I am officially 26 pounds below my pre-pregnancy weight. I actually had lost 28 pounds and reached a goal that I had set for myself, but I gained back a couple pounds over Christmas. So many people have asked me “What are you doing?” that I thought I would go ahead and blog about it.
Basically, I am just eating whole foods most of the time, keeping my less healthy indulgences in moderation, and exercising consistently. I have not done anything extreme. I have not put a whole lot of time into exercise--usually 15-30 minutes a day, with 1-2 rest days a week (when Greg is home, I sometimes do more). I have not spent a lot of money on fancy diet plans, memberships, or equipment (I use a $20 dumbbell set from Wal-Mart). And I have not taken any supplements. A little discipline, a lot of consistency, and a lot of patience is my “magic pill.”
(Well, and weight training. I think the thing that has brought the most noticeable results for me has been lifting weights!)
