That train is never late… New Year, New Me! Yes, I’m on that! The new year encourages a fresh start. We can start over any day but something about round out the end of the year makes us feel like we have a clean slate and I’m here for it. I’ve been struggling to get back to my pre-baby weight from both Harper and Peyton. That may never happen but I’m still determined to be in the best shape for ME and fit back in to the clothes in my closet.
I’ve been MIA for few days. I took the girls to Chicago for to spend some time with my mom. This was my first time traveling by myself with two kids and I don’t recommend it. Thank God I didn’t lose anyone and we made it back home in one piece. After stuffing my face with Chicago style pizza and Portillos, I’m back on my weight loss plan. It’s hard to lose weight. Throw in two kids and a husband that is looking in your face every night at dinnertime, it can feel impossible. I’ve managed to keep Peyton and Mister’s stomaches full while I’m losing weight. Here are my tips to keep everyone happy.
My weigh-loss plan has been going awesome. If you haven’t heard, I’m doing Weight Watchers with Oprah (in my head). The Weight Watchers plan has always worked for me. I love bread and pasta. Weight Watchers allows me to keep eating the things that I love. I shared last week my diet tips. This week I’m sharing my favorite Weight Watchers meals. Once I find something I like and helps my waistline, I’ll keep it on repeat.
I’m happy to report that I’m a few pounds BELOW my pre-baby weight *hits the Nae Nae*. I’ve loss over 10 pounds in the last month since I started my snap back journey. Although I am very proud of my accomplishment, I still have more work to do. I might be back to my pre-baby weight, but I was about 20 pounds heavier than I wanted to be. Using Weight Watchers to track my diet and working out, I’m sure I will be where I need to be in no time. I’ve dropped out of Weight Watcher’s several times in the past even thought I lost weight every time I was on the plan. Now that I look back, I know why I dropped out. I wanted to share tips on how to succeed at any weight loss plan you decide to use.
Diet Diaries is back! It’s been 4 months since Harper’s arrival and I’m ready to get back to my old self (with a few extra war wounds). Towards the end of my pregnancy all I wanted to do was get my body back. Not that my body was so hot, but being pregnant makes you appreciate the “old” body you had. I would look at old pictures of myself and say “I can’t believe I thought I was big then”. Boy what I wouldn’t give to get that body back now. Instead of whining and dreaming about it, I decided to do something about it. Check out my video to learn what I’m doing for my postpartum snapback!
