Here is this photo, 3 days before I delivered Cassidy. Oofta.
I tend to gain a ton fair amount of weight with my babies. This pregnancy was 45 pounds total (still less than Troy, thankfully, when I was 50+ pounds). And since I’m otherwise healthy while pregnant, several of my midwives told me not to sweat it and its just what my body does when I’m growing a person 🙂
So after I had Cass, thanks to breastfeeding and just normal life, I ended up losing 25 pounds of that. And then it just stopped. Case in point, this photo below from January (I had been at this weight since mid-December, excuse the poor photoshopping).
By the time March rolled around, I knew I had to do something to lose the rest of the baby weight (around 20 pounds). I started (sort of) watching what I ate (at least tracking it) and found myself running a couple times a week. I’ve just starting using Daily Burn too, because, as the commercial says, “the hardest part about going to the gym is going to the gym.” Truth.
Here I am today! Down another 18 pounds. I’m about 2 pounds over what I was when I got pregnant with Cassidy but even though the scale’s not changing I’m seeing good results in the last week or so. Felt pretty good to dust off some new old jeans this week from my closet 🙂 And I feel really good, too!
