The weight loss plummet

Tuesday, April 08, 2014

So I am in a weight loss plummet and not exactly sure where I will land. 34lbs in the past 22 days. A healthy plummet as giving birth to twins is probably the only healthy way to drop that much weight in less than a month. And I am still dropping. So curious about where I will land. Still very much in a transition adjustment stage.

So my new challenges
A: Getting enough sleep
B: Not using nursing as an excuse to eat more. Yes I need 800-1000 extra calories but they need to be healthy calories.
C: Easing into fitness. Getting back to walking and other activities.
D: Drinking enough water.
E: Weening off the convenience foods. I have done a ton of fast and easy and not healthy and well balanced.

    Get to bed as early as you can! I know you have other kids to tend to as well but 8 hours of interrupted sleep is better than 5 hours of interrupted sleep. :)

I gained 65-70 lbs with my boys and lost 35 in the first month. I lost another 15-20 over the next couple of months...and then stopped. Eek! I also wasn't nursing which I know can help (and can sometime hinder) weight loss.

    Congrats on the twins! Great goals. Health calories for nursing was not a goal I had during my first baby that I should have. Thanks for giving me one to add to a future list!

    You have some pretty big challenges set up. And by the way, that first one -- you may have to wait another 18-20 yrs before that realistically happens. :-P

One More Week

Monday, March 10, 2014

Personally a huge accomplishment to make it to the one more week mark. 37 Weeks along with twins as of Yesterday. One more week and I am scheduled to deliver provided I don't go into labor this week. Full term twins seams like a huge deal when I see so many of my fellow moms of Multiples going really early.

March Goals ~ going to drop 20Lbs at least this month!

Saturday, March 01, 2014

OK I am so looking forward to dropping some weight this month. I have gained 43lbs since August. This gain was actually a goal for me to gain it. I have also gained 16 inches around my waist.
But March is the month. My surgery is scheduled for the 17th if I don't need it sooner. They are estimating that the boys are now 6lbs 11oz and 5lbs 11oz. 36 weeks (full term for twins) will be reached tomorrow so I am ready to meet my boys and then as things settle down start meeting my healthy lifestyle goals. So 12-15lbs of baby, two placentas and the water I have been retaining all gone by the end of the month. After a month to recover I am looking forward to starting back on my weight loss journey. Although I am more excited that our family will be complete.
16 More days.

Hello Third Trimester

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

Down to less then 10 weeks to go. My Boys are growing beautifully they are about 3 and 2.5lbs each as of last Thursday's Ultrasound. So a little bigger then expected and that too is a good thing as I would love for them to be around 7lbs 10 weeks from now.

So much to do to get ready for them still I feel that clock is ticking. I am trying to prepare as best I can for how to take care of two infants at once and still give my older children attention and get the rest needed to recover from the c-section.

I go in again tomorrow Another appointment a chance to hear their little heartbeats, know that everything is ok and ask all my questions.
