So, it's been 8 weeks...

So, it's been 8 weeks for Brynn...
I can't believe how much she has changed these past two weeks! Not only does she look bigger {and fatter! :)} but she is talking, smiling, and even laughing so much more now! And boy do we love it!

During Carter's birthday BBQ on Sunday, I was able to capture Brynn just smiling and talking away to her daddy...
video

Sigh.

Here are a few pictures too...

Pretty girl =)

I have been slacking a little and still haven't taken Carter and Brynn for their next round of immunizations. Hopefully we can take them in the next week or so. Though it will be so sad to see them get their shots {I usually end up crying too} I am eager to see what they both weigh and what percentiles they will be in! I'll keep you posted.

So, it's been 8 weeks for Jenni...
Remember when I posted last Monday about being discouraged with my lack of weight loss on the 30 Day Shred? Well since that post, I have lost 7 POUNDS!!! Woooooo Hoooo! I was completely shocked when I stepped on the scale this weekend and saw that! The only thing that I changed was, instead of doing the 30DS workout everyday, I started doing it every other day. That's right... I started working out LESS and was able to lose MORE.

I'm not asking questions.

So, my post partum weight loss looks something like this...

Weight gained during pregnancy: 23lbs
Initial weight loss {10 days post partum}: -24lbs
Workout weight loss: -7lbs

Total: -8lbs
Goal: -17lbs to go

Whew... I have a long way to go, don't I? Yikes.

Baby steps.

Brynn is adorable! I think some pictures she looks just like Carter and then some she doesn't :) I can't believe she is 8 wks. already.

And yay for the weight loss! Have you been changing your eating habits too? I really need to step it up and lose weight too! Keep up the good work :)

Brynn is so beautiful! Congrats on your weight loss! That is awesome. Last week I started jillians micheals banish fat boost metabolism. I love it! Maybe i will do it every other day for even more weight loss!!??

You don't have far to go, really. I still have 27 to go to get to my pre-preg weight. But that's also my goal weight since I don't want to be smaller than that.

Brynn is adorable!

Could she be more gorgeous? I think no!

Congrats on the loss...I love it when less working out gets you better results :)

Suzanne said...

Congrats on the weight loss! You're really making me consider doing the shred, but I have a question. Do you think it would be too difficult for a person who pretty much has NEVER exercised?

Jill said...

Seriously cute baby. You know, some babies aren't super cute and you have to fib and say "oh, how cute!!" I'm not fibbing - she's cute:)

jenni said...

Aww, thanks everyone!

@ Suzanne- Because there are 3 levels to the Shred, I think it's perfect for someone who doesn't normally exercise! You can do Level 1 for as long as you feel comfortable and then move up to the next level when you're ready!

Oh my gosh, Jenni! She has changed so much. She is looking so girly with her long eyelashes and big smile! I love her.

Can you talk my hubby into letting me have another baby so we can see if the third time is a charm for a girl ;) I must start laying the foundation now because he is convinced 2 is enough!

Anyhoo, also HOORAY on the weight loss. I am still wanting to do something but I am scared I will start exercising and my milk supply will drop. But I have to get rid of this poochy tummy. I don't like it!!!
