Happy and healthy new mother to a beautiful baby girl. Looking to stay motivated and maintain my current weight loss. I never had a weight promblem ,( bedside the amount of weight gained during pregnancy nearly doubled me in size.. lol ) but I am afraid of gaining weight as I get older. I try to stay active on most days of the week by running 3 to 5 miles and sneak in a warm up and cool down walk. Having a lil infant can make it difficult to get these run's in -however I know how important staying healthy is - for both my daughter and I. Tracking what I eat helps me see exactly what I put in my mouth and helps me stay on top of my game. My secret ? ... come take a peek at my food journal and exercise journal....it's no secret at all.. :)

Calories
I want to challenge the theory calories in VS. calories out. At the end of the day is it all matter of calories consumed ( In vs. out ) that matters with weight loss?? After all a calorie itself is just a unit of energy . I am fully aware of the importance of eatting healthy for not only weight management, health, lower risk for disease, ect.. but I would like to know if people have or think for that matter that when trying to lose weight you can have ice cream daily or any dessert -as long as you keep your overall calories in check . Look at weight watchers programs -Eat what you want ( Yes-they encourage healthy choices ) but foods are worth a point value and you only have so many points. I have noticed people lose weight on that program. WOULD LOVE to hear from fellow dieters on there theory. And agian I am not talking about the importance of healthy eatting for general health and feeling good but just the overall theory calories in Vs. Calories out. Thanks Everyone !!Razz

Looking for some Buddies in Virginia
Hello, I would be more than happy to join a team with you or be a co-buddy through a weight loss program. I just gave birth to a wonderful baby girl this summer and I am looking to shed these extra baby pounds. I am nearly at my 6 week point after delivery and my doctor has allowed me to resume regular activity. I could use any tips, advice on losing weight after baby. I gained over 50 lbs during this pregnancy and I want to say goodbye once and for all to it. Smile
