So I might as well be honest, I gained 45 pounds when I was pregnant with Emma. I don't really feel like I overate or went crazy with food while I was pregnant, but some how 45 pounds was the end result. Emma is almost 15 weeks old, about 15 pounds and maybe 25 inches long. As for me, I have lost 30 pounds and have 15 more to go. For the first time, I am wearing jeans that button up (size 8). I feel pretty good and hope that as Spring gets closer I can walk more, lose those last pounds, and wear my old clothes again.
This picture is from a few years ago, but a good idea of what I looked like before I got pregnant. My goal is to look like this again.
