McFatty Monday..

Monday, January 4, 2010

So, I've decided to join Blair & others in the quest for weight loss. Aidan didn't bring on huge amounts of pregnancy weight (I'm below my prepregnancy weight, actually) but he did bring on loose skin, wider hips, and a flabby belly that just won't stop! I've always hated my belly, so this is a good way to address the issue with other moms.

I've alwyas been a bit larger, never the size 2 girl. Prepregnancy I proudly rocked size 13 jeans, and even they sometimes gave me muffin top. Now after Aidan I can wear size 11 jeans, with almost no muffin top but I still don't feel comfortable in my own skin. You can forget being naked! Not very good for my self esteem, or our sex life. ;)

I don't have a plan, per se. Portion control, and cut down on carbs. Carbs blow me up like a damn balloon, and make me retain tons of water. I'm not going all crazy ZOMG THERE WAS A BREADCRUMB ON MY SALAD but a little control does a body good.

As for working out, I'll probably do the 30 Day Shred, and then some walks with Aidan & Mike, maybe some bike riding when Mike is watching Aidan. I also have some free weights I can lift to help tone up my arms, aka the fatness. I had an exercise ball, but my damn cats felt the need to try to balance on top of it, and it died a slow death, leaking air until there was none left. RIP exercise ball, you were my good friend.

So, in short. Fatty is going to try to tone it up a little with the help and motivation from a wonderful bunch of girls. :)

Height: 5'7"
Prepregnancy: 195 lbs
Highest During Pregnancy: 225 lbs
6 Weeks Post Partum: 190 lbs

So my starting weight for this challenge is 190 lbs, and ideally I'd like to reach 130 lbs, but 150 is my goal for now. At 150 I am happy and more confident, and that's my main goal. :)
