Day 1

So today it begins--my quest to finally lose the last 4 pounds of baby weight. I have a lot more to lose after that but one thing at a time! I gained 52 pounds during my pregnancy, which for twins is not too bad. 43 of them fell off the first two weeks after giving birth, but then the last 9 wouldn't budge! I even gained 3 back. Toward the end of summer I finally got my act together and started losing again, losing the 3 I had gained back plus another 5 or so by Thanksgiving. Then I started baking (and eating) lots of Christmas cookies, but miraculously I only gained maybe a pound or so which I have since lost. So I have 4 pounds to go and I'm hoping to lose them by the twins' 11-month birthday on the 28th. I will be doing the 30-Day Shred DVD 5 days a week for 6 weeks and then decide what to do after that, probably a combination of that and another, more cardio-based DVD.

In addition to the DVD workouts, I will keep a food journal (not here) and try to stay within 1400-1500 calories per day. I hope that tracking my progress in this blog will keep me motivated.
