Weigh In

I'm only 12 days postpartum, but I stepped on the scale just to see where things were at.

I've lost 15 pounds, and have 25 more to go. Yep, I ended up gaining a whopping 40 pounds; double what I've ever gained before.  I'm back to 170 now, and actually don't feel as fat and frumpy as I thought I would. 

I think I may lose maybe 5 pounds more from water weight, and then I'll have to work to get the rest off.  I'm not planning on doing or starting anything weight-loss wise anytime soon.  My main focus right now is making sure I have enough milk for Miss Nora.  So far, so good on that front.  I do plan to take walks with my family; we've done it a few times since we've been home and it's a nice, easy workout. 

I also plan to focus on choosing healthy, whole foods for the most part.  It's weird cuz during the day I forget to eat; I just don't feel hungry.  And then in the evening it suddenly hits me BAM and I'm STARVING.  So I am working on eating throughout the day, and making the nutrition in those meals count.

I've also been doing well with drinking water, mostly just because I get so thirsty while nursing.

So anyway, that's where I'm at for now.  I do plan to get back to weight loss blogging, but not quite yet. :)

If you'd like to see more pictures of Nora, I posted some on my other blog.

I hope you're all well! Thanks for the comments; it's nice to know people are reading. :)

  1. Whoo hoo for you! Way to go with the weigh and go easy while you can it will come off. Remember that it took 9 months to go on so 9 months to come off.
    Just took a look at the other blog, she is a real beauty. I wonder if she will have red hair.
