Postpartum Weight Loss: Food Log!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Tracking what I ate with the ladies here was super helpful when I was pregnant. It gave me some accountability- I was less likely to make an unhealthy choice if I had to "report" it later. So, in that mindset, I'm starting a thread for postpartum weight-loss focused eating  :)  Come as you are!

 

I'm at about 153 now (actually up from my postpartum weight) and trying to balance calories in with calories out. Trying to eat mostly plant-based.

 

My goal weight would be 140 (and I'll check in then to see what I think.) I'm nursing, walking a lot, on my feet a lot. No other real "exercise."

Okay, after a truly epic Halloween candy binge last night, here we go!

 

Breakfast: 1/2 apple spread with 1/4 tbsp. natural pbutter, 2 tbsp. org. raw walnuts, 1 scoop mila chia seed powder w/ 1c unsweetened almond milk and 1 tbsp. pine nuts

hot water w/ lemon, coffee w/ almond milk

 

Will edit to update as day goes on.

What a great idea! I am struggling to get to the gym (read: I haven't actually made it there to join yet). I think I will start (trying) to log tomorrow since today has been Halloween candy, a bacon-stuffed baked potato, and a package of gummies. 

 

I am nursing, and not much else. When I take the dog out for a walk I use the free app "Charity Miles" which donates money to the charity of your choice based on how far you go. I was skeptical at first but it is totally legit and an added motivation to go the extra block!
