Well, I have had a very eventful few months! We have a new addition to our little family! Miss Jovie Noel arrived on 12/12/11 and we are so so very in love with her! She is about 7 weeks old now, and I am feeling like my C-section is healing well, so I feel ready to get back to my healthy self!!
I had a pretty rough and miserable pregnancy, hence the lack of postings. I was in pain most of the last 2 months and really struggled with my cravings and my eating habits the entire 9 months. I was never overly hungry with my first pregnancy, but this time, I felt starving all the time. I really lost control, and in the end, I gained 30 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight, and I am up 45 pounds from my thinnest weight back in December of last year. I have decided to use Medifast again, but this time I am doing a hybrid program. 3 medifast meals per day, and 3 healthy eating meals per day. I am using Myfitnesspal.com and the my fitness pal app on my phone to track what I eat. The phone app has a new barcode scanner that is AMAZING. I am feeling so ready to be healthy and fit again!
There is so much I want to journal about, but I will do that more as the days and weeks go by. For now, I am going to leave you with an amazing recipe! I hope you enjoy it! Share this blog with anyone who you feel needs a lift, some inspiration, or just a place to read about another human being going through her own weight loss battle. I appreciate comments, suggestions, criticism, whatever! I want this to be a safe place for people to feel like they aren't alone!
I am so glad to be back!! Here we go!
