I don't know if this will work, but I figure if I have a place to keep track and share some support, that maybe I'll be a little more motivated to lose some weight. So I gained about 50 lbs during my pregnancy. Last weigh in before birth was 185. I lost about 30 lbs really quickly PP without thinking about it. But now I have been at the same weight (give or take 3 lbs) for about two months.
I am going to try to drink more water, quit soda, less butter on everything (I should quit it altogether), more fruits and veggies. I should also quit the half-n-half in my coffee, but I don't know if I'm ready. I have a super sweet tooth and have been craving ice cream, cake, cookies. Instead, I have cereal or granola bars. I don't think that all of the carbs are helping my case. I also want to start walking at least 30 minutes 4xs a week. I will hopefully increase this when I get more motivated.
Hips: 41" (this measurement is misleading due to my body type - my hips are higher than one traditionally measures, so I'm adding a measurement)
Big Flappy Belly (sort of at my hips, below waistline): 43"
(Hey, I'm more hourglass now than I ever was! From a front view only)
Yeah, exactly... ONLY 40 lbs. I want to cry. I don't seem to be doing so well this week. I keep eating crap. It's ridiculous. I know I have self control somewhere inside of me. If only I weren't ravenous and had a hired cook, private trainer, at home gym, and a nanny. Then, maybe it wouldn't feel as hard.
I did go on a very long walk yesterday though. That was good. I proved to myself that I could handle a little distance. So, I just need to keep it up I guess. I'm getting new sneakers tomorrow, so I'm hoping this will inspire me to walk
Good luck to you! Do you plan on "weighing in"? I think I may post weekly to keep myself on track.
