Buddies wanted! Please!!! Let's be down 50lbs by Spring 2015


Hi, I am starting tomorrow!!! It'll be Monday Oct 20

My 5th child is 6.5 months & EBF. She recently started eating solid foods, but she's still nursing around 4 times a day (and during the night). I haven't lost a pound since coming home from the hospital after having her! Breastfeeding makes my body cling to every oz of fat & increases my appetite like crazy. Hopefully, as she nurses less and eats more food, that will change.

I'm really hoping for some buddies - to keep each other accountable & to share tips, encourage, and motivate!!! I plan to get on here every day, or at least every few days, for updates.

My long term goal is to lose 50 pounds.

Short term goals - down 15 lbs by Thanksgiving (in a month) and another 10 lbs by Christmas. I REFUSE to gain over the holidays!!! I WILL have some self control lol
I made "easy" goals so there's some wiggle room for a couple deserts and stuff I mean, we still need to enjoy the festivities, right?

So, timeline
-15 by Nov. 27
-25 by Dec. 25
-35 by Jan. 31
-40 by Feb 27
-50 by March 27 (my baby's first birthday!)

Just in time for Spring!!!

Any weightloss buddies want to join me?

Hi! While I don't have 50 lbs to lose, I do have at least 20-30 I could ultimately take off. EBF for me always resulted in weight loss. With my little guy, I gained weight after I stopped (he was 15 months old) and he is now 3. The weight just "crept" up on me. oops. I was pregnant with our 4th but sadly lost our baby at 10 weeks on June 30. We were going to ttc again, but now I think we have put that on hold. So right now, I will join you on your journey!

I will have to come up with a timeline for myself!

Are you working out at all??

Hi! Glad you joined in!!
I'm so sorry for your loss...that's so sad. When are you planning on ttc again?

Yes, I am going to workout. I ran (and walked) a mile this morning. It was so hard lol...I used to run 6 miles in 60 minutes...back when I was fit and only had 2 kids. I plan on doing that every morning and working my way back up to several miles.

Do you workout?

I've done pretty good today. I think I cut too much out all at once (carbs) and got a massive migraine, so I just had a huge bowl of Special K. I don't want to release toxins into my milk, so I need to be careful, but I am planning on drastically reducing carbs and sugars. I made some spicy Cajun chicken in my crockpot & red beans (the kids & hubby will also have rice). I think I'll also have to throw on some peas for the baby, she loves them

I would love to join you!! I Actually only need to loose 30, but they WONT leave!! I gained 40lbs with my son and lost 20 in the hospital. I have a mini goal of 10 by Nov. 22nd, which is the day I'll be in a wedding...In a sleeveless dress...that's way too tight in the hips....

So. Goal is now more towards slimming my hips and arms. Nobody will see my post baby belly anyway

Thank you wish. We got the all clear to ttc again as soon as first cycle. But each month came and I kept saying not ready. Either physically or emotionally. So we are now waiting until...no set month really. I guess just go along each month and see.

I was very active and used to do pilates and ran on an elliptical back in my 20s and early 30s. But after I hit 35, it was down hill

So now I am getting back into exercise. I started a 30 day plank challenge yesterday and will start back into Pilates again. I also looked into the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. We will see on that.

Oh the cajun chicken sounds yummy!!! We would eat that up in our house.

I have celiac so I don't eat bread and pasta (occasionally I have gluten free pasta), so I eat a lot of fruits and veggies. Every day for breakfast I eat greek yogurt (different flavor each day) with gf granola and mini dark chocolate chips. And I have my coffee with flavored creamer.

For lunch it varies. Sometimes its leftovers, other times it may be yogurt again, or a big salad or nutella with banan slices. My problem isn't "diet" as much as it is working out...and my bowl of ice cream each nite!

Welcome DaTucker!!! 10 lbs by Nov 22 works for me too. And yes I could use some toning in my arms for sure! (its not swimsuit season yet so let's focus on other body parts til then!)

I was also a runner once upon a time Did a 5 minute mile, 11 minute 2 mile, and a 19 minute 3 mile. Now it takes me 10 minutes and lots of gasping for air to run a single mile lol.

Omg the plank challenge looks crazy hard! I started Jillian Mochaels Body Revolution today, it kicked my butt!

I eat a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast along with a banana or an apple. I also make sure to drink a whole bottle of water during breakfast! Which is a lot for me, I rarely feel thirsty so I have trouble drinking enough.

Lunch is usually a grilled chicken sandwich. And dinner is the most difficult bc Dh gets off work late and I'm usually too tired to cook

Can I join?

I need to lose more than 50 lbs but I gotta start somewhere. I gained 24 lbs with my son and dropped a few after I had him but staying in the same area for the last few months. I want to get rid of some before his birthday in Dec. we are also planning on trying for #2 then but I need to get back on track with my diabetes and high blood pressure
I lost 30 lbs before I got pregnant with my son, I did a shake program which I honestly can't realistically stick to but do need to get rid of some that I had left but I also lost with a very strict no carb diet which I so want to do again. I used to bike about 30 miles a day and do tae bo or other exercises at home it's getting to cold to go biking now especially since I have my son with me all day

That would also be great bonding time for the two of you!! I bet it will be a lot of fun!

I hope all you ladies are doing good with your weight loss! I lost 0.8lbs the first week, which is a bad start to my 10lb goal. It was my own fault as I only did Body Revolution twice. I restarted it today and am determined to keep it up. I mean... I want to lose a FULL pound this week lol!
