13889Re: Losing the post-pregnancy baby weight
- Sep 3, 2008I'm home! LOL! I can relate to all the stories I've read!
This is the reason I joined the challenge; another attempt at losing
Here's my story.
My name is April. *Hi* I had my son exactly 25 months ago today by
C-Section. My body was perfect after I came home cause I never had
hips or butt LOL! So I was happy! I breast fed for about 3 months :(
and as soon as I stopped, the weight started slowly coming back
EVERYWHERE. I exercised, thought it was the BC so I got off those, got
on diet pills twice, then started walking and running while being on a
strict water diet but it looked like the weight just wouldn't budge. I
even got checked to see if it was my thyroid but that came out normal.
Well recently my husband and I have noticed my lower stomach is
shrinking a little and my waist is appearing to slim down a little. So
I weighed myself a few days ago and I was kinda shocked to see that I
am the same weight I was around my due date two years ago! I'm not in
denial, I know I'm big but when I saw that, I kinda got upset but was
mostly embarrassed and kinda sad cause we noticed the weight loss (or
maybe in this case inches?) and I felt like I had at least lost 5
pounds LOL! Why is baby weight so hard to lose?
The thing I think I will like about this challenge is that it's
inexpensive and I won't have to buy a whole lot of stuff.
So I hope this works and I'm going to start walking/running again.
Pray for me! I pray you all are successful as well!!!
