I haven't been this in shape since before I had Aedan. And even then I had gained weight from all the fertility meds and stress I was dealing with. After 6 months of weight loss, watching how much food I'm putting in my body, and walking and/ or running a bit, I have surpassed my weight loss goal and am only 3.5 pounds away from my bonus goal. I don't diet. So don't get me wrong. I am certainly not starving myself. I still snack at 10 pm if I want. I eat what I want.. I just don't do it alot. :)
If this sounds like I am tooting my own horn then so be it. Toot toot. I haven't been in size 4 jeans since Chloe was about 1. I can finally get all my super cute jeans back on my body and not worry about the button shooting off and taking someone's eye out in the process. The down side? Some of my other super cute stuff is a tad bit large. And that really stinks.
I feel great. I am thinner and smoke free. It's gonna be a great year.

About ten years ago Jim and I decided we'd like to to have kids and began the long, fun, exciting and sometimes extremely heartbreaking journey that ended with a screaming baby boy named Aedan. On this day 7 years ago my life was changed forever more. I was finally a Mother. I couldn't contain my joy it flowed out of me in my tears of joy first when the Dr told me I was pregnant and then again when she told me "it's a boy!". I would never be the same from that moment on, and I couldn't have been happier. I'd sit there in the hospital bed with him all by ourselves and snuggle with him and think "He's all mine". I still do on some days when he looks at me with that certain goofy grin or surprises me with some interesting fact that I figured he could never have known.
He's my first born. My only son. My Aedan. Happy 7th Birthday to my Monkka Monkey, my Boog. I hope you continue to explore and crave more knowledge. Stay funny and silly and always look for the fun stuff.
