Get to work, bitch. (probably NSFW.)

So far to go.

So, one would think that when you’re at the top of an acceptable weight range for your height and then you drop 18 pounds that you could put on a bikini and head to the beach, looking fantastic.

Such is not the case after 2 babies and not working out since the summer of 2010.

I am soft, round, doughy, jiggly, lumpy, and bulging in all the wrong places.  None of my pre-pregnancy jeans fit me in the waist.  I have 13 pounds till goal which is probably more like 16 when all of this dieting balances out.

But by the looks of me, I have a very long way to go.  I look nothing like I did at Bikini Challenge I, weighing only 2 pounds less than I do right now.  That postpartum mama had been working out for at least 4 months.

I believe in my heart that this was the easy way out.  It’s less of an effort to buckle down for a week and a half than it is to make healthy choices, eat your fruits and veggies, drink your water and stay away from alcohol for the two months it would have taken to lose the same amount of weight.  I had a cold on days 2, 3 and 4.  I had severe engorgement from weaning my baby for 10 straights days.  I have to take care of my two little ones all by myself for 5 hours a day while fielding business calls and keeping the house from exploding and stressful doesn’t even begin to describe the situation and still I know I took the easy way out.

The hard work starts now.

I’m glad it’s winter.  I’m glad I get to cover up in tight jeans and a sweater in NYC next weekend.

I’m going to go do some situps now and then buy a pair of jeans that fit me.
