OK, so... I don't want to hear people saying "Oh, you don't need to lose weight! blah blah blah...." I'm OK with how I am... but just OK.
I want to at least get back to where I was before I had Kylee.
I'm not one of those women either that refuse to share weight info.
SO.... BEFORE Kylee, I weighed 127lbs.
I got up to 168lbs at the end of the pregnancy.
Right NOW (year and a half later) I weigh 142.
My GOAL is to get to 125lbs. Also, to have a flat tummy and not-so-jiggly thighs.
I am probably THE biggest chocoholic any of you will ever meet! So this a a really big challenge for me. I actually get to the point where if my chocolate craving isn't satisfied, I can't sleep at night. Yes, it's that bad. It's just soooooo good.
Another obstacle of mine is that there aren't very many healthy foods that I like. I'm very very picky. Like salad for instance.... YUCK!
Today is day number 3 with ZERO soda and ZERO junk food. I've never dieted before in my life and this is pure torture.
Anyone out there that's had diet success have any pointers for me? Healthy foods to satisfy a sweet tooth? Exercises I can do at home with no equipment? I've been doing crunches and wall push-ups every other day... but I can't think of a way to get my cardio in.... running in place gives me a headache.... I wish I had a treadmill.
Call me vain.... but for once, I'd like to look decent in a bathing suit. Summer is getting nearer. Another reason (which may sound stupid to some), but we want to try for our 2nd and last baby soon... I want to get in shape before pregnancy so it's easier to get back to myself afterwards.
Well.... this rambled on more than I anticipated.... sorry 'bout that! You can smack me now.
