A week after Paul's birth I successfully lost 20 of the 45 pounds without any effort. Three weeks later I have maybe lost a pound of those remaining 25 pounds. I'm not being hard on myself about it, because I realize A) I had a baby three weeks ago B) I had a baby three weeks ago, and C) I had a baby three weeks ago. Still, I'm anxious to fit into my capris from last summer, and to see my normal body return. After Luke I was under my pre-baby weight once he was six months old. Thinking that I'm almost three years older and am caring for two children now, my guide will be "nine months to put it on, nine months to take it off."If it's happens faster than that, wonderful, but I want to motivate, not discourage myself.
So, every Wednesday I'll post what I'm doing that week to work toward my goal. This week it's eating breakfast. Other than a few cups of coffee in the morning I haven't eaten breakfast since the baby has been born. By noon I'm starving and then it seems like I'm trying to catch up on calories for the rest of the day. In an effort to be healthy and to start the day on the right foot I'm going to try very hard to eat breakfast every morning. I started this morning with oatmeal. Hopefully I'll see an impact in my energy and a leveling of my hunger level. Here's to happy, healthy mamas!
