I know this is really random, but I finally feel ready to share my deep, dark, embarrassing secret. I didn't actually gain 34 pounds while I was pregnant, I gained 40 something pounds. The exact number remains a mystery to this day.
Why did I lie about those last few pounds? Because I was really, REALLY embarrassed and ashamed of my lack of self-control.
I'm sorry to have lied to you guys. I feel terrible. Really, I wasn't planning on telling anyone, but I recently told Casey and my mom...and I figured I might as well just get it over with and tell the blog world.
Let this be a lesson to you all! You canNOT eat whatever you want the whole time you're pregnant, and stay within the recommended weight gain range. I am determined to do better next time around. After reading this girl's story, I am truly inspired to exercise and maintain a healthy diet throughout.
So here I am today, almost three months post-delivery, and still six pounds from my pre-baby weight. I'm hopeful that the remaining weight will eventually come off. Casey and I have implemented a healthy meal plan and we've been following it for a little over a month now (still avoiding exercise like the plague though!). You can look forward to a post all about our meal plan later this week.
