Tamara (SoonerMagicMama)

Name:  Tamara
Bump Screen Name:  SoonerMagicMama
Beginning Weight
Pre-Preg Weight:  117
Current Weight:  131
Target Weight:  120
Beginning Measurements: 
Need to measure
Motivation:  I miss the confidence that a toned body gave me; I hate feeling like a dumpy/frumpy mom; and I need the discipline that comes with a regular exercise program.

Anna (MrsDimka2B)

Name: Anna

Bump Screen Name: MrsDimka2B

Beginning Weight 
pre-pregnancy  135
current 155

Beginning Measurements 
TBD later!

Motivation: a huge closet full of clothes I can't wear! I feel frumpy, and as much as I LOVE being a mom, I want to also feel like a sexy wife. I am a SAHM and I would rather look like one of the "Real Housewives" than I how I look now, which is rather messy and not at all hot.  Getting into shape, losing the weight and fitting back into my old clothes will also, I hope, motivate me to take better care of myself daily. Right now I wear sweats every day, never get my hair and nails done like I used to, and I wear makeup MAYBE once a month. It's depressing, and I don't want to do it anymore!!

My wedding picture--June 2008. That's a size 8 wedding dress! I want to be able to fit into it again.

Motivation: Right now, I have a bit of a pouch. (It's a result of emotional eating / going a bit beer-crazy at 21.) It's not a big deal, but I would like to lose it before I start trying to get pregnant in July. (I would like to ensure that a bump at that point is a result of a baby, not a less-than-healthy lifestyle pre-pregnancy.)

Post-Pregnancy-180 ick...

Beginning Measurements
Will forward along later! 

Motivation: My motivation is to get rid of this terrible stomach I have.  I have a closet full of cute clothes that don't fit and I had to buy larger sizes.  I would also like to be able to run up the 4 flights of stairs at work without feeling like I am about to keel over when I get to the top. 

Lindi (monkey_mama09)

Name: Lindi

Bump Screen Name: monkey_mama09

Beginning Weight

pre-pregnancy: 154 
current: 172

Beginning Measurements: 
need to do

Motivation: Mainly, I just want to feel good about the way I look.  It's hard to do that when I've only lost 12 pounds and I'm still wearing my maternity clothes - my normal clothes are still just too tight to look remotely ok.  I want to fit into the jeans that I love without have a stupid muffin top, and not be embarrassed about my stomach if my shirt rides up and shows a little skin.  I used to feel pretty damn hot, and I can't wait to feel that way again!  

Before Picture: There was a point in my life where I practically lived in my swim suit, and I looked good in it.  This... not good at all!  :/

Name: Amber
Bump Screen Name: 2-Step
Beginning Weight
Pre-pregnancy = 160 lbs
Current = 162 lbs

Beginning Measurements
Don't have a tape measure yet, but will get back to you!

Motivation: To be healthy and feel good about the way my body looks. I have needed to lose about 15lbs since before I got pregnant, but I think I was in denial because I was fairly toned and could still wear cute clothes. The baby weight came off fairly easily, but I feel very uncomfortable in my skin. I want to be able to fit into my skinny jeans (without a muffin top) and go shopping with my girlfriends without feeling down on myself afterward. My main motivation is to get back into my bikini this summer and be comfortable in cute summer shorts!

Bridge (BridgeyBride)

Name - Bridge
Bump Screen Name - BridgeyBride
pre-pregnancy: 140
current: 175

Beginning Measurements
will do asap

Motivation - just getting healthy again... fitting back into my size 6 jeans! got married in January, was at my best a year ago.. want to get back to that!!!  Can't believe how big I am right now! Just want to hibernate this winter, but need to get moving and lose this weight

Tracy (metta1313)

Bump Screen Name-metta1313
Beginning Weight
pre-pregnancy:  177
current: I was 194 at 6w PP visit (already lost 17lbs), 177 before pregnancy.

Beginning Measurements-
Still need to take...moreso, though I'm trying not to be too much into numbers.  I've dieted so much and when I obsess over numbers, I tend to be unrealistic (being too strict) and then I gain it all back, plus some. 
Motivation-I just want to be healthy so that I can teach my little girl to be healthy.  I never had that growing up, which is why I think I have struggled with weight issues my entire life.  I never had anyone pushing me to be active or to eat healthy.  I want to break that cycle with my little Abigail.  I also want to be able to fit back into pre-pregnancy clothes, and possibly my size 8's, when I was my smallest about 5 years ago.  I haven't given up those clothes b/c I am determined to get back into them.  Overall, I don't want to be super skinny.  I just want to be healthy and comfortable in my skin.

How To Take Measurements

Sincle muscle weighs more than fat, you might get discouraged when you don't see your weight change. Taking your measurements can help reassure you that things are happening--even if you're not losing fat exactly where you want just yet. Here's a great description of where/how to measure!

  • Bust: Measure around the chest right at the nipple line, but don't pull the tape too tight.
  • Chest: Measure just under your bust
  • Waist: Measure a half-inch above your belly button or at the smallest part of your waist
  • Hips: Place tape measure around the biggest part of your hips
  • Thighs: Measure around the biggest part of each thigh
  • Calves: Measure around the largest part of each calf
  • Upper arm: Measure around the largest part of each arm above the elbow
  • Forearm: Measure around the largest part of the arm below the elbow.
