
Last night I was driving home from Mom and Dad's house with the kids (Matt is on night shift) and I started to get that - "all four of these kids are really your responsibility...are you old enough for that kind of responsibility?!!" feeling I get sometimes. It's hard to explain really...sometimes I feel so old and sometimes I feel like I'm not old enough to be a married Mom of four and that I have no clue who in their right mind would trust me to raise 4 kids!! ;)
As I type this blog two of my kids are stuffing as much apple in their mouths as can fit and laughing hysterically at each other...I better stop it before someone chokes.

I think you look fantastic in that pic in your last post! I've dropped 40 pounds since the boys were born and I only gained 20 to start with. I'll be happy to get some sort of exercise going here in a few weeks, my jelly belly and bird legs are going to need some work.
