Hope you are all ready for Christmas. I finished up last night. That's about as last minute as i've been in a very long time. I don't like that feeling.
I've been very MIA here that past couple months. For good reason! I'm pregnant! finally! I've been wanting a baby for so long. but money and job issues have kept us from trying. DH finally decided it was time. I thought it would take a lot longer to conceive than it did. boy was i surprised when the stick showed positive!
i have researched pregnancy and weight loss and have found some very informative websites and articles. i am no where near the shape i want to be in to have a baby. but i have realized getting pregnant and having a baby were the motivation i needed to change my life for the better. wish i had known this 5 years ago! anyway, i have read that if you are overweight when you get pregnant losing a few lbs or not gaining during the pregnancy were perfectly fine and will benefit the baby. i've been working on eating healthier, which is not easy during the holidays, and i've kept my weight fluctuating between 224 and 228. so i'm happy with that so far. i'm kind of scared to work out. i've heard different views on what you can or cannot do and what you should and should not do. i've been doing a lot of walk away the pounds videos.
i probably won't be as active in sp since i won't be doing challenges and stuff. but i'm certainly going to stay active here with tracking food and activity.
i'm very excited about this new chapter in my life and can't wait to be a fit, active mommy! thank you all so much for being a part of this journey.
