Getting my body back!

PMy twins will be 11 months old next week and I have very mixed emotions about the fact that they are both weaning themselves from nursing without much help from me. I'm sad because I am going to miss that special bonding time, but I'm so excited to be able to take better control over my appetite. Hopefully they can and will still nurse once or twice a day for awhile but I won't ever have to feel bad about working out diminishing my supply. 

So with that said I'm finally back on track.  At 245 lbs last week I am starting out with even more to lose than when I started almost two years ago. I am going to be eating as much clean whole foods as possible, and also keeping track of my calories on myfitnesspal on my phone. I need to make sure I don't over eat. 

Unlike last time I won't be doing a 90 day or 60 day program. I will be doing whatever workout I can when I can around my kids' an husband's schedule. I want to stick to and finish the couch to 5k program but have to be careful about it hurting my knees and ankle since I'm a lot heavier now. I will also do some T25, 30 day shred, and possibly some Zumba classes if I can make it to the class at the gym. I'm also going to use my new treadmill as often as I can.

So far in the last 3 days I've lost 2 lbs. so far so good. Wish me luck, it's going to be hard with a 2 year old and 11 month old twins!
