stop watching the scale!!

I'm officially at my pre-pregnancy weight.  Do my pre-pregnancy clothes fit?  NO!  (at least, most do not).

My boobs are giant, and I have a ton of loose skin hanging around my butt, hips and tummy.  I'm a totally different shape than I was before, and yet, I'm the same weight.

On another note, my arms are absolutely fabulous!  Doing dude-curls all day every day has toned them right up!!!

i have to weigh in weekly for the weight loss thingy that prompted this whole thing. i wouldn't be even touching a scale if it weren't for that. but i started the weekly postings as a record of my weigh-ins....and it's making me annoyed. nick's commented that i look better, even, so i know i'm making progress, i just hate that stupid scale.

which is really too bad by FlightTest (2.00 / 0) #6 Tue Dec 18, 2007 at 07:32:04 PM EST
... which I also know you know.

I think the take-away here (did I really just say that .... **shudder**) is that "weight-loss" programs are only reasonable if you're actually more than moderately over weight. Otherwise, the combination of diet and exercise is going to prove disappointing when you step on the scale.

At this point, you losing weight might actually be a BAD thing. You're growing muscle, any weight loss might be a loss of muscle, not fat.

Keep up the good work, TRY not to obsess over the scale. If it cause problems for your "team" (It was some sort of team weight loss thing right?), then oh well. You getting healthier, which you are obviously doing, is far more important than some "team" weigh-in.

When I was nursing my kids, they weren't so much an erogenous zone.

This really isn't the type of information that us guys want to know about.

Rather tarnishes the fantasy doncha think?

I find the thought of you using a breast pump in Ronald Reagan Airport to be strangely erotic.

It's not unheard of... by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #15 Wed Dec 19, 2007 at 12:05:11 PM EST
speaking in a statistical sense, some women even become aroused during nursing. While this sounds creepy, there's probably a sound evolutionary reason for a woman with newborns to be interested in keeping her mate happy.

The only reason I know this by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #17 Wed Dec 19, 2007 at 12:59:44 PM EST
is because I read an article, years ago, about how a child services rep was trying to take a woman's kids away from her because she told the rep nursing made her horny and the rep decided she was a pedo.

And I love you, too, in a purely I-have-to-love-everybody-it's-a-religious-thing-like-wearing-a-yarmulke  sort of way.

;-P

Same reason that by ambrosen (2.00 / 0) #24 Fri Dec 21, 2007 at 12:44:34 PM EST
Having a good solid shit is mildly erotic for men, I guess.

Well formed stools being a desirable trait to exhibit.

If you are doing any sort of weight training as part of your exercise routine do not use the scale as a measurement tool. Get a nice trusty tape measure and record inches lost.

Download this spreadsheet, have Nick take the measurements, enter them into the spreadsheet and it'll calculate your BF %.
