Can’t blame the baby…

I may have some form of body dysmorphic disorder, but I always thought I looked good. Sure I was still 35-40 pounds more than what I weighed when I got pregnant with my 1st child, but I was not fat.

Of course, each photo told me differently.  Every photo taken of me this year was horrible.  As the clothes got tighter and tighter, I decided enough is enough.  Chubby is not the new black.  I should not need to buy clothes because I am busting out of my old ones… no, I should get new clothes because I want to look fabulous.  When I buy new clothes I don’t want to worry about covering the mushroom top.  Bathing suits shouldn’t have to be miracles.

I need to do something.  Times are tough.  I can’t spend thousands of dollars on ready made meals, and we already are stuck in a contract to a gym so it is time I used it…

I am taking you on my journey.  Will I be successful?  I hope so, but if I am not …hopefully we will all learn from my mistakes.
