So I tried on a couple of dresses that fit me after I had Riley, and they did not fit. I am so bad that I gained weight after I had Riley but before I even got pregnant with Sophie. Oh well in a month they will fit, and in 2 months they won't fit again, but this time it will be because they are too big! I am really trying to stay positive but looking at the pictures of me and then trying on the dresses knocked me down to reality 6.6 pounds is hardly a drop in the bucket of all the weight I need to still lose. The 21 pounds is 1/5th of the weight I am losing, no wonder no one has really noticed.

Okay so now for some things to look forward to, my husband has promised me the honeymoon of my dreams when I drop the weight as a reward. So I am deciding between 2 totally different vacations. First option would be a Sandals resort in St. Lucia, all inclusive, relaxing, easy going, free drinks, free food, beaches perfect get away from the kids and stress. Second option would be to visit my best friend in Cannes France, and some time in Paris. So fun to see Julia, hang out see Europe, it wouldn't be as relaxing, but definitely more to do, see, and oh the wine we could drink. So I go back and forth between the 2 options, one would be about relaxation one would be about fun fun fun, both are complete dream vacations for me. I have never been to either place, both are gorgeous places. So do I go with umbrella drinks, or bottles of wine?? I have time to decide still...What would you do?

I just wanted to drop in and give you some encouragement that you are doing great! I know from personal experience that looking at a large amount of weight to lose can be daunting, but look how much you have already lost!

I lost 150 pounds, so I really do understand. I would definitely choose France!! (I wish I had thought to get a nice reward at the end of my journey too!)

Take care, and keep your spirits up.

OMG!!! I went to the Sandals in St. Lucia for my honeymoon 5 years ago. There are 3 resorts there. I wanted a swim-up room (the pool is literally out your balcony door) and only one of the resorts has it but you get to travel between them and enjoy them all. It was the most perfect vacation ever. We totally want to go back or go to a Beaches resort someday to see what they do for kids.

On another note. 21 pounds is huge. It took me a good 30 pounds before people really noticed. You have nice little legs too. Give yourself a break and just stick to it.

6.6 pounds is so awesome!!! And you were on vacation? How did you manage? I am down right jealous of you lady. Keep up the great work. I will be checking on you....
