Last January Ken and I got really motivated to lose some weight. We both did well. Ken lost 20 pounds and I lost 25 pounds. However, somewhere around early June we ran out of steam. We both gained back a little over the next 6 months, but not too bad.
This January we thought we would give it another shot. I am having a difficult time getting motivated when I am hoping to get pregnant soon. But I thought I might as well work on it while I can. We just finished the first week of phase one of the South Beach Diet. We both lost 5 and a half pounds. Not too shabby, says I. I am now lower than my low of last year. In fact, I am at my lowest for the last about 4 years. Now I just have to keep it up. I know it will be a long process to get down to where I really want to be (Ken will be there in a few weeks -- ugh!) but I just need to keep heading in the right direction. That is the goal, for now.
Now I just need to find time to work out. Any tips from you busy moms on how to find the time?
