Default Should I change my ticker?

I know this is a silly, fluffy sort of thread, but I honestly am not sure if this is a good or bad idea for myself.

I mentioned this in the "curious" thread about how much weight all of us have lost combined. I started my "diet" just barely over 2 months ago (my 2 month "anniversary" was the 26th). Since then I've lost 26 pounds. Before that, I lost 18 pounds after my all-time high on the day my son was born.

Should I change the starting weight on my ticker to reflect that all-time high? On the one hand, it's kind of neat to see how far I really have come. On the other hand, I feel like maybe I shouldn't count the pregnancy weight entirely, since 7 pounds of it was, well, my son!

I'm sorry for such a silly thread. I'd just like to hear - what would you do?

Actually, all 18 of it was probably your son...you have to take into account the weight of the amniotic fluid and the placenta also...I lost about 20 lbs the day my son was born. If we're going to be doing THAT, then I can say I've lost 31 lbs...but, for me I think that would be cheating.

I lost 20-ish by giving birth to my daughter but only 10 in the hospital with my son so I don't know if I was just retaining water or what. You're right that a lot of it was probably amniotic fluid and placenta and all the other wonderful stuff that comes with giving birth. I probably won't change my ticker.

I wouldn't change it. So much of it is not actual "fat" on you. Besides the baby, amniotic fluid, and placenta-you also have more blood volume when you are pregnant, extra volume in your breasts from milk production, and many other things. Stick with what you have been.

I wouldn't change it. WHen I went into the hospital to give birth to my daughter I was 188 going in and 192 going out. And I was in labor for days and had not eaten. In other words... its not a done deal that your weight will drop after giving birth.
