After I had my first daughter I realized..Wow i ate way too much during this pregnancy. I treated it as a free ticket to eat anything!! Without fully realizing "hey im carrying a precious gift here, the aim isnt to just eat, its to eat right." Well that wouldve helped me 80 lbs and two asses earlier. I didnt quite get back to what I was before I had my second child. i lost 70 lbs of the baby weight though. Over a year later. Now after having my son and realizing before hand that healthy eating and a bit of exercise is good for everyone I gained the appropriate amount and shed ALL of my baby weight plus 10 more lbs and am at my pre preg weight I was before my first child came to the picture. Now Im still not "healthy" and am thinking of going completely vegan. Any thoughts or tips?

Being completely vegan isn't going to make you healthy.. it is imperative that you know what you are putting into your body being on such a diet. It is easy to become deficient in essential vitamins and nutrients. Do your research first and perhaps even discuss it with your doctor.. To be healthy just stay away from all the processed foods and drinks on the market.. eat fresh and local..

Congratulations to you in being successful with shedding your baby weight. It's one of the toughest things to do, post-baby. I bet you feel GREAT!

I don't have any tips on becoming a Vegan, as I am not one. That's not to say I don't support it, as I do, so I do hope you get the insight you are looking for to become successful with it.

Thanks for sharing your inspiration.
