Running Testimonial: Sample Menu

by Cyndi on January 26, 2013

Sample menu for my post baby weight loss

counting calories

The day where my baby girl arrives is getting closer and closer. Additionally, so is the cutoff of free foods and resting on the couch. As of my last doctor’s appointment, I am at 187 lbs. I am due on February 4th and I am scheduled to induce on February 5th. By that time I will be very surprised if I am not over the 190 lb mark. My pre-pregnancy weight was 136 lbs. This means that if I lose 10 lbs at delivery (the weight of baby and extra goodies) I will have 44 extra lbs to lose.

 

Below is a sample menu of what I plan to be following.

 

I will be breastfeeding. Therefore, I will not be doing a dramatically low diet or taking any supplements whatsoever. I will be altering my plan based on results as I go. In the beginning I will not have to be as strict as when I approach my target. The more you lose the harder it gets.

(Also, who knows how much sleep I will actually be getting? LOL)
