I'm pretty sure I glossed over my postpartum period with Mason and fortunately got back into shape relatively quickly.
This time I wanted to document the process a little bit better ... mainly to have some accountability.
Since my last weight check was at 38 weeks, I'm going to say my final weight was probably 133. My weight on 7/22 was 108 which I think was week 10. So for argument's sake, let's say total weight gain was 25 pounds.
As of this morning I'm about 10-12 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight. Today I took my first walk around the neighborhood (roughly 0.65 miles). I'm feeling good but didn't want to push myself too much.
I'm thinking of heading to the gym tomorrow (need somewhere to take Mason) and figured I could do some more walking and maybe some weight training.
I think I'm still riding the high of having a new baby and haven't really stopped to realize how extremely exhausted I truly am. I am really lucky to have my parents in town to help with Mason ... lord help me when they leave. I've gotten the chance to focus my energies on Anderson while still maintaining a quasi normal role in the household.
There's definitely a belly left ... and I'm fitting into size 3 shorts at this point. Slowly but surely I'll get back into shape.
