25 down 25 to go - July 25, 2007

I've lost 25 lbs in the past 9 days! Woo Hoo!! Now I just have 25 lbs to go, lol :) If you count the 10 lbs I never lost after having Elijah, I've got 35 lbs to lose... I'm happy to have my own feet back, and not the swollen sausages I had for the last few weeks of pregnancy AND the first 5 days after giving birth. They are still sore from being so swollen! I'm still wearing my maternity clothes... nothing else feels comfortable yet. I knew I'd be wearing the maternity shorts until it came time to wear jeans, but I didn't expect to still be wearing the shirts! I'm tired of them, so I'll have to give something else a try soon!
Leah is starting to stay awake a little bit more now, and she's not nursing quite as constantly anymore. When we came home from the hospital, I estimated she was latched on about 18 hours a day. I think she's eating about an hour or two less each day. Tomorrow is Leah's first doctor's appointment, and she should be almost back up to her birth weight. My guess is that she'll be well over 10 lbs at this point!
