Starting back after having a baby

Postby Lena » October 12th, 2008, 9:47 am

I had a baby six months ago and have gained virtually all of the weight back that I had lost two years ago. As I have watched my friends and family start and restart on program I have been dying to start again and finally did two weeks ago! I am so excited and anxious to lose this weight again...I have bins of clothes that I want to get into, considering the only clothes that fit me right now are maternity clothes.

I decided that even though I feel a little awkward that I want to participate in the forum this time instead of just reading the messages. I want to do whatever it takes to not only lose the weight, but to keep it off this time!

I look forward to getting to know others of you with the same goals!

Welcome Lena! Good for you for taking that step, meaning deciding it's a good time to do a while without quite as much food-gratification. I know after pregnancy is a motivating time to see just how good you can look again and how fast you can do it. That should help you. You might find, like I do, that the forum is a big help when you're in need of some reassurance that we can keep doing this. Glad to see you.

I'm glad you're going to post and not lurk as you're losing, we need some color commentators around here if we're going to liven it back up!

Nice to meetcha!
