Let's Weigh In

It's been a while since I blogged about my weight gain progress. In fact, it's been over 6 months since I gave you an update. Oops.

Although it's mostly because my last update back in April told you all that I was up to 115 lbs, but then I lost weight and was back down to 108 lbs. I didn't want to tell you all that since I was sad that it had happened. I figured if I didn't admit it, it wasn't true.

Alas, that is not how things work around here. Tis a shame.

Back to my weight gain. I'm pretty sure that 115 lbs thing was a total fluke since I didn't stay at that weight for more than a week. By mid-summer, I was bordering more around 111 lbs and then I went back down to 108 lbs after our motorcycle accident. I weighed myself consistently throughout the few short weeks I was pregnant and was balancing around 110 lbs. After my miscarriage and D&C, I didn't weigh myself for a few weeks because I was just too scared to see that the scales had most likely gone down.

So I waited until after the food-filled Quebec Thanksgiving weekend to weigh myself again and I was thrilled to see that I hadn't lost weight with the miscarriage. Or at least if I had, it had all be gained back during thanksgiving weekend.

Monday morning is my weigh-in day and as of this week, I am sitting at a respectful 113 lbs.

I am thrilled with this and happy to be keeping on the weight. I still don't think I'll meet my 10 lb weight gain goal by the end of 2013, but I have at least made progress.

Stay tuned for more health related posts in the next few weeks, as some changes are going on around here.


  1. Yay for weight gain and yay for healthy changes! :)

  2. Oh if only i could donate some of mine to you!!!

  3. Thats great, Jenn! Even if you don't meet your goal (which is understandable with everything you've been through) each little bit is a victory.

  4. Anne - If only it worked that way. :P

    Stasy - Thanks for the encouragement. I am doing pretty good, considering the events of the fall.
