Is this okay?
I appreciate all of the feedback! I hadn't realized but I am lacking in protein and I need to find some more foods that I can eat to get it. I've been slipping a little on my diet. I'm almost always staying within my calories but I am not eating as healthy as I should.
As soon as I posted this, I "gained" a pound. I don't know if I thought I had lost it and really hadn't (tricky water weight thing) or if I actually gained a pound. I don't know how...I haven't been eating over my calories. That is why they say "don't weigh every day" and also why they tell you NOT to expect a big loss each week.
I will try to take your advice and not get discouraged...I know logically if I keep total control on what I'm eating and exercise, I will have to lose weight eventually. It's just hard....it's as much a psychological thing as it is physical. Of coarse everyone here knows that, I'm sure you all have probably felt that way before too.

Is this okay?
This is not a typical worry but I am wondering if I am losing weight too fast. I haven't been at this very long and I know it's much easier when you first start AND if you are far from your healthy weight but I've heard so much about NOT losing more than 2lbs a week. From last Friday until yesterday I lost 3 lbs, which is not really that much but from yesterday morning to this morning, I lost a pound. I am not doing anything unhealthy. I am eating 1500 calories a day, exercising something like 1-2 hours a day (cardio and strength) and drinking about 6 bottles of water, which is FAR from what I did before. It's a HUGE change from my life before trying to lose weight. So is it still not a good thing? I'm sure it will slow down soon, everyone says it does. Of coarse I want to lose as much as I can as quickly as possible but I just want to make sure I'm doing it safely. And I need to add that I am okay with this being a Life Change...I am not planning on going back to old eating habits and laying around on the couch. Thanks in advance for your help!

Work outs for 2nd floor tenants
I've lived above someone in an apartment before and I hate that everything you do, you have to think if it's going to make too much noise because of the people downstairs. I've been doing Tiffany Rothe workouts on YouTube. They are actually really fun and they WORK! I do them after the kids are in bed sometimes so I know they are quiet. My elliptical is too squeaky to use after they go to bed.

Diastasis Recti?
Well if it's painful then I'm good to go because I am not in pain! You're only 5 lbs away from your goal? Way to go! I have a long way to go but I have absolutely let myself go this whole time I've been having children. Honestly, I've never been in shape, even when I was thin I wasn't what you would call "in shape". I'm feeling the way you are, my belly will probably never look great from carrying 3 kids but I guess that's the price you pay, right? I'll still keep working hard and see where I can get, improvement is good, even if it's not perfection.

Diastasis Recti?
I've had 3 children and I have a lot of work to do getting back in shape. I am not really sure if I have diastasis, I've done the "check" they tell you to do but I can't tell. When I tighten my abs, I think I can feel tightening in the middle too but I also find it really unlikely that I carried 3 children and had no separation of my abs. My last child was born a year ago, is it possible it closed up if I had it? Or is it possible I do have it and am having a hard time telling because of the extra pounds I have? I would hate to be doing tons of ab workouts and making it worse if I do have it.
