following: Eat healthy lose weight!
performance: losing 4.9 lb a week
UPDATE: August 3, 2010
I just had baby #2. My starting weight was 126.8 my weight on d-day (June 28) was 167. My weight has now stabilized at 153, and I'm ready to shed the baby weight. Here we go again.
UPDATE: July 13, 2009
I successfully maintained the weight of 127 lbs for almost a year! I am so proud of myself. As of lately, though, I have gotten really slack and gained back 2 pounds. It took a lot of hard work and determination to lose all that weight in the first place, but I did it, and now I'm ready to do it again. This time my weight loss goal is a lot smaller--only 14 pounds. I know I can do it!
First Entry: December 11, 2007
I'm a first time mom. My son recently turned 2 months old. I was very athletic all the way through college. Until now, I never really had to worry about my weight, but I gained 15 pounds after getting married 2 years ago, so I didn't exactly start my pregnancy off healthy. I gained 30 pounds during my pregnancy, which is about average, but since I was overweight to begin with I probably should have only gained about 15-20. Needless to say, I had quite a bit of baby weight to lose.
My short-term weight goal is 130 pounds, but long-term I would like to get down to about 120-125 and stay there.
My "diet" plan is not really a diet at all, it's a total lifestyle revamp. It's all about portion control, healthy food and exercise. I joined an adult swim league 3 weeks after I gave birth to my son, in October 2007, and have been swimming 3 nights a week ever since. I also try to go to the gym on the days that I don't swim. Since I have a little one, I'm not always successful though. I call my diet plan "eat healthy lose weight."
I am a stay-at-home mom, and when I get bored, I eat. This website has been instrumental in making me very aware of everything I put in my body and how much exercise I need to do to work it off.
Oh and I forgot to mention, I live in SoCal... the land of plastic, skinny people. What a bummer!
