Life changes and new motivation

Thursday, July 25, 2019

So I just updated my page to reflect this but I'll go ahead and add it to the blog. I haven't been active at weight loss, fitness, or spark people since late October and a lot has happened since then, besides the weight gain.
Since my last post this has all gone down:

~Found out I was pregnant
~Boyfriend and I went to some Seahawks games and I got to see how awesome his seats are(He's a season ticket holder)
~Boyfriend and I got engaged
~We got married on Christmas Eve
~I cut back to part time Uber and Lyft driving so I could spend more time with my husband and 5-year-old
~I quit doing Uber and Lyft entirely and my daughter and I started doing DoorDash as a way to spend time together and get out of the house more
~My weight his a new peak of 257 around the time I went into labor
~I had my second child on June 28th and named her after Hawkeye's daughter in Endgame (my husband, first child, and myself are huge Marvel fans)

Somewhere during the pregnancy when my husband was freaking out over my rapid weight gain and I tried to explain how quickly I lost it with my daughter from breastfeeding and upwards of two hours a day at the gym (I had a ton of energy). He asked how I gained it back and I told him it was going back to work and losing my excessive milk supply. Since I am now a stay-at-home mom it wouldn't be happening this time. Somehow, this discussion turned into a bet between my husband and I. If I can get down to my high school weight of 150 pounds within 13 months of giving birth, he has to take me on a vacation to Maldives. Since Lila was born on June 28th, I have until July 28th of next year to lose it. I'm almost at the 1-month mark and I've already lost the first 20 pounds so I have a good head start. I'm determined to win this.
