I have such respect for anyone who is comfy enough with their body, no matter the shape and/or size, to proudly proclaim their "real" weight. I, however, am not one of those people. (Maybe I can be one day.)
But, after gaining only 7 lbs with Jeb, the vast majority in the last 2 weeks of the pregnancy, I was curious to see where weigh in at my 6 week doctor's appointment. I've struggled to not sneak a peek at the bathroom scale in the last few weeks, but I decided I would be much happier if I just waited until I was at the doctor. As of today, I've lost all of my Jeb weight and I'm down 32 lbs from my pre-Jeb weight. If only I could lose that much weight every six weeks, I'd be to my goal weight in no time. Alas, I'm not willing to go through another 9 months of pregnancy for that.
In all honestly, I've tried to eat healthier, but that hasn't happened nearly as much as I've wanted. I think now that our family is getting into an actual routine, that should be something I can stick to a little easier.
First things first. I must stop drinking the fabulous, homemade sweet tea that keeps finding its way into my fridge. I gave up caffeine, but once Jeb arrived, that went out the window. And, can I just tell you that homemade, ice cold sweet tea tastes so. darn. good. Yes, I know, I could just replace the sugar with Splenda or something similar. That is just fine, but let's be honest. It just isn't the same. So, for the next 30 days, I will limit myself to water, milk and coffee. At first, I considered water and milk, but since I'm going back to work in less than 2 weeks, I had to add coffee back in but I can do sugar free in that.
