Time to face the numbers. No boys allowed to read this post.

I gained exactly 35 pounds while pregnant with Reece.

On Monday I had lost 13 of those pounds.

As of today I've lost 13.5 of those pounds.

I have 21.5 pounds to go to reach pre-pregnancy weight.

I have 70.5 pounds to lose to reach my goal weight of 144, which would mark a 100 pound loss. {you can do the math}.

Starting out slow is different. It's nice! I have been faithfully logging my calories. {It's not too pretty.} But I'm being honest & doing it.
Monday I was shocked to see I had eaten 3,000+ calories! I took lots of "bites" that added up.
Yesterday I walked 1 mile. My butt was aching, I got a side ache, & I was winded. What the heck?! It's just a mile... which makes me glad I'm not doing the Country Music half marathon in April like I'd planned.
I'm not sure if it was the walk, or unpacking a lot but I've started bleeding again. I'm a little concerned.
I'm ok right now with taking it slow, or more like a normal pace. I don't want to over do it.
I would like to reach my goal weight by this summer, but it's not likely, & it's ok.
It'll happen, no rush.

Love, The Curvy Housewife

Since I'm forever trying to lose the last 15 pounds I've gained over the past 5 years, I'll give you a tip on what's working for me. No fad diet, no calorie counting, no weighing myself, no focusing on things I can't eat. Just focus on healthy food, fresh food, yummy clean food and get in a good sweat every day if possible (except for Sunday). Good luck, you'll do it. :)
