Operation:Cute One

Ok, those of you who don't know me in real life will, I hope, be able to take this post with a grain of salt...
You see, I'm the cute one in the relationship, or at least I like to think so. Don't get me wrong, my husband's hott but when I got pregnant with the boy, it was Joshua and not I who kept the pregnancy weight. He blames it on the fact that I was able to nurse and shed the pounds pretty quickly...an excuse I don't let him get away with too often-especially since on two separate occasions, the boy tried to nurse from Joshua and "latched" on...HILARIOUS (from my perspective)! Picture it: they were both sound asleep and Joshua was shirtless when apparently the boy woke for a night nursing and then out of nowhere all I heard was "YOU LITTLE SH**"...coming from a man who rarely if ever curses. But I digress, this is supposed to be about me being the cute one...when Joshua and I finally agreed upon his enlistment into military, he started to work out and most of his preggie weight just disappeared in that annoying way only a man can manage. His arms and shoulders built up first and though you couldn't see them, there was a 6 pack just under the surface. Now, my love's at BCT and he has informed me that the 6 pack is in full view and yes, he has that ever allusive V...you know the one I mean...the one they had when while dating but somewhere between "I do" and returning from the honeymoon, it disappears never to be seen again.
I say all this not just to brag on Joshua (although I am pretty proud) but also because I'm worried...my 6 pack has never really existed...and since the boy changed everything, even flat (at least in my tummy area) has been a challenge so my mission while Joshua's gone is to get back to what I looked like when we were dating, or as close as this post-baby body can...mission codename: Operation:Cute One

You are the cute one, I can say it ;) And most women do not naturally have six packs. Even Angelina Jolie has said that, like in the Lara Croft movies, when her stomach was exposed, they went back and CGI'd abs on her. And she's about the most buff female I can think of. But anyway, I know what you mean. I think SoldierMan has lost 30 pounds since November. I've gained about 10. Boo.

I have had the HARDEST time with my after baby weight. I feel so yucky about it. But, my husband, gained it with me, and he still has his too. Lol. :)
