So, its been 3 weeks...

So, it's been 3 weeks for Brynn:
My baby girl is getting so big! I'm not sure how much she weighs at this point, but I'm betting that she's gotta be pushing the 11 pound mark by now. My girl never. stops. eating. It's getting really hard to keep her full.

Right now, she eats about 4oz every 2-3 hours. And if we make it to the 3 hour mark, we're lucky. She usually starts putting up a good fight at about the 2.5 hour mark and the only way she makes it past 3 hours is if she's sleeping {then we make fun of her that all her timers/alarms will go off because it's time to eat again!} I just feed her when she's hungry.

I sure do love my big baby girl though =)

She's been sleeping pretty well at night and she definitely makes the 3 hour stretches then, which is all we can hope for! Every once in awhile she even sleeps for 4 hours straight and Bob and I really enjoy those nights of a little extra sleep. Even if it's just 45 minutes, it makes a world of difference.

Each day that passes brings on a little more awake time for Brynnie girl. Of course we really enjoy this time, but I think Carter enjoys it the most. He constantly gives her hugs and kisses and lately he's been showing her all of his toys. Brynn really likes Carter's soccer ball rattle from when he was little, but Carter Man doesn't understand why she can't hold it and play with him.

Soon enough, sweet boy.

Yesterday, Brynn and I had some time to ourselves while Bob and Carter were out, and she was wide awake! Here is a little video of my pretty girl...

So, it's been 3 weeks for Jenni:

My weight is still holding steady at -24 pounds. That's 1 pound under my pre-pregnancy weight. I even tried on some of my regular clothes and they fit perfectly. I think I cried happy tears when my favorite jeans slipped right on and I didn't have to struggle to button them.

My belly has really gone down a lot this past week. I think I can safely say that it's gone from "deflated" to "floppy" this week. Let's hope the "floppy" stage doesn't stick around too long.

I thought I'd share a picture. Bob took it this weekend, at 2 weeks and 5 days postpartum:
What do you think of my new haircut!?! I got 2 inches cut off, and I kind of wish I got it a little shorter. Oh, and I got those much needed highlights I was talking about. I really like it... it makes me feel better that I have a new do :)

Although I have to wait until after my 6 week appointment on June 30th, I'm already starting to think of an exercise plan. I'm not sure if I should do Weight Watchers, the 30-day Shred, or maybe a combo of the two? I've done Weight Watchers before and I really did see some results, but I think I might want to try something new. I'm not sure.

Any mamas out there want to share your exercise/weight loss regime with me?? I need something. And fast. I'm heading to Outer Banks in just 75 days!

South Beach Diet? I have heard good results with that! I'm starting it today.

Alena said...

Holy Crap you look great for not even a month PP!

I started Nutrisystem a little over a month ago and have had so much success. It's not cheap but the results have been great!

Moorhouse said...

you do look great! I thought I would tell you that I did the 30 day shred in April and LOVED it. I think you will too. You will see results - which is the most important part right? Brynn is beautiful - congrats!

Steph said...

Um, I am crazy jealous that you look SO FAB less than a month after your daughter's birth. JEALOUS!

I've lost 94 pounds since I had my son. I counted calories and worked out at home (mainly with the 30 Day Shred! But your weight loss is so much more impressive to me since you lost it so quickly and look SO amazing!

I think I love and hate you at the same time. ;)

I have some weight loss info on my blog if you're interested :)

You look wonderful! I always do the South Beach Diet and the 30 day Shred! Love it and see results fast. Also if you could find a gym that does classes like a butts and guts class that would really help too... I can't wait to get back to the gym! Good Luck... You look great!!!

You look amazing! I did five days of the 30-day-shred and threw in the towel ;) She is one tough biotch! I can say with certainty though that if I would have stuck with it I would have been very toned! Gonna try it again this time. Maybe I'll make it to day 6 ;)

Mommy Moreno said...

you look amazing!!!

Audrey said...

you look GREAT!
i'm doing the LOSEIT app. on my iphone starting today and then exercising by adding 1 minute to each days workout until I am consistantly working out for 45 min's, 6 days per week. I like variety, so the 30 day shred is a great addition, but I have to mix it up. KY humidity is RIDICULOUS so outdoor workouts have to be done before 6am! Good luck!

Victoria said...

You look great! I've also successfully lost a lot of weight with the LoseIt app!

I wrote an entry about it here if you want to check it out:


Sarah said...

Thanks so much everyone!!

I actually already have the "lose it" app on my iPhone, so I started entering my info and food items in today!!

Thanks for the other ideas as well... I'll look into South Beach and also probably order the 30-day Shred DVD!

Drink warm water with lemon first thing in the morning to help cleanse your insides. I've been reading You Are What You Eat by Dr. Gillian McKeith and she recommends doing this to help with weight loss. My sister swore by it and (partially) followed Dr. McKeith's other "diet" suggestions along with exercise and lost 17 lbs in 3-4 weeks. I really sound like an infomercial, huh? Lol. You look great btw!
