I gained a lot of weight over the past month with all the holiday festivities and my trip to New Orleans (the food there is just too delicious!). I only took one pair of jeans to New Orleans (I’m a light packer), and I quickly realized that they didn’t fit after my first big meal. I had to use a trick that Mrs. Butterfly taught me when she was pregnant – you loop a hair elastic through the buttonhole and wrap it around the button. That gives you at least an extra inch of breathing room!
With the new year and new resolutions, I’ve drastically changed my diet and am trying to lose weight the healthy way. I’m eating lots of chicken, fish, and veggies, drinking obscene amounts of room temperature lemon water (I’ve heard that room temperature water is somehow better for you), and I’ve completely cut out alcohol (my biggest vice). I’ve already lost 4 pounds! I’ve been exercising 3-4 times a week for the past 7 months, but I didn’t drop a single pound until I finally changed my diet.
There has been one positive benefit from gaining weight however — my boobs got bigger! But now that I’m on this healthy path to losing weight, is there any way to lose the weight but keep the boobs?! Is it truly the first place to go, and is there anything I can do to prevent it?!
