My fuzzy body

Without really trying I lost a lot of weight this past few months. I had my second child in December and exclusively breastfed for the first six months. I baked a lot with my elder son, age 3, so after regaining my pre-pre- pregnancy weight it was coming off slowly.

When my son was about 7 months work rang and asked if I could come back early. One of my colleagues was out for the rest of the year and they needed a Science specialist to teach his classes. So I was back to work... ...
Without really trying I lost a lot of weight this past few months. I had my second child in December and exclusively breastfed for the first six months. I baked a lot with my elder son, age 3, so after regaining my pre-pre- pregnancy weight it was coming off slowly.

When my son was about 7 months work rang and asked if I could come back early. One of my colleagues was out for the rest of the year and they needed a Science specialist to teach his classes. So I was back to work...

Teaching meant I stopped baking so much, I didn't have the time. I was on my feet a lot doing rounds of the classroom helping students. Additionally I was eating well, because I was taking lunches, and still breast feeding, pumping twice a day for milk to send to preschool.

I'm now the lowest weight I have been since October 2008, which was the lowest I had been in my adult life. I've dropped down to a NZ size 12 on the pants and it's great. I'm planning to stay here so back to sporadic Sparking to keep me on track.

Thanks so much for your comment on my post about my month-long plateau. I responded on the wall, but in case you don't see it, I just wanted to let you know that you helped change the way I think about it. You're right - my body is just adapting and this takes time!! So thank you so much. I feel much better about it all! :)
