I went from a size 8 man dress to a size 2 man dress in 8 weeks. Now I don't usually wear man dresses because man dresses are women dresses disguised as real dresses I call man dresses. However, I love saying I am a size 2 because it's a lot smaller than saying I am a size 32 waist. Besides there was a huge July 4th sale so I was just trying different things on. Anyway, everyone and their mother wants to lose weight including my mother. There is a formula that is proven to lose weight. Diet and Exercise. I truly miss those days when I could go to McDonald's and supersize everything but portion control is a must and McD's is a must not. We also know that sitting on the couch watching the house wives of Jersey is probably not going to help you lose weight or gain intelligence so exercise is a must too. Here are a my 5 daddy ways to lose some extra weight.
1) Carry your child in a carrier and not in a stroller.
My daughter is 15lbs plus all of the bags. That means I have an extra 20lbs on me when I go out... and now that it's summer I go out as much as I can. Remember how long winter felt...???
2) Eat the same portion as your child.
I find that if I eat around the size of what Jaxon is eating (or should eat) I can control my portion.
3) Eat at the same speed as your child.
Jaxon takes 45 minutes to eat 1 grape. Imagine how much time it would take to eat 6. Honestly though if I control my speed then eating every 2 to 3 hours doesn't seem so bad.
4) Have a cup of coffee during the afternoon.
Coffee makes me skip a hunger moment during the day plus it gives me the push I need to want to still be a parent.
This is easy. After a long day with 2 kids I tend to go to bed early than I want to. It helps with forgetting hunger because I am too tired to think about food. Being too tired to eat is genius. They need to put that in a bottle.
I was 186 when Anjali was born. I now weigh 171. Thanks kids.
