I hired a personal trainer

I'm scared shitless.   I have never paid anyone or organization to help me lose weight before.  But I am so far gone physically... That this seems like the best option.  We'll see after the first session.  I bought 20!!!!  and so have three months in which to use them.  I'll report back when I get home.  Just tossing my fear onto the internets in hopes that it makes it less.

He'll be measuring my body fat with skin calipers!

Wow, good luck! I would be scared of the calipers too .. You can do it! Honestly, though, I am too scared to get a personal trainer so you are way ahead of me!

So Impressed that you are getting help. You're an incredibly strong and smart lady, just remember to be kind to yourself. I gained 65 lbs with pregnancy, it took almost 2 years to get back down to pre- preggo weight. And no surprise to me it coincided with the Bean finally sleeping through the night. Things that helped: baby wearing, and juicing daily. You're definitely in the right direction, but don't be too harsh on how quickly or not the weight goes: the old adage of 9 months up 9 months down definitely holds ... Weight?
