195 LBS.
190 LBS
180 LBS!!

So, I didn’t want to write this post until I knew for a fact that I would stick to this weight loss. Because I have written a post before – and fell off track and I really didn’t want that to happen again. But this time – it’s for real folks.

I’ve lost 15 pounds!

A while back I saw something on my Instagram feed about a weight loss challenge called #alittletoofluffy that was headed up by the lovely Danielle @ Take Heart. So, I joined in immediately. I knew that losing weight would help our chances of conceiving – and I knew that I would feel better about myself after shedding some pounds.

Here is a little back story:

When I was pregnant with Wyatt I gained 70 lbs.
Yes, 70!
I went from being 160lbs – 230lbs.

You know how people say that when they get pregnant they are just going to eat whatever they want?
Well, that’s EXACTLY what I did.
And although having Pizza Hut multiple times a week was delicious, it wasn’t very healthy.

Wyatt was born weighing 8 lbs 9 oz – and he was a whole MONTH early.
The doctor told us that he would have been close to 11lbs if he was born on his due date.

During my pregnancy, I also developed an addiction to food.

So, now here I am – almost 20 months later – trying to lose the baby weight.
It’s definitely been difficult – and has required a lot of self control (and lean cuisines).
But I’m slowly getting back to a healthy weight.
And I couldn’t be happier about it.

I can’t wait for the day where I can write the post telling you I’m finally at my pre-pregnancy weight again! Just 20 more pounds!!
