Weight Loss

I wasn't going to weigh myself for a while because I didn't want to be disappointed. It was a good plan because today I went to the DR. and they weighed me. And I was disappointed.

I've lost 24 pounds and I now weigh 160. I guess I just thought I'd have lost more by now because so much of that was baby, placenta, water, etc.  I felt kind of bad in the car on the way home and cried for a few minutes. I have over 30 pounds left to loose before I am close to where I was before. 

I know it's going to take a lot of work, especially with such little sleep and time to work out, which is how, for the most part, I maintained my weight before. Luke was telling me he saw an interview with Kendra last night, she also gained 60 pounds and said she lost it all mostly by dieting and walking because there was not time to do a lot of working out.

Today we went to the store and I was stocking up on all kinds of healthy things to eat and I realized I had decided to try no dairy for a few weeks to see if it makes Olive less gassy. I had to put back a lot of the food I had been planning to eat.

Well, here we go... tiny jeans, will I ever see you again?

  1. Drink a ton of water... keep up with the breast feeding... wear Olive at times when needed... walk around with her... It takes time... but the weight will fall off! I lost a nice chunk fast... and then my weight loss slowed to a crawl... but all of a sudden... when Levi was around 3 months the weight loss picked up. Remember your body is totally out of wack!
