Have you made it back to your pre-pregnancy weight? If not, are you close or do you not care? LOL
What have you done to lose weight?
I am not back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I am about 15 lbs away. I am not sure if I ever will be though. I didn't really do any anything to lose the pregnancy weight. I have recently started working out bc I want to tone up for the Summer. I was very uncomfortable last year. Other than working out, I am still eating like I normally do.
I'm not back to pre-pregnancy weight but I'm ok with it because I was almost under weight before. I didn't gain much during my pregnancy (10 pounds total) due to hypermisis. Pregnancy changed my body shape a lot. I'm more curvy now and before I had a very straight up and down body type. I think I look better now. I just toned everything up with pole dance, yoga, and this work out: The No Squats Belly, Butt & Thighs Workout - Prevention.com
I'm probably at my pre-Madeline weight but not quite to pre-Braylon. My ultimate goal would be to lose 20 lbs more (I was working towards that when I got pregnant with Braylon). I am about 5 lbs away from pre-Braylon right now. I just started 14 days ago doing Jillians 30 day shred and watching portions but no strict diet. I am more interested in inches though than weight at this point. I have to be in SIL's wedding in October and want to be looking good at that point ... and then I plan to get pregnant again and start the process all over . Although I haven't gained much in either pregnancy so I should be ok.
I am way below. It took me longer than the others to get it off but I started running again and that helped. I am actually under and trying to gain now.
Lucky you to gain some! LOL I really want to get a treadmill because I know if I did, I'd run quite a bit on it. Plus I can run on it when Clayton goes to bed or on days that the weather isn't great and not have to worry about taking Clayton out.
I sadly still have most of my pregnancy weight to loose I gained a huge 50 pounds during pregnancy and only about 15 have came off so far. I started dieting and exercising more before the holidays and lost about 5 pounds in 6 weeks but for as strict as I was (no carbs, no fruit, nothing sweet) I've done the same diet before and lost about 7 pounds in 2-3 weeks. I just can't seem to loose the weight. I just got some workout walking dvd's and am going to try that and see if I can get motivated and loose weight.
I'm hoping that now that I finally weaned Kynslee (milk still hasn't completely dried up from over a week ago) that will help me loose more weight.
Keeps track of exercise, what you eat, your goals, charts your weigh-ins. I can scan barcodes of food and it will pull up the nutrition information (if it is in the database). I can enter in a recipe and it will calculate the nutrition information for me. It is easy to use and quick--I used to use the calorie counter site but it was so darn slow that it took forever to log something in.
I find myself making better food choices since I know I will be logging it LOL Plus I have a habit of eating a lot of veggies and while that is good in a way, it isnt so good when I realize I have only eaten 900 calories for the day and because I still nurse Izzy quite a bit, the docs say I should be aiming for a minimum of 1800 Most days I eat around 1600 without thinking about it but then I get those 900 days and logging keeps me aware of when it is happening so I can eat something a little more substantial before the day is over
