I love outlet mall shopping. We have on an hour away that has a few good shops but the really good one is a little less than two hours. I went to the consignment store today (yes, again!) and got some more fall/winter stuff for the boys and a dress for Harper that will work with a ls shirt and leggings.

SHE was a good size. Dh opened her up and she was filled with eggs. Sorry if that's yucky to some of you. :/ We went on with the plan though and ate it for dinner. It was delish, fresh caught is the best.

We were just hit with torrential downpour of rain. Seriously, flashed our power, knocked down trees and flooded much of our town. And now the sun is shining and the boys and Chris went fishing again. Lol!

I tend to hold onto the last 10 lbs at the end of nursing and then well I get pregnant again. But with tanner I nursed until he was 18 months and I got down to my pre blu weight.

Re: August 11 - JULY CHATTER

I gained sooooo much with blu! I started at 137 which is skinny for me at 5'9. Well with blu I ended at 205!!!!! Did not loose it all when got pregnant with tanner and ended the same weight. Got all the way down and got pregnant with Peyton. Gained very slowly at first but ended at 185. Did not loose it all and got pregnant with Harper! Ended in the 190s

I am done with the massive weight gain and loss! It is exhausting!

But for some freak reason knock on wood I do not have stretch marks.

I tell everyone 9 months on 6 yrs and 4 kids off.

Allison I had no idea we were the same height. I also started out my first pregnancy at 131, WAY too skinny for us really tall ladies! I was 18 though, so really skinny was in. :/ Anyway, ended that pregnancy at 202 after massive swelling and preE. Lost some, but nursed for over a year and never got below 165. Then gained 17 with Dominic, lost that because he was ff after a few weeks. Then Nathan killed me again and I gained tons. Again, lost some but started Harpers pregnancy in the 180s and I gained 22. Although thats come off, I desperately want to lose and get to the 150s. It's been so long though, I don't know if it will ever happen. I feel too young to be in this body! And....I do have stretch marks on my belly.

Wow depressing much for early in the morning??

By the way, good morning!

Re: August 11 - JULY CHATTER



My lowest weight was during a stressful time in my 20s and I was 125 and it seriously was gross. So I think 137 and up is a nice healthy weight for me.

When I gained with blu I kept waiting for the dr to say something or tests to come back saying this or that but it never happened. I guess I was just hungry

The other day during the children's dentist apt I made the mistake of stepping on the scale just to see

Well it obviously wasn't what I wanted but not sure why I thought it would be less

I just need to get my butt in gear especially since I feel like exercise makes me happy but starting it is so difficult for me. esp when dh is in great shape. I eat healthy I just need to get the body moving.

Re: August 11 - JULY CHATTER

I'd give my right boob for an extra 3" !! lol I'm only 5'6". When I met dh I was early 20's, 125lb and in great shape! As we settled down I changed jobs, and slowly packed on the pounds prior to getting pg. I think it was 50lbs prior to pg1. and I've just got bigger with each one. I've never lost any weight with any pg. Luckily I've not gained much with any of them. I'm only up 8lbs so far with this one but I'm weighing in at 213.... um yeah. Nursing doesn't help me at all either. I'm determined this time to shed all this though. I think knowing I will never get pg again will help. I'm going to juice regularly as well, and work out at home.
