Here I am after a few years. Trying to be motivated to lose again.
What is the difference this time? I just had my first child and I am the absolute heaviest I have ever been. Sure, when I came home from the hospital I was 221, and now in 5 weeks I am down to 205. BUT this is without trying to lose weight. It just happened.
Now I need to be think about what I am putting in my mouth - is it healthy for me, would I feed it to my baby? AND I need to figure out an exercise routine without losing important time with my child. To add to it all, I am NOT back to work yet! That will be another difficult piece of the puzzle.
In 2 days I find out if I am able to exercise again. Since I had a c-section I was put on many lifting and physical restrictions. I am ready to lose this pouch I have and get toned again.
Right now the only pants that fit are my maternity pants! How long will this last? I would like to fit into my old jeans again (which are still not my ideal size) - how long will this take?
Starting next Monday I will be counting calories and starting to determine how I can get active again.
Wish me luck!
