In one year [since Willow was born], I've lost 42 pounds. That's all the baby weight, plus some. I've gone down one dress/top size, and three pants sizes from my pre-pregnancy size. Shedding nearly a pound-a-week on average without trying is amazing.
Thank you breastfeeding.
Yesterday and today were landmarks. I went running. While I was running, I was surprised at how easy it was. Maybe because it's been so long, or because the last time I ran I was heavier, but I remembered running to be more unpleasant. After Willow was born, the last thing I felt like doing was running. But it wasn't that bad.
Mind you, I'm not in shape, so I expected to die.
Because the truth is, I haven't exercised in two years.
