How far postpartum: 5 1/2 months
I am 5’10” and was 159 lbs when I found out I was pregnant. I was already unhappy with how much I weighed. During those 41 weeks i had gained a whopping 50 pounds. I had my daugher Jocee Grace Feb. 2nd 2010 via emergency c-section, because she had ingested meconeum while i was in labor. She was in the NICU for the first 72 hours of her life because she couldnt breath on her own, and i wasnt able to hold her until she was 2 days old. It was the worst feeling ever. But the minute i held her and she looked into my eyes, I knew that everything was going to be ok.
Of the 50 lbs i have lost 42. I love my beautiful baby Jocee and she is truly a God-send, but the changes in my body are very hard to deal with. My legs are fatter, my hips are wider, my boobs are saggy and I have stretch marks all over my thighs and lower belly. I have just recently started dieting and exercising and my goal is to weigh 145 by her 1st Birthday, its a long way away but it realistic! I love this website, it helps me realize I’m not alone and I’ll definitely keep updates!
