Weight Loss after Baby: Part 1

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Every time I have a wonderful kid I get to the point where I need to put some effort into losing weight. This often happens when there is stability at home and the scale keeps moving down. I know it is up to me to eat well, exercise and manage stress well so the weight comes off for good. Here are my precious stats, posts and the current number with a video for you:

First baby (April 2009):
Starting weight: 145 lbs
@ 9 months: 195 lbs
Second baby (July 2010):
Starting weight: 190 lbs
@ 9 months: 216 lbs
Final Weight: 156 lbs

Third baby (June 2012):
Starting Weight: 165 lbs
@ 9 months: 194 lbs
Current Weight: 170.8 lbs

Disclaimer: This journey is a process, not an event. Weight loss is not my full-time job. I'm a wife and mother first. Still, I am working on being a healthier wife and mother. In this journey I make many mistakes and learn from them. I am humbled by God's grace which empowers me to succeed. My hope is that you find encouragement to take small steps towards being a healthier you. There's only One who's perfect so I pressed towards the calling I have in God. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
