Me, too-- my 5th and I have not lost weight as quickly. However, I gained less this time, too, because my m/s was with me ALL the way until the end. Not horrible at that point, just there. It really is much more than the weight to me this time. For years, I've been skinny -fat. The scale # is low, but I have very little muscle and am not fit at all. My goal is to start working out 3xs a week . . .I feel up to it now, but with the kids sick I am not sure how.
