It's Tuesday, weigh in day and I am still at 199 pounds ( I wanted to get to 198) but instead of being sad about this, I am holding myself accountable. I am still making this post, because I know if I stick with it, every Tuesday no matter what the scale says, I will succeed.
I am feeling strong, and motivated. I found some amazing quotes to share.
I think making goals specific is vital for weight loss, that is why every week I aim for 2 pound weight loss,this is slow and healthy and that is the key!
Even a slow weight loss, even if it's one pound adds up and makes a difference.
Lets do this, I am ready to do this. YOU can do this.
See you next Tuesday, time to step it up and eat better. GOAL- 2 pounds this week! I am going to do this.

Baby boy will be 2 weeks on tuesday.
When I weighed myself last while pregnant I was 40 weeks 4 days and 223 pounds.
As of this morning I am 199 pounds
That is a total of 24 pounds lost so far.
I am still gradually losing the water weight/ blood weight among other things because I was 202 a few days ago,
I am still eating lost of food, only I am loading up on more healthy choices. ( I am breastfeeding)
Yesterday I bought some 2 pound weights for my arms, for very light work out and a pedometer to track how much I walk, which I will slowly increase with time, and hoping start jogging after my 6 week check up,,
I am hopefully to make it into the 180s before my family reunion trip.
That gives me about 5 weeks to lose 10 pounds, so I really feel I can do it, especially because some of the weight is still falling of from pregnancy.
I think once baby is 4 weeks, I will really know how hard I have to work to lose the weight.
RIGHT NOW, I am just grateful to be less than 200 pounds. YEAH!
Only 9 away from no loner being obese.
MY goal is to lose 2 pounds a week, and I am going to do this!!! I think I will start weekly weigh ins on Tuesdays,
So, I will be on here more regularly to keep myself accountable, you might get sick of me ;). See you on Tuesday where I plan to be 198 pounds.
WISH ME LUCK

Well my 4th and last baby boy is now 8 days old. I am enjoying sweet baby boy, and have been sooo busy! I would like to start going on walks again soon. I weighed 223 at my last pregnant appointment with him, 40 weeks apt. But didn't have him until 40 weeks and 4 days.
That was a total weight gain from pregnancy of 58 pounds... and that for me is sadly normal
gained 50 with first
60 with second
62 with third
and 58 with fourth
Oh well, we wanted 4 kids and now we are done. So excited to focus on myself again, and know that this time, I wont have to gain it all back again!
So when baby boy was a few days old I weighed myself for the first time, I think I was about 210 ish.
I am now 202 which is 21 pounds down since the birth of baby boy. Since he is still so young, I am still losing weight randomly, so I think once he is about 4-6 weeks old I will really know how hard I have to work this time around... yikes.
Still hoping to be 190 by the time I go to the family reunion at the end of June.
Anyway, not going to force myself hard, or starve myself.. I am nursing so my main goal is to eat fresh and healthy, try to give my body and baby what we need, not so much what sounds good. I am thinking that with the combination of walking and drinking plenty of water will help me safely and gradually lose weight this next few weeks and once I am able to work out again, I plan to jog, and eventually run 5 or so days a week.
I also recently found out that my husband is deploying for 4 months at the end of sept.. not a long deployment but I am sad, he will miss our 8th wedding anniversary, halloween, thanksgiving, my bday, and Christmas! Oh well it could be worse and I am already trying to find the positive to this all, one being, a great time to make and set weight loss goals for while he is gone. I plan to be one hot wife when he comes back, which might not be so hard since I will be nursing and taking care of 4 boys all 6 and under by myself! haha Anyway, really excited to get healthy for myself, my children and husband cause of right now, I will be starting off my journey at "obese". 9 POUNDS to overweight for my height (190) I am gonna get that soon ;) Day by day, every choice matters, I will do this!

Well went 4 days past my due date. Doctor strongly recommended indusing me and didn't want me to go past 41 weeks. So I finally agreed, and thank God I did what doc and I felt was best and stopped listening to others. Sweet baby boy already had his first bowel movement in me, he could have been one sick baby, but thankfully he didn't get the poop in his systom. Went in yesterday the 7th at 7 in the morning they started potocin at 805 and he was born at 959 (told ya my labors are fast) too fast in fact, no time for an epidural.. ouch!!!! His name is Moses Fernando and was 8 pounds 2 oz and 22 inches long. Breastfeeding like a champ, but we have to stay another night thanks to jaundice :(. Will post pics soon!!!

Doctor offered to induce me today, 5 days before my due date. I have extremely fast labors and live a good distance from the hospital... But I changed my mind, and canceled this morning. I would have literally been at the hospital right now in labor, maybe even about to hold my baby.. it would be so wonderful to see his face.
BUT, I decided that since this is probably my last baby, I want to enjoy the excitement of him coming on his own. I am nervous, hopefully it's soon and not in the middle of the night when I can't get a hold of anyone.. haha Like I said earlier my labors are fast.. and my husband is in the military so we have no family near by to help with the other kids. I have a few friends that offered, but doubt they are literally waiting by their phone for me haha...
So now is the waiting game... Hoping baby decides to come soon. I have a son who was born on May 6th, my middle child, and he is very sensitive and I really don't want to be in the hospital on his birthday or have him have to share is birthday. hoping baby decides to come in the next few days!!!
Come on baby!!
