is really not showing up much on the scale, it is pretty close every week. BUT I am noticing every week I can fit into another piece of clothing or two from before Levi's pregnancy, but I can't yet fit into clothing I bought before DD's pg. The workout I do is not really the issue, since I love to exercise that hasn't really changed. What I have been focusing on more is simple diet changes and I know that these subtle changes will help the number on the scale as time goes on. I am packing very healthy lunches for work (basically, an awesome salad every day) instead of the fatty school lunches I ate every single day almost last year and I am keeping a mini fridge in my class stocked with calorie free drinks (instead of drinking sweet tea from the school cafeteria like i drank EVERY SINGLE day last year) The sweet tea alone I figured added almost 40,000 calories to my diet in a school year (over 10 pounds a year in sweet tea at work!!!) and the lunches saves me a huge # of calories too. So I think my weight loss will be more like the tortise than the hare, slow and steady wins the race!

Sounds like you are doing great!! I've heard slower is better for keeping it off long term!

I've heard that too, and I have always been good at maintaining weight so I am feeling very satisfied! Just got back from a two mile jog walk with weights on my wrists and did a good six minutes of abs when I got home...wooohooO!
