So after Gwenna was born (September 2008) I had a hard time shedding those extra lbs. I thought I was so heavy (keep in mind that i'm only 5'3"... so a healthy weight for me would be between 110 -130) at 145 lbs. Well needless to say I was a little down about my weight and especially how I looked but not enough to do anything about it. Well recently (June 2009) I was weighing in at 160 + lbs. and that's on my bathroom scale so you know I would've weighed in higher at the Dr.'s office! I decided to do something about this. I logged onto http://www.mypyramid.org/ and found a calorie intake that would help me loose weight and then did a little research and found some exercise programs that I definetly could do. I recieved wii active for my birthday and used it all the time. But my stomach still had that ugly after baby pouch! So I started in on the Denise Austin after baby work out on her Fit and Firm Pregnancy DVD and even though it was very mild I saw results almost instantly. Especially after I reeducated my abs.
Well, I've kept a graph on my wall and every week or so I weigh myself and see the damage. I now weigh 147 lbs. and it's been 2 months! And as long as I remember to practice my ab workouts I have a flat tummy without any special solutions etc.
As I loose weight I'll be adding to my blog. I'll put in the exercises I did (as long as they aren't copyrighted), things I ate, things I avoided, and what my next goal is.
My next goal is to reach 145 lbs. by the end of the month. I'm going to use the wii active 3x a week and use access bars (which help burn more fat than nothing); also, I'll continue to eat special K products and of course drink 8oz. water a day.
