Baby Weight Update

It's been about 3 weeks since I've been trying to lose the last 10 pounds of baby weight, and I can successfully report that I have lost 4 pounds! I have 6 more pounds to go by March 29th. After that I have an additional 7 that I'd like to drop by June 5th - just in time for swim suit season :)

What have I been doing to lose the weight? Well, I'm a big slacker when it comes to working out, but I have been doing Wii Fit of EA Sports Active about 3-4 times a week. Along with breastfeeding, I've been trying to make healthier choices about what I eat. This means no more impromptu brownies, cookies, or other sweets, and instead eating salads and veggies for snacks in between meals. I've also been trying to eat more consistently throughout the day so that I'm fuller longer, and have increased my water intake.

I will say that despite being 6 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight, my body shape has completely transformed thanks to Dax. Clothes that would have fit when I was 10 pounds heavier than I am now, do not fit anymore because my body has redistributed my weight. Although I have more energy, and can tell that I am losing weight, it is slightly discouraging and frustrating to have boxes full of clothes that just don't work with my body yet. I'm hoping that as I continue to shed the next few pounds, my body will start to cooperate with my jeans again - those Lucky's will fit again one day!!


  1. you are doing so much better than I am! I can't seem to tell no to my sweet tooth! I also have not been meeting my exercise goals. Yay for your dedication and achievement!

  2. Thanks Andrea - derek has been a huge help with the sweet tooth and he makes me work out too lol!

  3. Sounds like you're doing great! I had the same body shape changes after having Leo. I saved those too-small clothes though, and was able to wear them after having Karas (yay!) so it is possible for your hips to cooperate again. ;) Maybe that's not your problem area, but it was mine! Of course, just a few months after I was able to fit into those clothes again, I wound up pregnant again. Go figure!
