I'm so glad I found this site! I've always found that food journals work so well and it's about time I started again!
My son was born back in May and during my pregnancy I gained 50 pounds. It was a bummer b/c I stayed pretty active working out 4 days a week until late in my third trimester and I still gained the weight. Now I need to lose it and I'm having such a hard time!
I used to be obese growing up and I lost 90 pounds over a period of 4 years. After that I lost a bit more and was able to maintain and toned. I'm currently 205 and would like to get back to 160 by my son's first birthday.
It's a huge goal which I know I probably won't make but I need some motivation!! Looking in the mirror is no fun and there are pre-pregnancy clothes that are calling out my name!!!
I'm going to try to stick to 1300-1500 cals/day and I've been working out every other day during the week and then Saturdays.
