I recently heard that it takes 9 months to put the baby weight on so it should take at least 9 months to take it off. We recently celebrated Baby G's 6 month birthday - and I naturally panicked. 3 more months and all that baby weight must be gone! I have a little over 10 pounds left to lose to be to pre-pregnancy weight...and about 30 pounds to lose to be the size I'd really like to be!
So - it's official. I'm on a diet/exercise program. Good thing I didn't let my gym membership lapse! I am not planning anything too complicated. Staying simple once again. No meal plans or anything. Just eat less and move more!
I realized that after the 6 month mark I don't have the obessive need to be with Baby G every second. So, I made time for me. My plan - Saturday, Sunday and Tuesdays I will be at the gym for at least an hour.
I started this past weekend - Saturday and Sunday. It's on! My goal is to be down 10 pounds and at pre-pregnancy weight by Christmas! Wish me luck.
