Having to See Your Stomach in Your Vacation Pictures

I got back from vacation and downloaded my pictures. While I knew I was no where near my ideal weight, I still did not think it was too bad. Boy was I wrong. On the first day the waitress pointed to my 8 year old son and said “1 baby” then she pointed to my 5 year old daughter and said “2 babies” and then she pointed at my stomach and said “3 babies”. That did not start the vacation off too well. But now that I have downloaded the pictures I so see what she meant!

I’m the mom of two great kids, without another on the way.  I have battled my weight for 15 years now and even if I have tried every diet out there, I never have managed to reach my goal.  I find I lose weight so much slower than anybody else I know even if I follow everything correctly.  I follow a spinning class 3 times per week and weight train at least once per week, but I cannot get the weight off my stomach no matter what I do.  I have recently started a website www.knit1painttoo.etsy.com where I sell hand knit baby hats.  I love knitting so I tend to want to sit down after supper to make hats instead of go for a walk or play with the kids.  I’m sure I have metabolic syndrome as I pretty much have all the signs but no high blood pressure.  I’m so glad I’m not alone out here and I’ve found others with the same problem.

I love to knit also! Hoping to knit something to cover my ‘baby’ stomach!
