Last post!

It seems like just yesterday,  we got the news that my cervix was shortening, and I was going to be put on bed rest.  Because of everything I learned, I will keep this blog "alive." It would be great to know that I helped someone else get through their fight :)!  Well we all know what my fight was for....so here are some new pics that S emailed me of Ellie and Owen!!






I can't believe what chunkers they are!!  Gosh, I just want to squeeze those little cheeks!!  Weaning off pumping went fairly well.  I found a couple good tips from SMO like wearing 2 bras -- what a lifesaver.  It was a little sad seeing the FedEx truck pull away for the last time. 

Well, I hope you will all follow me on my new quest...to lose the FINAL 11lbs and heck maybe even a little more!!!!  After last Wednesday, I'm now down to 136 WOOHOO!  Here's my new blog http://bodyaftertwinkies.blogspot.com/.  Follow my crazy battle with the scale to get back to 125lbs!! 

Thanks again to everyone for all the support through it all :)

This chapter is finally closed :)

As of 7am this morning, I had my final pumping session.  It was definitely bittersweet.  On one hand yes it's going to be great to get a venti caffeinated pumpkin spice w/an extra shot & drink my dear moscato, but then I know this is really the end.  FedEx is coming to get the one box tonight, and I'll schedule the final pick up for Thursday.  I made my original goal of at least 2 months :)  Here's the latest pics S sent me -- I definitely know that the breast milk did it's job because they're just chunkers now (even if they might have been a tad gassy LOL)!!!





If you took a peak at the ticker at the top...down to 137!!! 12lbs to go!!!  I was definitely excited when I saw that on the scale this morning.  I had my free personal training session this morning at the gym.  It went great!  I love just being pushed to the max.  I told him my major concern is saddle bags and he gave me some new things to do -- love it (even if it's sooo painful lol).  I was walking like my legs were jello afterwards & it was great!! Because I LOATHE running, I finally figured out a way to trick myself into running longer distances.  I just cut out tracks during my body pump routine and run during them!! I ran 2.1 miles yesterday and didn't die -- crazy!  I can't even remember the last time I ran that far.  I'm just starting this week out @ 5mph and next week I'll up it to 5.5 and so on. 

I still can't believe it's all over now.  Now I'm just wondering what size my boobs are going to shrink back down too LOL!


Until Next Time,

Whitney
