as i've said before, i've been struggling a little bit with losing the weight i gained while pregnant with sailor. i gained quite a few el-bees. (lbs. ;) 60, to be exact. the shedding of these pounds have been a little slower than i expected. actually, a lot slower.
i'm not sure what i really expected. i am fully aware that it took nine months to gain the weight, so shedding it probably wouldn't be much faster than nine months. i've been working, taking care of two kids, keeping up on personal commitments, and taking care of my home. working out, eating right, counting calories- these all take time and i don't have a lot of time. but, i have lost 22 pounds since January 1rst. which, i suppose is quite a big feat.
i've made a commitment for the next thirty days to work out every day (even if it's just a quick walk or a yoga dvd during my kid's naps), count my calories (even if i do go over my daily allotment), stop eating desert, and stop eating past dinner time (i'm a 10pm cereal junkie).
i'm really excited about this commitment and even started a Facebook group with some of my friends to help keep me accountable and gain some support. hopefully i will see some great results in the next thirty days!
i'll keep you posted.
