UPDATE: Click here to see how I did in the 2nd weight loss challenge and how I lost 75 pounds.
I still have 20-25 more pounds to go (30 if I’m feeling ambitious) to get back to feeling really good about myself again and true pre-pregnancy size.
This was me in September 2012, a few months after having the baby and still wearing maternity pants (ugh!!). Not that I think I look so fabulous or something, but I am proud for finally starting to lose, and proud that I am now healthier and can cross my legs again and sit indian style comfortably.
Now for the exercise part which I told you in my January post that I despised…I actually have not worked out much per se, but I have done things sporadically like Zumba and walking.
And while I do love me a good casserole and have some awesome recipes, I haven’t made one in 2 months. PS-I know I should have worn the same outfit for my after pic as my before pic, but I totally did not think to do that at the time. UPDATE: Click here to see how I did in the 2nd weight loss challenge and how I lost 75 pounds. But when I calculate how much I have lost since the 2nd baby was born, it’s a whopping 56 pounds!!!
BUT, I finally did commit to a baby boot camp class and have been to 5 classes now, and go 2 or 3 times a week.
I did sign up to do the challenge for the next 8 weeks too and we are into the 2nd week now. Try little things like when you make oatmeal use water, not milk and that will save you 120 calories. I’m not an expert or anything but I have done this a few times and know what works for me at least. The before picture was taken just 5 days into the program, and the after was taken when the 8 weeks was up.


If you are carrying baby weight still around or just extra weight in general, there is hope. And obviously I am feeling better about myself since I put on real clothes and makeup that day.
And just remember that exercise alone won’t give you the results you are looking for. I am in the same boat as you, gaining way more weight during baby number two, and feeling like a blob. I wrote a post at the beginning of January telling y’all I was starting an 8-week weight loss challenge, like an accountability group type of thing. Well I thought I was going to there at the end but the other girl came in with a 5 pound loss right there in the last week (which really surprised me btw), so she won. I really am trying to step it up in that department so I don’t look so frumpy each day. I stuck strictly to my 1200 caloric intake (and my milk supply has been great btw), and only had 1 cheat day in the 8 week period, and at The Melting Pot…yum! I just don’t buy the bad stuff or the sweets anymore so my whole family is suffering with me.
Normally I’d put a pat of butter in my oatmeal, but I stopped doing that completely too. I have to say though that grey shirt is loose on me now and definitely not fitted like it is in the before pic. It’s really important to start a healthy eating lifestyle so they work well together. We had guidelines to follow, such as eating the right amount of veggies and fruit per day, no food after 9pm, no junk food, exercise, etc. I wasn’t too excited at first (because it takes me a while to really want to lose), but after the first week I was.


I will say though that the first week or two of the challenge, I was grumpy and bit everyone’s head off. I knew that if I ate stuff like that for my dinners, that the weight wouldn’t come off. Oh and those coral tops are from Marshall’s, and the black leggings from Ann Taylor Loft.
You should check it out bc as a mom it’s easy to get one of her 10 minute workouts in. So it makes you want to get all of your points possible for the day so you have a chance at winning the point portion of the contest. I am always glad after class that I did it and do like it when I’m sore the next day. I would order corn tortillas instead of flour and only eat one tortilla, then the rest meat.
You are an inspiration.Thank you for sharing your experience and being honest with all you felt and what works for you. I only made spaghetti maybe twice during those 2 months for the family, and I just left the pasta out for me.
I set aside a portion of the meat sauce and just ate that (and likely with a tostada shell).
