It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve posted anything but sweets! I mean I love sweets, but let’s get real we can’t indulge in those all the time. As much as I would like to because that would pretty much rock my world. I’m all about the sweets. After I had RyRy in November I had a hard time losing the weight. At first it fell off and it was like magic. I was all like oh I got this, this will be easy! Then it stopped. Road block. Nothing happening. It was the middle of winter in Minnesota which is depressing enough but I couldn’t get my jeans back on. I finally broke down and went and bought a bigger size so I didn’t have to keep wearing my maternity clothes. I was pretty much depressed and felt like I was an ugly slob. I had all those Mommy hormones going on and none of my clothes fit. I was a mess.
