The dreaded bathing suit

Whats a camping trip without partaking in the lake activities? So against my better judgement I pulled out my dreaded bathing suit put it on and skipped down to the beach with my family. I hate my bathing suit its a brown one piece that has a little skirt thingy at the front that I guess is supposed to....what? Give me the illusion of looking skinny? No the arm and back fat cancels out that. Hide my crotch? But why would I want to hide my crotch its the only part of me besides my ankles that is not fat. Give me the safety of having a little more material to hide behind? Who knows. So I put on my swim suit and pranced around the beach in front of all the little skinny girls baking in the sun paranoid they are all looking and snickering at me. "Hey I may die of heart disease, but your gonna die of skin cancer." As I was walking into the water I happened to notice a group of middle eastern women also entering the lake all fully clothed and thought to myself now they have the right idea. How I would love to throw on my baggy jogging pants an over sized t shirt and frolic in the water with out a care in the world. Then again how do you stay afloat with all those clothes on plus they would be a bitch to dry. Hopefully this will be my last summer in my brown suit and next summer I can frolic in my bikini but hold the skin cancer please.

Weekend camping trip

On a spur of the moment Evan and I decided to take Jack our 2 year old son camping. So we ditched the baby at my parents and off to the woods we went (Well if you count a Ontario provincial park the woods) I was very careful in planning our menu I picked hamburgers and hot dogs that were very low on points and packed lots of fresh fruit and other healthy snacks. All in all it was a success we got in lots of swimming and walking including my very short late night speed walks to the washrooms. I have a slight gain on my scale but that is expected considering I lost 6.6 lbs last week. I won't consider it a gain until I have my official weigh in on Wednesday.

Back at it again

Well after giving birth to my beautiful new son I am back at it. Re joined WW July second and have lost 18.2 lbs so far so I am off to a great start. I had a very difficult pregnancy was very sick, but still managed to gain 30 lbs. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes at 35 weeks which means I now have a 50% chance of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. At 36 weeks I went into labour and gave birth to my 9 pound son. He had some health issues and was in the NICU for 10 days and I can't help but feel if I had taken better care of myself before I got pregnant he would have been fine.
