We now have a healthy beautiful baby boy! I am happy to say that I only gained 39 lbs with this pregnancy. My first pregnancy I gained 34 lbs, but when you weigh 247 at the end I never really had to watch what I ate. This pregnancy was challenging because I had lost 83 lbs before getting pregnant so I really had to watch what I ate...especially in the beginning (when baby didn't need so many calories).
Now, 19 days after having our baby I am only 15 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight. I will have no problem "eating" away at those 15 lbs. I will be back on here a bit more now, but not very actively involved because I know that I still need to eat on a high calorie range for nursing.
But when the time comes I can't wait to get back into the challenges and get to my goal weight. I was so close last September (only about 9 lbs away) that I know I will reach that goal with no problems!
