Welcome to our third edition of the Baier (buy-er) Bonus! Weigh-ins are encouraging, but watching the inches disappear and the bodies shrink is the icing on the cake. (Nutrisystem cake that is) Monthly, Jeff and I will (reluctantly) model for our progress photos and I will also be posting how many inches we have lost. We are putting it all out there folks, no holds barred. After completing six months I will post comparison photos 🙂

If you are just tuning in – I (Rebekah) am chronicling our husband and wife Nutrisystem weight loss journey. My husband (Jeff) and I woke up one day and realized that being overweight was no longer an option.

Here are our obligatory before photos. I cringe as I look at them, how did we let ourselves get so unhealthy and large? But these photos are the fuel for my fire, I created a collage of these unflattering snapshots and put it on my computer desktop. As a daily reminder that I am making a change for good and nothing will stop me this time! Here’s to a healthy 2014!
Every day I am reminded that I have been so blessed to care for my two sweet and beautiful children. Liam adores his big sister, and Emry is so proud of her baby brother and has been such an incredible helper since we brought him home. These precious moments never cease to make my day – they remind me to slow down and enjoy the important things in life.
Between feedings, fussy moments, breakfast, lunch, and household tasks, I quite literally spent almost all day at shutterfly.com! It is quite addicting, and I must admit it was a lot of fun! I had coupon codes for 10 free baby announcements, 50 free 4×6 prints and a free 11-oz photo mug. Of course I had to pay shipping, but $17.66 was a very small fee to pay for hours of entertainment! It is perpetually difficult for me to make up my mind, so I spent the bulk of my day designing 10 different announcements so we can see them in person. The website was super easy to use and I cannot wait to receive my finished products in the mail! Now to check out Tiny Prints…. Wow, after reading this I realize that it doesn’t take much to please me these days, though I am sure many moms who have stayed up half the night with a 7-week old will
Liam caught his first little cold – as any of you with kids in school know, those pesky germs are shared at school like wildfire and in turn, shared at home! Regardless, a 6-week old with the sniffles is no fun. He was fussy, we were grouchy…you get the picture. Enter my two favorite products to date – the Moby Wrap and the NoseFrida. As you can see from our soundly sleeping Liam, he also agrees! After I figured out the initially fairly complicated wrap, we tucked Liam inside and he dozed off peacefully while Mommy “wore him” for over two hours, meanwhile his little snores rivaled those of his Daddy 🙂 Best investment ever? I think so! Coming in at a close second – the revolutionary NoseFrida. You all have seen those blue plastic nose “suckers” aka aspirators, right? Virtually worthless. After hours of online research and a recommendation from my pediatrician, I purchased the NoseFrida at a local
Starting to get a little cabin fever. Six days inside the house with nothing but nursing, eating, breast pumping, maybe a shower, repeat – it was time to get outside! Lovely brisk weather out today, I thought it might be a nice idea to get the family outdoors and go for a (short) walk. I am obviously still recovering from my 2nd cesarean and I am taking it very very slow. Definitely feeling the 9 year difference between baby #1 & #2! Baby Liam is 6 days old today and was so easy to snuggle up in his car seat. We got about half a block before Emry fought us to push the stroller. I was too tired and pain-filled to do my normal patient correction – “Emry, let’s go over this again, it’s so much nicer to say “Mommy, may I please push the stroller instead of just yanking the stroller away from me.” Instead I told her to
Unfortunately due to flu restrictions, Emry was not allowed to visit Liam in the hospital, so after four long days away from us, of course she was soooo excited to meet her baby brother! We surprised her by picking her up at school with baby in tow – she saw us pull in the drive and her excitement was electric! Biggest smile ever 🙂 She got to hold baby Liam as soon as we got home and after she washed her hands of course, darn flu season! It was a very sweet moment for all of us!
