One thing I have learned is that baby fat is different from man fat. Most men who have fat can loose it by simply eating some fruit and drinking more water. They might have to do a few crunches too. Women who have given birth, either have had or still do have baby fat. Getting rid of baby fat takes serious discipline, but what you have to do is fairly simple. You can either keep eating all of those yummy things you craved during pregnancy that you just can't seem to stop craving and you can work out like crazy to try and compensate. Or you can stop eating all of that yummy stuff and work out a little less crazy to get rid of the baby fat. Either way, we have to work out. Working out isn't always fun and eating right is hard so I am going to dedicate every Monday for the next 5 months to KILL THE FAT. It's my New Years resolution, my motto, and my main goal. I plan to loose 20 pounds by April 9, 2009. That is 4 pounds a month. Easy-peasy. Do you want to loose 20 pounds too? Then join me every Monday for a special post about KILLING THE FAT on our bodies and getting healthier, happier, and a little lighter while we're at it. You won't want to miss it and it will taste good too!

I'm in!! We have to treat ourselves to a reward if we do it by april. What should we DO??? Love the idea. I'm so with Lucy, those Gummy Bears have been my silly vice too, among others.

First I'll say I find it hard to believe, from looking at pictures of you, that you feel you need to lose 20 lbs. You look great.

But I know what you mean about the baby fat. With my first it was a just over 2 years before I made pre-baby weight. It's just slightly better with my second. I have 5 lbs to go. My husband has promised me a shopping trip if I do it by valentines day, so there's my motivation.

Good luck....or I should say, good will power to you!

I'm wondering WHERE you will find 20 pounds to lose.... you are tiny! I think you are amazing and this is a cool challenge. I just wolfed down a brownie and plan to run 3 miles later.... you're right, I will just "break even" on the health thing. LOL I'm super behind you and will try my best to get better with you!! I'm pretty disciplined, except when I sneak a bad treat.
