I am VERY ready to be back in shape (and not keep hiding from cameras and deleting pics of myself).
Today I joined Weight Watchers Online, and I'm very hopeful. If you have tried WW before but haven't recently, they've changed their program a lot. I LOVE it! It actually encourages healthy eating and eating more whole foods instead of processed foods. The points are also not based on calories, fiber, and fat anymore. Instead they're based on fat, carbs, protein, and fiber. I think that's much better.
And here's the best part: every fruit and veggie is free! In the past, I would choose say a handful of pretzels over an apple because they were the same amount of points. But now, I choose the fruit every time.
So I plan on tracking my weight loss here on my blog in the right side bar, if you're interested. I'll let you know how the diet is going and if I have any good recipes to share. I have my one month post-partum checkup tomorrow with my OB, and I'm anxious to see when he tells me that I can start working out again. I'm very anxious to get back into the gym.
I also think that breastfeeding will be on my side this time around. With Levi I didn't start dieting until around 8-10 months post-partum because I didn't want to see a dip in my milk supply, as I had just barely enough for him. But with Isaac, I have a great supply and don't have to worry about it dipping, so dieting and working out shouldn't affect him at all. I'm thrilled about that.
So here I go! I feel like I'm on the start of an adventure because I'm so excited about it. :-P I'm hoping that I'll be back in my old jeans by the summer time!
