Since I had Reagan I have lost a good amount of the extra weight, but I hit a plateau. I'm still about 15 pounds heavier than I was when I got pregnant plus another 10 to 15 pounds heavier than I really should be for my height. I had started walking and trying to eat somewhat healthier but have been motivated by the Body After Baby challenge that is happening over on Mama Notes. Thanks to Kristen for bringing it to my attention! Here is a link to the challenge.
I'm not officially in on the challenge because I came in too late, but I'm using it for inspiration. I'm following the challenges and trying to do them. I've been walking, doing weights, and doing some yoga. I've been drinking water and working on eating healthier(as I sit here eating rotel and blue corn chips...ha!). I'm obviously not eating completely healthy, but I'm making strides. I've been eating vegetables and dip instead of chips, fruit and dip instead of cookies. I figure every little bit helps. I know the dips aren't the best for me, but I figure it's better to have a little non-healthy with the healthy rather than just going all non-healthy. Besides, aren't we supposed to enjoy our food?! I'm trying to cook healthier things for dinner also. Tonight we're having my spicy turkey chili which is pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. I'll try to get the recipe posted tomorrow.
My official goal is to loose 10 pounds over 8 weeks. I been doing it for about a week and have lost 1 1/2 pounds! Yay! I would love to loose a total of 25-30 pounds, but I realize that kind of weight loss takes time. I've taken my measurements and a "before" picture. I'm not sure if I will share the "before" picture because it doesn't look so good. We'll see at the end how I feel about it. I will let you know at the end how many pounds and inches I loose. Wish me luck!
