The No Baby - Baby Weight

Time for another weight loss update!!

I am VERY excited to report that I have hit my first goal - to lose the weight I gained during my pregnancy with Morgan.  Yup, you read that right - 31lb down in 4 months!!!  Sorry, I am not generally one to pat myself on the back but I am really excited that I was able to pull the weight off before she was even half a year old!  But now it's time to tackle the next hurdle - what I fondly refer to as "the no baby - baby weight."

The no baby - baby weight is the 36 pounds I gained after my two miscarriages in 2010.  Recall that I discussed this here when I first posted about my weight loss goals.  We are 179 days from our Disney vacation and I have 36lb to get rid of.  That's about 6lb per month, not an unreasonable goal!  I am slowly starting to see the results of my hard work.  My size 14 pants that I bought at the beginning of the year are getting a bit baggy and my closet is slowly becoming a place that I can "clothing shop" for things I haven't worn in a long time.  These things keep me motivated!!!  That, and telling you guys how I'm doing ALSO keeps me motivated :)

On a related note - I made our Disney dining reservations yesterday and could not be more excited about our trip, even though it is 179 days away :)  I have several countdowns going - first up is my first 5K, which is in 24 days!!!  Surely between training for these races and trip planning some more of these stubborn pounds will melt away...


  1. Keep up the great work! You can do it!

  2. you are awesome! so proud of you! 1/2 marathon, here we come. :)

  3. Congratulations!! Your baby is beautiful!! Love your blog! Newest reader :)
