baby fat is a bitch. I've got what seems to be a permanent layer of nice flabby flab all around my midsection. I feel like I've done all I can to get rid of it - you know, breastfeeding, carrying the baby around - and it's still here! should I just suck it up and buy a new set of pilates dvds? mine got lost somewhere in the move and I blame part of my lack of weight loss on that. another part of it might be all the chocolate that somehow finds it's way into my mouth.
all that is fine and dandy, though, because I think the solution, instead of trying to get rid of the fat by exercising or eating well, is to start buying bigger clothes. I mean, last summer, I was rocking the maternity look (yoga pants and big tshirts), so all the summery clothes I have are actually two or more years out of date! so I need to buy new clothes anyway. I'll just get them in the next size up. I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner. what a great idea.
so, it turns out that there's going to be some competing for my time tonight. tv-wise, that is. looks like american idol and the amazing race are going to overlap between 9 and 930. don't worry - I'll try to deal with it calmly and rationally.
