Here we go, back on that bandwagon again. I wanted to start dieting right when I found out I was pregnant last August so because I was with child and all that jazz, I decided to hold off on the dieting aspect. I tried to enjoy my pregnancy as much as I could and I think I gained a good 15-20 lbs throughout the whole thing. Which apparently for an already-overweight woman is a horrible, horrible thing (I hate you former-OBGYN!). So after I had Zoey, a good 2 weeks after, I weighed myself and I had already lost the 20lbs. I haven’t weighed myself since then, 10 weeks later. I went to weigh myself yesterday morning so I could enter my starting weight on Sparkpeople.com and boy was I ever surprised to find out that I had not gained 80 lbs in the last 10 weeks. I was actually sitting right at where I was pre-pregnancy. HOWEVER, I had gained quite a bit of weight after our eatfest in Disney World on our honeymoon last summer.
So, here we are, just barely a year after our honeymoon and only 12 weeks after giving birth and I am diving head first into the diet thing again. Going to log my food intake, water intake and exercise on Sparkpeople.com and see where I can get. I would absolutely love to lose 15-20 pounds by August 28, which is when we are flying out to Cali so Zoey can meet her other Grandparents.
I feel motivated to do this. I can do it! I just need to stick to counting my calorie intake and see where this lands me. Also, I am going to start cooking more often to help cut down our food bills and also up our nutrition.
