I added two little bar graphs to the right hand column of my blog.
See 'em? Aren't they pretty?
The first shows our progress on paying off our debt ($7000 in 3 1/2 months, thank you very much!). Hopefully we'll be able to throw another huge chunk at that when the rest of our tax return is paid out.
The second is my progress -or current lack of progress- in losing the weight from this last pregnancy. For me, the real benchmark will be when I can once again fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes, but the scale is a good reference point in the mean time. I thought about posting before and after pictures, but I don't think I can bear to take the "before" shot.
Why is it that, although the baby grows in my stomach (okay, I know it's not my actual stomach, you know what I mean) it's my thighs and hips that take the brunt of the weight gain?
Although it's going to feel AMAZING to have our debt paid off, I might be more excited to fit into my "skinny clothes" again.
