2 pounds lost!

When Hubby comes home from work every day he immediately becomes a human jungle gym.  The kids crawl and bounce all over him.  Temporarily forgetting this, I lay in the floor this morning to do some sit ups.  I was instantly attacked by Punky and Chicken.  And let me tell you.  After three kids, sit ups don't feel good.  It used to take over 50 of them to make me feel it.  I think after 8 I was feelin' the burn.  Of course, it didn't help that I had two children making the actual SIT UP part near impossible as they were both sitting on my chest and stomach.  I did take advantage and used their weight for some leg lifts, though.  ;oD

I went to my six week check up Wednesday and I'm all clear to resume normal activities.  That means I can hit the exercising hard.  I didn't manage to do any at all this week, but I still lost 2 pounds.  2 down, 33 to go.  When you say it like that, it's definitely a little discouraging, but hopefully with exercise, those numbers will go a little quicker.  And once New Baby is sleeping through the night, I might be able to get out of bed a little early to do it before Hubby goes to work instead of the evening like I'm planning now.  Of course, that's all big dreams right now. 

My OB acted like he was going to miss me when he realized this was it for us.  I've been with him for 7 years and while I'll still go to him for PCOS management and my yearly exams, I obviously won't be seeing him every month like I have been.  For almost 3 years now it's been at least once a month I've gone to him for pregnancy.  I told him I didn't know what we'd do not seeing him so much (Hubby and I used to tease that he was my second hubby since he knows me about as well!), and he replied with a sort of whiny, "I know, it's been great!"  And I'll never forget when we did our intra-uterine insemination during my infertility days.  After Hubby did his thing, he left.  I asked him, "Don't you want to stay when Dr. What'sHisName gets me pregnant?"  I still laugh about that one.  It's amazing the attachment and friendship you develop with your doctor when you see them so much!

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.  We don't have much planned here except enjoying some time off!

Congrats on the 2 lbs. That is great for a week. You are only supposed to lose 1-2 lbs a week if you are doing it right. So, that that means you are doing great! Keep up the good work!!

yea I am still doing weight watchers and likin' it. I have lost 8 pounds in 5 weeks. But that enchilada recipe isn't too bad. I just make sure I get everything low fat or fat free and I try to keep too much cheese off my side and fill them with more veggies then the other. Cause Tortillas can be 2 points, chicken 2 points each tortilla, and veggies are 0, so that just leaves sauce with is probably low and cheese. So you could actually be okay points if done right. Probably 5-6 each.
