working on that baby weight

I gained about 40 pounds this last pregnancy with Rebecca. The first 20 pounds came off really fast after she was born, but I still have about 20 to go. I do think I started out kind of low (107 lb.) so I’d be happy to be down to ~112…. that’s 15 pounds away. And those 15 pounds? Haven’t moved at all in the last two months. I’m stuck at ~127 lb. It’s time for a plan.

With two little ones (ages 2.5 years and 3 months) that are home

body after baby: one month postpartum

I gained 40 lb this pregnancy. I only gained 30 when I was pregnant with Ryan, but I also started 10 lb heavier with Ryan…. so basically I was the same weight at the end of pregnancy for each child = ~147 lb.

40 weeks

So far, I’ve lost about 15 lb, putting me at ~127-128lb. Right after Rebecca was born, I was at 140 and then I dropped 10 lb easily in the next week. A couple more pounds have come off since then, but I’ve been pretty steady at this

There are several new announcements from @Nutrisystem and I am lucky enough to be a part of it! No, I have not started the program yet, but pretty soon!

New Eating Habits with Christmas Cookies?!

**guest post from my mom who is reviewing the Nutrisystem program!**

I just wanted to post and say that I have not yet started my Nutrisystem Program. I have been so busy with holiday preparations and whatever else it is I do that I haven’t had much time to study the information and do the program justice. By that I also mean that I’m a little afraid of “failure” around the holiday season… maybe not a little, but A LOT afraid. I LOVE to bake Christmas

Thanks, Nutrisystem! Guest post by Emily’s Mom

**Welcome my mom to my blog! She’s reviewing Nutrisystem to help her meet her weight loss goals. Every week she’ll be guest posting on my blog with her progress and how she likes the program. I hope you follow her journey and show her some encouragement!**

I am so excited! I am lucky enough to try out the Nutrisystem program for 4 WHOLE MONTHS! Obviously Emily does not need to lose weight because she has always been slim and trim and, of course, now she is pregnant. So, yes… her

Tubby Tuesdays: I’m Melting

Ok, so I totally suck at writing these posts every week. Maybe it’s because I suck at working out. But I don’t feel so bad, because my partner in crime cupcakes, Mama B, sucks at writing her posts too 🙂

But really? I’m melting. People told me that if I made it breastfeeding past 6 months, the weight would start to come back off again. And it did! I don’t know if it’s the breastfeeding or not, but I’ll take it. I was stuck around 120 for awhile

tubby tuesdays: fail

I suck at Tubby Tuesdays. I haven’t posted one in… two weeks? I don’t have time. But also… I don’t really have anything to report. I’m only 3 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight so I don’t see myself dropping that anytime soon. I guess I SHOULD be updating on tubby tuesdays with my awesome workouts and healthy new recipes. But that would mean I actually need to be working out and cooking healthy meals.


Wait, popcorn for dinner is kinda healthy….. right?

I haven’t even been taking Ryan for walks.
