Weight Update

At the beginning of the month, I was down 17 lbs. I've lost five more pounds this month, putting me now at 22 lbs lost!! I'm so thrilled with this progress.

Today, I am officially less than what I was when I got pregnant with Maggie. I told myself when I hit that goal, I would book a doctor's appointment with Dennis to begin thinking about getting pregnant. I booked the appointment yesterday. It's not for another month, but it's on the horizon!

Would love to lose another 5 to 10 lbs before I actually get pregnant. We'll see how long it takes to get actually have another baby.

Maggie has been sick since Saturday night. We took her to the doctor on Sunday and were told that it was a stomach virus (she was vomiting Saturday night). Went to our regular pediatrician's office yesterday and we were told that she had strep and a sinus infection. She can go back to school tomorrow (I've been working from home all week with her). Only problem? Now I have strep!! I'm miserable today. Thank goodness for the ice storm that made Andrew stay home too.

Jenny,

You don't know me from a hole in the ground, but I've been following your blog since before Allie passed away and I have to say I am so excited for you guys as you start looking toward this new chapter. I will continue keeping you in my prayers! :)

Congratulations on making your goal...that is awesome!!! I am struggling with trying to get down to pre-preggy sizes too. The closest I have been is 10 over pre-preggy weight and I just can't seem to shed those last stubborn pounds...it's frustrating! That is just so great that you have made it - gives us other moms out here hope that it can be accomplished. :) Hope you get over the strep soon - I had it in the fall, 3 times within 8 weeks (that was one stubborn strand), and it was awful...there is nothing worse than a sore throat when it comes to being sick. Get better soon. :)

Jenny, congrats on the weight loss. That is awesome. I know you mentioned South Beach but would love to hear your other secrets. Like how you avoid eating any of the little ones food or how you don't loose it on the weekends. I've been working on doing better since Jan 6th. I weighed last night at my trainers and I am down .5 pounds. Which is better than gaining. But seriously, when you have 100 to loose I'm getting discouraged. Love the new blog design, how'd you do it?

Debbie said...

You are doing awesome on your weight loss! I know it isn't easy.
Good job!

I hope you are feeling better soon!

You get ice storms there?? I always imagined it to be warm and balmy!

HollyH said...

great job, Jenny! I know that took a lot of hard work and sacrificing! I won't recognize you when I see you next month. You'll have to introduce yourself! Sorry about the strep. That sucks. I hope you're on the way to feeling well soon!

WOW! So much good news from your house lately... the cruise, the weight loss, the possibility of another little Scott in the world. I wish you didn't have strep so you could enjoy it.

I had Sophie at the doc's this morning for a strep test. Negative, but she's still feeling pretty crummy. I am really ready for winter to be over.

Congrats on the pg plans! And I feel for you and the strep. I had it in August and thought I would just die. Speaking of Dennis, would you ask Dana if you can give an update on her and the family? I check her caringbridge page periodically to see if she's updated again. I know so many people worry about her.

Brett said...

Awesome about the weight Jenny!!! Bet you look awesome!

Feel better soon!

It means Grace said...

I thought you looked wonderful the last time I saw you, so now you must look even more beautiful. I'm glad that you will soon have that special glow.
