I didn't do weeks 9-12 because my workouts, I was already posting them daily and it would be too redundant.. but I am planning on doing a final video - just to have it so people can refer to it later (and for those that are not subbed to my blog and only my Youtube will find it useful).
But I originally started out (after I had my 3rd baby) at a whopping 154lbs.. I was breastfeeding so this also probably had quite a bit to do with my weight lol.
My Final Weight on July 22, 2012! :) Total of 22.2lbs Lost
- 1st pregnancy (a lot of medical complications): Gained nearly 65lbs and had to have a c-section with my first baby because her heart was not strong enough to survive a natural delivery and the doctors did not want to chance it. After I had my first daughter - I Did NOT work out at all.. it wasn't until she was 1 years old that I started to lose weight (naturally, because I never worked out - but I still had a terrible c-section gut) but of course I got knocked up as soon as I slimmed down (My First Baby & 2nd Baby are about 19 Months apart)
- 2nd pregnancy - Gained about 50lbs had her naturally - VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Section):: I literally had no medication for her because she came so fast.
After my 2nd pregnancy, It wasn't until She was about almost two years old that I started working out.. I also lost over 20lbs and was at my pre-pregnancy weight.. (i was so happy to be wearing size 3 again) and then I got knocked up again LOL!
- 3rd pregnancy: Gained 35-40lbs and was exercising throughout my whole pregnancy (very proud of myself for that) Which enabled me to bounce back faster. I started working out exactly at 6 weeks post partum and that is when I entered the Elite Ambition Challenge on Bodybuilding.com (See WEEK 1 blog post)
And Here are my pictures (Both Before & After.. Side by side for comparison!)

Here is my Final Essay on the Elite Ambition Challenge
- The Question Was How did you accomplish your goal, and what was your diet and training like.
