Less of me

14 pounds less to be exact. I have officially lost 14 pounds and yes I have been trying.I have 44 more to go in order to get to my wedding weight aka my pre fertility med weight but to get to my pre pregnancy weight I have to get down only 29 more pounds.(yes fertility meds gave me a nice 15 pounds ) I am shooting for the pre fertility med weight though.So now you will notice I have added a new ticker to my blog a weight loss ticker. I did manage to drop the 14 pounds in only 4 weeks so I optimistic that I will get the rest off by my goal which I have set to be August 23rd.At the very least I hope to hit my pre pregnancy weight by then.I have had to use will power and rethink how I eat, which has been surprisingly easy now that I am not on hormones of any kind, pregnant or beast feeding and have no cravings at all.Wish me luck girls.This is about more than vanity it is about my health I want to feel like the old me again. And we all know the story about the scale being 20+ pounds off on the low side at the OB's during my whole pregnancy "sigh" ;-p Ehh I made it through all this infertility stuff I will make it through this right girls! So here I go wish me luck...

Good job! It is hard to lose weight with the sleep deprivation and stress of a newborn!

Congrats, on the weight loss! You are well on your way to your goal, just stay focused. It's ok to treat yourself one indulgence a week. Then it's back to grind. I lost 35 pounds that way a few years ago. I would take one meal off, one day a week, then the next meal I was right back on for the reast of the week. Doing it that way made seem to make it a little easier, It wasn't such a dread. I knew if I worked hard all week I had that one meal to reward myself with. You just have to stay strong and not fall off when you have your reward meal. I need to take my own advice again! ;-) You can do it!! ((Hugs))
