Health Kick! Who's with me!??

I'm due August 28th, and really want August mommies (or anyone)  who want to give each other support through this last trimester and especially after baby, to get our bodies back and/or better than before! I'm really determined and would love to hear your experiences/advice, since we're going through this together we should lend each other some support! I'm a pinterest addict and so far am relying on just pinterest to get me through, so anybody down with me!? (;

My EDD is the day before yours!! Im 7months and only gained 16lbs and I'm so proud of myself!! I've always been a bit on the heavier side and I'm built to handle that type of weight but I've decided that after my little boy is born and I'm cleared I want to drop to a size 10 (something I've never been!) so around 145lbs I have a big obsession with pin-up dolls and my treat for achieving my goal is a pin-up photo shoot and my biggest supporter is my husband!!  He said he will do whatever it take to help me get where I want to be! Good luck and set some goals! Even if it's just to be able to walk out in public in a bikini!!! Having a goal makes me want to do it even more!!!

I am down with ya'll! Not quite in my third trimester yet but I am getting there. 24 weeks 3 days. I am cutting back on sodas, added in a salad into my diet and starting to do a stretching and exercise routine! I'm doing fine and on track with my weight gain but I just want to be a tad bit more healthy! After baby, I am BFing and gonna hit my home gym something fierce!

I am here for you ladies!!

I'll be 29 weeks tmw and due August 20th. I can't wait to get in shape after I have my daughter. Right now I'm not too worried about exercising because I've only gained 1lb and my daughter is measuring small. I'm hoping to lose 40lbs after I have her so I'll weigh about 135 then and tone my stomach and butt up. It's just the extra skin from having three kids. I can't wait to look and feel healthy! :)

Yayy! So we should definitely follow each other, remember my picture so we can keep up! I was 160 pre pregnancy and 140 has always been a goal weight, that seems the best to fit my frame! And feeling healthy is what I want, that will be the best to not feel disgusting after eating 3 cinnamon rolls or whatever. Lol I love pin up! They're so gorgeous, and that's back in the day with the thick models (; lol.

Yess, the goal is to be comfortable and feel good and healthy! I didn't have too much of a problem losing weight after my son, but I want it to be healthy and the right way! And with newborn and toddler it will be hard to keep a strict schedule, so we gotta do or best! I've gained 19lbs in 27wks so I'll go in tomorrow and get weighed at my appt and see if I want to cry or smile! Lol

Yoga! Ouch, lol. I will be willing to try, but I don't know if I'll be limber enough to handle that anytime soon! Good luck to all you ladies, let's do this! I'm excited!
