I realize that is a depressing sounding title but it's not as bad as it sounds!

I have spent the last two years trying to lose the last ten pounds from having Reid. I feel like I have tried just about everything including everything I tried in the past that worked for me before. And of course, not having results, I usually give up on things after about 3 months of trying something. The only thing I haven't tried is going back on the pill, because honestly I think that helped a lot after I had Ben!

So I am currently hovering somewhere around 143 lbs and have been here for a good two years. My BMI is in the healthy range (kind of at the high end but still "normal") and I really don't mind the way I look, although I do still wish I could get back to where I was after all the other kids, hovering at around 133 lbs. I don't have any desire to do a rigorous exercise program nor do I want to do some crazy diet. I try to keep my portions small and try not to eat after supper (but am not always successful).

Lately I have just found myself caring less and less about losing weight.... and I am wondering if I am at the point where I just accept myself the way I am and quit trying things (other than keeping my eating habits reasonable). No matter what I do, my body just seems to stay at this weight. I'm not fat, I'm not unhealthy, so I guess this isn't so bad, is it?

Since this is the Yummy Mommmies section, you get carrots if you made it this far. LOL

I completely understand why you would just want to accept the weight that you are at. I think that it's more than reasonable to just enjoy and love that you are in a healthy weight range.
