A Fresh Start

Friday, May 29, 2009

It's been 3 weeks since my daughter was born, and while I haven't been cleared to do any strenuous exercises, I have been doing a little bit of walking now and then. I had to see my family doctor today to discuss some health issues and while I was there, I was forced to face the dreaded scale. I stepped on, reminding the nurse to deduct for my shoes (I don't think she did)...and the number that came up shocked me. I knew I hadn't gained much during the pregnancy, in fact I had lost more overall than I gain, but I still feared that number...219.2lbs. I don't know why but I had expected a much higher number to show up. I was relieved to think that I only had less than 20lbs to lose before I reached my first goal of 200lbs. Starting at square one, I know I will lose this weight once and for all, and my big goal is to be close to it by Christmas. Wish me luck!

    Congratuations on two fronts: your new baby and having gained less than you feared! It looks like you are on the right track for staying as focussed on your own health as you are your baby's health. Great job! emoticon

    You can do it Loni, especially running around taking care of the 2 older ones and that new sweet baby. With you as leader of NYNY and as soon as you get clearance from your Dr. You'll lose those 20 pounds in a flash. I'm so glad your back and leading our group again.
    I have a suggestion: Since you are on the Leaders Social Team, post there and maybe some of them were on our team before and will welcome the opportunity to come back...just a suggestion.
