Getting There Finally! (Heidi)

November 30, 2011

Previous post here.

19 years old
1 pregnancy, 1 birth
9.5 months PP

When I first wrote back in May, I was really in a rough spot with my weight and self-esteem issues. I still don’t feel I’m at my “ideal” weight, but I do feel a lot better about myself.

My Stats as of 10/31/11:

Height:
5′ 2″ (hasn’t changed a bit, haha!)

High Weight:
157 lbs.

Weight before pregnancy:
134 lbs.

Current Weight:
129 lbs. (whoa!)

Goal Weight:
110 lbs.

I feel amazing. My self-confidence definitely has boosted a bit, as has my overall mood. I’m still breastfeeding, but mostly pumping, because my son will just NOT sit still long enough to nurse. And he BITES now. Major ouch. Little guy has 4 teeth, has been crawling for awhile, and is cruising and standing very well, but he still isn’t confident enough to walk. I’ll be in trouble when he can though!

Don’t lose hope ladies, it can be done. I finally got off my butt and started exercising and keeping track of what I ate, and the weight started to come off. A couple months ago, I’d down 4 of the huge KitKat bars (the one that is 3 normal KitKats in one) and think nothing of it. That was pretty much the same as eating about 4 Big Macs (calorie-wise) and I didn’t even notice or care! And I ate more on top of that, KitKats were just a snack. Thinking of it now disgusts me, but I can’t say I don’t still crave tons of chocolate. I’m a chocoholic, and it’s made losing weight a challenge, but I use a calorie tracker, and only eat chocolate in moderation, so I’m usually pretty good about it. I also stopped drinking pretty much everything except water. Occasionally, I’ll have a diet soda or some juice, but I’ve noticed nothing really quenches my thirst like water does.

Oh, and I realized in my previous post, it mentioned my wedding date of Nov 12th. Lol, we changed that, we’re not getting married until sometime next year (hopefully!), things have gotten rough financially. He thinks I look great, btw. I still feel I need some work, but I won’t deny I’m looking okay these days.

Time for pictures! I know a lot of ladies are interested in tummies, I know I am lol. I’m striving for as slim as I can get my tummy, but still tons of work to do there!

    You basically remind me of me. I usually don’t comment on stories on this website.. But I’m also 19, still with the dad, and struggled like your previous post before this one. AND a chocoholic (which is one of my main issues).. I’m still working on my weight though. I just want to say your one of the few stories on here that really hit me and inspires me to keep going with this dumb diet :). Thank you, and you look awesome! I’m jealous of your boobs, hahaha. And your son is adorable.

    You look great. You and I weigh about the same and we have similar weight loss goals. My body looks a lot like yours especially in the hip area. You have bigger boobs. I’m jealous. :)

    Hey Heidi, you look amazing, I think 110 is uneccesary. You are sooo cute! lol I was 207lbs before my pregnancy 218lbs after I had my son and now my son is 13 months and I’m 252 lbs. I’m feeling defeated. I breast fed but when I went back to school I had to stop. I am 19 years old too. Pre-pregnancy I was 5’7″ now im 5’5″ which doesn’t help. lol Maybe we can become friends.
