Can I lose 10 pounds already…..PLEASE – My 2013 Fitness Goal!

I can personally say that it is a lot of work getting your body back once you’ve had a baby, I am still vigorously working at it.

When I first became pregnant I was around the 130 pound/59 kilogram mark.

During my pregnancy (with my now 2.5 year old Son) I put on 26 pounds/12 kilo, which I do not think is a lot? Maybe this was because I did not really get any of those weird cravings you hear pregnant women talking about like pickles and ice-cream!
