I feel so frustrated with my baby weight/diet situation.

Lately, I am always STARVING. I can eat a huge meal and then be hungry again a half hour later. Breastfeeding, thank you for that. It also feels like nothing sounds good. I'm always hungry but never feel like anything. Then I end up snacking on whatever is around or easy to grab and then I just feel icky. I know I'm burning a lot of calories breastfeeding so much, and Tai eats so much, but I also feel like I'm just unhealthy and a chunk!

It's hard to get out and excercise, especially when I feel so wiped all the time, Colton works a lot, and the stroller is heavy and hard to take downstairs. So it's not easy to get outside to walk.

I am trying to cook healthy meals and feel better that way, but all in all it's a tough balance. Its hard to look at a stretch mark covered floppy belly and feel like I can't do much at this point! I can see why it's hard to lose the weight after having a baby. Yuck. Any advice?

I just had to vent. He's so worth the extra flab, but at the end of the day I feel a little bad that Colton comes home to me-covered in baby puke and poop with a pony tail and baggy sweats. And he kisses me and loves on me anyways. What a man.

I have a lot to catch up on, more to come!

  1. I I so know this feeling! I swear I have been stuck in a food rut since jenna was born. When I grocery shop I hardly buy anything but I somehow spend a fortune! I also fight exercise for the same reason about the stroller I am to the point I know I just need to get a mbership at the gym again with day care otherwise I don't do it. I did sign up for a 5k in lehi on June if you are interested in joining having a event helps me a lot
