Day 21 - Focusing on weight

One thing I've fretted about since early in the pregnancy has been my weight. Am I gaining too much? Not enough?

Now I'm fretting about losing weight.

Overall I gained about 35 pounds during the pregnancy. At my doctor's appointment, they weighed me. I'm still 15 pounds more than I was BP (before pregnancy.) I don't think that's too bad, considering I can't really exercise and I don't want to diet while I'm breastfeeding Little Elvis.

I'm hoping that the weather will warm up and I'll be able to walk at least 3 or 4 times a week pretty soon.

I must admit, I'm tired of sweatpants. I'll be glad to at least get into my "fat" jeans soon.

WEight is such a personal thing but for me I found that right away I lost a large portion of weight and then held on to 10ish pounds until around 4 months. At least that is how it was with my son and it seems to be that way this time as I still have 10 pounds to go. I gained 37ish with both kids. Breastfeeding helps and once you start getting more active. I am back running and imagine (hope) that the rest will come off soon. I did end up skinner after I had my son then before but I got pregnant when he was 7 months so I am not sure what I would have been like a year after?? Anyway, it is a process. 9 months up...........9 months down. Sounds like you are doing great!

Thanks Ashley. I often hear people say you won't lose the baby weight or that it's super hard. I'm glad to hear that it's not that way for everyone. I just can't wait to start doing something active...
