2 Month Physical Progress

Two Months (10 weeks)

Physical body changes after pregnancy - 10 weeks
 
Stats
Month: Two
Height: 5'8"
Weight last Month: 142
Current Weight: 138.8
Total Weight Lost Postpartum: 19.2
Body Fat Percentage: 25%
 
I'm two weeks late in taking my pictures and posting my stats. I'll fess up and admit that I delayed posting because I had gained weight. I went on vacation for almost two weeks and the scale reflected the eating out and the nightly s'mores that we had around the fire at our cabin.
 
My vanity got in the way and I didn't want to take pictures or weigh myself until I had two weeks of getting back into a regular routine. I will work on my mentality of being more open and honest on the blog. My goal is to get back on schedule and on track at the 12 weeks post pardom mark.
 
In physical progress reflections, I can see a difference in the softness of the tummy pooch as more of the bloating has shed. The saddlebag and back of upper thighs are my most troublesome part. I've been running, so I'm hoping to see some improvement in this area soon. My boobs have adjusted to breast feeding, as well. I don't miss the uncomfortable engorgement but I do miss the amazing cleavage I was rocking for a while. I'm still up two cup sizes and enjoying, what I feel are, more balanced proportions.
 
I finally got out of my maternity bottoms and am wearing normal clothes again. I can't fit into my pre-pregnancy size clothing (size 6) but am in some of my larger sized clothing comfortably (size 10 and somtimes size 8).
 
I had gotten down to a size 6 last year with regular running after being at a size 8 for about 2 years. (My highest was a size 12 in my early twenties during the adjustment to working full time and regaining the wedding weight I had lost during the first year of marriage.)
 
Plan
 
Fitness: I will continue running three times a week and work on increasing my distance and lowering my overall pace. I would like to incorporate more interval training to assist in increasing speed and fat buring.
 
Diet: I started logging my eats in MyFitnessPal.com yesterday and will continue tracking my calories in and out to get a better grasp on my daily caloric needs to support running and breast feeding without over doing it by kidding myself that I can eat whatever I want without it showing up on the scale.
