I had my daughter a year ago and I'm having a really hard time losing the baby fat - I have 30 extra pounds that I'm still harboring. It was a very difficult year (due to other things) and I was taking care of her full time and didn't have any time to hit to gym to try and lose it!
I heard there's a window of time that it's the easiest to lose that extra weight, but I have faaaaaaaaaar surpassed it!
I have a hard time getting motivated to go to the gym and eat better because don't see results right away so I get discouraged.
I have a 16.2 TB and I get REALLY self conscious when I ride because I feel like I'm too "heavy" for him. Or when he is lazy and not moving well I think it's because of me. I don't know if I'm over reacting and being crazy or if this really has an affect on him.
And it's funny, despite the fact I have to have a certain waist measurement for work (I am exceeding it at the moment, however ) my biggest motivation to lose it is for riding!
I'm not really asking anything in particular here, but does any one else feel this way? Similar experience? Am I really too fat for my horse? I am almost 5'9" and weigh about 179...
