Goodbye Baby Weight - Week 1

OK....it's time....

William is now two months old.  I have fully recovered from the c-section.  I've returned to work.  Now it's time to be that cliche - I need to lose the baby weight.  I'm not planning anything drastic - baby steps should do the trick to losing the extra weight and getting healthy.  A few weeks ago when I limited my food intake too much, I noticed my milk supply went WAY down....so slowly but surely will be my motto.

Starting Point:
I'm horrified to admit that I gained a ton of weight during pregnancy and am now at.....[choke] 205 pounds.  This is the absolute heaviest I've ever been (never even been this close before!) and changes must be made!

Overall Goals:
  1. I try not to be too obsessed with the numbers....however, my first goal is to get rid of that dang "2" in front of my weight.  I will have none of that!! 
  2. I don't have a final goal in mind, I would like to lose around 35 lbs as my initial goal. 
  3. Mostly I would like to get in shape (no matter what the number ends up being).  Last year I was training for a triathlon sprint and that's another goal that I would love to meet, if not this year then next.
  4. I want to minimize (I mean really limit) the eating out we do.  This is hurting our health and our wallets!
This Week's Goals:
  • No fast food
  • Get to the gym at least once (baby steps...it's been a LONG time and Adam and I still haven't figured out how to fit this into our schedules with William)
  • Watch portion sizes
  • Focus on drinking plenty of water and eating fruits and veggies
Let the journey begin!

Stephanie...I'm right there with you. With Charlie, I was the heaviest I had ever been and it was sad and depressing for me to be so close to Hubby's weight! My goals this week are small...3 worksouts (at home on the Wii) and portion control. Here's hoping we can report a success of our week's goals next week! GO us! :)

Good luck, babycakes! You're beautiful no matter what, but I'm so proud of you the way you're documenting this. Smoochies :)
