my postpartum body

"Feeling fat last nine months but the joy of becoming a mom lasts forever." - Nikki Dalton

It just helps in conditioning my mind to be more PATIENT. Sometimes I even overeat especially when the table is overflowing with food. LOL. It's time to change that attitude. I promised myself I will get out of this weight. I can't stay this way. It sucks! I know I couldn't do it overnight. Losing weight is just a little harder to do. But it can be done.

I wanted to delete this but baby pauline is just so adorable in this picture, I decided to keep it. This will serve as a reminder for me to get back in shape. Or I'll die of depression. :)
