Mommy Progress Report...
(wow that mirror was dustier than I thought...sorry about that!)
6 weeks post partum:
Pre-pregnancy weight: 107 lbs
38 weeks (date of delivery): 144 lbs
2 weeks post partum: 121 lbs
6 weeks post partum: 124 lbs (not sure why it was more than at my two week weigh in...possibly because they were different scales. I don't really feel or look like I gained weight. Either way, weight wise I'm pretty happy with where I'm at right now...mostly I just want to tone my belly and lower half, as far as weight goes, we'll see what feels and looks good).
Goal weight: 115 lbs
The biggest problem I'm having is my hips...not sure if they'll go back down or not. Right now I don't fit into any pants. My maternity pants are too loose and slide down and my regular pants I can't get past my hips.
Another strange thing is my feet. I read that during pregnancy some women's feet "grow" (the ligaments stretch due to the same hormones that allow the pelvis to do its thing)...and I can't fit into any of my shoes either. Needless to say my wardrobe is extremely limited. I have one pair of pants that I bought and one pair of worn out flip flops that I can wear relatively comfortably.
So that's that... 6 weeks after baby boo :)
