Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

Today's The Day!

There is a hope
Inside of me
Inside it begs
To be set free
Today's the day
I give it wings
Today we'll fly
With the power it brings
The strength is there
If you'd just see
Open up your eyes
And watch it with me
Today's the day
To say good by
To choices that made
You afraid to fly
Today's the day
To say hello
to choices that kindle
Your inner glow.

Does anyone recognize the dress I'm wearing?
If you look at my profile picture, you'll see that that was the dress I was wearing for my "before" picture, before I lost all my weight the first time.
Now here I am again. Starting all over square one.
I have about the same amount of weight to lose too. I'm definitely not happy with feeling the way I feel at this weight. But the good news is month...that dress will no longer fit me. I need to remember how I feel at this weight, how I hate it, how I can't stand myself so that when the going gets tough...I don't give up.
So, of course, I will be attempting to lose 20 pound in ten weeks. Actually I'd really like to lose that 20 pounds in the first nine weeks. I'm doing something different this time around that I did not do the last time which was...I am eating clean. That means I'm cutting out all sugar, white flour and processed foods. I'm curious to see how quickly fat will fall off that way.
I am also giving myself a few more calories to make sure I make enough breast milk. Today, I started out the day with 1,855 clean calories. The last time I did this, I averaged around 1,400 calories a day.
If at any time during this process, I feel like I am not making enough breast milk, I'll up my calories. I may also take a supplement called Fenu-Greek to increase my milk production. I've taken this before and it really works.
So, today, I got in a 2 1/2 mile run, a 60 minute leg work-out, ab exercises and four sets of 15 girl style push-ups. I plan on working out a full five days this week.
I hope you all are having a great start to the new year!

You workout sounds like it was well rounded and I'm glad to hear your running is up to 2 1/2 miles. I am loving running right now. The feeling you get when you are done is just wonderful. Greg and I have 45 days till... our honeymoon! I have been working very hard so this winter body of mine is ready for some fun in the sun!

    Good luck over these next few weeks. We all know you can do it. One day at a time, right?
