I'm happy to report that I have lost 6 pounds since my last post. It's a relief to see some progress. Over the past couple weeks, I've been counting calories (so tedious, but it works) and lifting weights, and doing a little cardio too. Counting calories has been my go-to method of weight loss after having babies.

Getting to the gym is never easy, but once I'm there, I feel awesome. I love it. I just need to remember that every night when I feel like watching TV, instead of working out.

I'm hoping to get down to my goal in the next 6 to 8 weeks. I really hope I can maintain this motivation. The holidays are always a terrible time to try and lose weight.

I'm back!

It's me again. I had another baby (yay!). So I get to start the dreaded process of losing weight again. I love my kids and I am SO THANKFUL that I am able to bear children, but man... I hate having to gain and lose weight over and over.

I gained about 5 pounds more with Luke than I did with Halle, and what do you know... I'm 5 pounds heavier now than I was at this point after having Halle. I have a total of 15 pounds to lose. That feels overwhelming to me.

Here is a picture of me right before I got pregnant with Luke. I hope to get back to this point within 3-4 months.

I am thinking of signing up for another half marathon. I really miss running, and I've been wanting to do another race for a long time now. I need to start looking into different races. I'll keep you posted.
