As of Saturday, February 2nd, 2008, I have officially lost all 60 pounds of my pregnancy weight. The last five pounds took 3 months to lose (well worth the goodies) and during the last week and a half, I've been wrestling with the last half pound. At that point I'd basically lost all the weight, but I hated seeing that .5 on my scale, mocking me.
Every morning I'd jump on to see if it was gone and then try all of my antics to make it go down (removing all clothes, jewelry, bodily waste, and not eating or drinking anything until the weigh-in.) On Saturday morning I jumped on the scale and Mr .5 was still there. AHHH! I decided, as a desperate last resort, to take my glasses off and put my contacts in. Then I jumped back on the scale. Mr. .5 WAS GONE! Hallelujah.
Just for fun, here are before and after shots in the same shirt:
Speaking of Sophie, I can't believe how big she looks now compared to when we brought her home. And look at the way her body is shaped. She went from being curled up in a ball to flailing her arms and legs around all the time.
