Today starts day 3 of Weight Watchers for me. I've decided not to weigh myself for a while. I weighed in at the hospital before Sis was born and I'll wait a week or two before I weigh in here at home. First of all I'm still retaining some serious fluid which is obvious when I try to wear any of my shoes. Second of all with all the engorgement there's several pounds maybe tens of pounds (maybe I'm exaggerating a bit, but only a bit) that I don't want to weigh.
In order to keep all this in check and not get too worked up about it holding off on weighing is definitely a good thing for me.
So far so good. I'm eager to be fit and healthy again so the temptations are limited. The sweet Coopers brought dinner to us last night and the plate of oohey gooey brownies was difficult. I allowed myself a small chunk and now I'm fine.
I'm currently doing the old Core plan which technically doesn't exist anymore. It's now called the Filling Foods Option. It's helpful in the breastfeeding stage when I'm starving since I'm allowed to eat until satisfied on the filling foods. I did Core after Elijah was born and I dropped the 65lbs I gained in less than 4 months. I'm guessing it won't be quite that quick since I'm 5 years older and this is my 5th baby. Fortunately for me I'll be fine emotionally as long as I'm working on it.
My goal this time is to enjoy my baby and allow the weight issue to be a tiny side to my life verses allowing the obsession of it become my primary focus and miss out on the precious fleeting moments of infancy.
