Alright, still gradually losing baby weight :)

Saturday, May 18, 2013

Baby boy will be 2 weeks on tuesday.
When I weighed myself last while pregnant I was 40 weeks 4 days and 223 pounds.
As of this morning I am 199 pounds
That is a total of 24 pounds lost so far.
I am still gradually losing the water weight/ blood weight among other things because I was 202 a few days ago,
I am still eating lost of food, only I am loading up on more healthy choices. ( I am breastfeeding)
Yesterday I bought some 2 pound weights for my arms, for very light work out and a pedometer to track how much I walk, which I will slowly increase with time, and hoping start jogging after my 6 week check up,,
I am hopefully to make it into the 180s before my family reunion trip.
That gives me about 5 weeks to lose 10 pounds, so I really feel I can do it, especially because some of the weight is still falling of from pregnancy.
I think once baby is 4 weeks, I will really know how hard I have to work to lose the weight.
RIGHT NOW, I am just grateful to be less than 200 pounds. YEAH!
Only 9 away from no loner being obese.
MY goal is to lose 2 pounds a week, and I am going to do this!!! I think I will start weekly weigh ins on Tuesdays,
So, I will be on here more regularly to keep myself accountable, you might get sick of me ;). See you on Tuesday where I plan to be 198 pounds.

    Good luck! My daughter is almost 1 year and I'm still struggling to lose the baby weight. It hasn't been easy for me.

    Totally take this time to enjoy your tiny jewel! The weight will come off with healthy choices and a gradual return to exercise when you're ready. There is no deadline!

    You got this momma! It's not like you are new to this journey, so do remember to give yourself adequate time. Babies are so unpredictable, so you have to allow room for that. Like Tara said, I was hard on myself at first, so make sure you relax and remember, YOU JUST HAD A BABY!!
    Congrats! And I'm here for you!!

    You have a really good attitude about it! I spent alot of time in my baby's first weeks beating myself up about not making the progress I felt I should be making... things really improved when I cut myself some slack and set my goals to lose at a slower pace. Now if I do it faster it will just be icing on the cake! Enjoy your new baby :)
