Weight Loss Update: Reaching Goals and Setting New Ones

21 weeks postpartum (excuse my face haha)

19 weeks postpartum

16 weeks postpartum

 I never realized how much my body is actually changing until I look back at pictures. Although my "abs" were showing more at 19 weeks than 21 weeks (probably due to all the Christmas cookies!), my waist definitely shrunk. I kept the holiday weight off and even got down to 139 twice but I've been sitting at 140-141 for about two weeks which I am totally ok with since I expected to gain weight over the holiday.

I was a runner pre-pregnancy and through most of my pregnancy but now I've been leaning towards heavier weight lifting than ever before. It makes me feel strong and I've seen a quicker change in my body too. I've started following other moms on Instagram that are now weight lifters and their bodies are amazing. I definitely don't want to be a body builder or do bikini competitions but I would love to be leaner and have more definition. The one thing I don't want is bulky legs - as a dancer from 3-18years old I do love strong but lean legs.

My new goal is to lift more but continue running and be in the best shape of my life. I want to document my transformation more and will probably do it on Instagram more than my blog so follow me there!

On another note, all of my pre-pregnancy jeans fit so I'm feeling way more normal again now that I'm back into my size 2's. Although I'm still 5-10lbs from my average pre-pregnancy weight I know my body has bounced back because my jeans fit and I don't look like a sausage in them haha
