Is the Scale Lyin' ?

So my mom took this week off to take care of me (and my house). I weighed myself on tuesday, and I weighed the same as i did when I was 9 months pregnant (minus what the baby weighs...)
But on Wednesday I thought to myself "Wow...My stomach looks a lot smaller today..." but I thought it was just me. My mom showed up at my house and said "Wow Carly look at how small your stomach is. you should go weigh yourself."
And so I did. I was 5 lbs. less than the day before! And my swollen feet were gone.
Thursday the same thing happened, 5 more lbs. less than the day before.
And today...
The same. thing. happened.
5 lbs. less.
I have to say I never thought it would happen.
15 lbs. in 3 days?
Weird topic to blog about, but I wanted to shout off this news on top of a mountain. But I didnt have a mountain I had a computer.

I did the same thing! It was crazy! I lost 10 (not counting Tegan weight) right away just do the all the water that I retained. And another 10 lbs followed...I loved it!

Oh man I remember that with Carmen, I loved losing like 6 lbs a day for like a week straight. It was awesome! Everyday I'd ask Lee "what did you do today? Oh, because I lost 6 pounds."

it didn't happen with Moseley though. With him I just lost the steady 1-2 lbs per week for like 30 weeks! So I was sweating thinking I might not be able to lose it (since with him it was fat rather than water).

Congratulations my beautiful niece. I just sat down to use the computer and found your blog open here. I know Aunty Ang is the one you typically here from so I thought I would surprise you. You and Josh are such an awesome couple and now a family with baby Kai. We Oler's here in Saratoga Springs wish you all the best and can't wait to see you again. We missed out last week but will try again this week.

Love you!! Uncle Jerry and Aunty Ang

Yeah, your body the day after baby is always a little shocking, but it changes SO much those first 6-8 weeks and hope returns. Congrats on the weight loss!
