Default 14 months postpartum...It's about time!

I started a week ago yesterday at 212. I decided 4 kids or not it is time to take a little bit for me to take care of myself.

All help, advice and encouragement is needed. Any challenges you know,both weight challenges and cardio/strength/exercise challenges that you know of would be great. I love these.

8 days of induction down!

You will never know how far you can go until you push yourself to the limit and EXCEED it!

WTG! You can do it! You are starting way ahead of me. My "baby" is seven years old, and I just now lost the "baby weight."

I don't do challenges anymore because it puts too much pressure on me. I do better without a challenge, but if you like that sort of thing, I'm sure you can find one around here. Good luck!!

I'm having trouble losing the last 20 lbs of baby weight. I just joined this site. I am also on meds that are supposed to be making me gain so I guess it is a "success" if I maintain. Still trying though.

My baby is a toddler (20 months).

Hi, LoriAs!

I was just browsing the site when I saw your post and had to reply. Good for you! We have a bit in common - my daughter is 14 months old as of yesterday, and she is also my fourth! I have 3 boys, 9, and twins that are 6. I have been on a start stop cycle these past months with dieting - feeling frustrated and very down about the whole thing - but I'm sure this will pass.

Prior to my latest pregnancy I had lost 26 lbs, so you'd think this would be easier. I have between 50 and 60 to lose (ticker isn't accurate).

Good luck! You should feel really proud that you've had such a strong start!

Great picture of your kids!
The secret to happiness is not getting what you want, but wanting what you have.

Good for you!

My baby will be 3 on Saturday and I think his weight is finally off. I'm still carrying around 30lbs from my first who is 6.

#1: 191 - No longer obese; Met 10/26/2011
#2: 180 - My 'lightest' after having kids; Met 11/16/2011
#3: 170 - Just because I needed an in between goal!
#4: 160/159 - My 'heaviest' before having kids/no longer overweight
Final: 150 - digging through my old 'skinny' clothes!
