Ok I'm at that point after having a baby where my body is done with the freebie weight loss... it's time for me to put some effort in.
After my last pregnancy I had 20 pounds to lose on my own. After counting calories and exercising consistently, I did it! I lost all my weight just to get pregnant the next month...But that's ok! Because that will always be my goal - to lose all the baby weight before I get pregnant again.
And here I am again. This time with 15 pounds to work off on my own. So to kick start that I started running today. Now I am NOT a runner. In fact I hate it. I'm a swimmer. But swimming is a little harder to do with kids and takes more time so I'm going to start jogging again. I went for a 24 minute jog where I jogged/walked 1.5 miles. Yeah that's a 16 minute mile...but I'm ok with that because I haven't really exercised since last summer. Yup I'm one of those women who quits exercising and eats a lot of chocolate when pregnant. :-)

Anyway, I'll keep you posted on my progress. And Friday (tomorrow I have a wedding to go to) I'll start calorie counting again on an app called My Fitness Pal. You can check out my posts from how I lost the baby weight the first time here:
And I have to be patient with myself because I know I did a hard and great thing for these little girls and it was all worth it to get them!
