-Later that weekend, we went to a birthday party for our friends whose daughter just turned one. I can't believe she's so big already! Love birthday parties at parks...so much fun!
(I really want to convince her momma to let me do a full on cake smash photo session with her!)
Payton's expression in this one cracked me up!
-Our garden is coming together really well despite battling earwigs and snails. We harvested our first crop yesterday--radishes. They are huge.
- I have a family photo shoot this afternoon. I am nervous! I always am before photo shoots--it's like presentations at school.
- I think I'm just about ready to drop another pants size, which is awesome. HOWEVER, I cannot seem to actually lose any weight, which is weird because I'm definitely getting smaller. And its irritating because I have to go into the doctor here in a couple weeks, and I'm dreading it, because he's going to just look at the scale, and we're going to have the following conversation, which plays over and over in my head:
Dr: Meredith, you weigh the same now as you did at your six week postpartum appointment.
Me: I know, but I've been running three to five days a week, and I've dropped three pants sizes.
Dr: But by your BMI, you are considered obese. We need to get your BMI lower.
Me: I just don't know what else to do--I'm eating healthily, not tons of junk. Watching portions. I'm exercising three to five days a week.
And then the doctor will give me the side eye, because if I'm doing that, I SHOULD be losing weight, but I am not. So he is not going to believe me, even though it's true.
Can I say again how people say, "Oh, if you breastfeed, the weight will just melt right off!" are liars. Because I cannot seem to lose a pound.
