Up and Down

With regard to losing the baby weight after pregnancy, many books say you should give yourself 9 months to get back to your pre-pregnancy weight.

Nine months up, 9 months down!

If that's the case then I have 4 pounds to lose by Thursday. I really don't think it's going to happen.

All I can say is, it is a good thing my mom doesn't come visit me every week anymore...because when she was here helping me babysit in January she ALWAYS bought takeout food for dinner and cake from Nugget for dessert. I actually think I regained some weight that month.

How likely is it that my 4 extra pounds are newly acquired arm muscle (from holding my squirmy baby all the time) and extra dairy real estate?

Naw, I am sure you have a good 4lbs of extra boob on you. And I heard that too, and I think it will be another 6 months before I get down (it has taken me uhem one year to get down 9lbs), from my aftermath of baby

Don't underestimate muscle mass gained from baby-wrangling — every time I hold a babe I am astounded at how much work it is!! xoxoxoxoxoxo
