YES! Part one of my goal has been reached!
I finally am out of the 190s and 200s for the first time since I was 4 months pregnant! (189.6) My son turns 2 next month and during my pregnancy I gained a whopping 80 pounds topping out at 265. The first 50 came off within a month (preeclampsia made me bloated like no other!) The next 15 pounds came off over the next year and then I was stalled until I started working out 6 days a week and counting calories 5 weeks ago. I'm only 4.6 lbs from my prepregnancy weight, which was my first goal. I feel on top of the world. I still have another 34 lbs to go to reach my final goal, but this gives me hope that maybe I can do it :)
