So i left this forum, early this year when i became pregnant. i was roughly 220lbs, when i joined, and had gotten to 189 when i fell pregnant.
I had my baby girl 6 1/2 weeks ago. (Auska Sylvanas is her name).
I got up to 231 pregnant and lost half the weight gain in the first week (which included the baby! =p) so im currently around 210 now.

I've started counting my calories again, which im finding very hard, the cold weather or the Depo shot i had, are making me ravenous; and i plan on beginning running again next week... just to be sure its safe.

So im back and i look forward to getting to know the new people and reknowing the oldies :)

Welcome :) What a unique name - what does it mean?

Mine is 5 months old. Good luck. I'm sure it's hard moreso from the tiredness/stress of having such a young baby, plus the depo shot.

Welcome back and congratulations on your baby girl.

lol thank you. Auska is japanese... they spell it Asuka.. and pronounce it as its spelt... Auska is pronounced like Oscar, without the R sound. And Sylvanas is the name of a witch on a game, where i met my husband 3-4 years ago. ^_^ (so that has a meaning to us)

(i just like telling people about her name) lol

Welcome back and good luck! Your story is similar to mine, although I waited until my DS was over 12 months to get back in the weight loss game, and I'm here to tell you it can be be done!

LOL! I could say your story is similar to mine, but I waited 10 years! :D Well, not really. I tried all that time, it just took ten years to get it right. And I love telling the stories behind my "babies'" names too. ;)

You didn't do so bad on the gain department! You ended up less than where you started! That's awesome!

I tried doing aerobics shortly after giving birth and found it very difficult on my chest. I suggest a really good sports bra for running. ;)
