Seems like all I have is this computer to talk to. I just had a beautiful baby boy May 20, 2012. I had started a weight loss plan before I found out I was pregnant and I was doing great at it. But, due to the pregnancy I gained 19 lbs. After I had the baby I was happy to see that I lost the 19 lbs + an additional 13 lbs. I was thrilled to see the extra 13 come off. Yes, that did motivate me to continue.
Well, I'm guessing it's due to the postpartum but I'm tired, I'm having headache all the time, I feel sick almost everyday, and no willpower to do anything. I just stopped with all the healthy stuff. That changed when I decided to go this site. I have regained the motive to do it again.
It's hard when there's no support at home. My fiancee. Every time I do any exercises, he has to make sexual comments or laugh and it makes me stop and not want do it any more. I try to talk to him and let him know how it makes me feel. Then, he saw that I am counting my calories. I told him that I am only able to eat a certain amount. He thinks I'm not eating enough. He thinks, since I just had the baby and that I'm still trying to heal from it, that I should eat a lot more. I argue with him about how important it was for me to eat less than 2000 cal. He thinks I should eat the same way I was when I was pregnant. He even brings home food that I don't need to eat and he knows it. I told him it doesn't work that way. I wish I had more support from him.
I hope that he would follow me in this and it will help him as well.
I know one thing. I will do my best not to let him or anyone bring me down or stop me. I have to keep in mine that this is for myself.
