So I had my first postpartum checkup today. They weighed me. When I was still pregnant, I was 220. Today I weighed in at 198. ONE HUNDRED NINETY EIGHT! How is that!? I can't believe I hit under 200!
I am thrilled! and a little scared. I haven't seen under 200 in over a decade! Can I actually maintain this? Can I stay under 200? I don't know. Where do I go from here? Down, I guess! Wow!

Yes I'm babbling....done babbling now!

    Good For You! Isn't it nice when the surprises are positives!
You can keep it up but remember to be taking good care of yourself, resting as much as you can, eating well.
Girl you give me hope for at least getting down to my prepreg weight a little sooner after this little one is born! If I dropped below 200 in the first 6 weeks I might pass out but it would drive me to keep it up! emoticon

    Congrates that a great success! And of course you won't maintain it.... it will keep going down from here! Then when you get to your goal... you will maintain! Have faith!

    Congrats! Breastfeeding will do that, I've heard:) I sure hope I drop 20lbs off the bat hehe though, being 6'2" it'll take MUCH longer for me to get back to one-derland....
