Are You Ready For Summer?

lose weightThis year is flying by faster than ever. I can't believe it is almost summer! I didn't even realize summer was here until I noticed a swimsuit display during a recent shopping trip to Aeropostale. I don't know about you, but I feel like I am nowhere near ready! I am so behind on getting in shape for summer. I gained 90 pounds during my pregnancy. Everyone I know keeps telling me "you just had a baby, you will lose the weight." Did I mention my son is almost two?

I have tried every fad diet imaginable: Cabbage Soup Diet, Yogurt Diet, Atkins diet, and those are just to name a few. I have come to the conclusion that fad diets just don't work. Prior to my pregnancy, I was overweight. My doctors suggested I lose weight in order to become pregnant and suggested I try The South Beach Diet. I found South Beach Diet coupons for recipes, advice and support. I was able to lose 30 pounds in 30 months and kept it off until I became pregnant. The South Beach Diet is not a fad diet. It is lifestyle change. You are taught how to make healthier choices and the weight really does just melt away.

I would love to get back on the South Beach Diet, if only I could convince the rest of the family to follow with me. It's such a hassle to cook three different meals. I think a more practical approach is to use discounts for eDiets. They have personalized menus, plans customized to your weight loss goals, convenient recipes and fast food options and over 20 plans to choose from. I definitely think I could find a plan from eDiets to work for the entire family!

So, are you ready for summer? What steps did you take to get in shape? Are you still battling with those pregnancy pounds?

  2. I'm going to keep blaming my son for baby weight...he's going to be 4 in I def. need to tone up...I'm working on it..but I'll probably never really feel ready!!
