Update (Dalena)

June 5, 2012

Previous post here.

In my first post I had given myself a goal weight of 140lbs-145lbs to be reached within a year… Its been a year and I haven’t made it. I stopped dieting however I still ate fairly healthy. And I wasn’t working out as much as I should have been. I’ve increased my goal weight by 10lbs based on how I feel. If I ever make it to my original goal I will be thrilled if not I’m okay with it. I’ve accepted my body as it is. My only goal now is to be healthy and fit. Still for Chanel who just started walking!! Yay!!

For those who didn’t read my previous post I was 230 on delivery day… I lost 30 lbs the first 2 weeks after delivering via c-section. At 5 weeks postpartum I had only 8lbs to lose to be back to my pre-pregnancy weight of 185lbs. Today I am 175lbs… 10lbs under the weight I was at my first prenatal appt. That’s a total of 55lbs lost since delivery day. I’m now working towards my new goal. Hoping to lose 25lbs by my birthday in August. I’m eating 1200 calories a day and going on hours long walks. Hopefully I’ll make it this time. I definitely have more motivation then I did before… Edamame is my new favorite snack!!

Thank you for reading.

    You look awesome and your stomach is so flat! Even if you don’t lose another pound you already have a terrific figure. Way to go with the diet. Boy, it’s not easy to resist all the “bad stuff” so props to you for being so determined.

    You look great! Your stomach is so close to being completely flat and your stretch marks have faded beautifully! I hope I can look as good as you after my little one comes!!
