It is really going slow loosing the weight because I'm nursing and some days I really have to push hard to do anything. I know it's best for the babe but some days I feel very selfish and just want this weight OFF and think about how nice it will be when I quit!
I should be glad I'm actually loosing this time around, I normally gain 5-10 lbs while nursing. I'm so hungry all the time. So the fact I'm loosing should be great motivation. Even if it IS taking forever to loose 1 lbs. I'm ok with loosing slowly, but why can't it be the 1-2 lbs a week that's recommended. It's more like .5 lbs a week. I've been doing this hard since Christmas and only lost 7 lbs. I get a low weight and the next day I jump up a lb and it takes me 4-5 days to get back down to the low weight. I just don't understand and get very frustrated! And I'm so tired!!!!! He still isn't sleeping thru the night, most night's I'm up 2-3x. So my body is tired, well, frankly, *I* am tired. very very tired!
But I think tonight I saw that maybe my legs look a little different. My clothes all still fit the same. And coming off of a birth 4 months ago it's hard to see what is baby-shape coming off and what is weight coming off. But my legs, they seemed like maybe they weren't as big as they used to be around my knees. That gives me a little motivation to get up and go tomorrow. Goodness knows I need the motivation some days!
