In case you don’t recall, I’ve been trying to lose the 70+ pounds I gained during pregnancy. After birth, around 30 pounds dropped rather quickly and I’m assuming it was all water since I was bloated and swollen like a dead whale ready to burst. Anyway, after that it was a bit of a struggle to lose the weight with no time to exercise and my cravings for comfort food.
Fortunately, my mom has been helping out and I’ve been able to fit in some workouts here and there. Also, I’ve been reevaluating the way I eat, and have started to eat more vegetables and less bread and rice. Just so you know, there is no way in hell am I going to cut out the foods that I love, but I can at least slow down on the whole eating thing. So, after about a two month plateau at 167 lbs, I’ve finally started to lose more weight.
Currently I’m at 160 pounds, and just have 15 more to go to reach my pre-pregnancy weight and 25 pounds to reach my goal weight. It makes me happy to see the weight disappear. I figured that it took me 9 months to pack it on, so it’ll take me 9 months to shed the weight off. Right now I’m on month 5, so just 4 more months to go! However, the holidays are quickly approaching and everyone knows how much I enjoy my holiday grub.
Stay tuned to find out how I handle the ubiquitous holiday weight gain.
