I have been very fortunate for the last year or so, in that I have been pretty much able to eat whatever I want whenever I want (except for a few months with morning sickness, and then not being able to eat dairy)...
Now that is starting to change! I have slowly started gaining back some weight after giving birth to Baby W 7 1/2 months ago! So, I am resorting to what has always worked for me in the past and that is Weight Watchers! I am not going to go to the meetings, but I still have all my little booklets and points finders, and I will be calculating each step of the way!
Weight Watchers is a great plan that really teaches you how to control your portions without ridding your diet of any specific things! I can still drink an occasional Mountain Dew and eat what I want as long as I count it! You also get extra eating points for working out...so it gives you motivation to get moving!
If you are a nursing mother, they have a plan for you as well! If you have never done WW before, and you are looking for a way to shed some pounds, I would recommend attending a meeting or two to try it out! You can also join on-line which is nice to keep up with your points!
I will do my best to keep you updated with my results...but I'm not revealing my starting weight. I will say that my goal is to lose 9 pounds, and that will probably take me 4 months if I lose 1/2 a pound to a pound per week.
I am looking forward to a great first Mother's Day weekend as a mama! If you are a mama, Happy Mother's Day to you! And if you aren't, hope you are able to spend it with your mama!
