Post Baby Weight Loss

post baby weight loss

Monday, 3 April 2017, I will be commencing my post baby weight loss journey once again. I want to blog, document and share my journey. Usually, this would be something I share via my YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/ouririshfamily) but I’ve decided to switch things up and use my blog. I hope you can all follow along, any and all encouragement will be appreciated.

For the past number of years, I have been stuck in a vicious cycle of “dieting” and losing weight but putting that weight back on plus more. I have been the same weight (+/- 1-7lbs) for approximately 4 years now.

In March 2016 I gave birth to our daughter and since then I have returned to my pre-pregnancy weight. However, this past Christmas I have seen the weight pile on, I have been emotionally eating and generally feeling very low about myself.

We are also going on vacation in 6 weeks, so no time like the present to try and shred some pounds.

Let’s get to the juicy bits, I took it upon myself to do my body measurements and weigh myself this morning.

Measurements

Left Thigh – 26.5 inches

Right Thigh – 25.75 inches

Hips – 46.5 inches

Tummy – 40.5 inches

Bust – 42 inches

Left Arm – 13 inches

Right Arm – 13 inches

Weight

My weight this morning was:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I will be using Slimming World as my main dieting method. I also plan to walk 5 or more times per week and complete exercise routines that focus on my thighs and belly.

I will have a new blog post every week to update you all on my weight but also to share my highs and lows during the week. I will not be taking my body measurements again until mid-May.

I am setting myself a weight loss goal which I hope to hit before our vacation in 6 weeks. The goal is to lose 10 pounds in that time frame.

Wish me luck.

  1. 10 lbs in 6 weeks is a great goal. I am still working on getting off my post baby weight as well. Baby is now 1 year, 2 months…I’m about 15lbs from my goal. It’s tough but commitment will get us there :)! I love how you took all your measurements and not just your weight. Good luck to you!
