hellooo summer.... goodbye thunderthighs?!

It has been 5 weeks since I had this little angel.
It has been 10 months since I have worn MY clothes.
My closet is a depressing sight. the clothes, they are beautiful. they stare back at me begging me to wear them. then, when I attempt to put them on, they laugh at me and the bully maternity clothes start cheering b/c they have won yet another fight.

I gained 50lbs while I was pregnant. you're not surprised right? you saw the pictures.
I have lost a little over 30 (ok 32...) in the last 5 weeks.
Tomorrow I am expecting the "go ahead" to really start working out. I have been taking long walks with the baby almost everyday and doing some beginner workouts the past 2 weeks, but I am chomping at the bit to get rid of these freaking extra lbs. Never in my life have I weighed this much and I do not like it.

So here's the deal. I go back to work in a month. I have lots of fun, important things coming up in the next couple weeks. I would like to look and feel good.
I am pretty motivated to get this weight off, but I need some help. What did you find to help you loose that pregnancy weight? I am up for pretty much anything! I just need to get rid of these damn thunder thighs. And I want my hips to go back to normal....

PS... Knee is doing really well. Got the go ahead on PT for 4 weeks and then it is back to the grind!

Ok, everyone laughed at me when I said I'd make time to workout. Somehow, they knew it's nearly impossible some days! Ha. So, what I've fallen in love with is a weighted jump rope. Cardio+light weight "training" = 2 birds, 1 stone. :) I do this and core exercises on my exercise ball.

You can do it! Don't be so hard on yourself.

i OBVIOUSLY never found anything usefull in losing the baby weight b/c i never lost it....for any of the three pregnancies. :-( but i'm about to try "the 30 day shred". its jillian's (the trainer from the biggest loser). i've been hearing good things. idk though.
