Got on the scale this morning and I have gained 6 pounds since my procedure Friday morning. Seriously, like having a m/c isn't hard enough now my weight is just flying up and up. Really sad and frustrated today but going to keep on tracking and trying to make better decisions today. Hopefully some of this weight is water weight and hopefully my body will return to normal soon.

    I've had 2 miscarriages, and it takes a while for your body to return to "normal." Keep feeding it healthy foods and keep moving as much as you can. You'll get there!

    I agree with Goosiemoon- likely water weight. I know it must be a very sad time and your body is recovering--allow yourself a while to rest :) emoticon emoticon

    I'm willing to bet that a significant portion of that is water weight.
Discouraging, yes. But it should settle down.

Getting back on the saddle....

Thursday, January 31, 2013

After complications with my early pregnancy that ended in miscarriage; it's time for me to get back on the saddle. Over the last 8 weeks I have gained at least 10 pounds (probably closer to 15 but I quit weighing myself) and have not been able to workout. Looking forward to getting back to my routine and keeping motivated. Luckily, we'll be able to try again in a couple of months but for now I'm going to take care of me emoticon

I have eaten horrible this holiday season. I'm not sure what has come over me but I am stopping the madness. I have gained at least 5 pounds but probably more since I have quit weighing myself. I don't know it if was because I have been working so hard or if I have given up since my husband and I are trying to have another a baby. Whatever it is I must and I will get back on track. emoticon

  Yes -- emoticon ! Everyone has their off times. What's important is that you assess what happened and make the appropriate changes, right? And it sounds like you know exactly how to do that. Good luck! :)

2 year Anniversary

Monday, April 02, 2012

wow!!! I cannot believe it has been two years since I started sparking. I am proud to say I am still maintaining my goal weight and I am even starting to get some killer abs. I must admit, it is a challenge everyday and some days I fail but I have learned to not let one failure turn into many failures. The most important thing is to not give up and keep tracking. emoticon

One Year!

Saturday, April 02, 2011

One year ago today I decided to get back in shape and lose the baby weight for good. I am proud say that over the last year I have lost 24 lbs (1 pound away from my goal weight) and I went from a size 6/8 to a 2/4. I realize 24 lbs in a year isn't exactly record breaking weight loss but I did it the healthy way and at 5'1" 24 lbs makes a HUGE difference. The best about losing weight is how good I look and feel about myself.

I have also had so many people ask me how I did it and I love telling them diet and exercise... some look in awe like they were really hoping I had found the magic pill. I have had others ask me to help them on their weight loss journey and then I am the one in awe. Who me? I am nobody special, no expert, no professional, I just made my mind up one day and stuck to it. Then I realized that's just it. You have to want to lose weight and you have to want to be healthy. Until you decide weight loss is what you truly want you will not succeed. I have had many days that I wanted to quit and I did not make healthy choices but I got right back on track.

Losing with Spark People actually became so easy that I exceeded my original goal of 15 lbs! I am the weight I always wanted to be, I have lost those last 5 pounds (well last 4) and I am now enjoying "bad food" but in moderation. Spark People kept me accountable and I didn't want to let myself down. I logged in daily and collected my points like there was a huge prize to win. My husband even told me at one point I had become obsessed with Spark People but it was working, I was losing weight. How could I not be obsessed? Even though my points are virtual I did win a huge prize; I won my health and happiness and there's not a price tag for that.
