For the past month and a half, I've been working at getting regular exercise back into my routine.
I'd been at the same weight since 6 weeks after I gave birth. And that was actually up a few pounds from my post-birth low. I was at my highest non-pregnant weight. It was higher than I ever had been after Elizabeth's birth.
I was about a year post-partum when I finally started to shed the weight after Elizabeth was born. Here I am, again about a year post-partum, finally at a point where I can start managing some weight loss.
I was actually inspired by being sick. We had an unpleasant illness in our house that caused me to loose 4 pounds in one day. Extreme. However, once I was done and recovered, I maintained the lowered weight. Well, Gee, here I am just 10 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight!
For the most part, I've managed to exercise at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week. I found some exercise videos on Netflix, and I stream them to my TV, giving me an assortment of videos. I've been doing some strength training and some walking on the treadmill, too.
I haven't been managing my food very well (all the sweets in the past 3 weeks has not done favors for my weight.)
I'm please, though, that I'm exercising again. I have a way to go - I'm aiming to get rid of about 35 pounds. But I'm looking forward to feeling better every inch of the way!
