I finally had my first child in September of 2010 and now its time to try to shed some weight. I was overweight to begin with and it hasn't gotten any better. I was lucky to gain only 30 lbs with the pregnancy and I have already lost 25 lbs of it but I am breastfeeding so my weight loss options are extremely limited. I live in Wisconsin so outdoor at home workouts are out of the question until warmer weather. I can't wait until its like 55-60 degrees! I can walk then with Lily in her stroller and Buddy on his leash. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to convince my boyfriend to walk with us too.

I dream of being able to fit into like a size 7. Until I was 22 I was a size 0-3 and 112 lbs. I don't ever want to be THAT skinny again but I definately want to be nearer that than what I am now. I miss having a flat stomach or being able to walk in a store and actually find clothes that I liked how they fit. Now I'm lucky to find two things after trying on like 20!

    Congratulations on your new baby! I had my first little one last Feb. Like you I only put on abot 25lbs with the pregnancy and it all came right off after when I was breast feeding. Then when I stoped breastfeeding most of it came back. It was a total bummer, now I an try to get it back under control. It is awesome that you are working now just keep in mind when you stop breastfeeding to be extra careful. I know you can do it!
