Our newest baby girl, aka NBG.
Me at my best in 2005 (approx 150 lbs with mostly muscle). A month later, I started gaining weight.

I just had my second baby in January, so now I'm hitting the diet & exercise hard once again. Still recovering from a rather difficult delivery with some embarrassing side effects, but I've added some serious supplements under the guidance of my naturopath. Hopefully things will start looking up! Hitting or exceeding 10,000 steps every day, too.
I struggled with weight all my life, then I got very fit in my early 20s. After a cross-country move, a hormone treatment (that caused a 70lb gain in 6 mos), & 2 babies, I'm the largest I've ever been, & I hate it. I was finally starting to lose some weight when I got pregnant with baby #2. Surprise! Now that I have my body back (sort of...we EBF), I'm excited to start exercising again & see what this ol' body of mine can do. I would really love to be fit & fabulous again!
Main goal: Lose 100 pounds

I joined 5% challenge. We have a set period of time to try to lose 5% of our body weight. I've joined in before, but sat this last one out. There are daily posting requirements so I'm a little worried about the time commitment, but since the rest of my team will be relying on me too I'll be accountable to follow through.
No zumba for me. I'm a little sad. The time for Curves/Zumba changed so I can't make it anymore, and the regular Zumba class moved to the junior college gym and they started charging college tuition for it. I was paying per class before and that was fine, but no way am I paying for a semester credit to go to a class once a week. I have Zumba for Wii, but it's not the same.
I hope you're doing well and the sickies have left your house.

and after my comment just the other day about not having time for a challenge I went ahead and joined one. Not my brightest decision maybe, but we'll see how it goes.
I hope you start getting some sleep soon. My little guy didn't sleep through until he was a year old. Hubby and I were like a pair of zombies that whole time.
The treadmill sounds like a good place to start. You can control the intensity and build up as it feels right for you.

I was thinking of you today and that it is good for us to encourage each other because we are in the same exact place with baby and fitness. I tried on my jeans today...bad news...even the fat pants...the pants that were big...are too tight and they never reached my belly! I didn't gain as much weight with Madeline either. I have been using my exercise bike this week as it does not hurt my incision. I have started with 10 minutes and moved up to 15 minutes. I also increased my resistance a bit. I will move up to 20 minutes and see how that does. My eating needs to be WAY better too. I just took out a notebook to write my food down as I can't always get to the computer to log it in. If it is written down, I can log it in before bed (or sometime in the night).
How are you feeling? Will you need surgery for any prolapses or will they heal on their own? Hope all is well.
How is your little one? Madeline goes for her first set of shots tomorrow. NOT looking forward to that.

Tracking is definitely eye opening. I've become convinced that there is calorie inflation going on. It seems like I used to get a whole lot more food for my calories.
It's been a rough year around here, and my weight is actually up so they weight loss hasn't been successful. I'm still here though, and things are starting to settle a bit so I'm hoping to really focus on my calories now. I don't know about joining a challenge, I'm kind of strapped for time right now. This is always my busiest time at work.
