I'm back after baby!

Monday, April 02, 2012

On March 21st, we welcomed a 9lb baby boy to the world! He is healthy & quickly became 1 of the 3 loves of my life...him, his sister, & their daddy!

I gained 30 pounds with this pregnancy & very happy to say, at only 12 days postpartum from my c-section, I only have 7 pounds to lose to get to my pre-prego weight! Yay! I really was almost all baby! This is very encouraging for me!

With that said, i still am carrying an extra 20 pounds that I never lost from my first pregnancy. So I'm still technically 27 pounds of baby weight. My first priority with starting to get my post baby body back, is to shed these pounds. I can't start exercising for awhile...won't get cleared by doctor til at least the first week of May. But I should be able to start walking fairly soon as it doesn't hurt to cough & sneeze!

So...with all that said, my first short term goal is to lose 15 pounds by Father's Day, June 17. Afterall, we did just get a new pontoon boat that I need to get a bathing suit for! :)
