My guess is I'm around 195 and I would like to be under 155. I'm a runner - just two years ago (before surprise baby, bedrest, hysterectomy, and breastfeeding) I was winning my age group in local races! So I want that part of me back, as well as my far more healthy body image. Breastfeeding has always kept me "fat" and i am on baby five at forty. Worried that I won't pull it off this time- the last two times I had two babies back to back (13 months apart and 14 months apart) and breastfed each for six months plus. This time we are ten months in and still breastfeeding but the truth is, every day I feel more and more like quitting. I want my body back!
For the past five weeks I've been working c25k - it feels like a huge setback to go to that level after being a really good runner but dang it I'm doing it. Also hitting the gym and yoga more and more in hopes of gaining some muscle and shedding some of this awful fat suit.
I wish you all luck in the journey!
