No, not me. If you must know, I gained more like 4 pounds over the last 4 days. I know, I know. I’m supposed to be losing weight, not gaining. But the last 10 days have been nothing short of a Food Fest, beginning with the 3 lb. box of See’s Chocolates that my dear, sweet in-laws gave me as a baby gift. All dark chocolate, baby. I guess labor & delivery has more benefits than just a sweet baby.
But I’m not the only one gaining weight. Maybe the chocolate is making my milk richer, because this little angel is now 8 lbs. even, up from 7.5 a week ago. And this was an early morning weigh in, after her traditional all-night fast. Since she’s gaining at the rate of an ounce per day, she might have weighed even more by this evening.
Credit where credit is due: my in-laws knew about See’s spectacular, wonderful delicious chocolate because my hubby offered it up as a suggestion when they wanted to know what they could get me. And my hubby knew about See’s scrumptious, delectable, unmatched-by-any-other chocolates because my grandparents have sent us a box every year for Christmas since I was little.
