I've been slowly transitioning into eating healthy foods. I hate to admit it, but my weight loss journey has been quite a struggle. After I had my baby I lost a good 15lbs. I thought losing the baby weight would be easy peasy. Little did I know - losing the baby weight would challenge me to new levels of dedication.
After a good three months of recovery ( I had an emergency c-section that saved my daughters life). I'll have to share her miracle birth story another day. During this three month time period I lost another ten pounds, while breastfeeding. The sad news was that I after I stopped nursing around four months my body went into shutdown mode and gained the ten pounds right back - boo!! Next baby I will dedicate myself to trying to nurse longer.
Who knew losing weight the correct way could pose such a challenge? My goal has been to lose 25 lbs. Sounds easy? Not so... I've worked on replacing chips, candy and other processed foods with green and other healthy choices. Even though sometimes I get really tempted to eat brownies, cakes and cookies, I somehow manage to strive forward. I still eat chocolate here and there (I'm an addict - I know it's bad). Replacing milk chocolate with dark chocolate has helped me stay in control of sweet cravings. Dark chocolate is quite bitter and I usually will eat one small piece for dessert:) Dove chocolate has amazing dark chocolates :)
