I gave birth to our beautiful baby girl, Maia Star in March. During pregnancy, I gained 35 lbs. Within 3 weeks after delivery, I lost @ 25 lbs. I'd really like to lose another 15-20 lbs. I joined Stroller Strides a week ago today and I'm really glad I did. You really get what you pay for with this program - a great workout, awesome instructor, and lots of new mommy friends.
My midwife suggested that I join because I was exhausted and isolated at home with the baby. It's been pretty challenging to keep up with the other ladies, but I'm proud of myself for getting my butt out there and trying. My baby laughs at me when I'm red faced and panting while doing jumping jacks or holding a plank pose. Mommy is not exactly athletic.
I love being out there with the other moms. Community is extremely important after having a baby. I'm looking forward to getting together for Moms Night Out and play dates with the kiddos. I highly recommend that moms (especially new moms) join their local Stroller Strides group. The company changed their name to Fit4Mom to include other classes like Stroller Barre and prenatal workouts. I purchased the unlimited plan for $60/month and I will be keeping readers posted on my personal progress, weight loss, and all the fun activities with the group.
