I'm Back... Again...
Saturday, February 25, 2012
It has been a long time since I blogged. I wish I could say that I didn't have time to blog because I was off working out and getting fit and eating healthy... but I wasn't
. I was being lazy and working on gaining back all the weight I had worked so hard to lose.
I managed to reach my highest weight - 242.8. Coincidentally, this is the same weight as my 6' tall husband... yikes! I will never forget the look on his face when I told him that his 5'3" wife weighs the exact same weight as him. It was heartbreaking. Even worse when I started wearing his t-shirts and sweatshirts because I couldn't fit into any of my own. It was like wearing a banner across my chest.
And to add to my misery, we have been talking about having a baby. More than talking, even trying. Every month that I find out I am not pregnant I am filled with a little sadness and and also a little relief. How can I possibly have a healthy pregnancy at this size and my current level of health? And once I have the baby, how can I expect to keep up with a baby and try to get back into shape.
So... I'm doing the only thing I know that makes sense and I am coming back to SparkPeople and starting fresh - healthy food, working out, great support... and my determination to make it work this time.
So, here's to a fresh start and working to get back to this...
