I always thought gaining just the recommended weight during my pregnancy for twins would make it easy for it to just melt off after they came out. Boy was I wrong. I am still fighting this pesky 16lbs that is being stubborn. Then lets add the 20 pounds I gained from 3 rounds of IVF and all of the drugs. So yeah...I have a lot to lose. But DH and I have been on a kick. We are both logging our calories and activity on My Fitness Pal and are actually seeing some results. We used to try fad diets together all of the time, but after running into an old college friend who had lost a ton of weight she revealed that her and her husband just really tried hard to eat well and hit the gym everyday.
So far I've lost 3lbs since starting my fitness pal, but I feel like it is actually weight that is "real" weight....not water weight like you lose in so many diets.
I am finally ready to get rid of this weight and not feel like a total "mom" anymore! Feel free to follow me if you are on My Fitness Pal too. My user name is Emilymorrisfoster
