So I missed a week - but I have a good excuse - MJ was born last Friday!!! After coming home from the hospital I weighed myself and was shocked to see I weighed more then when I went in to have her (299.5 lbs) but I was extremely swollen and hadn't had a bowl movement since having her so it was to be expected I guess.
So anywho, fast forward to now and I get on the scale and am very pleased to see 282 lbs looking back at me. I had been weighing myself everyday and was glad to see weight loss everyday as the swelling started to subside and (TMI) I had a bowl movement!
(taken today w/my cell phone - look at how tiny MJ looks)
I am still slightly swollen but my boobs are bigger then my belly and I am feeling tons better. I wonder what my real weight will be once the swelling goes down and my body is back to somewhat normal.
Having a baby sure is a great way to lose some of that extra weight (haha). I am actually very proud of how I maintained my weight and even lost some weight during my pregnancy. I am hoping that the rest of my weight comes off now that I have the good habits already established and will help the weight fall the rest of the way off.
Below is my progress - I am sure that soon I will hit my goal (at least I hope so!).
Current Weight: 282 pounds
Weight loss/gain: - 13.5 pounds
Total Weight loss: 23 pounds
Weight still to lose: 45 pounds to go
