Donated Breastmilk

Other Mothers’ Milk Pregnancy Information, Pregnancy Calendar Week by Week, Tools at Fit Pregnancy

I know this is unrelated to weight loss and my band but I want everyone to know about donated breastmilk. I did not make enough milk to feed Macy but I was lucky enough to find several mothers willing to pump and donate their milk to Macy. Macy was a breastmilk baby for over 9 months and received all the benefits of breastmilk even though I could not give it to her.

Question of the day:

How often do you weigh yourself? Why?

In the beginning of my band journey I was weighing daily and when I wouldn't see a loss, I would get so damn irritated. So I stopped and went to a weekly weigh-in...similar to WW. Well, I would sneak a peek at the scale an additional day or two...but, that's a secret...shhhh! I kinda want to go back to weighing daily or every other day because when I see that loss it encourages me to keep going but on the other hand, when I don't see that loss, I get upset and depressed. It's fudged up, I know!

I was sooooo excited for my weigh-in today because my personal trainer said she could see that I was thinner and I "felt" a tad thinner and what did the scale show? Oh...wait for it, wait for it...


Yep, that's all!

Now I know I have been working out a lot and am building muscle and therefore I may be losing inches so I am not too terribly upset with the scale, even though I still hate the little bitch.

So, let's sum up this rambling post. I want to know what all you other bloggers do about your weigh-ins. I will ultimately do what works for me but I want to hear from you all and weigh (no pun intended) my options.

Over and Out!
