Getting Started

I've been struggling to lose weight for awhile. Back before I got married I was never really fat. But I did have chubby times. When I was single it was easy to be a gym rat and make the weight come off. But now I'm a mom and I wouldn't change that for the world. But along with being a mom came many unwanted pounds.

After having my first daughter I got big. Like, the biggest I'd ever been. I was on a weight loss train when I got pregnant again. And once again, after the birth of my second daughter I found myself with unwanted pounds.

As of today I'm 1.5 pounds bigger than when I got pregnant with my baby. Not bad I guess considering she's 6 1/2 months old. But that means I'm still as overweight as I was when I got pregnant. So now, what do I do?

I'm starting this blog to keep myself on track. I want my pre-babies body back. I want to feel like me again.

I agree. It's tough, but not impossible. It's just a matter of trying to find balance among the crazy roller coaster of life. You're doing great to be back at the pre-pregnancy weight just after 6 months.

Take it one day at a time and don't get to down on yourself when you slip. We can definitely enjoy the journey even though it's hard. Hard work and focus and it'll start melting away.
