"Other people embrace
a little stress in their lives
and bam, they're skinny. Not me."
Truth be told, I have not lost one darn pound since having this baby in February. Of last year. That's right, she turned 9 months old yesterday and I am still wearing the same maternity shirts and stretchy black skirt that is fraying on the bottom that I have been wearing, for oh, the past five years, since this journey of mommying began. It's time for a change. I am not Barak Obama. I did not vote for him (well, for anyone really, I never bothered to register to vote in NJ - (Jess/Stu, if you're reading this, I'm sorry!)) but I will use his slogan, "It's about Time. It's about Change". Profound, huh? Yeah, not really, I know. But if it worked for him, it might just work for me.
30 days from now - okay, from tomorrow - I need another day to mentally prepare for this - is December 17th. Woohoo, Asara B'tevet, it's a fast day! That should help, right?
