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 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 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  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,
