Feeling a little inadequate to write todays blogpost all about weight loss as I sit here & can still feel some loose skin and rolls creeping over my pants.
But I have come a long way. 6 weeks ago I was 28 lbs heavier as I was pregnant with my sweet baby boy. I feel grateful as I only have a handful of lbs to lose. Which I tell my husband I might purposely hold onto for as long as possible because once the lbs are gone then what? I’m just skinny Shannon forever – knock on wood –
Losing a dramatic amount of weight might be the best feeling in the world. Throw a yummy newborn in my arms and I feel like Wonder Women, & I can do anything, hence hightailing to Vegas with a 2 week old.
So how do I lose the weight?
It’s a combo of things
I get water and calories out of me 5 ounces at a time every 2-3 hrs. I believe in breastfeeding with all my heart for the health benefits of both mom & baby. But please don’t feel ashamed if you chose not to. It is so hard and some babies don’t take to it. And that’s why formula was invented. No shame in using it.
Drink For Fuel
One of the best parts of having a baby is the hospital water bottle. I drink at least 8 of these a day for the first 6 weeks. It actually feels me up and makes me feel less hungry. So instead of eating when our body sends the hunger pain signal drink some water first and then eat. Its really helped me.
As I now start to work out I will post more about health and fitness along with my personal goals and how I plan to achieve them.
I hope you find this post helpful and it answered some of your questions. Have a great weekend friends!
