Fatty Fatty

Two by four, can't fit through the dressing room door. For those of you who know me in real life (IRL), you know I have always had issues with my weight. This is not a shock nor a surprise. Post baby, it is the same story. I was not one of those people who lost a lot of weight after having Jack and breastfeeding/pumping.

I know this is a baby blog, but my post partum weight can be a topic right?

I joined Weight Watchers today. It's time to do something about my weight. I lost almost 50 pounds a few years back on WW and kept it off for quite a while. Laziness, not tracking and just general not caring led me to gain all my weight back. I may or may not have actually put on a couple of more pounds - I will lean more towards may.

It's time to do something, so I am going to jump right in and do it! I was successful before, and I can be successful again.

My goal is not to blog about this too much. But, I will try and check in, much like I do with my PPD, often with my progress.

I can't believe I am going to do this, but I am going to post my starting weight. Gulp!

205.8 pounds.

Yes, you read that right. I told you I was a fatty! My short term goal is to lose 5% of my weight. If I can do that, I can make longer term goals.

Wish me luck on this exciting new journey! And if you try to sabotage me, I will cut you. Just sayin'.


  1. Rachel, I think you're great, and I fully support you in your weight loss battle. I actually just blogged about my frustration (and success) with weight loss. I've lost my 5% and 10% goals, and I'm still heavier than your starting weight. If I can do it and keep pushing on, I know you can. I'm here for any support, encouragement and venting if you need it.


  2. Don't feel badly- I weigh more than that! My mom and I joined the local fitness center last week and will start going tomorrow. I have also been calorie tracking... it's hard work, but I am determined to get this weight off!
