It's been a loooong time since I've sparked. I honestly can't remember the last time I was on here but it hasn't been far from my thoughts. However, I can't really say I'm looking forward to it this time. Last time I was here I was at the halfway mark of meeting my goal weight (-25 lbs!) but then surprise, life throws you a curveball and I found myself pregnant! TOTAL surprise and joy. I've wanted to be a mother more than anything and on Mother's Day 2012 I found out I was going to be just that!
Pregnancy was beautiful. I had no morning sickness and enjoyed seeing my body bloom (for the most part!) It was incredible feeling life growing inside of me. On January 2nd, 2013 I met my beautiful baby girl. Motherhood has been no easy task but it is a love unlike any other.
Needless to say, I've gained back almost all the weight I lost in 2011-2012. I gained about 35 pounds during pregnancy and have lost about 15 pounds of it so far. I am struggling to remember how to eat for one again! I am breastfeeding as well so I am constantly hungry/thirsty but I need to make better choices.
I also delivered my baby via C-Section so I am still recovering from my surgery. I would like to start small (walking for example) and trying new exercises once my body is healed.
Tomorrow I plan on weighing myself and getting myself back into the swing of things. Pre baby bod here I come!
