i don't mind this little bit extra, it's livable for now, but i do look forward to the day when i don't have to be quite so careful about tanking my milk supply and i have an hour once a week to take a run.

Same here! There's no way I'm going to lose this in 3 months. :(


BTW- it's good to see you back in the DDC elevena true!

oooh, how I miss Zumba! I cannot wait to start going again!



So, I am trying to focus on how much I move instead of how much I eat (I cannot cut back, that would be a disaster for me)...So, there was a callback for ipod nanos, and I had a pretty old beat up one, sent it in and the one the sent back has a pedometer on it. I have to say, since I started using it, I am paying more attention as to how much I moved around. Last week I even went for a walk w the baby since the step number seemed low....I guess these little tricks will be the motivator for me otherwise I do not know when I can workout and not cause a significant chaos in my daily life. Sigh...still have 13 pounds to go prepg and that was about 5 pounds heavier that my normal weight. 


you guys give me hope!

I am just wondering for those who are following Weight Watchers and nursing, what you are doing with your points as you introduce solids?  Are you dropping right away to 7 extra points or staggering it?


I have been working at getting the weight off since October and I am down 16 pounds since then which puts me at my weight when I got pregnant.  I just need to get off the 30 pounds now that I gained before getting pregnant.
