I know this may sound silly and maybe everyone will think I just need to drag my lazy butt to a gym, but I am terrified of gaining weight. I am constantly squeezing the fat in front of my belly.

I have a surgery on my hand which is going to make it near impossible to pump, so I figure it’s a good time to be finished. I’ve blogged about my breastfeeding difficulties.
