Weight Loss #4 Day 1
I know, I know, baby is only a month old and I've already embarked
on weight loss #4. To some of you who do not know my history, I gain a lot of weight during
each pregnancy and I have quite a challenge to lose my
pregnancy weight afterwards, yet somehow I manage to do it, even if
it's a slow process. More on my previous weight losses, HERE.
So here I am once again. Over weight with a
I am nursing, so I have to be extremely careful that I
don't hinder milk production or stop it. My baby is my
priority. I won't let myself go hungry. I won't limit my vegetable intake either. I'll make sure my calorie intake is sufficient.
During my final weeks of pregnancy, I refused to be weighed
at my check ups so I don't actually know exactly how much I weighed
before birth, but I'm guessing 250lb ,or even more. Currently I weigh
225lb and that is 2lb less than two days ago. So here I am at 225. What
is my goal? Well it's of course my pre pregnancy weight, which is 145lb.
Some say I am too hard on myself and should aim for a smaller goal..
Buuut I don't want to. Call me stubborn.
My weight day 1 = 225lb
My plan is to prep and precook my lunch and dinners for the next two weeks. If I have the $, I will consider doing it for the next four weeks. This will save me time and protect me from temptations.

I will weigh myself weekly on Fridays starting December 19th. I will also post photos of start and present. I won't be working out until I go to my 6 week check up, and I will begin with only cardio, kegels and Stott pilates to strengthen my
body before I hit the weights.
So, any suggestions or advice you want to give me?
