    How’s everyone doing?! I was going to create a post to ask for tips about my belly, but I saw this one and decided to check in.

    I hit a long plateau for a while, but I did keto for a while and it really helped. Quarantine started out rough but I think I got a handle on it. Got the peloton app and I have a cheap bike, but having a variety of teachers and music and lengths has super helped with my confidence/mindfulness.

    I also stopped drinking. I’ll be 7 weeks sober on Sunday, and that’s def been helpful.

    I’m happy with a lot of changes. My face is thinning out, my hourglass is back (though I think my hip bones aren’t as complimenting to that as they were before birth), and just overall not disgusted with myself. My ladies have also lost their charm and I’m back to queen of the itty bitty committee. Not ready to wear my old clothes because of this belly fat I can’t shake! I’d totally be happy with where I am now if not for this slab of fab on my thighs and belly. I feel close to beach ready but not there yet.

    Weight 132.something
    Waist 27.5 (I know it’s in my goal range but I kind of want the 26 back now)

    I have lost just over 1 stone now and am 133 lbs. I would like to be 124 at most. Also struggling to shift the flabby belly and still feel really wobbly but I'm afraid to do too much physically as still in recovery from vitamin D deficiency/osteomalacia and really don't want to hurt myself!

    woooooooooooooooweeeee I thought I'd just stop back in here and see what's up, It's been well over a year since I posted....whoops.

    After some fluctuation of weight I am currently 161.8 as of this morning. Looks like my highest was 185 post baby so hey not too shabby. The weight loss journey continues though! I am excited to see the 150's again (it's been some time, old friend) but would REALLY like to see the 140's!

    Right now I've just had a major overhaul of my diet. I have cut out sugar...kind of. Well let's say I don't eat as much as I used to. I rarely eat candy now. But I will not, I repeat will NOT give up sugar in my coffee!!! Although at one point I was able to do that so long as coffee was cold, so maybe I'll give that a try again. Other sugar I can't stay away from are the natural sugars in dried fruit. Dried peaches are my weakness. But it beats a pack of gummy bears, right?

    How is it coming for the rest of you?

    just reporting that I hit 158.8 the day before yesterday! Back to 159.6 (I think the scale said) this morning but hey, 150's! yay!!! now to continue the downward trend. Really gotta start incorporating some workouts into my routine but it's so hard. I keep myself too busy, I think....gotta make time.

    Woot 150’s! Honestly even if your workout is just 5, 10, 20m it’s still better than nothing. Maybe try think about it as part of your teeth brushing routine? Hit a quick 5x5x5 then brush your teeth. We used to do them as part of our krav warm ups. It was like 5 exercises with 5 in each set repeated for 5 minutes. We’d do 5 burpees, 5 mountain climbers, 5 crunches, 5 jumping jacks, and 5 push ups. I forget the order tbh. But something like that. Although I feel you even squeezing in 5m with kids is like haha ok sure eye roll.

    I’ll update when I’m not on my period lol yay

    Ok I said I’d wait until AF was gone but I got this message today on mfp :). DASH diet for my heart + walking every day is really working wonders on the scale/my overall mood

    I’m really excited not that I’m fully off of AF and have a more accurate weight. I didn’t think I’d ever get here and to be 5-10 lbs away from my pre-ex weight. I’m actually starting to think about how I can add more calories back into my meal plan or how to shift my meal plan to maintenance once I hit 115. I’d love it if I could get there before spring break (first week of April).
