Losing the Baby Weight
Some women are lucky and drop the baby weight extremely fast with little to no effort, other women work hard and lose the weight fast, then there are those who work hard and slowly but surely lose it and of course the ones who do nothing and keep it on for an indefinite amount of time. I unfortunately fall into the third category no matter how desperately I wish I was in the first. With Forrest it took me almost the full year to lose it all but I did it and was 5 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight. With Lilah I gained more weight (I'll blame it on the stressful pregnancy ;) so I figured it would take me at least as long if not longer. I'm following the weight watcher diet and in a month I am down 10 pounds. I'm determined to get it all off and then some no matter how hard it is. I want this weight gone before I return to work in the fall (preferably by summer when I have to sport a bathing suit and sun dresses). I gained about 45 pounds, I am down 30 now and have 15 more to go to pre-pregnancy and then I'd like to lose another 10 or so. Hopefully this is do-able. I'm working hard but I do give myself a few cheat days here and there (what I love about weight watchers - it's practical). I'm looking forward to the nicer weather so we can get some exercise outdoors too.
