Ok, come on.  I've been measuring my portion sizes and eating well balanced meals meticulously since giving birth.  Even though you are supposed to wait 6 weeks to work out I've been doing hikes for three weeks and just started doing my workout videos again this past week.  Every other day for at least 40 minutes or more I've been exercising.  I have not lost a single pound since the first two and half weeks after labor!  How does this make any sense?!  If I ate whatever I wanted and sat around all day I'm sure the number on the scale would sky rocket...but to do all these things so stringently and not have a single pound shed?!  I'm so frustrated I could scream.  Everyone keeps saying, oh you did it once you can do it again, or you'll be fine it's only been 5 weeks.  Well, really, I'm not so confident in myself if I'm doing everything right and not one pound has come off since I started my exercise and diet regime again.  I see my OB/GYN Tuesday as well as my consultant from Jenny Craig.  I am hoping that one or both of these people have insight into what the heck is going on with my body.  I'm praying that my body is out of whack from birth and things need to mellow out a little or that my stress is hindering my progress.  What frustrates me even more is when I hear, you were teeny tiny before why is it that important to get back to where you were, you have a baby now and you look fine.  Well guess what, I've been heavy all my life.  I've battled weight all my life.  I finally had found something that worked for me and I enjoyed not having to think twice about clothes or sizes.  I loved my body and after working SO HARD it's not fair if having a baby means that my metabolism is destroyed for good.  LOL, that is right, I now sound like a ten year old having a temper tantrum, I brought out how it's not fair.  :)  But, seriously, what's the point of working hard if I'm not going to see results?
