March 1st update

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Ok so I am a little late posting this. I decided to only weigh myself once a month because it stresses me out to much to see a bunch of fluctuating weights. So starting now I am not even looking at the scale until I do my monthly weigh-in. As of March 1st I am still 189.2 lbs, so I pretty much lost nothing weight wise. I did take pictures of myself on February 1st and again on March 1st to compare in the hopes that if I have one of these moments where no loss is noted or even gain weight I can see if their is a visible difference for myself. (** sorry won't share them because I am Muslim hope you understand**) There was definitely a difference in my pictures. So the weight must have shifted around somehow to different places I guess. My stomach was definitely flatter.

On another note I think I may need to have my thyroid checked since I not only just had a baby 10 months ago but also a pregnancy loss 2 months ago. I read that sometimes women can go hypothyroid after pregnancy so maybe that is why it's hard for me to lose weight?? I don't know but I am looking into it.

    Are you still breastfeeding? I found that I lost all my weight by eating healthy and excercising while breastfeeding. Unfortunately I gained most of it back when I stopped and went for hajj right after. I didn't really watch my food intake there.

    I have a 10 month as well and it is very difficult to take the weight off in postpartum for some ladies. I am still nursing as well and I am like you have been at it for 3 months and have only lost 8 pds. But I know once I stop nursing things will regulate as your body holds more water etc. Just don't fret. If you can see a difference then you are doing something right. emoticon
