7 weeks in, 13 lbs down

I feel so lucky to have found this community and just wanted to post a quick before and during!

I finally had enough of feeling bad about myself and being inactive, so seven weeks ago I started the journey and haven't looked back. I was feeling really down about the way I looked since having my baby eight months ago and knew I had to do something, so I started working out five to six days a week and counting my calories. I've never approached weight loss in a healthy way before, so it's been new, frustrating, and exciting all at the same time.

I hope that everyone here chooses not to give up and quits making excuses. My biggest excuse was that I was too tired from my restless baby, but in fact, now I have more energy than I did before! Funny how that works out. :-) I'm not where I want or need to be and I know there is no huge difference, but it feels good to be closer than I was before! jttn3i8vnn4z.jpg

    April, I have been running a mile to warm up and then do a combination of weights (dumbells and barbell), machines, and crunches, reverse crunches, squats, lunges, and side leg lifts. I think they key for me has been breaking it up, but having a predictable amount of calories that I burn each day.
