Casualties of Working from Home: My Waistline

The fact that I’ve been working in sweats and lounge pants about 6 feet from my fridge for the past 8 months and the fact that I gained 5 pounds during the holidays is wreaking havoc on my fashionable return to the office (at least as far as pants go). It’s also motivated me to lose that 5 pounds! I’ve packed my walkin’ shoes for lunch.

    So now I feel guilty because I’m blog-surfing when I should be treadmilling! Good luck w/those 5 pounds. I need to drop about 15 to fit into some of my clothes. Sigh.

    Hi, came from mommy-brain and R*belle’s site. I feel ya on the weight thing. Being home more is chaos on the ol’ waistline (never mind the hips and thighs). My goal is to lose some of this baby fat.

    Can I still call it that? Please tell me I can. :0)

    Oh, hon! I will be packing my walking shoes this week, too! And really, it’s a beautiful thing that your co-workers don’t need hourly diaper sniffs and bottom pats. In fact, if you want your transition back to work without incident, be sure to drop some of those habits before you end up in some harrassment sensitivity seminar.

    Back to the weight…Maybe we can keep each other motivated. Or at least if you still post about this once in a while, I won’t feel so frustrated battling this out her by myself in CA.

    It’s hard to have any change in routine and stick to a diet. I’m about to change jobs and I’m nervous about what it will do to my weight. I lost 25 pounds last year and I don’t want it to come back! Good luck with those last 5 – those can be the toughest!
