Alright y’all, who the heck let me walk (er, waddle) around thinkin’ I was some hottie pregnant chick? Hello! Looking through pictures from last year totally threw me off of what I REALLY looked like at 9+ months pregnant… yikes! What’s worse is the before & after… er, well the before I delivered sweet baby Dutch but the after when I got all huge ;)
Before: 10 weeks along- 1st pregnancy (2nd time momma!) and I was overly excited to snag a few maternity tops. I had visions of not gaining any weight and having “a little basketball belly” so with visions of basketballs in my head, I went to the mall and tried on the maternity store belly band thing thinking, “Yep, totally going to rock the cute belly I can’t wait to get!” aaaaaaaaaaaaand then fast forward 30ish weeks
after 8,412 ding dongs, Taco Bell and Diet Coke to my delivery day and actual freakin’ huge NON-BASKETBALL belly:
Hello! At 10 weeks………… I still wore single digit jeans, fit easily in sandals with straps and could slide my wedding ring on and off. At 40 weeks……….. I added a chin, some wobbly “relief society arms”, the biggest boobs I’ve ever had but the chubbiest sausage toes known to man, (that b a r e l y squeezed into that poor pair of flip flops! Ha!) and a wedding ring that was now useless as it stopped fitting around month 7. Ha!
At 16 weeks post-partum now I have lost the majority of the weight gained but am working to get the remaining 15# off. Lemme tell ya, it’s way easier and more fun to gain weight than lose weight! But, why not make it a game?
Introducing VitalityWins.com, a simple game of healthy eating and lifestyle resulting in a loss of weight and a gain of healthy habits.
The more healthy habits you do in the day, the more points you earn- this game awards you for the good you do each day. It’s simple: positive points for good good and negative points for bad food. And as the creator behind the game says, by week 4 you won’t want it to end because you’re losing weight and feeling good!
I know this is true because we competed against some of our fellow bloggers [Jennie, Tausha, Lori and Sachiko] during the EVO Conference earlier this year and guess who won? Well, not me. LOL! Jennie did. Buuuuuut, I did lose about 10 pounds playing Vitality Wins so that’s a bonus of losing… get it, losing? ;)
I’m so funny, huh. Hahaha… okay anyway you take a looksie here to sign up and I’ll give you an update in a few months, on my little boys 1st birthday, of the final “after”. For now I’ll see y’all a bit later today with a crafty craft! XOXO
