Lightbulb Starting again!

Hiya everyone!

I was a member ages ago but I traded 3FC for parenting sites when I became pregnant with my beautiful baby daughter!

I was a big girl before I became pregnant, and fortunately my weight didn't affect my pregnancy... I had an amazingly healthy pregnancy, no problems, and gave birth to our first child, Bailey, at home with a midwife (med free!!) in june...

I put on about 40lbs during pregnancy, which isn't terrible, but I was significantly overweight before becoming pregnant -- so it didn't help!

Anyway, I am ready to start again! My lil' one keeps me really active, so I know I have lost some weight post partum because I can fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans again yay!! (even though they are a 22, and tight, but still...)

So I am glad to be back, I really don't want to be an obese mommy... I don't care if I have a little "funk in the trunk" lol ... but I would love to be healthy and a reasonable size (about 12-14)...my daughter deserves a momma who can do all the things with her and not just sit on the sidelines!

Thanks for listening, hope to get to know some of you!

You got that right! My own daughter was definitely one of my biggest motivations.

Welcome back and congratulations on your beautiful new baby girl!

Hi there... Congrats on being a mom.... one of Gods greatest gifts for sure.... Im an older mom.. ( my youngest is 26) and I can relate to the post pregnancy weight issue as mine never left since 1978 not so funny.... well, I am a member of Tops and I love the support I get there..... I eat a very normal, healthy diet, exercise regular and the pounds are slowly dropping off... I wish you the best of luck on your weight loss journey and let me know how your doing....

Welcome back!
Congrats on your baby girl. And how incredibly cool that you had a home birth! If we ever have a fourth, I would love to have him/her at home! (Considering how quickly #3 was born, it would have made more sense to stay home! But I digress. LOL)

Thanks for all the nice responses! I have been doing well... for me, starting is the hardest part -- I suffer from "tomorrow" syndrome LOL.. so when I actually do start I am prety good at staying on plan for the most part...

So this is the third day and I am hopeful!

Thanks again for the support!


Laura-- my home birth was AWESOME!!! For low-risk women, a homebirth is as safe as a hospital birth according to the British Medical Journal study and others... I highly recommend it!!! It was SO empowering!! After that I felt like I could do ANYTHING... so I am excited to be starting this weight loss journey again...

Welcome and congrats! Good for you for being a postive role model and healthy mommy. My 3 motivate me too (also stress me out LOL). I joined this forum about a month ago and they are an awesome support.
