Remember to focus on fresh food. It helps when you take into consideration the type of foods and habits you want your child to have so that your child doesn't have to deal with the same struggle as you. 

Honestly that has been what has been motivating me. I haven't lost any weight, but have toned up. I still slip with food from time to time (hormonal eating is the worst). It is most improtant to remember to set realistic goals and choose a lifestyle change, not just another diet. I know easier said then done, it comes to planning really, know when you will need snacks and quick meals. Soups are a great way to get veggies and protein in all at once and if you make it in a crockpot it doesn't take long and you can control the sodium. 

Good luck and good health to you!

Just a thought - can't speak from experience as I've never had a baby of my own. I'm wondering if it might be helpful for you to talk to your doctor or to a nutritionist/etc about an appropriate diet if you are currently breastfeeding. If you are, your body's nutritional needs might be different than they would be otherwise. I would particularly caution against doing anything too extreme whether or not you are breastfeeding - you need to be sure that you have the energy and health you need to look after your family.

If your husband is worth his salt, he'll get it, and you'll be just as beautiful or more caring for the life you've made together than you were before. It's awesome and praiseworthy to want to stay attractive to him, but do talk to him about it, and give yourself time. :)

Thank you for so much for those amazing advice!! Unfortunately I am not breastfeeding because I dried out 2 weeks after birth. I will definitely lol into taking to a doc or nutritionist. I've never thought about that. Thank you so much!!
