Well, six weeks postpartum, having really been attuned to my health during pregnancy since I had the dreaded gestational diabetes, I am 17.4 lbs down from where I was when I joined last year. What an awesome boost to keep going! I haven't been this low a weight since right before I was pregnant with J more than 4 years ago.
My healthy inspiration/motivation
The scare with diabetes has really kicked my motivational butt. I don't want to deal with the health issues my dad had during his last years because he had not managed his type II well. I don't want my kids to worry about me. I want to be active and healthy like I used to be. My ulcerative colitis is under control, so I really have no more excuses not to focus on really being HEALTHY.
A note about WW--they kept all my info and recipes on file, so it has been really easy to just pick right up where I left off. And they are currently doing a "be happy" promotion focused on bringing positive emotions to your weight loss journey. I am really glad I chose this program for support. It is exactly what I need right now.
