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!
