14 months post having a baby.
Nov 16, 2013
Yep, here we are, 14 months after having a c-section. Everybody is healthy. I try really hard to remember that little piece because its the most important piece, right?
I had only gained about 20 lbs with my pregnancy. My MD did not unfill me during my pregnancy. The pounds, 12 of which they say is the baby and fluids, is barely worth mentioning. So yea, i did damn good! I have a beautiful healthy baby girl that would not even be possible if it weren't for that initial weight loss of a 100lbs.
But I had a c-section and a bit of a recovery. Wow, I quickly packed on 30 lbs from sitting around, being able to eat finally and of course not exercising while my hormones went haywire. Uh oh! Sciatica, recovery... Crap!
I've got my work cut out for me. I've got to drop almost 50 lbs to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. That is 50% of my original weight loss!!
I remember how I did it. Thankfully I found a picture to remind me. It's a collage of all my workout methods. Hiking, biking, walking, swimming, dancing, snow shoveling, snowshoeing hahaha. I was so terrible at snowshoes. But it was a really fun workout. Oh believe me, the weight did not lose itself with just the band. There was no EASY WAY OUT. I worked hard to lose those pounds, the band just helped me keep it off.
Well it's time to get back on the bandwagon! Where is the edamame? Go team go, let's start walking.
