baby weight?

exactly how long after you have a baby do you have to lose the weight?
i'm not sure that there's a specific time frame, at least not one that i've ever heard of, but i feel pretty confident that when your child is 9 1/2 months old, you can no longer call it 'baby weight.'
when i first got pregnant, i promised myself that i wasn't going to gain a tremendous amount of weight, and that went out the window.
then, once i had becca, i promised myself that i would lose the weight within the first few months. again, out the window!
now that i'm still HUGE and no longer have an excuse, i've finally decided to jump on the weight loss bandwagon!
while i will NOT be posting my weight here, as i would never want to embarrass myself that much, i will be posting my weight loss. i'm hoping i can use that 'accountability' as motivation!

so, week 1: lost 5 pounds!
it's always so encouraging those first few weeks:)
let's just hope i can keep it up!

Love the new blog look!

And 9 1/2 months can still be considered baby weight....I still use the excuse two and a half years later!!!
