It Feels Good to Walk Again!

I finally had my baby after being induced a week late on November 26th. She weighed in at a hefty 9 lbs and 8oz! So I immediately lost a good 20 lbs--about half of my pregnancy weight gain. So now it's time to get into gear! I have to admit that I've never actually tried to lose weight before, and my plan isn't to go at it full force (as in dieting) because I'm breastfeeding and losing weight too quickly can interfere with that. But what I am going to do right away is start working out (at a pace that works for my body)! So I went walking today, and I felt like a whole new person. I hadn't been able to walk that fast in so long! I guess this post is just meant to be encouraging and of course make me accountable to exercising regularly again now that I can. You often don't realize what you have until it's gone, so move your body while you can today!

Congrats on the baby!!! Do we get to see pictures? :) You've made me realize, again, how much I take for granted. I don't have any kids yet, and I need to get up and start walking/running and working out more! I have more time now than I probably will once I have kids. We always say "tomorrow" but I need to do it now! Except...it's late. And for now I'll just do it tomorrow. :)

Yes congrats on the baby, that is so exciting!

Great job on walking! I need to follow your good example! (One thing at a time though, eating well and the working out will come!)
