Starting over after baby 5, journal
I am a 34 mom of 5 and my youngest just turned 2. I plan to lose 75 lbs over the next year. It may take a little longer than that, and I am comfortable with that. Slow and steady, right? I changed my eating habits recently and I already have so much more energy and am sleeping better. I would like to keep my carbs down between 65 and 75. I think that is my personal sweet spot. lately my carb levels have been about 115-85. Thats better than they used to be but I can do better. It funny because I am rarely hungry now that I am eating fewer carbs and more fat. I used to think about food all the time.
My current weight is 220 and my height is 5'3'', so I do have a long way to go.
I think if I break down my weight loss goals into 10 lb increments, It won't feel so overwhelming to achieve my goal. So maybe 7 lbs a month and almost 2 lbs a week? If it doesn't happen that fast, I'm ok with that. I think by March 7, I could weigh 213, So that is my first goal.
