Re-modified.... again. If you remember back to HERE I changed my weight loss goal to what I figured was more realistic for a mom of 4... but as I looked at my goal today and realised I am only 5 pounds away, I knew I still had more to lose. So... my ticker at the top now reflects my goal - 135, which is also the lowest I should go - and still be in my healthy weight range! I am excited about this goal - as it gives me something to work for stll, and when I get there I can work on maintaining and toning up good! I am very lucky in that I don't usually have a tough time maintaining weight - just losing! But... I am getting sooooo close! YAY!
So... I had lost about 15 lbs(might have been 20... I stopped looking at the scalet hose last few weeks of pregnancy...) by the time I went to see the Dr at my 6 weeks postpartum checkup. That is when I started my ticker from - so technically I have lost 80 lbs in one year (as of yesterday - Happy Birthday BABY!) and have 15 more to go... WOW!!! That is almost 100 (95)! I hadn't even realised that until I sat down to type this! I had NO idea I had gotten that fat! But, when you gain 60-70 pounds per pregnancy... and then just once don't lose enough in between... that is a lot of weight! (I got preggo with #4 with 20 lbs to go from #3 who was only 9 months at the time!)
I am pretty excited and proud of myself... my next goal - to magically become one of those women who only gains 20 pounds during pregnancy!
