1st Trip to the Zoo

This past Friday I took off of work early and we packed up the car and headed to the zoo. I totally dislike the Zoo, we always seemed to have field trips there when I was little and I never liked it and can distinctly remember throwing up my lunch on one specific trip to the zoo. I am not an outdoorsy person by any stretch of the imagination and am quite possibly the most girlie girl when it comes to animals and bugs. They creep me out. But and this is a very big but, there is not one thing on this earth that I won't do for my daughter, so to the zoo we went. It's not like Randi said to me, "Mom, you know what I'd really like to do today? I'd like to go to the zoo." But being as she is only 10 months old, there are very limited things that she "likes" to do and she loves seeing animals. We stand out on our deck and watch the squirrels and birds and rabbits and she just loves it. She always just watches in amazement so I thought for sure she'd love going to the zoo. It was a beautiful day on Friday and it wasn't too crowded and she did love the zoo. She loved being around all the people, she loved seeing the geese and loved taking a ride on the train. We were only there two hours but she enjoyed the full two hours and that made it an awesome day. Just minutes of getting into the car and she was passed out from all the excitement. I'm glad she had a good time and I'm glad that I did not throw up my lunch. :0

Randi riding around the living room

My daughter is the coolest. She is so funny riding around on this little thing, it's by Fisher Price and it's called a corn popper. Her feet can touch the ground and she can totally move it herself but prefers to have mom or dad push her. Enjoy!

Camera Shy

Oh mom, please don't take pictures of me while I'm trying to nap.

I joined Nutrisystem yesterday. I had to. I'm fat. I gained 50 pounds with my daughter and still have 8 pounds to lose of that and before I had Randi I had gained 20 pounds with all the miscarriages. I am totally disgusted with my body, there are stretch marks and saggy skin everywhere. I only lost 17 pounds after having Randi, I've lost 25 pounds by dieting and exercising and since losing that, I've just given up. I'm ready to start again and need some help in doing so. I have never ever had to diet before, the weight always just fell off of me when I was younger. I have never been the chubby one in my family or friends and now I am. It's really hard to take in, but I have to do something about it then just sit here and complain. I have my 10 year class reunion coming up in September and almost every girl I graduated high school with looks exactly the same if not thinner now than they did in high school, even after having babies. The reunion is not why I want to lose weight, but it's motivation. I need to lose this weight for me so that when I go out, I don't feel like people are staring at me because I'm so disgusting. I don't feel comfortable in anything that I wear and I hate shopping because I just get frustrated because I don't know how to dress this body. Ok, that's enough complaining for one post, so wish me luck ladies, I'm gonna need it!
