It’s hard to believe that in 19 days my little man is going to be 6 months old! He started as this tiny little baby…

And has turned into this little boy!


After the initial weight loss of giving birth, I hadn’t lost much more. It took a while for me to fit back into my pre-pregnancy clothes, but around the 4 month mark things started changing. I began losing a little more weight and shrinking. I was much more excited about the shrinking part. I have this whole wardrobe of clothes I haven’t touched in quite some time, so wearing them again has been fun.

As far as the numbers go I’m 15 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight (still a pretty consistent 3 pound/month weight loss), but really I hope to only lose 5-10 more pounds, which is really nothing in the grand scheme of things. Since I’m so close to where I want to be I won’t really be doing much different than I do now. Between teaching (which is to majority of my exercise) and nursing I burn lots of calories.

Throughout the day I feel like I’m always eating to keep my energy up, and until recently I’ve been eating really well. I feel like the past couple weeks haven’t been my best. Buying a huge bag of Costco trail mix maybe wasn’t the best idea. I’m grabbing handful after handful a few too many times. I need more vegetables in my life again. That’s my biggest goal for the month – more veggies! Eat better! Easy as that, right???

Okay, picture time.  Here’s my picture from 3 months…

And now from 5 months…


Another view from 3 months…

And more recent 5 months again…


It’s not very visible in the pictures, but my abs are beginning to get more defined again.  They also feel much much stronger.  6 pack after baby?  Now that’s a goal I’d like to achieve.

That’s all for now.  I hope you enjoy your Friday and weekend!

  1. ah! You are looking great 🙂 That little line takes FOREVER to go away, doesn’t it? I thought it’d like magically disappear. You’re doing fantastic. Trail mix is totally my downfall. I can’t keep it in the house!

  2. You look awesome! Ever since that glitch with your blog a week or two ago, I am not getting your blog posts via email. Off to check on fixing that now!

    1. Ya know, I just realized I’m not either! I was getting them just to make sure they came through ok. Something new to look into, haha. Thanks for letting me know!

  3. Yes let me know what they say because I tried to re-enter my info on the email subscription and it won’t let me because I am already registered. I definitely want to get notification of your new blog posts!
