Almost 8 weeks PP here and I'm determined to get back into shape faster than the 2 years it took after Z I started Baby & Me yoga 2 weeks ago and walking last week, so it's a start!

Initial Goals:
Goal to be back to pre-preg weight by May 1 - 4 lbs to go!
Goal to be swimsuit-decent by beach vacation mid-June (regardless of the number on the scale, I just want to be able to wear a suit without being horrible self-conscious)

Pounds to lose to middle weight goal: 9
Pounds to lose for overall weight goal: 14

Woot woot!
 
32 weeks 5 days pregnant, had my appointment today and my midwife told me I weigh 20 lbs. less now than I did at the same point in my first pregnancy (I started at the same weight both times). Thumbs%20Up My blood pressure is remaining normal this time as well. I think all the exercise is really doing the trick! 6 weeks from today is my c/s so if I can maintain a 1-lb. per week weight gain I will gain about 35 lbs total (rather than 60!).

Way to go Erin on limiting the preg weight gain!!
 
I'm down to 163 from 181 in December, so I'm pretty happy...I haven't been posting much, but we started a weight loss challenge at work between the 4 of us at my smaller workplace and its been quite helpful in making me think before I eat.  I'm also trying to get back to more exercise, but it sure would be nice if spring would come to make it a bit easier to get outside!

I am sitting at 171 now so I have actually lost a full 10lbs since I lost my initial baby weight.  Another 10 lbs to be where I was pre prego, but I am able to wear the jeans I had then Confused

Great job, Erin! I'm sure you must feel so much better this time :)

I'm definitely not going to make it to my 1st goal by May 1. Just like last time, my body is stubbornly hanging onto those last couple of pounds of baby weight I'm trying to not think about the number so much and focus on getting more exercise and my fitness.

130 lbs this morning.
 
I've been walking everyday though sometimes it's just the the ice cream place. Embarrassed
 
I started thinking about some of the stuff I used to be able to do and think that's where I want to place my goals. Granted I'm not ever going to have my 17 year old body back, but I should be able to think about doing somethings without killing myself.
 
So I aspire to be able to:
Run a 6 min mile
Cartwheel, i figured double back handspringning was out of the question
Do the splits, maybe shoot for elevated splits, but don't know that I could ever fully support my weight on my hands again
Rehone my volleyball and softball skills, ie pitch a strait shot and set a volleyball a dozen or so times w/o flopping it

Final check in till post-baby:

Start weight: 135 (ish)
Weight at last OB appointment before delivery: 172
total gain for this pregnancy: 37 lbs. So 2 lbs over my goal, but not bad! Much better than 60 for my last one!
 
I suspect I'll have 15-20 lbs. or so to lose after the initial weight loss from the baby, but mainly after the first 8 weeks or so I will focus on getting back into shape by exercise. I'll be BF'ing so won't do too strict of a diet but will try to eat healthy.

How's everyone doing?
 
I started working out again this week so here's my new stats. I'm not losing as fast as I'd like, eating too many carbs & sweets I think. Embarrassed
 
Starting weight: 160 & a size 12
Goal weight: 135 & a size 6-8
Fitness goal: run a 5K October 22 (Susan G. Komen run)
 
Last pregnancy I lost the weight without really trying but never toned up or lost my tummy. This time I'm going to focus more on getting fit and toned. I'm doing the C25K program 3x a week and will lift weights 3x a week using the program from the Body Sculpting Bible for Women. I used that to get in shape for my wedding and it was awesome.

Checking in again today!
Really need to add exercise back into my routine regularly again.  That is my next personal goal. I did lose a pound from last week, but I think it was just from sweating it off in the 90+ degree heat and having no A/C for a day.LOL
 
Starting: 137lbs., size 6-8
Current: 136lbs.
Goal: 120-125lbs., size 4

Checking in with you girls!  I'm down to 139, my goal is 130.  My bridesmaid dress for my friends wedding is keeping me in check, I tried it on today and it FITS.  The lady took it in too much and I couldn't even zip the inside zipper a couple of weeks ago, and now I can do it myself and spin it around.  It's a little tight but not overbearing.  I'd like to be 135 at her wedding in 16 days.

I've been stuck at 130 lbs for the summer. I figured my body had finally regulated to where it wanted to be. Since the weather cooled this week we've been walking more. And I weighed myself this morning. I usually weigh before eating and showering, but I was curious after my shower. So even with a full belly and wet hair I'm at 129. I broke the plateau! Makes me motivated again! And I feel less guilty about the fried cinnamon rolls my uncle brought us yesterday.

I started tracking food and exercise on http://www.myfitnesspal.com. Pretty good site so far.

I'm far from meeting my exercise goals so far.

I'm serious about losing my baby weight.  Starting today, I've stopped having lunch AND dinner deserts (my husband has a sweet tooth and runs 20 miles a week so he can eat whatever he wants.  I have realized I can't).
