Default Reached goal, 7.5 months post-partum



My original goal was 5'5 and 125lbs but once I reached around 133lbs, I've realized I'm pretty much there.

My first set of pictures is 6 weeks post-partum, I gained over 40lbs at 165lbs when I left the hospital, and yesterday at 134lbs.

I did 5 months of heavy heavy weight training, little cardio (mostly dog walking with baby in sling), and kept on my meal plan. I also fell off the wagon a bit with postpartum depression (I ate!) but I managed to get through it.

(Notice the same bottoms)

That is excellent. What weight training routines did you do? Squats, bench, rows?

^Yes

My main exercise is the squat (I now do 3x5 at 115lbs with my full warmup sets before), bench (struggling but at 3x5 65lbs), haven't done too many rows, I do pullups (assisted) instead for some variety, and then press as well as deadlift (I do 1 heavy set 1x5 rather than 3x5).

WOW - you look amazing! Such a short time for such an obvious change in your body shape - and all with a little baby to take care of - great job! Would you mind sharing what meal plan you followed/how often/long you worked out?

thanks so much and congrats again!
