I've decided that I want to lose weight. I gained 32 pounds while pregnant with Peyton, lost 3o of those pounds by my 6 week postpartum appointment, and have gained back 10ish upon returning to school. Ideally, I would LOVE to lose 25 pounds, but I would be happy to drop 15 or so. I would like to contribute the weight gain to school, but it probably has more to do with the crazy sweet tooth and ferocious appetite that didn't leave with the pregnancy. The final straw was when I started to outgrow my "fat" pants, which is a girl's worst nightmare.
I keep saying I'm going to eat healthier and start exercising again, but I also keep putting it off....so here goes. Hopefully by keeping track of my weekly goals here I will feel a little more accountable.
Starting this Sunday, I'm going to have a weekly weigh-in. My goal is to lose 1-2 pounds per week. At that rate, I will reach the lower threshold of the realistic goal by my birthday....and if I continue, I will have lost 25 by Peyton's first birthday. Wish me luck!!!
