My Post Pregnancy Body Picture - Sigh

Ok, so baby is 1 1/2 weeks old. I'm 1 pound above my pre baby 8 pregnancy weight. I'm 156 right now. :(



My weight was NOT where it should have been when I got pregnant. My fault. I was lazy. I was drinking a ton of pop and eating junk/processed foods.







I am getting back on track (minus the little raw cookie dough post I made last night). I've been drinking lots of water, eating (mostly) healthy, limited pop... I am SOOO looking forward to being able to exercise again!!! I got in shape FAST after my 5th when exercising and eating healthy! I CAN DO IT!!!



I want to post a picture (with weight) at least once a month on this post and on my blog (http://ourbirthjourneys.blogspot.com) as an update.



Anyone want to join me in a healthy body challenge?







My goal...



In 6 months I want to be between 125-130 pounds.



I want to cut out the vast majority of soda. Maybe once a month as a 'treat'.



No more than 1 sweet a day (which should be easy as we don't generally buy sweets.



When my body is ready (about 6 weeks after baby -- around Feb 19) I will exercise 30 minutes a day. Until then I will stay active. Not over doing it, but not sitting around.








Jan 19:

156 lbs

34.5% body fat (according to my scale)


Feb 3


154 lbs


Lost 1 inch on waist

I miss my skinny days. Not quite like when I got married (size 1 and 100 lbs). I don't want to be that skinny again. 125 would be nice though. I'd like to tone my stomach, thighs, and arms. I'm too lumpy and jiggly for my liking. I want to fix my abdominal muscles where they seperated too.

Made homemade crockpot Chinese chicken and veggies with rice tonight. Much healthier than pizza, and dh and the kids loved it. :)
