Embracing the new me…

Nothing that takes work comes easy especially when it comes to weight loss. It’s been eight weeks since I gave birth and I’ve been trying to lose the extra 25 lbs I gained.  It’s frustrating not seeing the weight come off and quickly as I had hoped but I am staying positive.  In the meantime, I am embracing the new me, embracing my new curves.  I was feeling down and completely disgusted with myself until I talked myself out of it.  I was being ridiculous, the body changes with a pregnancy and I have to accept it. I shouldn’t be complaining considering that I had a great pregnancy and my total weight gain wasn’t as bad as some of my friends that averaged a weight gain of 60-80 lbs everyone is different.  I only gained 40 lbs and now only 25 lbs from my postpartum weight.  I will continue to eat clean and exercise until I see the results I want.  Besides, it did take nine months. 😉

I’m not going to lie, it’s also been very depressing not having anything to wear.  Yes, I’ve said it, “I have nothing to wear!”  I sound like a typical woman standing in front of a closet lined with clothes from one end to the other.  The problem is that I don’t have a closet full of multiple sizes, I don’t believe in that anymore.  At one point in my life, I use to have several sizes considering my yoyo weight loss/gain and I never worried because I always had something to wear but one day I changed all that and I cleaned house.  I didn’t want to fall back into that bad habit.  Once I lost the weight, I wanted to keep it off and I did. Well until now, that I have a little extra. ::wink::

Wearing clothes that fit right makes all the difference so I went out and bought a few outfits in the meantime considering my mood.  Needless to say, my shopping day was depressing but much-needed.  Despite the larger size, I feel great.  I’m embracing my new curves and embracing the new woman I see standing in the mirror.  It’s been such a wonderful experience so far and every time I look into my beautiful baby boys eyes I fall in love all over again.  At the end of the day, it’s just excess weight because I hold the most important gift in my arms everyday and for that, I am truly blessed and grateful.

What’s new with me…

Where do I begin? It’s been so long since my last login that it took several tries before I could actually log in. (Yikes)  I swear, I have a million and one thoughts running through my head.  It’s a mad house. LOL

What’s new with me? Well… I have the best news to share.  I became a MOTHER.

I can’t explain how scary, wonderful, and amazing this feeling is — I’m a mom. There are no words and if you’re a mother, you know exactly what I mean. Despite it all, (sleepless nights, dirty diapers, feeding schedule etc…) I wouldn’t change it for the world and I would go through my pregnancy all over again. I am so happy and in love with my son.

I gave birth to a beautiful and handsome baby boy on January 9th 2014.  His name is Jace Y. Hernandez.  Isn’t he just adorable.  He is mine, all mine. 😉

JaceHe is now almost two months old, time is flying by (father time, please slow down) I don’t want too miss a single second.  Here is my little big guy now, so handsome.

To my mother, YOU WERE RIGHT! It’s an amazing, incredible, and indescribable feeling and now I know. Thank you for being my support.  I love you very much.

Looking forward to a new journey and adventure with my son.  Let’s Go!

Until next time.. Ciao
