Congratulations on the forthcoming event! I've got two girls and four grandchildren. They get worse as they get older, but, absolutely worth it!

I've got a rowing machine and do three 20 second blasts flat out over about 5 minutes with a little loosening up and cooling down every other day. I walk about a mile each way into town for shopping most days.
I don't know if it's coincidence, the scales lying or actually true, but, it looks as though I have lost 4lbs in a week.
I am keeping my scales as they can be a guide as to what is happening. Like you, I will feel the way clothes fit and how I feel.
Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
