I'm just about to head to bed. I haven't been doing much here for a while. I found out I was pregnant and have had little to no energy.

So far I haven't gained too much more than where I was at before, so I just haven't been thinking much of the whole weight loss thing since...well...I'm going to be gaining no matter what I do.

Got into a conversation with the hubby today in the car. He was surprised that I weighted more than him, and had since pre-pregnancy. Then he made a comment about how I needed to get up and move more.

Yeah. Duh. The thing is, i feel like I've been hit by a bus most of the time. Part of that is because I don't move. I also don't feel good after I eat what is considered "healthy" food. My doctor said to eat protein and carbs in small doses and that will make things manageable for me. Finding healthy, appetizing options feels impossible. Keep in mind, I don't know how to cook. At all. Because I'm tired and smells make me sick, the idea of cooking makes me nauseous before I even enter the kitchen. About the only thing awesome going for me is that I crave tomatoes like no other. Eggs too.

So I need to figure out how to get more energy, and eat healthy foods. Last time I gained 60 pounds of weight because I retained a lot of water. I really don't want that to happen again.

I feel stuck. The only exercise I can really do anyway is walking. :/ Which is better than nothing. But...I still feel stuck.

    Keep walking if that is all you can handle at the present time. Check with your Dr./clinic to see if they have a nutricionist on staff and talk with them, they could give you ideas for foods which you should be eating or not eating during your pregnancy to help with keeping sown water gain.

    Just eat healthy for the baby. The baby weight will come off. Try doing light exercise while you are preggies. That will help your labor. Ask the doctor for an exercise guide. Morning sickness is never fun

    you're pregnant. that's a big deal. i remember smelling food, cooked or raw, made me real nauseous the first three months or so. walking is good while you're pregnant.
