Weight Loss Update

Well, it's been about 2 1/2 months since our little miracle was born. I am LOVING every minute of being her mommy. It is truly a dream come true.

I don't, however, love that extra 19.5 pounds that's hanging around. haha But it was totally worth it, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat!!

I've been working out 3 times a week. I do cardio and also lift weights. I try to drink plenty of water, and I try not to eat anything after supper except fruit. And it is ever so slowly coming off. I have lost 4 pounds in a little over a month.

Plenty of people told me that the weight would melt away since I'm nursing, but that has not been the case for me. My Dr. actually told me that a lot of women don't lose a lot of weight when nursing because their appetite is so increased. I definitely have a strong appetite!

I honestly don't really mind that I've only lost 4 pounds, though. As long as I am heading in the right direction, that's the most important thing! So I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing - eating sensibly and working out.

I also want to post this darling website that I found: If you need your day brightened and want to smile for a few minutes, then look at these ADORABLE little animals on here!! I spent way too much time last night laughing and oohing and aahing over them!!

I hope you all have a GREAT weekend!!!

Birdie - You look great! Just keep up the good work and you will see the results you are looking for soon. Remember, it took 9 months for your body to change so it will take time for it to go back...
Love you!

Hi Birdie! I've had the same experience with my weight loss... SLOW! But, as you said - at least I'm heading in the right direction. Maybe we can cheer each other on! :-)

So happy to hear you are doing so well!
