Just the Beginning, Follow Me on My Weight Loss Journey
Bye-bye baby fat! I’ve come to the conclusions that my body may not return to its pre-child form, but that doesn’t mean I need to keep the extra pounds I’ve accumulated over the years. This year I have a plan, the 60 Day SlimDownTM System. My thought was, “I can do 60 days!”
I started getting heavier and fatter as I had my children. My first pregnancy was the one that really did me in! I can’t feel satisfied, and ate and ate and ate as a result. After the baby was born everyone kept telling me how the pounds would just melt off if I breastfeed … well, I did for 14 months and NOTHING! I was round but too busy to take on a gym. Then I got pregnant again and told myself I won’t gain weight with this one and that at the end I’d shed the pounds. Though I didn’t gain weight like I did with my first, I didn’t lose any either. My second breastfed for 13 months too and this also caused no weight loss for me. Many of my friends saw results with breastfeeding an normal activities, so it was actually comforting when I found Lindsay Brin who is a fellow mom with 2 kids and one on the way.
So here is where I start my journey with you all as my witnesses. Let me give you a point of reference.
Here is what would’ve been our family Christmas picture (I’m the one in the center in red):
But then I thought to myself, “I should suck in my tummy.” The results look great, but I can’t function sucking it in all the time! So I say bye-bye baby fat!
