Pregnancies' worth of weight gain, that is. I don't gain more than the "recommended" amount with each pregnancy, it's just that I tend to hold on to about half that each time. So, over 3 pregnancies, I had let about 40 pounds stick around. Not so good - for my health, energy level, or even example to my children.
Well, I have officially lost all of the weight I gained when pregnant with JMC. Yeah! I feel good about that, and for my goal of where I'd like to be. I'm not focusing on it too much. No dieting, no omitting food groups, or skipping meals. I am trying to stop eating when I'm full, go on more walks, play WiiFit, and even just play outside with the kids. That's it. It's slow going, but it's the healthy way to go about this, and with both JA and JT watching me closely, that's what I need to do.
