The goal for May was to lose 5lbs and I surpassed that with a lot of hours in the gym. Each week had at least a 1lb loss and most weeks it was more than that. I know that I won't be exclusively breastfeeding forever and once Izzie starts solids in three months, I'll lose a good amount of points plus per day from my daily target in addition to burning less calories from it per day. That means I have to take advantage of every moment I'm still breastfeeding as it speeds up the weight loss. I knew I could eat more and get away with it after Brady so I played around and didn't buckle down like I am now.
June will have five Saturdays and I want to average 1lb per week and have a total of 5lbs yet again. That would put me below my pre-pregnancy weight with Izzie, which was 168lbs. That would be a major accomplishment as she's just about to turn three months old and Brady was 16 months old when I got all of his pregnancy weight off.
The major goal is get back to my lowest by Christmas and to do that, I need to average 0.8lbs per week. It's very doable and I feel my clothes getting looser all the time. Just the other day I tried on a pair of size 12 bermuda shorts that I had tried on three weeks prior and couldn't get zipped up. Not only could I get them zipped up, but I had no muffin top. They were still a little snug so I need to lose some more before I start wearing them again, but I know that before summer is over they'll be on again and comfortable.
