Thanks everyone! I am just coming online after a long day and I am so touched by everyone's well wishes - it means so much to me and I plan on leaning on everyone as my hubby can only do so much!! My clothes are still fitting - but I am expecting some unbuttoning will be coming in a few weeks...looking forward to it!

Congratulations, Liz!! I just read this! so happy for you!!

I remember that your tag line was "getting to a healthy baby-making weight," or something like that. Well, you did it and now you're doing it!!!

Many blessings and good wishes!!

So the point I was trying to make is you've positively effected many of us here on 3FC, **** I was smiling and thinking of you in the kitchen this morning. I know you're very goal oriented too, look at your success! Anyway I am babbling and need to get my LizR Spinach shake 'cause I'm freaking hungry. Very happy for you!
LOL - I am still surviving on those spinach smoothies!!!!

I have to admit, I was very nervous putting babymaking plans on hold for almost a year because of my age (38). It took me 2 cycles to get pg with #1 when I was 35yo, so maybe I just have late blooming fertility. I do think waiting the first couple of months in P4 was a good idea as my cycle was whacky for a while.

I'm not pushing the method, I just know that the recommended diet's foundation is a lot like IP P4 (well, with lots of dairy and bread) in its emphasis on getting 100g of protein a day.
Thanks for the link! I'm checking it out - you always have such great posts!

I posted this update on the Maintainers thread, but figured I would repost on my old zombie thread. I am not following IP now for obvious reasons (post partum and breast feeding), but going back to my veggie basics and incorporate the healthy habits and recipes I learned through my first journey.

****************************

Hey everyone! I had my little girl, Payton Ann, 4-weeks ago today! We picked her name on Saturday, then I went into labor on Sunday, and had her on Monday! She is just the sweetest little thing, I forgot how precious little newborn smells and snuggles are - but the 3-hour sleep shifts are just like I remembered! Her days/nights were flipped the first 2 weeks, but we are now getting contiguous sleep shifts.

I ended up with a c-section, but healed up pretty fast and was walking around within 2 days, and never took any pain meds (although the first 2 days I was pretty sore). I am DYING to get back to the gym and lift & run, but still have 2 more weeks until I get cleared. I do bust out our little treadmill for short 30-minute walks while she naps. I credit the continued weightlifting with my quick recovery, I actually hit up Bodypump the Thursday before I went into labor!

Unlike my last pregnancy, I never suffered any pains in my back, knees, heel (plantar fasciitis), or wrists (carpal tunnel). I totally went gung ho on eating these first few weeks, but am trying to get back into a groove now that I am not ruled by pure exhaustion or pregnancy cravings. I need to return regularly back here to stay honest, I am nursing, but that's no excuse to "let loose".

She was 9lb 2oz & 20". I have big babies, my son was 9lb 7oz & 21". I blame my 6'4" hubby, he was a 10lb+ baby (my poor MIL, she is tiny).

I signed up for a half-marathon on feb 15 as my motivation to get back to it @ 6-months post partum. The last one I ran I was 18-weeks preggers and I stopped jog-walking completely at 28-weeks...it's been a loooong break for my sneakers!
