Yeah... the beginning of April....
Now that I do the math I realize it's probably not doable, but still, it's such a great feeling to know that probably before summer I will be back to my my pre-pregnancy weight even if it will have taken 19 years to lose it, LOL.
Rachael, I totally hear you, but don't beat yourself up about it.
In my case, in each of my four pregnancies I was actually at my lowest weights right after I had the baby and then packed on pounds, right up to my highest pregnant weight in the first couple months postpartum.
Not sure if I was hormonally vulnerable, or just found life with newborns stressful and confining (I think the latter) but my "pregnancy weight" in reality was mostly packed on immediately AFTER the babies were born.
