Weight Loss Wednesday


Yesterday was a good weigh in. I was down a little over a pound, which makes for 8 pounds total. Even better than the pound was the fact that I was wearing pants with a zipper. You don't realize how miraculous zippers are until forced to wear ill fitting, elastic front maternity pants. It's a good thing that babies are worth the sacrifice. I was joined at the meeting by my friend Debbie. Let me just take a moment to say that if I looked like Debbie, I would not be worried about my weight. She looks fabulous after 3 kids. I am fairly certain she only has 5 pounds to lose. Any more than that, and she'll be too thin! But that's the thing about weight loss. It's personal. Once we feel good inside and out, we're done. And where that is for me is different than where that is for you. I just know that for me, I still have a ways to go.

Good for you! Madison is finally old enough to go to the gym, HURRAY!!! Now, I just have to get rid of the last tub of ice cream left over from when my Dad was here!!! Then I'll start detailing my weight loss!!

You're too kind...wish it were only five... babies are soooo worth it (and the lack of sleep too).

Congrats on that zipper. A personal milestone for me is when the patns with a side zipper are working.

Woo Hoo! You go, girl. My husband and I started a diet on Monday. He has lost 6 pounds already. I have probably lost one pound, which is probably just water weight anyway.

Good job with the weight loss. I'm in the same boat, except my baby is 3 yrs. old.
