GD Diet

I’ve had a surprising weight loss from this pregnancy.  I only gained 12 lbs (compared to the 25-30 lbs I gained with Natalie).  My whole third trimester was on a diet to lower my blood sugar levels due to the gestational diabetes.

I’m now about 15 lbs below my prepregnancy weight.  I’m only about 5 lbs heavier than when I got married which is just insane to me.  I’m even below my pre-Natalie-pregnancy weight.  After having Natalie, I couldn’t get lower than 5 lbs above my prepregnancy weight.

Yes, in the last few weeks, I’ve lost 27 lbs.  Call it the “have gestational diabetes while pregnant” diet.

I have to say it’s pretty awesome…then again, who knows if I’ll be able to maintain this at all.  Since giving birth, I’ve been helping myself to the treats/snacks I craved but couldn’t eat during my last trimester…but hopefully once things settle, I can adopt my previous “lower carb” diet.  My goal is to stay relatively where I am by the time I go back to work.

    I’m allowed to be a little jealous of this, right? 😉 I noticed you were looking damn fine on your anniversary date night with Matt!
