losing the post baby bump!

This mama has been workin' on her fitness, eating clean and trying to get rid of this leftover baby bump... because a baby bump after baby is no longer cute.

Especially when my baby is 10 months old {*sniff*} and the scale is still screaming at me that I have 10 more pounds to go!

ideally 15 more, but the goal is 10 by March 12th  - f i v e  weeks to go!

I never really talked about my weight loss & gain on this blog. Weight is such a tricky subject that comes with judgement and sharp comments

Pre pregnancy I was around 93lbs...before you gasp remember that I'm hardly 5ft tall
I gained a whopping 42 lbs with Sienna
and I'm currently 108

Since I stopped pumping I feel the weight coming back on fast, since I'm no longer burning those extra calories so I knew I had to make some new changes.

Thanks to Pintrest I found some great fitness articles as well as a few healthy recipes that have inspired me to make the necessary changes in my life to become a healthier me. I will admit I'm having a very tough time giving up sweets, my biggest weakness! I think the key is just not to have any in the house, because if its there....I'll eat it.

cant wait to make these




Super skinny is not the goal.

I want to be Healthier and feel good

and I will  :)

  1. Ah Joanna, this post was written just for me!!
    I weighed 119lbs at my wedding, 125lbs when I fell pregnant, I put on 48lbs during my pregnancy and I am now 134lbs.

    I set a goal to get back down to 125lbs by SJ's 1st birthday on 13 April but it is so hard!!!

  3. Oh man my daughter just turned 1 last month and with the stopping of pumping the weight has been coming back on also and makes me depressed :) I'd love to hear anything good you find. I started the 30 day shred this week hoping it helps. But sweets are also my weakness.

  4. I like that fitness plans! Switches things up! Maybe I'll have to join you on that! I've lost the baby weight from Tindra but not Jasper but I don't expect to be that size again since I was 20 when I got pregnant with him and I have some hips now but I'd still like to lose another 5-7. ANd now I'm scared to stop nursing- didn't even think about weight coming back!!

  9. Wow you're still tiny at 103!!!! I wish I was that tiny =) I used to be back in the day and I have no clue where all this extra weight came from. But even 10 lb over can make a huge difference! Good luck with your goal. At least you can say that having a baby is your reason and the best reason =) so glad to have just found your blog! Thanks for stopping by!
