Has it really been almost 3 months since I posted on here? Wow! Time flies, I guess.
I'm laughing at myself a little, reading the last few posts I wrote. In July and August, I'd probably have cried and thrown in the towel if I'd known that in November I'd only be able to claim a 5 pound loss in 3 months. But ya know what, I'm amazed by it and telling myself to be careful instead. That seemingly small loss means that I'm taking care of myself and not letting all those crazy cravings get out of control. It means that I'm eating healthy and even though I'm not getting the exercise I'd like to, I'm doing ok. And I know that the weight loss won't continue for much longer.
Pregnancy isn't the time to worrying about the weight, but it is an excellent time to get myself on track with good eating habits.
Oh! Did I forget to mention that little detail? Yeah, I'm 11 weeks pregnant! Peanut is due to arrive in mid-to-late May. We didn't expect it, but we're all thrilled!! So far, everything looks healthy and happy and good!
So, assuming that I remember to keep up with this, you won't hear much about weight loss or great new exercise plans (lots of walking and stuff like that). But, you may see a lot about trying to strengthen good habits and figure out good routines that will work with another little one in the picture. I know it won't be easy, but it's a good kind of difficult, ya know?
Oh! And if you're my friend on Facebook, you didn't miss an announcement... We aren't telling there until after Thanksgiving (15 weeks).
