This has been such a long process- there is definitely no easy fix to weight loss! No fad diets or pills - just pure hard diet and exercise.

I used my original picture from 2010 (postpartum after Caleb) to start with, because, amazingly, I stopped at 162 lbs AGAIN after having Lucas (but never took a pic), even though I started out at 148 lbs pre-preg (same thing with Caleb). So, just imagine that this 162 lbs is from late Dec 2011. The next two pictures are current.

I stayed at 162 lbs for a couple months before I started watching what I eat, and that brought me down to about 155. I had a lot of trouble losing weight after that since it was winter time. Right around summer, I managed to get down to 148 lbs from more exercise and more fresh fruits and veggies.

Then, in the middle of summer 2012, my baby Lucas had his first allergic reaction. After taking him to the allergist and having him tested, I had to cut out all the foods that he tested positive to since I'm nursing - which was a lot! I wasn't eating anything with wheat, dairy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, tomatoes, or potatoes in it. A few weeks later, I had to add soy to that list because it turns out I have a nasty soy intolerance that cripples me with cramps. Sooooo.... That really helped my weight loss. LoL. I was eating practically a Paleo diet: meats, seeds, raw fruits and vegetables, with quinoa and oats as my grains.

I lost weight quickly for the first month-and-a-half as I figured out what I could eat, and once I got a handle on things, I started focusing more on health and continued making healthy choices while still getting enough calories and fat. When I was allowed wheat back into my diet, my weight loss stalled around 137 lbs. Slowly, I worked my way down to 135, where I remained for a few months. When I stopped stuffing my face with Oreos (I was really excited about having a cookie that only contained wheat, haha!), I lost a few more pounds and hovered around 132 for a couple months.

And now, in January 2013, I've had to again restrict my diet (which basically means cutting out all greasy fatty foods and soda) as I wait to have my gallbladder removed. A lot of things can potentially trigger an attack, so here I am, at 129 lbs! My goal weight is between 115-120 lbs.

Not too far - about 10 more pounds! So exciting! Then I'll just be focusing on really toning up, which will probably mean having to eat even more, because I can't seem to eat healthy without losing weight. It's sort of a dilemma, haha!
