Operation Skinny Mama: an update

Oh boy. I've written about this topic before.

I wrote about my post-baby #2 body here & I gave an update here. Well, after that second update I kind of fell off the wagon. I needed to start pumping more & therefore had to increase my calories. I quit Weight Watchers so I could focus on building up my milk supply. 

I didn't gain weight, but I certainly wasn't losing it either. I stopped watching what I was eating & I never worked out. That will get you nowhere, my friends.

I'm here to say that I am back on track! A few weeks ago I stumbled across a picture of myself in a bikini when I was 20. 
Talk about some crazy motivation.  I taped that picture on my bedroom mirror so I can see it everyday. So I can see that I CAN look like that. Okay, maybe not exactly like that...but close.

I didn't go back to Weight Watchers (see also: I'm cheap) but I am tracking everything on My Fitness Pal. I've been working out every day at home & I can't wait to be able to walk outside once it warms up. I am determined to make this the year of me. The year where I won't be pregnant (fingers crossed) & the year where I can finally feel good about myself.

I've lost 3.5lbs in about a week & a half. I've got 16.5lbs to go until I reach my first goal. I have until June 29th--my cousin Robyn's wedding--to meet that goal. SO, here's to being back on track AND feeling better!
