    Randa, this week in DC has been GLORIOUS! We have had the windows open every day and night and it has been breezy and cool. It feels like New England. I heard it’s supposed to rain and get hot again this weekend. 🙁

    Allie, you are looking good! I knnow the weight gain from having a baby is slow to melt (if you’re doing it right) But I can surely see your body coming back, better than ever (read: those mommy curves).

    Looking great! And you lost that baby fat QUICK! Curious, is it cooler in DC? In Ga, it’s too hot to even consider wearing long sleeves let a long a scarf!

    YOu look hot. First the top is genious, I am going out looking for one like that today. Second,your hair looks so different parted that way. It is amazing how little things make such a difference. I get more ideas from you than from a magazine.

    I can’t believe how glam and gorgeous you look in your car-interior photos. How do you DO that?

    Oh it is still there. I gained a hair over 50 lbs and still have almost 20 to go. Granted a BUNCH are in these massive breastfeeding boobs, but a lot is everywhere else.

    Not much – I haven’t exercised much more than a hike or two on weekends with the baby and the dogs. Even then they have lately been more like walks. We try to do at least one hour-long walk per weekend and walk when we have to go to market, to pick up takeout when we’re too busy to make dinner, to the farmers market.

    Because I am breastfeeding I am trying to make sure I eat healthy food. No sodas, no HFCS, no crazy dyes and chemicals when possible. But I didn’t do a lot of that before. I drink a LOT of water (at least 64 oz at work and another 16 oz at least at night and like 8 in the AM).

    I had a ravenous appetite until a month or two ago when it normaled out to how it was pre-pregnancy. That has helped a lot with getting the weight off – instead of eating by habit, stopping to listen to my body. I eat oatmeal almost every AM for breakfast (helps with milk production) and add flax oil, nutritional yeast and some fiber to it. For lunch I usually bulk up with soup and salad or sandwich and often a treat like a brownie or cookie. Dinners I eat on small plates or bowls so if I am truly hungry I have to go back into the kitchen for seconds. We do a lot of fresh vegetables, stir fries, grilling, etc.

    I think also the lessened amount of alcohol helps. I still enjoy a beer or glass of wine from time to time but I don’t down a few with friends every Saturday night like I used to. Don’t like to pump and dump, and also these days it only makes me sleepy, not tipsy 🙂

    I like that look on you. I really like those jeans on you.

    Just out of curiosity: how did you manage to get your pregnancy weight off (besides breastfeeding, that is?) You look great.
