15.8 lbs in one week!

Monday, November 28, 2011

One day, actually. Not much fat, though:

2.5 lbs placenta
2.5 lbs amniotic fluid
8.3 lbs of baby (maybe 1.5 lbs of fat? emoticon )
plus assorted excess blood volume and who knows what else.

Though I suppose it does represent fat/body mass lost over the past 8 months or so, as I ended this pregnancy 5 lbs lower than I started it, so it's still nice. And puts me within 5 lbs of what my next big goal was before I got pregnant -- it will be fun to hit a serious goal within a few weeks of getting rolling (assuming I don't gain weight during the next few weeks).

And now finally getting close to getting back on the ball! I won't actually be tracking my food or even trying to minimize it for another few weeks yet, until nursing is well established. But I will not be trying to avoid weight loss either.
