I'm just going to go ahead and say it.
As of 10 days post-partum, I weighed less than when I got pregnant and was able to legitimately put on my pre-pregnancy jeans.
Ok...go ahead and hate. I mean, I totally would if it were someone else.
But let me just get through this because I don't normally brag about my body and for once, I'm totally excited about it.
Waaaaaay back before I was pregnant with Little G, I weighed 206lbs. Here's a picture of me the month before I got pregnant:
While pregnant with Little G, I gained over 40 lbs. He weighed 10 lbs, 5oz. Here's a picture of me the day before I gave birth:
I only ever lost around 30 lbs of my pregnancy weight with Little G...meaning that I started this pregnancy with Ladybug at 216lbs. Here is a picture of me exactly one day before I found out I was pregnant with Ladybug.
With Ladybug, I only gained 13 lbs. She weighed 10lbs, 4.8oz. Here's a picture of me 5 days before I gave birth:
So here we are. This is a picture of me taken last Sunday. (Ignore the mahem in the background, I seriously grabbed the iPhone and asked hubs to take a picture just so I could post it). I'm in my pre-pregnancy jeans that fit better than before I got pregnant, even though I still have a small bit of my pregnancy pooch left. My weight on that day was 212.
- I was eating better since most of what we eat during the summer comes from our CSA
- I was running around with Little G all summer, walking all over the place. Everywhere from the Children's Museum to various parks to chasing him around the beach, etc.
Anyway, even though I know it is totally obnoxious to post this (especially so close to after Thanksgiving), I really just wanted to share this small triumph in my life.
So, yay. Go me!
Ok...now back to our regularly scheduled snark and self-deprecation.
