Ok, so I went to the dr yesterday.....and did the dreaded weigh in......and only gained 1 pound in the last 4 weeks!!!! Yay! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley10.gifhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley17.gifhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley10.gifhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley17.gif

What's really cool about all of this is that I've been totally piggin out on ice cream and french fries! I'm craving the fries pretty much every day. I expected to be like 5-6lbs heavier, but nope! Only 1!!!!!

So that's a grand total of 7 lbs so far, and I'm almost 1/2 way there! Yay!

http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley20.gifThat's great! I have to go for the dreaded weigh in on Monday and like you, I've been a super pig the past few weeks. I can only dream of a 1 pound gain!

Good job!

Actually it's pretty simple. It took me a while to figure it out but basically you keep a food diary and track the calories in everything you eat. I'm going to be breastfeeding so I'll be keeping mine around 1800 and drinking mothers milk tea to keep my supply up. You can basically eat whatever, just keep it around 1800 a day. If you're doing formula you can do 1500 and lose fast but you never want to go below 1500 a day because you'll lose lean muscle.

Then you just workout 6 days a week. I love Turbo Jam, but if you're crunched for time you should check out Beach Body's new "10 Minute Trainer." Great workouts but in 10 minute segments to fit throughout your dayhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif

I lost 40lbs in just under 5 months prior to getting pregnant following this plan and didn't really figure it out until the last 3 so I know between that, having more knowledge about eating right, and breastfeeding, I know I'll be in better shape than before I got pregnant this time around.

Hope this helps even though I still hate you!http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif
