My knee healed pretty well and I was back to the gym and losing again. The weight loss kept my PCOS symptoms on the down low and we ended up with the surprise of a lifetime - baby #4! Owen was born December 4th, 2012. :) I didn't gain as much with him as I did with the others (right around 35-40 lbs), so hopefully it won't be too bad getting it back off!
Right now, I'm working on juggling home life with 4 kids ages 5 and under. I don't get to the gym a ton, but I am still taking Zumba classes and doing Pilates. I've lost about half of the weight gained during pregnancy. I'm losing about 1 lb a week, which is slower than I'd like, but I am nursing. :/ I'm hopeful that if I stick with it, I'll be able to lose another size by my birthday.

I tore my meniscus and had to have emergency knee surgery in September. I'm still in a leg brace and not allowed to really do much. I am doing my physical therapy, both at home and in office. Obviously, the surgery ruined my chances of making my weight loss goal by Sophie's birthday...
On the bright side, I'm not gaining, and I'm only 6 lbs away from the goal I was trying to make by November. As soon as they clear me for real exercise again (possibly January/February), I'll pick up where I left off and be one hot mama, lol.
I'm back in almost all of my pre-baby clothes, so not too shabby! ;-)

I hit my first goal of being under 200 in June!
I'm still working at getting the rest of my baby weight off. It feels like it's taking forever! I have a really hard time losing weight while nursing, so that's probably a big part of it. Sophie is 8 months old now and just weaned. I'm already noticing a difference in appetite and ability to shed pounds. :) I'm still on track to be my pre-baby size by her first birthday.
My plan of attack is to continue taking Zumba classes and stick to watching my carbs and portion sizes. I'd like to get more gym time in when I can also.

Sophie was born November 7th, 2010.
I gained A LOT of weight with her. Much more than I had hoped to gain - like double, ugh. I'm now back to the gym and trying to lose the baby weight. I've lost almost 20 lbs since the baby was born, leaving 30-something to go.
Seeing how far I have to go is hard for me. I worked SO hard to lose weight before I got pregnant, and it's like starting all over again. The small comfort is that I have lost large amounts of weight in the past, and kept it off until I got pregnant, so I CAN do this. I just have to find the motivation and work hard.
My first goal is to get back out of the 200's and never go back to being that big again! My second goal is to get back to pre-pregnancy weight/size (175-180, size 10-12). Once I reach that milestone, I'll be pretty happy. I think ultimately I'll try to get down to 150's-160's, but that's far away right now.
I'm a lot rounder than I wanted to be, but Sophie is precious and totally worth it. :) The weight WILL come off. I just have to keep telling myself that and try to be patient.
