Operation Get Skinny Update

Because I know you all are just dying to know how I'm doing, I thought I'd give you an update on my crusade to get back to my pre pregnancy, pre infertility treatments, weight and my progress so far.

Well. Its going pretty good. The weight loss has slowed down a little, but that was to be expected I did JUST have a baby and you always drop a ton of weight at first. Its always that last 10 pounds that is the hardest (although I still have around 20). I had a little set back with exercise 1 week because I was sick, then I had a major diet set back because of dreaded PMS. I need to learn how to control my diet while PMSing. I get BAD cravings for about 4 days before my period (and I mean cravings like no other!), so that was very difficult for me this month. The good news is that I didn't gain any weigh through all this, but I barely lost any either. I've only managed to lose about 3 pounds in the past 3 weeks or so, which is really isn't great. The important part is that I got back on track this week and have been hitting the gym or doing cardio at home and have been very diligent with my diet again.

So we are back on track to sporting a bikini in June (hey that's what I am telling myself to keep me going)!! And in efforts to "keep it real" I thought I would also share these frightening pictures of my 3 month post partum body...ya know because I really want to flaunt my pooch and all...excuse the fug make up less face, I did just work out!

From the front...
From the side...
AND the post partum pooch as I like to call it..

So here's to getting back to this very soon!! Stay tuned...

You look fabulous!! I am sooo jealous AND inspired. I am trying to lose my pregnancy weight too! Well, not hard. I have slipped to the dark side here lately. I am now a follower of your blog so that I can see how you are doing (and maybe help motivate myself!).
