I am spending most of my time at the hospital and pumping breastmilk for his feeding tube at this time, and I do not have access to a scale to weigh myself. (I also *might* be eating a lot of snacks that friends and family have brought for me!) Anyway, I will not be weighing in tomorrow morning, but I might next week if DS is home from the hospital then. orngbiggrin.gif

I hope your DS feels better and comes home from the hospital soon!

katelove, exciting to reach a milestone like that!


thecoffeebean, infant botulism? yikes, I hope your baby gets better. I will just copy over this weeks weight for you as a reminder that you checked in, even though a scale was unavailable. Hope he heals quickly


anne, even though it is the same, at least you haven't lost your progress.  Keep doing what you are doing and the weight will come off eventually.


AFM, the nurse practioner gave me the okay for "normal activities" again and I want to start swimming again now that the boys are older. Have to figure out how I feel about the "onsite day care" for the babies or whether I need to hire a babysitter to watch the boys at home for an hour a couple days a week to get my exercise again. I will be joining back up in particitpating in the challenges with the next challenge.


Here is week 6's stats.

136.9 lb

it's taking me one month to loose one kilo, slowly but steady i suppose (wish it could be faster !)

post #148 of 178

237.1 as of yesterday :(  I ran 7+ miles last week and weight lifted twice.  I hope it's just water weight.  It pissed me off so bad yesterday that I went down to the treadmill and ran the equivalent of a 5K >:(

I have been so sick with the flu for over 2 weeks and am just feeling well enough to start slowly walking or something.  We celebrated DS's first birthday last week and I can't believe I have basically weighed the same as I do now for almost a year.  I lost all my pregnancy weight within a week or 2 and then was at a stand still and then went up about 3-5 lbs, which is where I was at the beginning of this challenge.  I am now lower than my PP weight!  My ultimate goal is 8.5 lbs away, feeling so much closer!  Hoping I dont gain all the weight back now that I can taste and smell again.

186 today.  Stalled.


I tried to fit an extra swim in on Thursday, but forgot to check the pool schedule before I went.  I showed up just after 4pm on my way home from work, only to find that there's no lap swim between 4 and 6.  Sigh.  I'll make it Monday or Friday then.

I am still in the hospital with my DS. I haven't been home since last Sunday, so I can't weigh in today. The good news is that he is starting to tolerate more breastmilk via mouth, so we are hoping to wean him off the feeding tube in the next few days. Then we can go home!

crossing fingers that all continue to improve for your son, thecoffeebean !

post #156 of 178
Hope your son continues to improve, Coffeebean.

I weighed myself on Sunday 63kg, then on Monday I was 63.7kg!! I doubt that is right but it was my Monday morning weight so 63.7kg (140.43lb) it is :-(

Going to wait to post the charts until a few more ladies check in.


thecoffeebean, glad to hear your son is starting to do better. Hopefully you will be home before you know it.

post #158 of 178

@thecoffeebean, I can't even imagine how stressful this has been for you.  Hopefully you're all home and healthy soon.
