Floating thoughts...

Friday, March 22, 2013

As I sit here eating a breakfast of 3 turkey bacon slices, 2 hard boiled egg whites, a cup of sliced mixed fruit, an english muffin, and a cup of decaf coffee...

So yes that is my breakfast and I'm writing this while I eat it thinking how much more weight am I going to gain? I'm pregnant yes I know and everyone keeps reminding me BUT I am only half way through my pregnancy and have gained 20lbs. I already started "overweight" at 145lbs and now I'm 165. I'm due in August and am only expected to grow bigger.

I walk 2-3 days a week for an hour each time. I do yoga 1 day a week for an hour. I eat healthy for the most part. Honestly I'm still eating the way I did before I got pregnant. Yes It's my first and yes expect to gain more this time than the next ones blah blah blah that's what I keep hearing.

Seriously it's hard on me. The people I've been talking to aren't understanding where I'm coming from. To lose 85lbs since 2010 and now see the scale creeping up again it's scary. I hear so many stories of people having difficulty losing the baby weight and only gain more. Yeah I'm enjoying my pregnancy and how I'm creating a little boy in my body that isn't an issue. The issue is having to buy new clothes again bc mine are getting small. The issue is weighing myself weekly to make sure I stay on track. The issue is having gained 20lbs with in 4 months. The issue is how much more am I going to gain?!

Man this little boy I'm going to have will have to watch me work out while he is in his little jumper seat. he will be watching his mom eat fruits and salads. He will see her skinnier and try to tighten her body again because that's what I want to have after I give birth.

    Hang in there! I know it's hard & scary. Try doing things that really honor your pregnancy - for me I went out and bought pregnancy clothes ASAP so that it reinforced that I was doing this cause baby was growing, not cause I was just screwing up and putting on the weight. Buy baby books, stuff like that.

    Keep up whatever activity you're capable of, and use this time to really hone your diet and whip any trouble bits into shape. :)

    Yes, gaining the weight is REALLY hard after all the work we've done, but right now it IS healthy, and you're NOT s crewing up! And you did it once, you can do it again. Talk to your doctor (or maybe ask for a referral to a diatician) about your concerns, and where you're coming from so you have some help keeping what you eat in healthy ranges for the pregnancy.

    Hang in there honey, I know how hard it is to see the scale creep up but you are doing everything right, eating healthfully, getting exercise; you have to tools to get through this pregnancy and get back on track when your beautiful boy is born. Your son will LEARN to make physical activity and healthy eating part of his life by watching you!
