Shameless Brag

I just want to announce that I've gotten tons of stuff done in the last two days. Important stuff, too. You all would be proud of me. I just need to keep up that momentum.

I also have to shamelessly brag that I am only 5 exact pounds from pre-pregnancy weight. Pre-BIG KID weight at that! This is a result of my stringent diet of stress and drugs, and I'm pretty freaking pleased with myself.

Don't get me wrong, things aren't where they used to be. I still have a muffin top. I don't look nearly as good naked as I did 5 years ago. I also still have self-diagnosed Body Dismorphic Disorder about my arms. I thought my butt had gotten a lot smaller, because my bathing suits aren't fitting right, but now I'm suspecting that my butt is actually just migrating south. It's just not looking as perky these days. I'm really scared that I'll end up being one of those old ladies with the way high up pants and no butt at all. I hadn't really realized that the butt can actually flatten out over time. That really sucks.

But anyhoo, I am happy with the number on the scale at Publix, and it's been a long time since that happened. Just thought I'd brag about how thin and productive I'm being.

If you were on the scale at Publix I'm assuming you had clothes deduct another two lbs!! You go girl!

Lunges girl, lots of lunges. Extra points for holding little kid while lunging. My butt is slowly making it's way back to it's rightful position.

You go girl!

and add to that list of huge accomplishments... posted some very useful anti-smear material for Obama today.

If you can enlighten just one person, it was worth the time to put it together.

Keep your thick skin tho :)

Stress will do that to you! Congrats on the fabulousness, and for getting on a scale in freakin' Publix!

Holy shit that's brave!

Ooh, M, I do that! I put my gargantuan baby to good use and do the lunges and squats while holding him, too!

And, Ashley, I'm sure that you look hot, hot, hot in a bathing suit. Sadly, I am not quite bathing suit ready... I'm working on it, though. My post-baby muffin top is really not wanting to vacate the premesis. Fucker.

YAY for being productive. I usually prefer procrastination, but I've been gettin' it done the past couple of days, too. And, I admit, it does feel good. But, I don't want to overdo it, ya know... And, I certainly don't want people to start expecting more of me, so I'll be sitting my ass back on the couch soon.

I just found out Mr. Right is lurking in the Closet.

If I spot him I will call him out :)

He's usually very stealth.

Everything migrates south over time, dang it.

Insane Mama said...

yes, do the lunges, they suck, but perk the butt right up! and invest in a good bra and three quarter length sleeves

Good for you - productive and skinny!! I'm impressed. I've been pretty productive this week but I am still not skinny, dammit.
