Inches and pounds!

So I have been super discouraged lately because of the leftover baby weight. But I just wanted to announce that I have lost 5.4 lbs! And on top of that, a much needed 2 inches off my stomach.
So that means I have 30 lbs left to go.
Yes, it sounds daunting, but I was so happy to realize that I had lost that first five. (That took me about two months.) So at least I've started to chip away at it. This is going to take hard work, and I'm going to make myself do it. Let's just hope it doesn't take another two months to lose the next five.
I woke up at 6:30 (which is really not that bad,) and went for a run outside, I am determined to do that at least 3 to 4 times a week. I was kind of using the excuse that I didn't have time to run. But apparently I do, I just have to make time. I also have been hiding behind the "I'm nursing, so I can't diet," excuse while I devour any food that comes close. Not any more, my friends. I am going to do it. Wish me luck, and if anyone wants a running/ weight loss buddy, let me know.

I totally used the nursing (or in my case, pumping) excuse. And when I actually DID diet, my milk started drying up. Super lame. And way to go on the first 5lbs. I think the first 5 are as hard as the last 5! Speaking of, I wish we lived closer so we could be running and diet buddies cause I still have the last 5 I want to lose. Yep. Remember when I told you about it 2 months ago when your first blogged about weight loss?! lol. I am good with exercise but if I could just stop eating so many yummy treats! AAAAHH!
