Wednesday Weigh-In

I believe that I have successfully transitioned the baby off of bottles and on to Whole milk. She is not thrilled about it, but she will drink it. She has also woken up during the middle of the night and wanted to nurse, so maybe it hasn't been as successful as I'd hoped.

What this means for me is that I will no longer be pumping milk during the day at work. I cannot begin to tell you how exciting this is for me. While I am sad that my baby is growing up, I am thrilled to not be constantly stressed over how much milk I am producing. For you breastfeeding advocates out there, don't panic, I will still be nursing her when she needs is, but hopefully it will only be at bedtime.

This also means that I will feel much better about cutting back on my calories and stepping up on my exercise. I've used this spring break to do both. Along with my sisters at The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans, I have embarked on the 30 Day Shred Challenge. Today is day 3 and I feel great. I even think my hubby will be starting it too (he's waiting until after his Easter indulgences).

Today's weigh-in wasn't that great, but I've just started the Challenge and fully expect next weeks numbers to be better!

Starting weight: 1_8.4


Last week: 1_0.4

This Week : 1_0.4

Gain/loss: 0

Total: +2.o
