Well it has been a little more than one week since I delivered my baby girl. I delivered her on Tuesday Feb 5th but I didn’t take my picture and get my stats for a couple days. I am sure you all understand with recovering from the delivery how this could happen.
I have decided to do weekly weigh ins on each and every Saturday until I reach my goal. Below you will my progress so far.

Here are the two pictures of my weight on the last 2 Saturdays.
For the first couple days I did not cut my calories. I was not able to do this because I needed food in my stomach to decrease the side effects of the pain killers. After a couple days I was able to drop my calories. My goal each day is to eat 100 calories per hour and no more than 300 calories per sitting. This would add up to about 1500-1600 calories. I have been eating balance bars, yogurt, string cheese, deli ham, apples, kashi granola bars, tuna sandwiches, graham crackers, jolly ranchers, diet mountain dew and gum. I really have stuck to these items because they are easy and I like them. The key is that I do not eat carbs by themselves. I always eat ham with my graham crackers, a string cheese with my granola bar, etc. I never eat carbs by themselves because it stimulates my appetite and is absorbed to quickly.
As for exercise, I have been on one 15 min walk and one 20 min walk. I didn’t want to overdo it right after having a baby. Trust me, more exercise is on the horizon.
Check back next week for more updates and pics!
