Wedding Weight

So I'm back at this whole weight loss thing.  Not that I'm never not "at it", I just sometimes am more "at it" than other times.  I was all gung-ho several weeks ago but then the girls' birthday came and with it cake, chips, etc.  I tried to make a fresh start last Monday but darn if it's not Easter Candy Season and I succumbed to the beackoning of those scrumptious Cadbury mini eggs.  I did, however, resist the call of the Cadbury Creme Egg which is my absolute favorite Easter candy and can only be described as a preview of what awaits me in Heaven.  Sigh.  Anyway, in the 2 weeks following the girls' birthday I gained 4 1/2 pounds of the 8 (well, 7.8) I had lost since the beginning of the year.  So this last Saturday the 13th, which was exactly 2 months before our anniversary, I got back on the wagon.  I was hoping to be down to my wedding weight by then but that would require a loss of 10 pounds and I'm pretty sure I can't lose that much in just under 9 weeks.  So I'll settle for 7, which would put me at my lowest post-baby weight to date.

You know what's pathetic, though?  I mean, besides gaining 4 1/2 pounds in 2 weeks?  On the girls' birthday a year ago I was only 5 pounds over my wedding weight (and 7 under my pre-pregnancy weight.  Whoo-hoo!) and STILL couldn't lose it in the 2 1/2 months between their birthday and our anniversary.  Grrr.  One of these days...
