Something a little rounder than it could be. Find fat in your space.
I couldn't believe it when I read todays promt... I had just come downstairs from a mass trying on session of all my clothes that are way too tight. I am feeling particularly down at the moment about my weight, as nothing I do will shift the extra stone and half I am carrying. W

After I had Oliver the weight came off easy peasy, but this time it just doesn't want to shift.

My goal is to be able to wear a pair of linen trousers I wore on Oliver's first birthday, on Harry's first birthday... it seemed a realistic goal to set myself, but the months are rolling by so quickly and I am still no nearer to being able to wearing them.

So this morning I dug out the exercise vids, and I am going to start them today... not putting it off until tomorrow, it has to be today.

In my next life I hope I come back as a thin person.
Well yesterday I said i'd be back with that I did last night... well I didn't get round to doing anything as I got distracted by Casualty and Jaws 2...LOL!!! by the time the film had finished I had to make bottles up for Niblet, and then I went to bed... but tonight I will be on the scrapping case:)

I like the story of your shot and I can feel with you. I have exactly the same weight probs with my second pregnancy.

If I lived anywhere near you we could exercise together!! I need an exercise buddy. Those baby pounds do tend to want to stay with you and refuse to leave. Good luck with the videos.

Love your interpretation. Think I may soon have to be digging out the Rosemary Conley videos myself. I tell myself that because I'm feeding Jemima myself that it's not good to diet/lose weight etc at the moment and that chocolate is a necessity to make good quality milk LOL. Hope the DVDs/videos work for you. Look forward to seeing the results of your scrapping time later!

Ooh Louise, I have that much too much too. IYKWIM. But I had my baby 11 years ago, so what's my excuse?
Great thought behind the photo. Good luck.

How about getting the linen pants taken out? Sounds like a much better plan to me :o) Great idea for the prompt x

Sending you ((hugs)). Like the others I really know where you are coming from.

I am sure that my metabolic rate dropped to zero after I had my second child. It sure feels like it and that was 12 years ago :)

Be kind to yourself. Energy from eating is so important when you have young children :)

Great interpretation. I nearly, but quickly decided not to, took a photo of the cellulite on my thighs ! UGH !

Jemma said...

you are SO silly!!! You are a beautiful young (well youngish :P) lady who should have more confidence to believe in herself!!

(telling off over!)

love the interpretation and im totally with you, bought a DVD the other day (still in its packing though!)
