1 Year PP Update (Clarisse)

May 30, 2009

24 years old
1st pregnancy/ birth
Child is 1 year old

My name is Clarisse and I have a 1 year old son named Aiden. I wanted to share with you my struggle on losing The weight I gained and some .

I was down to 155 the beginning of 2006-07 then couple of months later went up to 188. The day I found out i pregnant was during the summer of 07, I remember looking down at my scale and it said 188 pounds. I didn’t know whether to be sad cause i was going to get Fat or happy with the thought of becoming a mother. I spent my teen years dieting and exercising trying to fit in as the “hottie” in my high school year.

I went up to 247 pounds during my 9 mnths pregnancy.

The first week I was 217 pounds … Then eventually stayed at 211 the first 6 mnths.

Breastfeeding didn’t help me lose all the weight.

I stopped breastfeeding my son when he was 6 mnths because I wanted to go back to continuing my school.

I enrolled two PE classes with my bestfriend and started eating Lean Cuisine and Smartones for 3 months and thats when I lost the last 20 pounds of my pregnancy weight gain.

It’s been 1 year and Im FINALLY back to where I started 188 pounds.

I know it’s still alot specially with my 5’1 frame but i’m really trying to reach my ultimate goal.

It was a long and hard journey but it was worth it. Now I hope to come back to this website and update u with my second round of weightloss goal.

My goal is to lose 30 pounds before the year is over for my Spring Wedding event.

I included pictures of me when I was at my heaviest and my After pictures at 187 pounds.

Goodluck mommies!
you can do it!
