And there it goes...

So I've never been one of those skinny skinny people. And for the most part, that's fine with me. There were times in my past that I let myself go so to speak and had to take some control and get rid of the excess baggage. Unfortunately, right before I got pregnant I was in one of those "letting go of myself" phases. Not drastically but I definitely had a bit more weight then I would have liked.

While pregnant, because of my gestational diabetes, I gained 30 pounds. If you ask me, that's a bit more then I really needed to (I would have been happier with 20 to 25) but the doctors didn't seem concerned at all. Within one month after having the baby I dropped 20 pounds.

Now, 3 months later, I am officially 2 pounds below my pre-pregnancy weight. I am not satisfied completely because I still have that lingering 10 pounds I want to get rid of. But I'm content. I've been told the cause is anywhere from nursing to running around with a baby (which can only get worse when he starts moving on his own). If it's nursing then that's going to suck since eventually I have to stop (personal health issues). If it's running around then I can hopefully look forward to losing the last ten by the time Z is one.

hey! i saw your comment and she just sort of knew what to do with the spoon. i was reading in my "what to expect the first year" and they said to hold the spoon up to the babies mouth and let the baby suck the food off the spoon. sometimes she did this, and sometimes we had to help her get the food in her mouth because she is just learning... good luck! and i found this to be helpful: http://www.gerber.com/fpidea?ideaid=idea1
