Update: I'm down 5.5lbs since my doctor's appointment which puts me at 39.5lbs above my pre-pregnancy weight. I'm not even trying to lose weight, just eating clean and doing the FYM workouts!

Oh, my maternity belt totally rocks! I did a whole week's worth of grocery shopping last night (here I thought I was going to get in and get out but apparently everyone else had the same idea because Walmart was PACKED last night at 10pm![img]smileys/smiley3.gif[/img]) and had no pain or cramping.

My blood sugar is stable, I feel better over all, my farting problem[img]smileys/smiley9.gif[/img] is gone[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img], and I haven't had any fainting spells! I'm really happy if you can't tell[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]Edited by: FV Mom

WHOO HOOO!!! Iam sure losing those pounds have put a huge smile on yourface!!!
I lost 30lbs with my daughter and 25lbs with my son because I was diabetic with both and had to be on a special diet controlled by a nutritionist! (I also started off plus size to begin with...LOL) sounds sorta similar to what you are doing...clean eating, very monitored portions, etc....
Keep up the great work!

What the Samuel L Jackson in going on here!?!?!?!?!*Warning: Hormonally charged vent follows.....

AAAAHHH!At this very moment I am convinced that scientists hardly know anything about the human body and think some of this stuff they make up as they go along![img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]


Well I am now UP 3 pounds!!! What the heck happened? How do you GAIN weight eating clean AND in a caloric deficit?

Here's the deal....I don't look fatter! Or maybe I'm fooling myself or something I dunno, but I also look leaner in my face, arms, and tummy area. What then can it be? How can I gain 3 pounds in 3 days!?!?!?! The biggest change has been adding in the FYM workouts. I had only done 2 (1 resistance and 1 interval) when I posted this thread, and as of yesterday I've done 4 (3 resistance, 1 interval). Could it just be atrophied muscle returning? I haven't done any kind of resistance training really since I learned I was pregnant back in October....

Here's my calories since the 15th:

3/15 - 2340
3/16 - 2051
3/17 - 1859

I'm 5'8 and was 197 on the 15th...what the heck happened? I didn't eat anything bad with the exception of a small (300 calories) pop corn chicken from DQ (no Jen I didn't have any ice cream[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]) Everything else has consistently been lean meats, fruits, veggies, low fat cheeses, etc., the same stuff I was eating to lose 5lbs. Maybe I should just be grateful that I'm not still gaining weight at the insane rate I was, but I'm just pissed right now!

Depressed and back at 200lbs.....

Muscle weighs more than fat. The 3lbs could be gained muscle from the workouts.
