Starting Weight: 6wk pp: 161# (at BFP weight)
Last Week’s Weight: 155.5#
Current Weight: 155.0#
Starting BMI: 24.5
Last Week’s BMI: 23.6
Current BMI: 23.6
1. Reiterate my goal and where I stand in reference to this goal:
I’m 5’8″ and have a goal weight of 142# (BMI of 21.6), so I have 13# to go (down 6# since starting) .
I’m currently wearing size 10-12 jeans, and I’d love to get to a solid eight. I look damn good as an 8!
155-157# is my plateau range, but I’m okay hanging in this area and working on toning for awhile so I don’t screw up my milk supply by cutting calories further. Once I’m cutting back on BFing, though, it’s on! If you’re looking for a good calorie counting website that accounts for exercise levels, etc., check out MyFitnessPal.com. In the meantime, I’m not bothering to change my #s above as long as I’m in the 155-157# range.
2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals:
Progress on last week’s activities:
*Eat a salad for at least 5 meals. – 4x
*Work out at least 3 times, including ab workouts EACH TIME. – epic fail. 2x. no abs. *sigh*
*Cut back on the alcohol consumption (this is hard, since BBQ season is starting up and we get together with friends pretty regularly and we’re all beer drinkers!). – hm, epic fail.
Activities & goals for this coming week: Same as last week!
On-going Life Style Goals:
Drink 8oz every time I sit down to nurse Stella or pump (drinking roughly 100oz water/day).

You inspired me to start as well. It's not as easy as they say even with breastfeeding. But am following your plan!
You're doing great! Enjoy the time with your parents.Sunshine
Hope you have a great time with your parents. I would love to be added to the list – I'm 10 weeks postpartum and 20lbs down.
we have to keep pushing on together, you are doing much better with you salad intake than I am, and I can't tell you the last time I worked out my abs…I need to make that a priority!
