I just recently had a baby and I am trying to fit into my prepregnancy jeans again. Is it possible?!? I sure hope so!

MY JOURNEY
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
OCTOBER 13, 2007:
Highest weight during pregnancy: 198 lbs
A lot of it was water retention. I swelled HUGE!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
NOVEMBER 1, 2007:
Weight: 183 lbs (down 15 lbs)
Lost all excess water weight and am ready to start losing the fat!
I hope to reach my pre-preggo weight by my birthday (March 3).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
FEBRUARY 4, 2007:
Weight: 171 lbs
A change in goals! No longer looking to reach a certain number (on the scale or in pant size), just striving to change my lifestyle (and hopefully weightloss will follow).
This is my plan starting today:
*Stay close to a 40c/30p/30f ratio.
*Start to eat clean.
*Drink 96 oz water daily (account for breastfeeding and exercise)
*Take my vitamins daily (B-50 in am for energy and multi-vitamin in pm, as well as Omega-3)
*Work on relaxing more (I am starting yoga today!).
*Get more sleep (nap when baby is sleeping, regardless if the dishes need washing or the laundry needs folding).
*Work out when I can, but not obsess over it.
*Not weigh every day!

My Goals:
I know its bad to not have goals. So I guess my goals include:
♥being healthier
♥being happier
♥being the best mom I can

I want to lose weight, but right now being a good mom is the most important thing to me! I was getting too stressed out trying to reach a number on the scale or pant size. It isn't about that anymore. Its about being healthy.



My Program:
Work out when I can.

Drink at least 80 oz of water a day.

Eat more whole grains, fruits, veggies, and lean meats. Cut out all processed foods and sugar.

Relax. Life isn't about looking good, its about feeling good!



Personal Information:
My name is Amanda and I am from central Utah.

My baby girl was born 10-13-2007 at 1 pm. I named her Madison. She weighed 5 lbs 10 oz and was 18 1/2 inches long with an 11 1/2 inch head. I ♥ my baby girl!!!

    Hey - thanks for the comment on my Blog. I appreciate the support and encouragement. My daughter is 2 and a half and this is her second surgery. She was born with a Brachial Plexus injury during birth. You can check out my blog "Life Happens" to read more about that, if you want to.

    Just curious what Maggie was going to surgery for? Is this the last one or is there more?

    Hang in there, girl. Sounds like you have an aweful lot on your plate. Perhaps when your mom gets there, she can watch the baby for a bit while you unwind with a nice relaxing bubble bath. It's worth a shot at least, right?

    Hi, thanks for commenting on my blog. I know what you mean about taking the weekends to relax. One thing that's hard for me is that my husband isn't at work and gets to relax, but I don't get that break. But I just don't feel like working hard while he is getting it easy - I want to relax too! The hardest thing about not having junk food around is that my husband can't handle that. So we have it in the house for him, and I end up giving in eventually. I really wish I could do that though. I guess the next best thing would be to make sure I have lots of good "dessert substitutes," as I like to call them. It's when I run out of those that I start getting into the junk food stash. Thanks for the encouragement. I'm not in UT now. I went to BYU but I live in Northern Nevada now. Similar weather though. :)

    Hello! Just wondering how things are going? I stopped the what did you eat today thing. But just wanted to see how the baby is doing? Hope everything is well.
