I wanted to loose weight before getting pregnant so I bought the wii and the biggest loser game. I worked out and stopped eating all the junk I was and I lost 40 pounds in two months. I managed to keep most of it off even after having a baby. I am 4 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight and he is 3 weeks old.
Support, support, support and keep up with it. It is hard but well worth it.
Providing myself with the right support is what really keeps me committed to a healthy lifestyle. What I find incredibly helpful is to make sure that I have plenty of snacks at home. when I am feeling the urge of desperate hunger or I am feeling emotional and go to food, if I dont have healthy items available quickly then I turn to junk.
I make a point of having prepared snacks (pre-cut veggies, pita and hummus, fresh fruit) and also prepackaged snack size food available in a moment's notice.
Some of my favorites: trader joe's semi-sweet mini chocolate bars, 100 calorie snack packs, a handful of almonds, the cutest little ice cream dish that forces me to serve myself a small but satisfying portion, and fresh red peppers sliced the day I bring them home!
