being pregnant and gaining weight
Thursday, February 21, 2013
You know it's hard to have come such a long way by losing 85 pounds. It's hard to look at the scale daily and deal with that up and down cycle. It took me about 2.5 years to get down to 140 and well I still wasn't fully satisfied but I also wasn't working hard enough to lose more. I got comfortable and content for the time being.
I'm now pregnant and at 15 weeks. I gained about 11 pounds already and so am not thrilled about the weight. I'm thrilled about having my first baby but I'm scared and nervous about my weight gain. I know I have to gain but after coming all this way to than gain again and hearing so many stories of how hard it is to lose baby weight it unnerving.
I like before still weigh myself almost daily and just shake my head when I see another 1 or 2 pounds added on. I'm not at about 154 and again am only 15weeks. I have 25 more weeks to go and that is suppose to be a pound a week. 25 more pounds :-/
Well I'm writing this to get it off my chest but at the same time I want to speak to people. People that can give me advise or have been there and know what I'm going through. Just to think I have to do Insanity again after the birth and keep retracing all my meals which is hard enough now to do because I pick a lot.
I'm just well not wanting to gain 50 pounds but juicy cheesy bacon burgers, chocolate on chocolate cakes, milk shakes, buttery salty popcorn, lazy days on the couch or at the movies, appeal so super much to me. I'm reading How to Have a Healthy Pregnancy by the Mayo Clinic. I hear the advise and I do most of it but that Coke Cherry Zero, those Doritos, that egg roll is screaming my name.
What is a pregnant girl to do?
