Over the summer I was able to really commit myself to losing the remaining baby weight. For me baby weight also included the weight that I had gained (slowly) over the course of four years of infertility treatments. One of the "best" parts of infertility treatments that no one tells you about is that pumping your body full of hormones on a monthly basis often causes (some) weight gain.
So after IUI's and IVF, a twin pregnancy, a tough couple of years and a lack of motivation to lose any weight I got motivated. It stemmed from a "scare" about my blood pressure (which turned out to be nothing) but it was enough to get me moving. I almost completely gave up carbs and sugar. I did awesome. I shed 20 pounds in a few short months and I felt amazing. And then I broke my finger. I know a broken finger shouldn't be enough to throw me off the wagon but the finger, the tumor, the doctors, the upheaval... it was all enough together to make me lose focus.
So I struggled for the past couple of months and have added a few of those pounds back. I made up my mind that I could wait out the surgery, Christmas and New Years but that was IT! SO now I am getting back in the game. No more carbs, no more sugar. And I didn't remember it being this difficult. :D
I would say I have another 20 or 30 pounds (including those pounds I gained back) to get where I need to be. I don't know how realistic that is but everyone has to have a goal.
