Pregnancy after losing, pregnancy pics, and tips and advice in response to MOD questions
Wednesday, August 31, 2011
I haven't blogged in forever! After being the MOD of the day again and receieving so much love and support I remember why I love my SPARKERS SOOOO MUCH and what a great community this is!! I have gotten alot of questions etc. First, I want to address my pregnancy. I am currently a little over four months pregnant. I have had questions about how I am feeling about gaining weight while pregnant after losing so much. Honestly, its VERY hard. I am up about 6lbs. My goal is 25lbs. The issue has been being TOO TIRED to workout (which is going away at this point) and being STARVING! I just want to eat everything, so I am shocked I havent gained more honestly. I am terrified of gaining WAY more than my 25lb goal while I start getting bigger. SO yes, it is scary to me. MY sparkers have reminded me that I do know how to LOSE weight so after baby is born I can take it right off- I just hope I have the same motivation and drive that I did the last 3 years! I will keep everyone updated! I think NEVER wanting to see 200 again on the scale will be motivation enough! I will keep you posted!!!
Second, I have been getting the general questions about my program and how I lost all the weight. I have previous blogs about it but the general program I did was simple:
1200 calories a day (and logging all food- THIS IS A MUST)
cardio 5 days a week (up to an hour-90 min a day, depending on if I was on a plateau) Examples are elliptical machine, jogging, walking, Leslie Sansone, Wii Active, etc
Taking my weight goal at 10lbs at time (rewarding myself every 10lbs and taking a pic)
and finding support with best friends through SPARK!
I cheat alot on the weekends and that is why my weight loss went slow, but it kept me going. If you have any other questions just ask!! And just for Cynthia- here is a latest pregnancy pic :)
Sorry my face looks weird- its early haha
