I've been seeing this one go around the internet for a couple of weeks now. When you get tagged, you need to take a photo of yourself right that minute, with no pausing to make yourself pretty, and preferably with a webcam so it looks uber-crappy. Susanne got me today. If I had read her blog later in the day I would have looked more presentable, as I was expecting company.

As it was, I had not been up for very long at this point in the day. I had put a load of baby clothes in the wash, bathed and dressed the baby, fed him, and was PUMPING.

Yup. I spared you that much. There is such a thing as oversharing, even for me.

So, that's what I look like first thing in the morning - no makeup, hair pulled back, just in my nursing tank and pj pants. SO pretty, I tell ya.
BUT - here's the positive spin - look how thin my face has gotten. I hadn't weighed myself in a few weeks, so I got on the scale this morning. I'm down another three pounds to 178.5. I know that seems really heavy to all you skinny minnies out there but that's the first time I've seen my scale dip below 180 in over three years. I found an old Weight Watchers membership card from the beginning of 1997 in one of my handbags and it said I weighed 184.5 after doing it for six weeks! So, you can see how this is super exciting for me, especially since I just had a baby less than six months ago.
Not exciting - running to Safeway and having my crack exposed because my pants kept falling down. I need to remember not to wear jeans out of the house right now.

Way to go on the weight loss. :)
I don't blame you for being excited. I would be excited too if I could figure out a way to get MY scale to move in a downward position! LOL - breastfeeding isn't exactly an option for me at this point though. :)
