hi again!

Monday, May 30, 2011

Ok, so a lot has happened since last time I blogged here! Most important is probably that last August I found out that we were expecting baby #2! Needless to say this was a complete surprise! I was planning to stick with my exercise plans, at least, during the pregnancy, but my 4 months of morning sickness had other plans and I ended up not doing much. Despite all that I only gained around 28 pounds during the pregnancy. Our beautiful daughter Isabella Katherine was born on May 9th, and I weighed myself this morning and I am back down to about 11 pounds up from where I was when I started the pregnancy. So not bad, but I have a little work to do, and clearly I'd like to get back on track with losing more weight!

I am breastfeeding so that will definitely help, and I've just joined the Amazing Race challenge on my Wii Exercise team. I'm wondering if I should sign up for the next BLC challenge....any of my former Blazing Blue teammates still around?? I've been out of touch with Spark for the last 9 months or so. :)

    Welcome back! you got back on the Spark quickly after Isabella was born! Good job gaining just 28 lbs. during pregnancy! I gained about 40 with Nicholas.. maybe 45. I had the same issue with being on a weight loss streak when I got pregnant with him and needed to stop exercise during pregnancy (not morning sickness- early bleeding). I had dropped 60 lbs before that - down to 240 and got to about 281-ish.. So then after I got to about 270, dropped about 10.. and kept it off awhile.. and then went back recently up to 270s.. Which was making me feel sluggish and my clothing was getting too tight again, and just feeling bad about my body again. Somehow I finally got the motivation again to get into the program here again and really work it!

    Let's do this together!
