I loved when people told me this even though I knew it wasn't true. My baby weighed 7 lbs 11 ozs, not 45.5 lbs. Yup, my grand weight baby gain total is 45.5 lbs. When I got home from the hospital, I weighed myself and I had lost 17 lbs. I'm not sure if that was the hardest or easiest 17 lbs lost but it sure was the quickest! Since this weekend, I'm down another 3 lbs but I still have a ways to go. I also gained 4 lbs in Mexico that I didn't count as a my baby weight gain so really I want to lose a total of 49.5 lbs. Wow that sounds like a lot! Right now I'm not trying to lose weight but I'm not going to eat "for two" anymore. I'm going to try to make healthy eating decisions and when I think the time is right, I'll get more serious about losing weight. Right now I need to focus on getting sleep, loving Charlie and giving Charlie the food he needs to grow to be a big boy.
This is the last picture Rob took of me, it was taken on Christmas morning:
The picture is a little dark, but I took this a couple days ago:
