55 Pounds, 8 inches DOWN!!

When I got pregnant, I was not in the best of shape. (I still am not) I weighed in at 145 pounds. I gained a total of 50 pounds when pregnant. I know, terrible. But hey, I was HUNGRY. Before having my girl I weighed in at 195lbs. Leaving the hospital I weighed 185lbs. ONLY 10 pounds lighter. I was devastated. Nova was small when she was born so I should have expected it. But anyways, now I am weighing in at 130 pounds which is a total of 65 pounds lost, 55 of which was during the 15 day mommy fit challenge that I completed. First of all, I LOVE this challenge. There is a facebook page called 15 day mommy fit challenge that I highly recommend joining, it provides so much support and people to be happy for you when those pounds start sheading off. At the bottom of this post is a link to the videos on YouTube that I used for this challenge. Best part is its completely free.

People keep asking me shocked, 55 POUNDS?? And yes, that’s 100% true. But there is more to the story. First off, I was only 6 weeks post-partum, quick weight loss is common after having a baby (water weight, blood volume lowers, etc) I am also breastfeeding, I followed my OWN meal plan, and I included the warm up and cool down videos during ALL of the workouts.

Here is my meal plan, I hope it can help some mommies out there feel more comfortable in their own skin!

Remember: NO CAFFINE, and NO ALCOHOL. They are bad for your baby, and have tons of calories. I would get hungry at random times and would eat fruit in between meals, no limit. I would have grapes, strawberries, honeydew, blueberries, and watermelon. Always eat and drink water when you are hungry. Listen to your body. Start every meal with a full glass of water. Water increases your milk production and helps you from over eating. KEY TO THESE MEALS: Follow suggested serving sizes, I have a food scale which helped a lot. These meals are EASY and I am not the world’s best cook so they were quick, which is awesome when you have a baby.
