A bike trailer?

Jaimee, I think that it's worth a shot.  I still have the tiniest bit of spotting (like after dtd), but walking a few miles hasn't increased my bleeding.

I think they still need a helmet. But I don't think their neck is strong enough. 

 

I may look into it further this spring. It's too cold now anyway.

Hmmm I don't really want to buy a bike trailer.  I prefer seats on the front of the bike (iBert) but you're not supposed to use them until 1 year.  Agh!  I want to bike this year!

Can someone please explain to me how I am 4-6 lbs under my pre pregnancy weight now but still can not wear my low rise pants? They won't button! Higher cut jeans are fine- too big even. Did my hips really spread that much? But it's my third kid? Anyone have a clue?

My hips are wider, too.  I think its because I'm older.

Yep, with each pregnancy I've dipped below pre-pregnancy weight and still my pants don't fit for several more weeks.  I assume it's b/c the bones are wider and take time to move back, but they always have moved back.  I will be seriously bummed if they do not as I will have to replace all my pants.  Ugh.

Ahh. Hmmm, I hope it doesn't stay this way. My pants (that I can button) fit super funny. It's always been hard for me to find pants- I have a big butt and small waist. I don't need it to get even more difficult.

Simultaneously excited that I fit into my skinny jeans (yes!) and wondering if I am too old for skinny jeans... Hmmm....

IMO, there really isn't an age limit on skinny jeans.  It's more about how you look in them, rather than how old you are.  If you're 60, fit and have a great shape, then I say go for it!  If you're 25 and 350lbs, please don't wear them! (Yes, I see this on a regular basis)  I think there are many classy, mature ways to wear things like skinny jeans without looking like you shop in the jr's department.  :)

So in one week from your last post you fit into your pants again?  Inspiration for us all!  thumb.gif

Yep, back in the jeans. It's not hard work... I caught a stomach bug last week and barely ate. Lol!

That's what happened to me, too, but then I put 3 pounds right back on after I felt better.  My bones still need to move, though, that's my problem.

That's exactly what I lost- 3 lbs during that week. Maybe I caught the stomach bug from you over the interwebs. I hear that's possible now. orngtongue.gif

I think I found a solution to break through my stalled weight loss, which has stalled 100% because of my comfort/stress eating lately. Guilty! I am notorious for obsessing over the numbers on the scale. It discourages me and makes me sabotage myself further when I don't see progress. I finally made a promise to myself not to step on the scale at ALL while I'm dropping weight. It feels liberating to not be a slave to the scale! I'm feeling so much more in control of my eating behaviors without the obsession of losing weight racing through my mind. I'm just focusing on the feel-good energy and health advantages that portion control and regular exercise are giving me now. When I fit into my smaller clothes again, then I'll know how far I've come! thumb.gif

I hate how bad my weight fluctuates.

 

I've stopped eating 12 times a day (LOL) since my supply's leveled out. I'm only allowing myself to eat 3-4 times a day now, but I swear I'm getting fatter. I look four months pregnant again. And since I'm back at work now (I'm a cashier at Sam's Club so I do a lot of lifting), on top of living on the 3rd floor of my apartment... And walking my dog 3 times a day... And kid... You'd think I'd at least... IDK. I guess I have wrong expectations.

How is everyone doing?

 

My weight seems to be coming off slowly and steadily.  This morning I weighed 140lbs, so that's about 5lbs lost from the start of this thread!  I've been making a point to walk 2-3 miles, 3-4 days a week.   So far so good!  Just 15lbs to go~

post #57 of 218
I'm 6 lbs less than my pre-pregnancy weight, which is awesome. I'm feeling pretty good about myself. I'm 141 now. I'd like to make it to 135 at least, but I'm not in a huge rush. I've been careful about what I eat, but I still haven't managed too much exercise. I know it's the breastfeeding. I imagine that once Jasper weans, I'll go back up to my pre-preg weight. But I'm going to enjoy it for now!

I haven't budged! I guess I should be happy I haven't gained anything and I'm about as lazy as can be (lots of couch time for nursing/napping/etc)! I should really try to get myself in gear. I'd love to get at least 20 pounds lost before July. That's doable, right??? nut.gif

 

Congrats on the five pounds lost! That's great!

Sigh.  I am doing some tupler exercises here at home but I'm still squishy.  I need to make more time for exercise.  It's sunny this week so I should get out of the house more!  

post #60 of 218

I know what you mean, J.  I need more free body time in order to actually do the Tupler exercises.  But take heart, real change isn't usually seen until 4-6 weeks of daily breathing exercises.  We should try and motivate each other each day to do them!  Oh, and I want to see a picture of this supposed squishy belly...  winky.gif
