It was official. I was only weeks into my health and fitness program and found out I was pregnant. This made me nervous. You hear all of these stories about people gaining 50 pounds, 80 pounds, 100 pounds! Cravings taking over. Women who can’t stop eating ANYTHING that is put in front of them. I could NOT do that. I could NOT afford to gain that much weight.

Five in a half weeks later, Thursday, March 1, 2012, I went into the hospital for a scheduled c-section. The INSTANT the doctor pulled him out, my blood pressure dropped from 191/87 down to 126/74. My son, Greyson was healthy and so was I. My doctor was relieved to see my numbers drop.

We went home on Sunday and I went to the doctor’s office on Tuesday, I had lost 47 pounds in five days, since the day Greyson was born. I was weighing less than I did BEFORE I got pregnant!
