WOE: lost 23 lbs on Medi Weightloss '11, now JUDDD
Start Date: JUDDD start: May 15, 2012
Introducing myself

I have been lurking here for awhile and I wanted to jump in and introduce myself.

I have had 2 babies in 2 years. They are 16 months apart. I had infertility to conceive our first and gained over 30 lbs, on top of the 20 I was already carrying around, doing infertility treatments. None of those treatments worked for us, but we wound up getting pregnant on our own after trying for 33 cycles! After I had our son in July 2010 and stopped breastfeeding in January 2011, I was up to 191 pounds! I started Medi Weight loss in January 2011 and got down to 168 lbs before finding out I was pregnant again that April ! Very suprised (and overjoyed!) to say the least!

Now that I have had my beautiful daughter and we have stopped breastfeeding, I am happy to say that I am not far from where I left off this time last year at 171 lbs. Oh, and I had my tubes tied in January so no more suprise babies.

I love my kids more than anything in the world and I wouldnt change a thing but my body took a real beating with my pregnancies. I was high risk both times, on bed rest for a lot of both pregnancies as well. My muscle tone is improving but still quite poor. I also work full time at an office and I am chained to the desk most of the day so that doesnt help. I am trying to get up and walk a few times a day.

I am 5'6". My first goal is to get to wedding weight which about 145 lbs. At that time I will assess if I want to keep going and get under 130. My dream weight is 127lbs....high school weight. Not sure if that is do-able since I am pushing 40 and dont have much time to exercise, besides taking the kids on stroller rides! My biggest concern with the diet is how my body will respond since I am still up every 3 hours to feed my baby girl. I think the sleep deprevation might slow me down some.

Anyway, I know the program works and I am excited to be restarting. I went in yesterday and got my shots and prescription. I started everything today. My weigh in will be on Tuesdays!

If anyone wants to buddy up that would be great!

I am sure you will do fine, even sleep deprived I originally set my goal at 135 and since I seem to just be steady with the loss I changed it to my dream goal of 125! I only have 2 nights a week of Karate other than random walking so I understand the excercise issue but I have to say i think most of it is what you put in your mouth! Stick with it and you will lose
