Yay! I am down 20lbs from my delivery day! Now I'm more than halfway back to pre-preg weight, and from there it's not much to hit my all time dream goal.

I was wrong. I'm not down 20lbs. This morning the scale was up 2lbs, so I'm only down 18lbs.

I started to cry but had to stop after the crying made my belly bounce and jiggle and flop all over.

I am sad today. I wish I could work out. I wish I could just wear my regular pants. (I wish I could just DO UP my regular pants, that is. I have muffin top that actually touches my belt buckle. Ew, ew, ew.)

WTG Jilly, 18 or 20 lbs, either is great. Take the time you need to let your body heal, you will get there!

Relax, momma! It sounds like you are more than motivated to put in the work. Give yourself some time to heal. You just finished making a person, for crying out loud

i know right now it seems like it is so far away. but honestly most people take 9 months to put it on and it takes 9 months to take it off. 18- 20lbs is a great start, and i wouldnt fret about 2lbs. it the grand scheme of things, noone is looking at you going " ya know, she looked 2lbs lighter yesterday...whats up with that?" lol

It took me a 10-11 months to lose the 22lbs i gained from being pregnant with Charlie. I initially lost about 12 lbs right after he was born, then i gained 10 back from being starving from breastfeeding, and so when he was about 2 months old i had to lose 20lbs all over again. but it did happen. i was a a good diet, i exercised and i got down to about 10lbs above my prepreggo weight. The last of it came off in the summer when i was super busy running around with 2 kids!

you will be fine mama, you are only 4 weeks post partum. Dont be so hard on yourself.

Jilly you seem to have unhealthy expectations about weight. I hate to see you so stressed out when you barely just had a baby. Its just not healthy. You seem to have this mindset that it will NEVER happen. You will lose the weight when you are healthy enough to exercise!

~Thank you Claire for my beautiful siggy!~

Thanks, ladies. I did get down to 149 (yay!) and since then my weight's been kind of bopping around between a couple pounds. I'm feeling a little better about it all and the compression garment I've been wearing on my baby belly really seems to help.

Apparently I'm still a little emotional & hormonal, lol.
