Those hormones are awful! I am incredibly thankful for my 2 babies, but they just wreak havoc on you.

Just curious--when you were losing weight, about how many calories were you eating a day and how often were you working out? Did you limit carbs/sugar or just rely mostly on calroie counting? I have about 40 lbs to lose and trying to find the best plan for me! Right now I am doing Wonderslim and eating a lean meal for dinner (meat & veggies). Any tips or things that worked best for you would be helpful to all of us!!
I limited fat and just generally avoided sugary foods, b/c I have a huge sensitivity to foods always tasting overly-sweet. I joined my YMCA and they have an online site where you can track your calories, track workouts, etc. Very similar to other calorie counters 3FC members use. I liked this one, b/c after I put my foods in for the day, it told me my breakdown of fat/carbs/protein. I aimed for 20% fat, 30% protein and 50% carbs. I didn't hit it exactly everyday, but I was pretty close.

In the beginning I worked out 4-6 times a week, usually for 20-30 minutes. I was badly out of shape and I knew from previous attempts that being too gung-ho in the beginning always hurt me in the end. After the first month or so, I could feel myself getting stronger, so I would walk longer, add inclines, tried cardio classes, etc. I found that I love to go for long bike rides in my neighborhood, especially in nice weather. Very peaceful.

It was interesting, and simultaneously confusing, to see that as the months went on, I required more calories and could sustain less workouts. My body was using up it's fat stores. So now I eat approx. 1800/day to MAINTAIN, and although I work-out 3-4 times a week, each of those is usually very high impact and hardcore. I really bust it out, and now I am at the point where I find myself disappointed if my cardio class wasn't insane.

YOU CAN DO THIS! Find support. Real support, not just kind words. Whether it is a workout buddy, supportive family, etc. You are probably going to want to quit. We all do. I can't tell you how many times my hubby just sat patiently and listened to me moan about how much it sucks, yadda, yadda. I would vent and then get right back to it.

WOW! WOW! WOW! Congratulations! You should be SO proud of yourself for your accomplishment. I do not know what a Mommy Doughnut is, but I sure didn't see one in your photos. You look healthy, toned, and happy.

You're an inspiration!

WOW!!! You look uber fantastic! Congratulations on achieving your goal and thank you for posting your pics. Can't tell you how much inspiration they give me (and I'm sure others). I was concerned that I"d start munching tonight . . . if I start to feel that urge I'm going to remember your pics and stay strong. WTG!

Amazing!! You look fantastic! Really a great example of setting your mind to something and accomplishing it. I like the idea of the 100 day challenge, I might steal it.

Congrats on reaching your goal! I absolutely love your bikini. Where did you get it? You make me want to try Zumba. I have it offered at my gym but I never get around to trying it.

You look incredible! LOL on the mama doughnut, but I've met women who successfully got rid of it over the years. Good Luck!
