It has been more than a year since I gave birth to my second daughter. A lot of things happened since. I was back to my weight before I started this blog, maybe even gaining a few pounds more. Yet, I couldn't be happier -- I am now a mother to two very beautiful daughters.
I have been exclusively breatfeeding my daughter for a little over a year now and without breastfeeding I could have gained more weight. But now that my milk supply is slowly depleting, I am gaining weight faster and I feel a lot heavier than 6 months ago.
I tried going back to the gym last January. I wanted to lose 15 pounds before the first birthday of my daughter. But a lot of things happened that did not allow me to focus on my goals. I attended 1 class in January and failed to return since.
My daughter turned one last April and that was my signal. Now I know that I should really commit to my fitness goals. I have a few more months before Christmas and I want to go back to my pre-pregnancy weight before the year ends. That means I have to lose 34 pounds from June to December. I'll be working on my stats next week and probably sign up for a nutritional program soon. I'll be doing this for myself and my family this time.
