After I delivered Christian, I weighed 199 pounds.
I'd rather weigh 299 pounds and have a son, than weigh 118 without one, but that wasn't a decision I was given. So here I am. Overweight and childless, a hard combination. This isn't a pity post. I don't have to tell you how much I weigh, but I want to.
I did it once, back in 2012, and it helped to have y'all following along for accountability. 128 is what I weigh when I'm skinny, so that'll be the goal. That's 71 pounds to lose this year. I didn't gain it all from pregnancy, but I'd like to lose as much as I can before God gives us another baby. On Wednesday I have my first doctor's appointment since our son's heart stopped beating. Hopefully they'll clear me to exercise then. I've been walking and eating well this month. Better than I have in my entire life, in fact. I'm looking forward to the February weigh in.
Here's a recipe for my favorite green smoothie:
Unsweetened Almond Milk: 1 Cup
Kale: 4 Stalks
Lemon Juice: 2 Capfuls
I hope your 2015 is healthy! If you wanna join me in weight loss, let me know! We ladies especially could use some more camaraderie!
