I gained a lot of weight with Easton. A lot. Like, really, a lot.
Are you ready for it?
I was a little worried because it took me a long time to lose the 40 pounds I gained with Natalie. Not that I tried very hard, but still, I tried a little, and it took months to lose it. So imagine how long it was going to take me to lose 50 pounds?
I lost thirty pounds in the first week, which made me feel a little bit better about myself. I mean, obviously a lot of what I gained was baby weight and water weight.
And then the next week, nothing changed. I weighed the same I had the week before.
Same story the week after that. So I decided I had lost all the "baby weight" that was going to come off easily, and I was going to have to work for the rest of it. Sad day.
I went on my phone and downloaded a calorie counter app. Lifesaver. It was so easy to use and really helped me notice how much I was eating every day, and how little I actually needed to eat. I've lost 10 pounds in the last 5 weeks.
I still have 10 pounds to go to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight, and I still have only one pair of jeans that I can button, but it's progress. My goal is to be back to my normal weight by summer.
Speaking of summer...ugh, swimsuits.
