Hey Becky, thank you for replying! I am 5'9" and currently weigh 265lbs. I am currently exercising for about an hour 4 times a week. About 45 minutes per day of that is cardio and I try to keep my heart rate above 70% The rest is weight training.
My son is 13 months and he is eating other foods, but he spends about an hour and a half per day breastfeeding. My gut says that he's still getting a significant portion of his calories from breast milk. I'm trying to introduce more solid foods, but he tends to resist them in favor of breastfeeding.
At this point I'm thinking a 1/2lb to a pound. I don't have my heart set on any specific rate, I just want to be getting rid of more calories than I'm taking in, and to fuel some exercise related goals that I have. My biggest problem is that I can't run comfortably at this weight and I want to be able to start training for a 10k. Thanks. :)
Edit: I just realized that my ticker is no longer accurate. That was my accurate weight before I stopped losing due to my pregnancy. So that weight is ancient! I fixed it!
