Obsessed with foooood!

Monday, December 10, 2012

Uh, trying to write this blog in place of stuffing my face with more food! I just thought to myself, "I can't wait to go to sleep so I can wake up tomorrow and eat more food." Not exactly a healthy thought, but at least I know I'm cut off the rest of today! I tracked my calories for the day - hadn't in a while - in an attempt to convince myself that I don't need anything else today!

I'm 21 weeks pregnant tomorrow. I didn't gain any weight for the first trimester and I used it as an excuse to go even more liberally with my intake. I also finally felt hungry again after being a bit queasy. Now I've gained about a pound a week, which is normal, but I just don't want to go over that! I'm about 10 pounds up so that puts me on track for a 30 pound weight gain overall. As long as I get this food obsession under control!

I am still yet to reach my highest weight I was before I started SP. I am wondering how it will feel to pass that weight! I'm still in my "comfort zone" now - none of the numbers on the scale are too much of a shocker yet. I think the scale will be harder to watch than my belly. I love seeing my bump grow!! It's all worth it and reversible with a little hard work and some serious Sparking!

    Growing a baby is important business. As long as you are eating healthy food, then you are doing the best thing for your little one. Go you!

    Sounds like baby is growing :) Don't beat yourself up over food -- just make healthy choices. I ate a ton when I was pregnant with my daughter. I gained 35 lbs and dropped all but 10 of them during breast feeding. The last 10 I had to work at but you are already in that habit!!!

    Enjoy being a new mama! :)

    What an adventure! Im glad you're not so nauseous anymore, and also glad you're aware of your health while you're pregnant, but don't be too obsessed. I can't believe its 21 weeks already! Congrats again.

    Every time I see baby things I think of you. I almost bought you a silicone bib yesterday that looked like a trough that can catch anything that falls from baby's mouth...but then I realized that the words "fashionable, cute" on the package were just marketing ploys and your baby might look like a futuristic robot wearing it.

    Well what do you expect after not eating (or feeling nauseated) for 3 months? Congrats on the wee one!!

    Congratulations! It's such an amazing experience. Keep yourself focused, but remember to be kind to yourself and that little bambino.
