Another couch to 5ker here! I did it after my first one too and it was great. I skipped the 1st week and just finished w2 today. My weight's not going anywhere though:( I feel like I'm always gonna have this belly! All my tanks are tight too, so I've been wearing my babe a lot to hide it;)

Hi everyone

I'd like to join in im TTC so I'd like to loose some of the xtra weight I have taken over the years before about 35 lb before I add pregnancy weight to that cause I'm not sure I'll be able to loose more than 40 lbs. so if I can loose 10 now that will be wonderful for me.

I know!  I forgot about that extra benefit of babywearing :)  Also helps stretch my closet a little further since it doesn't really matter what I'm wearing under my wrap!

 

My good news is that it looks like I may actually be down a lb.  I'm hoping once things start moving they'll keep going.  I have tried replacing some of that ice cream with alternatives... the milk didn't cut but yogurt was a good idea (thanks Hildare).  I've also been having coconut ice bars-- portion control and much less sweet. 

 

How's everyone else doing... weight and in general?

I gained two lbs! The weather has been really up and down lately, but we finally had a beautiful day yesterday so I took ds out for a really nice long walk through the hilly parks nearby, which felt really good. I'm hoping that we will stop having random snow storms soon so I can get out more.

I still have 15 to get back to pre-pregnancy weight (down from the 43 I gained).I've been trying to workout in the evenings when dh is home, but it's just not working. So yeah the baby-wearing is most of my workout. We go out every day and walk around our property which has a nice little hill.

Our food is pretty good already so not a lot to change that would make a big difference. I've been doing smoothies for breakfast (second the Cabot Greek yogurt here!) instead of a bread product and dessert most nights is a chocolate square.

I know they say it took 9 months to put it on and it can take that long to get it off, but I'd really like to be able to wear something besides maternity clothes or yoga pants.
