This morning I took Jackson to see the doctor. I had a hunch his cold had morphed into a sinus infection and that hunch proved true. Hopefully these antibiotics will help him kick it once and for all!
After picking up his prescription and dropping him off at home, I headed out to my first Weight Watchers meeting.
The number on the scale did not please me, because it was a reminder that I packed on the pounds in the final 2 months of my pregnancy. I had done so well for the bulk of the pregnancy as far as weight gain goes and I honestly don’t know what happened those final 2 months; I feel like I was eating much of the same foods and in the same quantities. No point worrying about that now though. What’s done is done. Right?
I’m hoping and praying that I can actually lose weight while nursing this time around. With the boys I lost and gained the same 2 pounds for the 3 months I was nursing and pumping for them. As soon as I weaned I started dropping the weight. I’m trying to remain positive and assume that I didn’t lose before because my body wasn’t quite sure what to do with itself while trying to produce milk for 3 children. For now, I’ll do what I can. I’ll eat better, I’ll exercise more and I’ll be kind to myself if I don’t lose much weight while nursing this little munchkin.
Instead of going for a walk today, like I’d hoped, I’m watching it pour. Bummer! Seems like the perfect time to read through the materials I got today and try to figure this new program out. Later today I’ll have Nick take a “before” picture of me and I’ll take my measurements. After I weigh in next Friday I’ll put a weight loss ticker up on the blog; not because I want to brag about my awesome losses (hopefully!), but because I want a visible, daily reminder of what I’m working towards.
Maybe for my work out today I should try my hand at using Chase’s hula hoop… he could teach me how to use it 😉
