So I have posted before but I found this picture of my son Nicholas' baptism and it struck me what a difference had occurred between the birth of one baby and another.

When Nicholas was born I just kept eating like I always had and used his birth as an excuse to move less and eat more. He kept me up at night and that meant I didn't feel like making dinner and I certainly didn't feel like going through the trouble of a healthy dinner. I made these choices. The truth is I could have forced myself to be better, I know now I had it in me. I was younger, I was healthier, and I had one less toddler than I had when Donovan was born but I chose to cling to my excuses rather than get up and get the job done.

When Donovan was born I was sick of being overweight. I was sick of my own excuses. I was sick of being too tired to play with Nicholas. I made a whole host of new choices and the pictures show the difference between the 2. Most of you have read my story but for anyone who is interested in the how and how long I put it in here:

Now for the part where I get to show pictures of my adorable babies in their adorable baptism outfit. Yes they are wearing the same one and yes my hubby is wearing the same tie.

218 maybe more... I avoided the scale

120 I'm 118 now but I don't think the 2lb difference is all that noticeable

Yes he has! He is down about 40lbs. I make his lunch and dinner so I have been gradually cutting his calories.

Great job! Your son is adorable and I loooove your hair. How did you get those waves?

You use a styling mousse and heat protector while its wet, then dry it. Then twist random pieces around the curling iron without using the pinchy part (careful or you will burn your fingers). You do the ones on top close to the scalp and smaller and the ones underneath you grab larger pieces and only twist them lower down so that you don't end up with 80s big hair. :-)
