Well I still have 6 weeks left of pregnancy but man have I got the itch! Last pregnancy I did not lose the weight I gained with my DD It is my own fault though as I did not "go the distance." I had a few failed diet attempts and that was it. This time I am ready!!!!! I am a little intimidated by it, but I know that if I really put my all into it I can do it! I will be looking to lose...GULP.... 50LBS!!!! I want to be my pre baby, pre wedding weight! And I know I will need all the support I can get! So I thought I'd ome over and say hello! And good luck to all of you ladies who are already on the track to losing that extra weight!
welcome christa! and congrats on your soon arrival! after giving birth just now in june, i had 45 pounds to lose!
im so glad to have you joining us! here's a little about what's going on around here....we have a wednesday weigh-in. every wednesday we will post a wednesday weigh-in post and you just post what your weigh-in for the week was. charity will be keeping a chart. once you have the baby you can give her the info...but that's later...
and we also now have a new weightloss journal subforum! g'head and make one whenever you're ready and post about all your ups and downs and in betweens along your weightloss journey.
also, this isn't only about weightloss, so feel free to post about anything you would like. and feel free to ask anything too.
All i wanted to say is that the once you have your baby, the best thing to do drop those pounds is to breastfeed, breastfeed and more breastfeed... lol I mean.. i dont know how keen you are about it.. but if you look at my ticker, all that weight i've lost is by only breastfeeding. I had always heard women talking about how it helps to drop some weight.. but man!.. i never knew it was going to work that well.
I'm still waiting for my 6wks PP appt so i can get the go on dieting and exercising.
I breastfed DD for 7mos and I did not notice a huge change in weight loss I am going to do it again this time and I hope it goes better for us as last time it was not so easy even with the help of the lactitionist But for me breast is best
