Weekly Weigh-in: Post Pardum Edition

Since I realize this information has probably been keeping you up at night, I figured it was time to update you on the status of my weight gain.

Or in this case, weight loss.

2weeks and 2 days ago, I delivered our baby girl, and 2 weeks and 2 days ago, I weighed myself before going to the hospital.

That morning I weighed in at 179.6 lbs.

Exactly 41.2 lbs. more than my pre-prego weight.

Not too shabby.

And since I totally over-document this crap, one week later I weighed in at 169.6 lbs.

But that was before my milk came in.

Right now, I am sitting at 171.6.

2 lbs. of which I am totally blaming on milk.


You know how they say you totally can lose all your weight from breastfeeding? Doesn't work.

At least not for me.

Which means I am probably stuck at this weight until I can start exercising again in another 4 weeks.

And even then, my weightloss will be slow because it won't be based on diet just exercise.

For reference sake, after I had little man, I was a size 18 for the first 4 months.

Today I am wearing a size 14.

All things considered I am much farther ahead this time than I was last time.

But I'm still a little (read: a lot) annoyed at how slow this process is for me and how easy it is for other people.

For now, I won't post any before or after pics, mostly because last time I refused to allow anyone to take my picture for 6 months.

All things considered, at least I'm ahead of that curve...

It's totally worth it! But 1) I'm so excited that I weigh less than you. 2) We can do this together now. And I have a head start which means I can totally cheat.
3) I know you'll do it because you have uber-discipline that I've never seen. Love you!
