An Upside to Downsizing

Since giving birth 9 months ago I've lost 60 pounds.

Why is this remarkable? I gained 35 pounds during the pregnancy. Aside from breastfeeding, I've done nothing to lose the weight. I even eat sweets. (Yeah, I know.
I'm losing points now.) As an act of contrition, I promise to lay off the cookie dough and snack pack pudding for, say, the next three blog posts.

But seriously, breastfeeding rocks. I think everyone should do it. Even men. [Har, har, har.]

Breastfeeding, though, isn't always a walk in the park. It's hard. Those first few weeks aren't blissful, beautiful, or stress-free. But once mom and baby get in sync, the benefits far outweigh the pitfalls. And I've lost 60 pounds! That's something to get excited about.
