Im a SP newbie. My 18 mth old twins are finally asleep, so im online trying to relax before going to bed, and i happen to have come across this website.
Since giving birth, ive lost 44 pounds(it's taken me 1 1/2 years, as ive had a few complications post birth, and its been a struggle!) (i gained 75 pounds with the pregnancy). I am still very much overweight, and would like to lose a further 55 pounds (rest of my pregnancy weight, and then some). I have only 4-5 months to do that in, so i need that added determination and focus, and thought SP and all your stories could help with that.
I am unable to join a gym, so all my efforts have involved me exercising 1/2 hour daily whilst the twins are napping (thinking of increasing the time by 15 mins as i feel like ive plateaued). After recovering from a strained back, i have recently started incorporating stomach crunches into my routine. Im scared to add any weights as i definitely dont need to bulk up. I am at that point where i need to make sure i keep toned given the large amount of weight im losing, however, im worried that if i up the resistance on my exercise equipment, that i'll just bulk right up. Has anyone else lost a significant amount of weight post pregnancy, with still a way to go? Would love to hear about what keeps you motivated, and what you did for exercise (apart from joining a gym - child minding is an issue for us)...
