the biggest loser

i went to the instacare this week - long story, you can ask me if you must know - and there was a moment that felt exactly like biggest loser the reality show. i was waiting for them to call my name, which they do not do they give you a pager that vibrates just like at a restaurant. anyway, the first thing the nurse asks me to do when she takes me back is to step on the scale so she can record my weight.

well, it was exactly one week since jane was born and i was thinking, i wonder how much weight i have lost? the scale was a digital scale too, just like biggest loser. so, i did not take my shoes off, but i should have just for effect. i stepped on the scale and the numbers went up and up but not as high as i expected them to (and no, they did not jump back and forth like on tv.) finally i looked and behold, i had lost exactly 20 pounds! yes, that must be a biggest loser record, 20lbs. in one week! granted, 8lbs. 20z. of that was baby, another maybe 6 or so of other "stuff" inside there, and i'm sure there was some water weight too. but still - pretty great. and all i had to do was go through an 8 hour "last chance workout" to get here. about 20 more pounds to go and i will be back to my "pre-pregnancy" weight!

Being a "Biggest Loser" fan, I can appreciate this post! If it makes you feel better, I still have 7-10 lbs (depending on the day) of "baby fat" to lose to get to my pre-pregnancy weight and it has been five and half years! You're doing great!
