Sorry to bring this up again, I know there have been a couple topics on this already, but I figure I can't be the one who decided to re-vamp their efforts here for the new year and I am so happy this morning that I just want to share it with someone other than my husband.
So I had been hovering at about 10lbs above my pre-preg weight for about 3 months but as my New Years Resolution I have committed to actually exercising regularly (rather than sporadically) and counting calories (ALL of them). I even got my hubby on board too - which I think is a huge reason I am actually sticking to it, and this morning I was exactly 7lbs less than I weighed on Jan 1st! Yay!!! That is 4lbs above my weight the day I found out I was pregnant. Part of this new regimen is making sure I drink 2+ liters of water a day, so that is a big part of the nice jump start, but man does it feel nice to see some numbers moving!
If I can get to my pre-preg weight the next goal is my wedding weight. I am the first to admit I gained about 15lbs between our wedding and when I actually got pregnant so hopefully I can keep this up. DH has about 15lbs to go to his goal weight (he is also off to a good start and had gained about 20lbs since we met as well)
Anyways, thanks for listening - and now I must ask.. who else is using the New Year to motivate some new healthier habits? How are they going? Does anyone want to check in with me? Maybe we can give each other some additional inspiration!
