Before and After

For months I've been posting pictures of my ever-expanding waist. So now, if you'll indulge me for just a moment, here's a picture of the shrinkage that has occurred.


On the day I delivered the boys, I had gained 42 pounds and measured 48 1/2 inches around. When I left the hospital, I was already 4o pounds lighter. (Remember, I delivered 16 1/2 pounds of baby!) When I was at the doctor's office last Friday, 16 days after delivery, I weighed 3 pounds less than when I got pregnant.
But, for the sake of comparison, I'll leave you with this video, which we took about an hour before we went to the hospital to have the boys. I affectionately refer to it as, "How Do You Steer This Thing?"

Just checking in on you. Glad to hear that you are ok! Amazing video. I didn't take pictures for the last 6 weeks I was pregnant and now I regret it.

Call if you need me!

Wow! Your mom was right, the pictures really didn't do it justice. The video sure does. Congrats on the return of your waist!
