Six months postpartum
I have lost two more pounds this month for a total loss of 36lbs. I only have 6lbs to go to get to my college weight, which is just crazy to think about! The smallest I've been in the last 8 years was when David and I got married in 2005 and I was 2lbs heavier than I am right now! The new clothes I got last month are starting to appear a bit big, which is beyond thrilling, and my stomach is flattening out.
I continue to eat healthy, approximately 5 small meals a day. Things like lean turkey and grilled chicken breasts, cobb salads with little dressing, fresh fruits, roasted vegetables, unsalted nuts, skim milk, whole grains, and only whole wheat pastas and wraps. I limit cheeses and stay far away from fast food and rarely drink alcohol.
I'm also sleeping 9-10 hours a night and stretching daily.
My exercise/calorie burning activities is limited to breastfeeding, wearing & carrying Nolan around all day, and walking about a mile every day to pick Emily up from school. I still haven't made it to the gym and haven't done any weight training this past month but not because I'm lazy or too tired but because I just can't seem to fit it in. That is a horrible excuse but it's the truth!
