I am soooo impatient. I know it. I look at my beautiful 3 week old baby. My third son. Thrilled that he is happy, healthy, gaining weight from my nursering him. But then I look in the mirror. My tummy is still a little pudgy and I am very forgiving of that and rational... knowing that with my other two it was month 3 before I was in my pre-preggo jeans. BUT then I look at my thighs... ugh. I carried my baby in my belly not my butt!! Duh. My doc says walking and light yoga for another 3 weeks. I have given birth twice before- I know the drill. But I want to get back into my turbo jam, I want to start lifting weights.
Well here I am.. weighing in at 137, after walking into the hospital right before giving birth @ 155. Hoping to get to 130 before Memorial Day- that would put me @ my 6 week post partum date... we will see...
