Weighed in last night at 133.6. I was surprised I didn't gain since the beginning of the month given my last couple weeks' habits, but my body fat did go up and I gained a quarter inch on the hips. I don't necessarily trust the body fat on the scale, but it at least gives me an idea if I'm going up or down, and this was definitely up. I really need to get back to exercising regularly.

I weighed in this morning at 137. My doctor's scale seems to reflect a 2 pound difference - his would likely read somewhere around 135. Either way, if my end goal is 120, I've got between 15 and 17 pounds to go! That's after having started out with 61 pounds to lose!

kifli: I am drinking slim fast for breakfast and then just trying to eat more veggies and only snack at designated times instead of grazing all day. I am breastfeeding so I still like to eat intuitively but I find that if I eat 5 times a day then I am more aware of when I am hungry and need food or I am just tired and need to sit for a minute. I would love to calorie count because that works best for me but what I need in a day tends to depend on how much my daughter nurses and right now she is all over the place.

I was 138.5 this am so I guess I am doing it right so far.

Sarahlynn: thanks for sharing your strategy I lost most of my weight by watching what I ate and bf'ing my 2nd baby. I went from 194 to about 142 when I stopped bf'ing (I was able to nurse him exclusively for 13 months). Now I'm having a terrible time getting past 135.

With my first baby, I bf him for a year, but I was able to drop to 125 rather quickly. I didn't gain very much weight with that pregnancy though, so maybe that is the reason.

Are you keeping up with the shred? I work a hard, grueling 12 hour day on Thursdays, so I decided to take Thursdays off and make up for them at the end

Well I wanted to reach the 120s by tomorrow... Today I am 130.2, so I'm pretty happy with that! We'll see what tomorrow morning brings...

kifli- I am keeping up with it but like you I take a day off each week. For me it is Mondays because I have a parent training course for my son's Speech Therapy in the evenings and I don't want to burn myself out.

I am having the same trouble this time with the loss being slower. With my first and second I didn't breast feed long so I pretty much crash dieted my way back down to where I wanted to be. With my third I was in the best shape of my life when I got pregnant and breastfed for 13 months and had no trouble losing all of the weight quickly. This time around I had gained 25 lbs before getting pregnant all related to my Grandfather's death some while he was ill just from not taking care of myself and some from comforting myself with junk so though I didn't gain an excessive amount of weight and I was able to lose all of that in 4 months I can't shake 20 of the 25 lbs I gained before hand.

^ah the 120s! what an amazing feeling, congrats Cat86.


I'm restarting now after a few moves. I managed to get under 125 when I was living in England in 2010. Now I'm back at 139.x, and living in the Netherlands. (via PR and Virginia hehe). All the transitions always take a toll on me for various reasons. Anyway I'm ready to commit to working hard to see the 120s I really really REALLY want to be in the 120s when I go home for Xmas.

Sarah- Sorry for not getting back to you...we are on vacation this week. I have been biking a lot, but not doing the shred I have been wanting to do it but the husband and kids are keeping me extra busy while we are away. I'm going to restart when I get back.
I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandfather.
I have a high stress life and I struggle with emotional eating as well.
Sounds like we are in the same boat as far as weight loss and pregnancies.
I hope you seem some significant results
