I am feeling MUCH better about doing this all again.

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Somehow... I've lost quite a bit of weight in the past few days. I had a C-section on October 4th and since then I've lost more than 20lbs... yay water weight! So I went from my pregnancy weight of 290-295 (I can't remember exactly) down to 285.6 then weighed myself two days ago and was delighted to find I was down to 274.4 and today.... I'm at 268.8 I'm thinking that the past two days of dieting has helped me shed the extra water weight from the IV fluids and just pregnancy in general. And hopefully some real weight loss, too. Something about starting in the 260's and not the 280's is a huge weight off my shoulders. I'm still doing some research on exercise after a C-section... my doctor said I can judge for myself when the best time to start is. I don't know if that's a great idea... my first instinct when I got home from the hospital was to start doing laundry... So we shall see!

    It might be more than water weight. Glad you had a big drop in weight. Eat healthy and ease into exercises. Baby steps little Mommy. Take care!

    Thought these would help (from Sparkpeople's pregnancy-affiliate!)




    If you have the energy, everyone I know recommended light walking as a great starting point!
