Tough times don't last.

Pregnancy can really make your self-confidence take a hit. Especially if you spent the previous year working so hard to lose weight. Yesterday I spent the morning packing away clothes that I do not fit in anymore because they’re too small or will be by the time its warm enough to wear them again.  Clothes that I was super excited to buy when my others got too big.  Tracking on MFP has become tough because I keep seeing that weight ticker go backwards… granted its moving slowly but still it looks like I’m slowly undoing all my progress. Doesn’t help that when I first told my brother I was pregnant he laughed and said you’re gonna put all that weight back on! (Aren’t brothers just wonderful sometimes?)

All that being said, I really am excited for this baby.  I know I’m supposed to gain weight back and I’m doing a good job of gaining it slowly.  I actually found some pretty cute maternity clothes which helps.  I think the problem is I’m still early enough in the pregnancy that I’m gaining weight but its not visually obvious that I’m pregnant.  I know my tummy and boobs are bigger because there’s a new life inside there, but when I look in the mirror its still really hard to feel it… 

sorry for the rant. just needed to get it out there.

“We’re adults, but, like…adult cats. Someone should probably take care of us, but we can sort of make it on our own.”

2013 in Review

First of all wow! I can not believe how many people have continued to follow me considering how long it has been since I last posted! 

This post is to fill you in on what’s been going on since I last posted and it is also my promise to start posting again.

Recap since I made this blog a diary of my weight loss journey.  I began in May 2012 when I graduated college.  In one year I lost 60lbs through counting calories and exercising and logging it on MyFitnessPal (MFP).

In April 2013 I began dating Greg.  We had started talking in January while he was on deployment and had our first date when he came back.  

During the summer of 2013 I worked part time at Dominos pizza until my full time teaching job started in September.  Between dating and working I let my healthy routines slip.  I gained back about 8lbs but otherwise maintained my loss.

I began my first full time teaching job in the fall, continued dating Greg, quit Dominos but never really got back into my healthy habits.  I was still careful not to over indulge and I occasionally went to the gym but nothing as dedicated as before.

November 2013 was HUGE. Greg proposed so we are now planning our wedding for August 2014.  We also found out that I am pregnant and we are expecting in June 2014! So needless to say I will not be losing weight again anytime soon…

However with this new year I am planning to restart my logging habits.  I am using MFP to track my food and exercise.  I want to be as healthy as I can be for this baby and with only a little over a month between baby and wedding I want to make sure my body is strong for a quick and smooth recovery.

So this is no longer a weight loss blog (at least until June), but it is my healthy habits blog!

And if anyone out there is also pregnant and working to create a healthy lifestyle please share tips :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

My boyfriend decided he wants to do the program and I, being the supportive girlfriend that I am, have decided to join him.

Pray for me.
