September was another horrible month for diet and exercise. I got sick right after the baby's birthday in late August, and have been sick for FOUR WEEKS now. The chest infection has left me breathless, making it hard to exercise. Add to that big changes in our diet due to new allergy info for the baby and it equals a month of no progress. BUT! I am proud of the fact that despite the many challenges over the last two months I am holding steady. I had gained 4 pounds and have lost 3 already, and so I really do feel lucky in that regard. There are going to be more doctor appointments for the baby, more tweaking of the foods we can eat, and that will continue to be challenging. So I am putting aside my goal of losing all the weight I wanted to by Christmas, but I'm feeling better about that. My baby's health, and mine, are more important than a number on a scale. And I am back in the realm of the simply overweight, not obese, so I have time on my side to lose more when our health outlook brightens.
