Is this scale broken?

All of the maternity clothes have been washed and packed away--I have a box of loaned clothes in my car just ready to be returned. I finally had my six week follow up appointment. It was six weeks late but that is a whole other story.

Towards the end of my pregnancy, even my maternity clothes weren't fitting and I hadn't really thought about how.much.weight.I.gained.

Ummmm...I was so surprised to really


So. I had to think--do I really want to blog about this and I think the answer is--yes.

At my appointment I found out what my final weight was--a few pounds less than I had thought but holy.smokes.

What I do know is that I've lost 24 pounds and have 21 pounds to go. More will be lost and I'll be happy to report it!

Not that I've ever given birth, but I have worked to lose weight and just to encourage you, I'd like to say 1) you're beautiful and 2) take your time as you lose weight - no deadlines. Enjoy some ice cream as you work on it. Cheering you on.

I love your honesty! Refreshing! I'm gaining my pregnancy pounds steadily and told myself it's worth it for my precious girl. :)

Good luck to you as you lose the weight! And pass on any good tips you find along the way. I'll need it next year!
