i gained about 60 lbs with both of my pregnancies. i lost all of the weight from having emily, and one month later, found out i was pregnant with david. i was in my size 10's for about a week before i dove right back into my old eating habits, and stretchy maternity pants!
after having david, it took me a little over a year to lose 80 lbs. i was feeling great, in my size 10's once again, and then the cycle continued...only i wasn't pregnant this time!! i've only gained about 8 lbs back, so that's not horrible, but i just feel out of shape. i saw a pic of my sissy from her vacation this passed week, and wanted to die. she looked so hot! its been hard to be the "bigger twin" with the "rounder face".
i have refocused. sometimes you just need a kick in the ass...or to see a pic of your way skinnier sister to get back on the wagon. i'd like to lose 20 lbs before her wedding in june. i also just want to be healthier. that gives me plenty of time to take it off slowly. i've tried a few fad diets, with some success, but nothing that i can really stick to. i'll be watching my portions, and cutting back on the baking :o( oh, i'll still bake, its part of who i am. maybe i can find some healthier recipes though. to hold myself accountable, i've decided to log my progress in every monday.
so today's (re)starting weight is 171 lbs. i have a date with jillian michaels when david takes his nap.
goal for the week: have jeans fitting a little better before date night on friday!!
