Pre-pregnancy, I was 145.
At hospital admission, I was 194. 49lbs! Good grief.
About a month post-delivery, I was down to 150.
I'm now up to 155. And 90% of it is my stomach. So depressing.
My only goal is to back to my pre-pregnancy weight/work on my belly. I'm not expecting perfection. Obviously, carrying a child, the chances of you looking exactly like you did prior to being pregnant is slim to none, so I'm being realistic. I just want it to look BETTER.
I'm scared to do any exercising/dieting while I breastfeed. Is that bad? 1) Running hurts my boobs, LOL. 2) I already eat SO much, I might drive myself into bankruptcy if I started exercising, too. 3) I'm afraid of hurting/drying up my supply. 4) I know this is a lame excuse, but I am so GO, GO, GO with school/work/housework/husband/animal/kids, when I do have a second to myself, I like to sit and relax.
I do crunches at night while kiddo naps, about 100/night... And, that's about it.
Also, it's cold. I don't want to take my kiddo out in it, and the only time I'd get a chance to walk with him would be in the evenings/nights when it's even colder, so I'm pretty much stuck inside.
I keep telling myself that I'll get serious about it when I quit breastfeeding and/or it gets nicer outside. Man, I'm just full of excuses.
