Congratulations on your pregnancy.

I read through this tread but didn't see the answer anywhere. So I am sorry if you are repeating this but..... Did you do any other exercise/weights for you arms? (other than the 30 days shred, that is). I absolutely hate my saggy arms.

And yes..your story inspired me to run out and get the dvd, lol... I am on Day 21/ Lv 3 (straight) I didn't think i would get this far, lol. (I'm big so there is some modification..but I try to push myself a little more each time and come away dripping with sweat...yes, sweat after each workout ))

Thanks.

I've been wanting to post a 6 month maintenance post for like a month now.. but things have changed.. I don't know if it's the low carb(of course other low carbers tell me this! lol).. or just weight loss in general(but I'm thinking not as I lost weight many years ago to try and get pregnant and it did not work.. it was a low cal/low fat plan..) But anyhow.. My husband and were surprised a few weeks ago.. found out I was 9wks along. REALLY big shock as we tried to conceive for like 7 years with no luck and ended up having to do IVF to have our son.... I have been able to maintain for the most part so far. I am 13wks now. I have gained around 10lbs, but really all mostly belly as you can see. I have been having more carbs from veggies, fruits, and nuts. Really hope to keep low carb during this pregnancy and not do what I did with my last and gain around 70lbs! So far, so good So this is pretty much my 6 month maintenance post :-D
YOU LOOK AMAZING. CUTEST PREGNANCY BELLY. YOUR POST REALLY REALLY INSPIRED ME. I WENT DOWN OVER 2 SIZES, AND AM RECOMMITTED TO GO THE DISTANCE. JUST LOGGED ON AFTER A CRUISE (YIKES) AND AM NOT REINSPIRED, AND KNOW I WILL GET THERE.
CONGRATS AGAIN

Congratulations on the pregnancy!!!! I love baby bumps.

I also have to say that your story has truly inspired me. I have been yo yo dieting since I was 17. My highest weight was 214 (I was preggo) and lowest 129. Now I am starting again and currently weigh 177. BUT...I am determined to change my life and my body. Thank you for sharing your story.

Soooo!
I have now been "maintaining" for 1 full year after losing almost 90lbs!! I put maintaining in quotes only because as you know I have gained some weight.. lol I am 38 weeks pregnant and pretty much only gained BABY weight during this pregnancy. I have gained to date only 28 lbs. I was able to have a very healthy pregnancy by still eating lower carb. Will definitely have to post a new photo after baby is born in a few weeks :rheart:




And of course a new belly shot

Wow~~ your pics are amazing and you are such an inspiration/motivation for me...ive been off LC for almost a year and been working on getting back the past two weeks..i always eat more low carb than anything but was cheating a little and not exercising like i should. Your success story has inspired me to purchase the JM videos and give em a try...i have an adopted 3yr old, 2 yr old and almost one yr old lol so i stay busy but know i can fit these in....i will def be trying harder this year to make LC and exercise a life change...thanks for sharing and congrats on your new baby!

Congratulations on all your success. You look absolutely terrific. I ordered the Jillian Michaels DVD this morning. I was trying to find a DVD that was quick and would work with my schedule, and after seeing your results, I went with that. You are a huge inspiration for me. Congratulations on your pregnancy, too!

So many congrats are in order. First, for losing 80 pounds in under a year. Talk about WOWZA. You are a prime example of how taking action and doing something about your life really does pay off if you are willing to stay focused and work hard.

Secondly, congrats on the pregnancy. You are helping usher in a new generation of fit babies

Candace...I haven't read through ALL of your pages here on this post, but had to find the one where you talked about getting pregnant...I am back here after gaining all of my weigh back that I lost on LC a few years back (gained back 33 that I lost...)

Holy crap you are TOTALLY my inspiration right now, I'm printing off your picture and posting to my wall next to my eliptical downstairs...

I'm back because - well my hubby and I have been TTC for 2 years now and we are dealing with infertility - he has MFI (male factor / low everything) and I have one blocked tube. Our ONLY option is going to be IVF - which we will be starting this summer - after I lose some weight again (doc's orders...).

Seriously - I want to start crying right now, reading your post (course I won't since DH is sitting next to me, lol) but just knowing that you got pregnant NATURALLY is incredible!

Obviously I know I can't count of losing weight being able to "magically" get us pregnant...but I know that I MUST lose this weight again if I want any chance of it at all (especially through IVF).

Thank you SO much for this post as well as for your blog (which I've scrolled through before).

you rock!
