Getting fit

I just read that my ideal weight is 139. The range is 123-154. Whew! I have a way to go. I'm embarrassed that I got so overweight. It's exciting that I've lost 21 pounds since April. I want to be in my weight range before we have our next baby--I've decided that being a healthy weight when I start another pregnancy will help ward off pre-eclampsia. I don't know if that's true, but it can't hurt. It stinks that I have to rest my ankle. That's going to hinder weight loss.

What I don't understand is how professional athletes can rest for 2 weeks and be back at it, while I'm supposed to rest for 6.


  1. Congrats on 21 lbs! That is awesome. You'll get there!!

  2. WOW! 21 lbs is fantastic. How did you do it??? I need some help myself!

  3. Exercising 5 days a week. And watching what I eat. I'm a big snacker and eat when I get stressed out.
