Operation Post Baby Booty

29 comments

 

Many of you followed along to watch me grow! Now I want you to watch me shrink!

I’ve been working hard, but staying some-what relaxed as I try to get back into shape after having my beautiful little girl. It took 10 months to grow like this and beyond. It will probably take about a year or longer to feel myself again. I will say that I do feel great at this point and am completely happy with my progress. It was rough when things were at a standstill after the initial weight loss in the very beginning, but this past month I have seen great changes!

Currently I am at a healthy weight for my height and at this point my goal is to just get stronger, tone and build a little more  muscle!

Here I am at the end of my pregnancy:

Here is my progress so far!

{once I have more of a tan I will update my recent progress since the 8month pics ;-) }

Pregnancy Weight Loss

Total Weight Gained: 44 pounds

[pre-pregnancy BMI was 18.5]

Total Weight Loss to-date: 42

Inches lost: 16  1/4

[current BMI: 20]

I have not done my body fat measurements; although I wish I had from the beginning. I am not a fan of using BMI but wanted to give you and example. I know what my percentage was pre pregnancy so when I get my post pregnancy measurements I can give you an idea of my progress as far as that goes!

Laury you look amazing!!!! Personally, you look so fab I really don’t think you need to lose more – you look great where you are now and you should be so proud of yourself. It’s great to see that with patience and simply going back to your regular eats and exercises that it is possible to get your body back. I sometimes fear that I won’t be able to but you show that it can happen and it inspires me so much…I know I’ll be coming to you for advice when it’s my turn! ;)

You are doing great, and really, what’s the rush? I have to say, I read your blog irregularly (sorry, it’s a busy life) and it seems like only yesterday that you had your baby! She is SIX MONTHS OLD already??? Wow. Just blink a few times and she will be dating boys.. :D

You look fantastic! Did you noticed that you started losing weight when you introduced Ella to solids?

Thanks, Brianne!

YES! You guys told me that would happen! I “introduced” food at 4/12 months then stopped after feeding her a few times, i decided to wait. Now that she’s 6 months and has been eating foods for a couple of weeks now I have noticed a significant change already!

Did you have to lower your daily calories at all to lose weight once you introduced solids? There is so much different information out their about how many calories one should eat, it is so confusing! How many worked for you?

I’m actually planning on posting about just this very very soon! I can’t give you a solid answer summed up but once I started keeping track of my protein, carbs and fat…making sure I was getting enough actually, it fell off. So more I guess? But I plan to lay it all out on the blog!

Yes, everyone is different though!!!

You look amazing!! I’m 21 weeks pregnant now and you are an incredible inspiration (I almost said “huge inspiration”, but that seemed like the wrong word choice lol) for having a healthy pregnancy and getting the booty back in shape post-baby. Congrats on your progress girl!
