I have my first ever child to be born in late august and I'm nervous! Unsure how pregnancy would sit with me, I quit my jobs 3 months in (for other reasons, too). I've been measuring, I didn't do anything at first.... March 2014 was the last time I ever measured, and so I did this in march 2015 early, and found I gained 15 inches from that time.... By the 4th of May I'd already upped that number to 27.5 inches.

Ladies and gents, I'm already obese..I was already warned I could not afford weight gain and I've been on and off the weight loss train since 2012. I stopped in march 2014 and I remade my account to start fresh in my trackers and everything, but I kept the original lowest measurements...

Anyway, VERY proud to say I measured yesterday, the start of week 4 of my exercises, and went from 27.5 inches above my lowest ever recorded measurements to being back to only being 17 inches over ^-^ That made me so happy! 10.5 inches lost and it's not even the end of the month!
At the start, I had 77 inches to drop (with pregnancy measurements!), but I'm guessing it's more like 40-50 inches in reality... My hope is to keep up what I'm doing, to drop 10-15 inches every MONTH. I won't be able to drop all of that, but maybe drop 20-30 inches before my boy's born :)

It's hard to keep motivated. The only reason I got this reality call is I have a SON on the way. He's going to be active and if I don't drop my weight, I'm going to have difficulties keeping up with him... I'm not looking for the perfect body, but at least dropping 2/3 of my weight would be lovely, ensuring I'll be able to keep up with him. Plus, looking drop dead sexy in my plain undies would be a plus LOL

Anyway, that's my thing! I have done a lot of research, I've got 64 minutes of exercises in an app (I made the workouts so they won't hurt baby) that break down into 8-20 minute exercises, I walk 0.7miles in 16min45sec and trying to do this once or twice each day, too. The goal is 40-60 minutes a day of exercise, but in a way my body can still handle it =]

______________________

I really have about 130lbs to lose but the goal is to focus on inches as I'll see more with that than in weight while pregnant.... SO, by the end of June I want to have dropped 27-30 inches since May 5th, and drop another 15-25 inches before mid august - or at least before my due date. Question it - will I be able to keep up with my minutes as I get farther though.

Officially 27 weeks prego today. I have 2.5 - 3 months left until he's born, so I have a lot to go! Hoping for 200-220lbs of actual weight before he's born, but majorly that I'm 180 before December... So yea, Hoping!
