The Next Step...

Hello all!

I know, I haven't written in a while. For those of you passing through, or follow but don't personally know me, I had the baby. Jacob Thomas Kestner was born June 24 at 10:16pm weighing 6 pounds, 4.3 ounces! I had to be induced because my blood pressure was getting high as well as Jake's movements were starting to slow down. They induced me at about 10:30 the night before, so almost 24 hours of labor...but I only pushed for 5 minutes! Our little family is doing wonderfully...Mike was off for two weeks, but he started work again last night (much to his chagrin). I'm still off for about four more weeks and then (unfortunately) I, too, must rejoin the living, working world.

As for the of right now I'm still going to keep up with it, going back to it's original purpose of tracking my weight loss. Hopefully, I'll keep going, and not slack off as I had been towards the end. I don't have my gym membership anymore, but I'm thinking I may go to mom and dad's after work on some days, seeing as they have some exercise equipment. Not to mention, maybe by going there I'll have someone to nag me into doing it! (sorry, Mom!)

I'm not going to "officially" start until I go back to work, which is when the posts will start. But I will leave you with this...My highest weight when I was pregnant was 283. I weighed myself a couple days ago (just for curiosity's sake) and I had dropped down to 257. Not too shabby!
