Hi everyone,

I'm Jess, mommy to Cameron (7.5 months), wife to Ken. I've lost the 50lbs I gained while pregnant, and am 7lbs into the additional 30 I'd like to lose (20 relate to quitting smoking before TTCing, and 10 from first year of marriage).

I look forward to continuing my journey with you ladies! I'm super excited about the Zombie challenge!

I thought with breastfeeding, the weight would just melt off. That's what everyone told me. I lost 25lbs in about 2-3 weeks, mostly the water I retained. Then I stalled for almost 3 months.

I'm now on my 135 day straight of logging into MFP It helped me figure out portions, be more mindful of what I am eating, and curb my bored snacking. I also used to drink a lot of my calories.

I try to do cardio a few days a week (it's getting easier now that its nicer out), and I was doing 30DS, but only got as far as day 20 when we transitioned my son to his crib, and I haven't gotten back on it yet due to lack of sleep. We also set up the bowflex this weekend from being a clothesline to actually able to use! I log my food religiously.

My goal is to get to my first goal by the summer...when we will start TTCing again

That's great! I'm on MFP also- same username jhmomofmany if you want to find me. I'm not very good at logging my food lately, but will definitely be back at it after Baby.
