Okay, now that I have your attention…

It’s time to return to this blog’s roots and start “shaping up to be a mom” (third time, third time!).

That’s right, it’s time for fitness, nutrition, weight loss, and getting back to my pre-baby body!

pre-babies body

Problem is, I don’t know where to start. There are so many schools of thought out there, so many programs, so many products, that I don’t know what to try.

Shakes? Those companies that sell shake mix as meal replacements? I have a friend who was very successful using those.

The It Works wraps? Anyone sell those and want to send me a sample? If they actually “work” as the name suggests, I could use about 50 of them!

Calorie counting? Train for a marathon?

Any weight loss/fitness apps that are outstanding?

So what have you tried and loved? What do you recommend? What has worked for you?

Love it? Share it!

I did Medifast a few years ago and lost weight. Then promptly gained it back. I tried doing it again but it is so hard once you get away from it. This time, I’m counting calories (I love myfitnesspal app and website) and working out – walking/running (c25k and mapmyfitness), popsugar fitness has great short workout videos, Jillian’s Shred. It’s hard but I’m down 35 pounds and feel great. I think if you’ve made up your mind and are mindful, you will be successful! :)

You just had a baby. Slow down friend. I know you are ready for your body back and that’s not a bad thing. If you are breast feeding then check out weight watchers. They have a program for nursing mothers. I you are not BF then weight watchers is good anyway. My aunt lost 70 lbs on the program!! Hang in there! You are beautiful.

You know – weight watchers was the best for me – it worked for me after my 1st and 2nd.

The thing that works for me the best is counting calories, my fitness pal is how I track them. I also walk as my exercise of choice. Violet is 16 months and my body is worse than right after she was born! I can help keep you accountable if you help me lol

Just had my 3rd 8 weeks ago. I started the Couch to 5K app on my iphone 2 weeks ago. Its working so far. I also started Plexus Slim. Its a fruity tasting drink you take when ever you like, once a day, and a pill. That’s it. I used it after my 2nd and lost about 30lbs. I am hoping it works that well again. And I didn’t gain it all back when I stopped either. Take it slow and as long as you are committed anything you do will help. I have heard great things about the 30day shred by Jillian Michaels..check it out on YouTube!

I’ve been using the Revolt Now fitness program, it is a diet and exercise program, and it’s designed for busy people with a lot on their plate. I know that a lot of participants have had HUGE results, and it has definitely done wonders for my fitness capacity. If you want to check it out, it’s at http://www.revoltnowfitness.com =)

My Fitness Pal really helped focus myself not just on my calorie intake but also how much sugar I was eating…that stuff is in everything!! Good Luck
