I have been doing good exercising, but I realize diet is a very important part of the picture. I just recently bought a candy heart and probably ate too many to count. I didn't really care, and I wasn't eating it for any type of satisfaction. It was giving me pleasure, but I would have been fine if I stopped at two or three. I did not get sick. But it made me realize we all make mistakes. I just have to get back up on my feet and start over. I am doing my best to eat good and healthy, and I am proud of my choices when I don't over eat or make a good choice in eating vegis and whole foods. It takes time. I do not want to jeopardize any excuse of " well, I am eating for two" I have been there before. I know with this pregnancy, the baby weight will melt off just like the celebrities. because I am eating well and continuing to exercise. I am so proud of my accomplishments even though I can not tell by the scale. I just know my belly is growing and that is the only thing growing!! I feel wonderful. Have energy at times, and I am working on not wrecking all the hard work I did before I got pregnant. I notice on facebook people posting how much weight they have lost because of some quick fix. I am sad for them, they will gain it all back. What I am doing is a lifestyle change. It is rubbing off on my husband! He is liking the way he feels after he eats and wants me to help him to eat better. Well, enough of my rambling on. Blessings to you all on your achievements and don't be so hard on yourself when you indulge every once in a while. Shan

    i wouldn't beat yourself up about it. i feel like i definitely need to improve my eating habits as i've been craving sugar pretty badly giving in every time. i've been worried that all the extra carbs will make me gain unnecessary weight. my bmi was around 28 before i got pregnant, so i was advised to gain less than 25 lbs. i have been weighing myself every 3-4 days just to monitor any excess gain. at week 12 i'm happy to say i've only gained 2 pounds which im sure went right to my chest!

    best of luck with the next coming months!
