Since New Year's often has us making resolutions and thinking about weight and our health and all, I thought it might be a good time to look back on what we've accomplished since having our babies. Time to see if the common saying ''nine months up, nine months down'' really does apply.
How much had you gained while pregnant?
How much have you lost since?
Are you satisfied, or are you hoping to lose more?
Any health or weight related goals for your the new year?
I actually didn't gain much weight while pregnant because I was losing weight so I was lighter after delivering (I lost 20 lb in like...2 days!) than I was pre-preggo. Now I've started putting weight back on.
I would like to lose about 10-15 pounds in order to really feel okay with where I'm at.
Thanks for my gorgeous siggy, Jaidynsmum!!!
How much had you gained while pregnant? 36 lbs
How much have you lost since? I got back to my pre-preg weight about a month ago, and then gained back about three lbs over the holidays. I'm losing again, though.
Are you satisfied, or are you hoping to lose more? I want to lose 10-15 lbs more, since I was a little chubby before pregnancy.
Any health or weight related goals for your the new year? I just want to look my healthiest, and feel better both emotionally/physically.
Wow Krissy, we've basically had the same changes weight wise and have the same goal.
How much had you gained while pregnant? 36 lbs How much have you lost since? 38 lbs, 2 under pre-preggo Are you satisfied, or are you hoping to lose more? I'm very happy, but I'd like another 10-15 gone also, I'd be back to where I was when I got married. I felt fine then, not too skinny (I've never had that problem ever!), not too round either. Any health or weight related goals for your the new year? Just to feel better and eat better foods, and I know both are connected, I just have to find my balance again. I know when I feel well, I don't eat as much since I'm an emotional eater. So I've kind of changed my focus to that. I want my feelings out and my mind to be stress free again, for my weight, my health, my mood, my relationship, my finances...I want to wipe the slate clean, free up some space to allow room for new things to come into into my life.
How much had you gained while pregnant? I think I gained around 15lbs total, maybe it was 14
How much have you lost since? I've lost 25lbs total
Are you satisfied, or are you hoping to lose more? I'd like to lose another 10-15lbs, maybe a bit more.
Any health or weight related goals for your the new year? I'd like to get back to exercising regularly and to tone up more.
