New Mom Trying To Lose Pregnancy Weight

I am a new first time Mom. I have a beautiful 4 1/2 month old daughter. I decided to quit my job when I was 8 months pregnant to be a stay at home Mom and I have enjoyed every minute of it! My pregnancy was great and my delivery was a lot easier than I expected thanks to the epidermal :-) The only thing that I could complain about with this whole experience is losing the pregnancy weight! My pre-pregnancy weight was 120. I gained 46lbs during my pregnancy. I gained a lot more than I thought I would and now I'm paying for it! I've always been the "skinny girl" and never had to watch my weight. I could eat whatever I wanted never exercised but was never lazy. So this whole experience has been really tough for me because I've had to change my diet and exercise 5-6 times a week! But because I have changed my bad habits I have lost 37lbs and it feels great! It definitely hasn't been easy but I'm very proud of myself. I've had plenty of breakdowns but thank god my husband has been a great support! I only have 9 more lbs to lose and I'm hoping to lose it by the beginning of April. Then I'll start working on toning this tummy :-)

Yeah there's a lot you have to sacrifice to have a baby but its all worth it! It's amazing how much love I have for my baby girl! We had a little scare last week with her when she went to her 4 month check up at the pediatrician. The doctor had a hard time feeling her soft spot in the front of the head which meant she thought it might have closed earlier than it should which could of meant she would of had to have surgery because the brain would not be able to grow properly etc. So my pediatrician doctor wanted us to schedule an appointment with the neurologist to take a look at it. He also had a hard time finding her soft spot. So he wanted us to get some x rays to make sure. He said just because he couldn't feel it didn't mean that it wasn't there. Long story short we got the results back last Friday and thank god everything is normal. But its so weird because I love her to death before all this happened but I am so more appreciative of her even more now after all this has happened.
