It's all about the Numbers

So, I had no idea, absolutely no idea when I wrote this post a few months back- how soon I would hit this landmark - It's my 200th post!

You can't see them all because I've taken off quite a few, but just believe me when I say it's my 200th post. Pretty cool, huh?

The other interesting number game is called 'Y's incredibly boring and unnecessary update on her pregnancy weight gain and post pregnancy weight loss'.

The deal is this:

a. Put on obscene amounts of weight during pregnancy - go from 56 kilos to 80 kilos - 8 kilos higher than recommended by your doctor. Not good.
b. Give birth - and lose 6 kilos in one day. Pretty good.
c. Breastfeed and don't sleep at all - and lose 8 kilos in a mere two months. Very good.
d. Stay at home with your baby, feed and take care of her, obsess about your weight, work out everyday - and don't lose a single gram for seven bloody months. Not so good.
e. Join work but continue to run home to feed the baby - and lose 2 kilos in two weeks. Very, very good. Indeedy.

Yeah. I know I said I wouldn't talk about my weight anymore. I even tried to inspire a revolution, the 'No-talky-about-my-weighty-booty' movement - but barely a couple of you agreed. So really, if you think about it, it is kind of all your fault that I'm back to obsessing. Your fault. As usual.

But yay! 200 posts! Thank you, thank you. You've all been wonderful.

Air kisses, Mwah, Mwah.


  1. heyy... congrats!!
    i just posted my 250th post... quite kewl!
    and heyy... i supported u on the mini-movement! :P
    i'm still at it, actually! obsessing about not obsessing, i mean.

  2. Obsess away! About the weight I mean.

  3. and when peanut starts walking, be prepared to go back to what you weighed as a teen. not so yay! trust me...

    and many cheers on 200th post.

  4. yay, Y! way to go!
    and what sur said is sooo true, the pounds seem to be shedding now that noo wants to walk everywhere. not independently, so i have to follow her pushcart or hold her hands as she explores e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.!

  5. Happy 200th! Seems just yesterday that you were at 100 - should go hang my head in shame

  6. There's a saying. A watched weight never drops. Or something like that.

  7. Y,

    congrats on the 200th! Just wait until work deadlines hit you, and Peanut starts walking - the weight just melts off! Working out - bah! Didnt do a thing for me, except make me hungry! Stress is my friend!


  8. Y,
    200? Yay!

    The work+breastfeeding is an awesome weightloss scheme. And the moms are right. With Nibbles learning to crawl,stand and wiggly-walk overnight, the only relief I get is a look at the scale. Oh, and not childproofing the house is a bonus workout.

    Now's the time to get that mango kulfi, mango milkshake, mango ice-cream, mango madness...

  9. Really? 200 already? Well done, duh duh. As they say - time flies when you're having fun, mocking your friends and telling the world what it's like to raise a child.
