I gained 24 pounds in my first pregnancy and a whopping 30 pounds during this pregnancy.
When I checked my weight within a few weeks after delivery, my scale showed 18 pounds less. That happiness short-lived. Then, our newborn got fever and we had to admit her to the hospital. I was so upset that the doctor asked me to leave the room when they did her tests. We stayed at the hospital for the next 2 days and this unhappy mom did lots of binge eating that added 3 more pounds on my weight. Ironically, the hospital didn’t provide any healthy meal nor do they have any healthy options in the nutrition room (pantry). So, even the hospital didn’t help either. That said, now I need to lose 15 pounds to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight.
Throughout the week I eat clean and once a week I splurge on my meal. It’s mostly pizza or our favorite Chinese takeout.
I also don’t track my calorie intake. I eat whatever I like as long as its healthy.
I just started working out last week. Definitely not able to run like before. So starting out slow and walking 20 minutes every day. Then 10 minutes of Yoga. My work out routine will change/improve eventually.
Tracking the Progress:
I will be tracking my progress, meals, snacks, and workout in my Instagram page. It’s more apt for Instagram than Facebook page. If you’re in Instagram, ping me to get to know you.
If you have some extra pounds to lose, I’d love if you can join me in the process. It will be fun if we do it together. Just let me know.
