The beginning of my change.

I hate my body. A lot. My post-baby body is depressing, and I can't even begin to fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes. Adalyn is almost 4 months old, and I'm still 25lbs heavier than when we conceived her.

I have to change something.

I'm fairly certain that my body is holding onto fat to make breastmilk, because I do eat healthy! I'm supposed to actually eat 500 extra calories to keep up my supply. But the weight just isn't coming off.

I must confess that I love Coca Cola. More like obsessed. I can't stand the thoughts of eating a meal without a coke. I just can't. But I'm giving them up starting tomorrow, because this weight HAS to come off. My husband comes home in 4 months, and we go on our cruise in 8. This mama has to look good :)

So I've been inspired by a wonderful fellow AF wife, and i have decided to start the Couch to 5k program. Guys, I *hate* to run. You have no idea. I might just die out there. Just maybe. I would rather starve than run, but no amount of Lean Cuisines seems to be doing the trick. So tomorrow? I'm leaving my daughter with my mom and starting my journey.

I don't have a specific goal, but I'd like to be 130. I'm currently 159. I have to do this, guys. Not only do I want to be healthy for my spouse & daughter, but I really don't want to have t buy a whole new wardrobe :)

I'll letcha know how I make it tomorrow! Gulp.
