That would refer to my stomach. I'm telling you, I got such horrible stretch marks. As you can see from the picture (4 days before baby was born) I was so huge that I think my stomach actually looks fake. So now my stomach is a stretch mark jiggly mess. And as I lose weight, it seems like it just looks worse instead of better. My dear husband, bless his heart, told me last night that my stomach shows what a proud mom I am. I was almost in tears. Sometimes I need to hear something like that to remind me that my daughter is so much more important than having a flat, smooth stomach. It's really so insignificant but I guess as a woman, it's just one of those things we cry about.
Weight loss is actually going really well for me. I am 17lbs down as of today. I'm actually 7 lbs lighter than I was pre pregnancy. Still about 28lbs to go, but I'm slowly making my way to the half way mark.
I'm also starting to get that baby itch again. Seeing all my pregnant friends makes me really miss being pregnant. I'd love to have another one soon but then I think of the cost of two babies in daycare full time and it snaps me back to reality!
Well, I'm off to the cottage this weekend. Hopefully the weather holds out!
