2013- The year of change

My name is Michelle. I have been battling with weight issues since the birth of my first baby. I gained way to much weight in pregnancy and went from 125 lbs to 147 lbs. I got pregnant right away when my oldest was 3 months old and I gained another 50 lbs with that pregnancy putting me at about 170 after the birth. I had my third baby 18 months after and not even sure about how much I gained but I had a serious weight problem after he was born weighing in at 193. I lost 30 lbs in a year then ...

I had my third baby 18 months after and not even sure about how much I gained but I had a serious weight problem after he was born weighing in at 193. I lost 30 lbs in a year then had another baby.

I went through a divorce lost some weight and got a bit back in shape. I got remarried in 2009 and we got pregnant 3 months later. I gave birth in October of 2010 and I got pretty heavy with her too. I must just be one of those people that gains a lot during pregnancy. I had lost all of my pregnancy weight and got down to 186 lbs by 6 weeks postpartum. I don't know what happened but I gained 10 lbs and struggled to find time to exercise with a fussy baby and lack of sleep (plus 3 other children to care for). Now that she is getting a little older I am finding more time to do for me. I Currently weigh as of my last weigh-in 197.4 My first goal is to just lose 10 lbs. I have no time frame really, I just want to get there.



Update June 2012:

Ok well I got pregnant again in August of 2011 and just had my baby a month ago. I did a great job of controlling weight gain and diet this time with a total weight gain of 26 lbs. I am going to put my pre-pregnancy weight as my start weight and then will update again at the end of June. I will not be able to exercise for another 4 weeks because I had a c-section this time but because of diet change plus breastfeeding I actually weigh less now than I did before pregnancy!


January 2013:
So I had to stop exercising for a while. I had a lot of issues post c-section that made it painful to exercise. Then I got pregnant again but it was a tubal pregnancy and I had to have surgery which also meant I couldn't work out anymore. I am determined to put an end to fat Michelle THIS YEAR. I plan to buy a juicer next month and I have stopped eating meat ( except for fish). I gained a little bit but thankfully not more than a couple of lbs. which I expected since i just lost a pregnancy at 2 months. Anyway if at first you don't succeed try try again right?

Starting Fresh in 2013:
