For My Family!

I want to be healthy and have a long energetic life so I can enjoy my daughter growing up. My goal is to get back to a healthy BMI and maintain my weight between 125-135 pounds. I plan to lose weight slowly with a Volumetric, anti-cancer diet focusing on vegetables, fruit, beans, and whole grains, plus drinking plenty of water! I'll avoid sugar, salt, red meat, and fried foods. Another big thing I need to work on is getting exercise. My initial goal is to get outside for 30 minutes most days.

Welcome to SP! I noticed your goals/rewards on a message board and found them similar to my own. I have three boys and breastfed them all. I was fortunate to be an at-home mom during their early years and it was then when I discovered a walking routine that I still keep up ten years later. I had my boys approx. two years apart and I invested in a jogger stroller with each birth. Yes by the time my third son was born, I was walking through the neighborhood with a triple jogger stroller. Oh the stares I received because it was such a novelty.
So use this precious time with your sweet baby by making her a part of your workout routine. Babies also make great arm/leg weights. They so enjoy the bonding and feeling of being extended in air with a firm grip.
Best wishes and please let me know if I can be of help!
