Post-Baby-Body-Check-In (INTROS)

Okay everyone, once a week I'm going to post a new thread for us to all "weigh-in" on our post-baby-body fixing. I realize that not everyone is trying to lose weight, per say; some are at goal weight, and just trying to tone up, or fit into certain jeans...WHATEVER your goal is, we WILL get there! This is a no-judgement place where we can all share our progress as we hit our goals and milestones, and cheer each other on!

So please introduce yourselves!

Re: Post-Baby-Body-Check-In (INTROS)

  • Name: Molly

    Ultimate Goal: I'd like to lose the 5 dress sizes that I gained while I was pregnant! I'd like to go from a size 9 back to my original size 4. How much the scale reads is unimportant to me- how my clothes look, and more importantly, how I FEEL, is my goal!

    Tools or Plans to help me reach it: I'm breastfeeding and going on walks for now. In a few weeks when my doctor clears me for exercise, I'll add in daily Zumba dvd's, and occasionally go swimming, or get on the elliptical. I'm also going to try to add more protein to my diet while cutting out ALL fried foods (eek!!)

    I'd *ideally* like to reach my goal by: September 7th.  My best friend and I will be going on a cruise to celebrate our birthdays in early September, and I'd like to feel confident enough by then to don a bikini.

    Smaller Milestone: July 9 is my fiance's High-School Reunion- I'd like to wear a size 7 dress to it. (2 sizes down, 3 to go)

    Name:     Natalie

    Ultimate Goal:     Lose 9 pounds and get rid of my PP tummy pooch

  • Name: Heather

    Ultimate Goal: I lost my pregnancy weight from both my daughters, now I'd like to lose the weight from my son that's hung around for a decade. Time to get rid of that extra 20+lbs.

    Tools or Plans to help me reach it: Reducing what I eat, no soda, limiting bread intake, no pasta and sticking to lean meats, fresh fruit and fresh greens.

    I'd *ideally* like to reach my goal by: I would like to lose the remaining 26 lbs in two months. We will see how that goes.

  • Name: Amber G

    Ultimate Goal: I would LOVE to be back to my pre-DD1 weight of 115lb.  Before I got PG with DD2 I was down to 120.  I've been very fortunate to only gain 25lbs with each of my pregnancies but it's hard for me to lose the last 10-15lbs.  With DD1 the majority of the weight didn't come off until I stopped BFing.

    Tools or Plans to help me reach it: I will be starting the 30-Day Shred tonight and I hope to get on my elliptical a couple days a week.

    I'd *ideally* like to reach my goal by: I would be happy if I lost 5lbs by July 16th (my bro's wedding) and I would be extremely happy to reach my goal weight by Oct 11th (Samantha's 6mo).

  • Name: Natalie
    Ultimate Goal: I would love to get back to around 130lbs and dress size 4.  I had put weight on before getting pregnant and at my first prenatal visit I was weighing 158lbs. On the day I was induced I weighed 186lbs. Im now 10 days past delivery and am down to 164lbs.
    Tools or Plans to help me reach it: I have been going on some walks but once I get the all clear from the doc I plan to do more walking and slowly get back to a strength and conditioning routine. My hubby is a personal trainer so I have no excuse! I had gestational diabetes, which is now gone, but I am thinking of trying to stick to the sugar and carb reduced diet.
    I'd *ideally* like to reach my goal by:
    My best friends wedding is on September 16th which gives me 16 weeks.

  • Name: Stacy
    Ultimate Goal:
    To get back to my pre pregnancy weight of 118 and hopefully fit back into my clothes. My current weight it is 145. So, far I have lost 44 lbs.
    Tools or Plans to help me reach it:
    I am breastfeeding. I have been walking twice a week for the last 2 weeks. I am planning on walking daily. In 8 weeks I will be returning to my boot camp class that I was taking before.
    I'd *ideally* like to reach my goal by:
    I?m going with our 3 year anniversary of October 11. I hoping to be done way before then but since I have been told no ab exercises until after 16 wks pp. I'd like to have 5-10 lbs gone before I go back to work in 4 weeks.

     

    ***CS mommas when were you told that you were clear for ab exercises? I haven?t seen my OB since I was 2 wks pp. I was told that I didn?t need to come back until my annual appointment in Aug. I would like to start working out sooner than 16 wks.

  • Name: Alexis
    Ultimate Goal: To get get back to my pp weight of 155. I'm 5'7'' and at that weight I'm a size 6/8. A few days ago I just bought some "big girl jeans" in a size 12. I'm currently 183. When I delivered I was 210 so I'm down 27 pounds. The first 22 pounds were gone within 4 days of delivering. The last 5 I've had to work for. 28 pounds left. I've heard the breastfeeding women tend to keep an extra 5-7 pounds while they're still nursing. I'll be pscyhed just to get back to the mid to low 160s.
    Tools or Plans to help me reach it: breastfeeding, eating right, walking around my neighborhood and on the treadmill at the gym (I'm not 6 weeks postpartum yet so I'm taking it easy until I get the all clear). I plan to start running intervals. I hate running so running mixed with walking is as good as I get. I'm also going to start going back to the Barmethod religiously. It's a barre class that's a mixture of ballet, palates, and yoga.
    I'd *ideally* like to reach my goal by: I don't know, I'm trying to be realistic. I'd like to only have 15 more left to lose by the time I got back to work which is Sept 6.

  • Name: Shannon
    Ultimate Goal: to lose 30 lbs and the 7 lbs left over from my pregnancy. The 30 was there before I got pregnant.
    Tools or Plans to help me reach it: I'm calorie counting but because I'm breastfeeding, I eat 2000 calories a day.
    I'd *ideally* like to reach my goal by: Next March because I feel that even though my weight loss will be slow because of my need to eat so much for breastfeeding... that I can get there by My Son's First Birthday!

  • Name:  Melissa

    Ultimate Goal:  I was 130 at my first prenatal visit.  I am 5lbs shy of that mark right now but I would like to get down to what I weighed after my first DD (117lbs).

    I would love to start running again but since I'm nursing my boobs are ginormous!!  I don't see how I could run and be comfortable!!  So....I plan on starting to take more walks, continuing bfing, and possibly start some other type of weightloss program.

    Ideally:  I would like to lose the 5lbs by mid-June and would love to get down to my goal weight by my b-day at the end of September. 

  • Name:Rachel Ultimate Goal: It's more than any of yours but I will be brave and post it here. Ideally I would like to loose 80lbs. I was on my way before I got pregnant with DS then I was working on it after he was born, but cruises and moving got in the way. Tools or Plans to help me reach it: I plan on counting calories (love the MyNetDiary app) and walking until we move and I get my treadmill back. Then I am hoping to start the couch to 5k program. I'd *ideally* like to reach my goal by: my 30th birthday in August 2012. Of course sooner would be better
