Such Great News

40 weeks pregnant
6 weeks postpartum
My husband and I have been on this paleo diet, like a low-carb diet for about 2-3 weeks now. I agreed to go on it with him because I had yet to be down to my pre-pregnancy weight. This past Friday we went to visit my dad and the in-laws. Well, at my dad's, I used his scale and I couldn't believe my eyes. I am finally down to my pre-pregnancy weight!! I thought I would never make it that far! I gained 50lbs during my pregnancy so I was ecstatic. I don't know if it's this new diet we are on or if my body is just finally adjusting, but I am hoping it's the diet. It would be nice to know that this thing is working for us. I mean my husband says that his clothes feel looser so maybe it is this diet. I am glad to be down to this weight again, but don't get me wrong; I would LOVE to lose another 20-60lbs. I guess we will wait and find out. I don't mind the weight gain though because I am so glad Liam is here now. I can't imagine my life without him. How long did it take you to lose the weight (for those with children)? It may have taken me 4 1/2 months, but at least it happened. Although you should know that  I NEVER work out. I may walk around the mall with a friend or go on a walk seldom, but I haven't been working out. I usually just sit in the house and take care of Liam. I never make time. I am trying to more, but that isn't bad for the weight loss. I just want to feel semi-normal again. Although i'll tell you that I will NEVER fit into my old jeans if I can't loose these hips. They grew like no other. I just wanted to share how happy I am to finally reach this milestone after having Liam. Has anyone else reached any milestones lately?
Can't really tell - but me recently on Halloween
