Down 40 lbs

I am down 40-ish lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight. You would think I would be shouting this from the rooftops but I am not. I am afraid. Afraid that I will blink and that it will all be right back.

Why do I think this?

Because I have done nothing at all to lose this weight. Nothing, Nada, Zilch.
It is not from breastfeeding because yet again same issues I had with last two kiddos. I was able to pump minute amounts while she was in NICU though so she did get some good stuff in her system.

I am not a gainer while pregnant. I only gained 8 and 9 lbs with each boy. With her I ended up losing  10 from the Gestational Diabetes. Of course after the swelling hit from surgery you would have never known. My ankles and calves were scary. Add in all the foot flexing from driving and I feared my right foot would never recover. My skin would crack and my tendons were really tight even after the water finally left. It took a good 10 days for it to finally leave. Driving then sitting in NICU unable to elevate them like I would have done at home made it last longer.

I have noticed some differences in my body. My fat apron is smaller. My love handles are smaller. Oddly enough I also lost weight in my feet!? My feet and ankles are so skinny to now. Of course that could be because I still remember them huge. LOL

I have been weighing myself daily to make sure the weight is staying gone. So far so good. Although my scale battery died so I need to get on that asap. I also need to break out my smaller clothing AGAIN. I was down to like 2 pairs of jeans that fit before pregnancy since I was up to 252.2 I am currently still wearing maternity pants. Not because I need to but because I was given a ton of them and they are front and center in closet and I know they will fit.

Time to break out the real clothing since I will be back to work again soon. Not looking forward to that.
