Well, it's official, my little guy is almost 9 months can you believe it?! He has grown up so fast! Since he was born, I have been working on losing the baby weight and I can officially say I have done it, well for now anyways! (Read previous posts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7). I now weigh 124 pounds, that is a weight loss of 46 pounds and I couldn't be happier! My real goal is 120 pounds, but I am fitting in all of my pre-baby pants and shorts just fine. My guess is that my little extra weight is coming from the fact that I am still nursing. I am a little larger in a certain (uh-um!) area, to say the least.
Here's a nice before and after pic:
Losing the weight has been a constant yo-yo for me the last few months. Mostly because I have moved twice within the last six months and it makes it tough to stick to a diet plan. However, I lost the last few pounds with this last move because I barely had time to eat! I worked on cleaning the new house, painting the kitchen, and chasing around an almost 9 month old who is crawling faster and faster ever day! But when I did find time to eat, it mostly consisted of fast food and wine, which is so not healthy for me!
This week I decided to start eating healthy and exercising on a daily basis again. I feel that when I eat junk, I feel like junk and when I don't exercise I feel irritable, tired, and moody. It's amazing the difference in my confidence level and attitude when I workout regularly and eat healthy. So even though I am not really back to my pre-baby weight of 120, this will be my last post on the subject of losing the baby weight until I am finished nursing. Right now I plan to focus on eating right, exercising regularly, enjoying life, and doing it all while enjoying the little extra curves on my body!
