My mom and my sister had the same reaction when they saw my profile- see below:
Out right laughter. We had picked Kelsy up at the airport, took her immediately to the cheesecake factory and when she saw me get out of the car she couldn't stop laughing. This is why I didn't go to church during the last month of my pregnancy- I couldn't fit in a pew much less a dress.
I put on 65 lbs of pregnancy weight. Ridiculous, I know. I stopped exercising, I ate what ever I wanted and for one full week I lived off of peanut butter and celery.
In the hospital I had a grand total of 15 bags of IV fluid (so the bill tells me). I had so much water pumped into me that I left the hospital weighing the exact same weight as when I entered- despite having an 8 lb human removed from my uterus.
I've since gone on Nutrasystem and it's no surprise why people lose weight on this program- it takes like crud. You don't want to eat because your options are so unappealing. There is no way Marie Osmond actually eats this cardboard.
I have lost 30 lbs of my pregnancy weight (it would be a lot easier to get excited if I didn't have another 35 to go) but don't hold your breath thinking I'll post some 'after' pictures.
