Just a quick note to report some success -- I weighed in this morning below 170, finally. At 169, I am at the same weight as my highest non-pregnancy-related weight. In fact, I weighed 169 when I got married.
Now, I just have to keep pushing on, and when the kids are well (everyone is coughing) start some Zumba. It has been highly recommended to me so I think I will give it a shot. I'd like to be in the 165-167 range by the end of the month.
