Back to the Spark

Monday, May 11, 2009

I have been um...on hiatus (!?) for a year now. My baby girl turns 5 months old today and I have been back to healthy diet and exercise for 3 days now. I am doing very well, but I have to retrain myself again. I got very used to eating whatever I wanted during my pregnancy. After I had my daughter, I actually weighed less than I did when I got pregnant, even after losing 20+ lbs on the Spark diet before I conceived. BUT, I had a hard time readjusting to only eating for one. While pregnant & nursing, I could literally eat anything and my body would burn it off. I was hungry almost all the time due to the need for extra calories, so my portion sizes had gone up quite a bit. My stomach got used to the larger portions and it argues with me all the time about how it needs more. I miss being able to eat extra carbs and they are the toughest for me to give up. I LOVE carbs. I won't give in though. I need to get healthy again. I want to start trying for another (our last) baby in December 09.

    OMG..I have also been on hiatus for a year and my son just turned 5 months also. I woke up today and asked myself "what am I doing?" I need to get back to eating healthy and exercising. I had lost 30 lbs before my son was born and like you have seen larger portions due to a constant hunger from nursing. I have heard that women who murse lose weight quicker but not me. I had such great success with Spark before and know I will again. I just wish I would have kept on the program during the pregnancy, but I'm not looking back...I'm looking forward. Good luck and we can do this!!!!!
