Please don't tell me my weight

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Yes maybe I have been in denial this pregnancy over my weight. I can still do all my jumps in WERQ and I can still stand for an 8 hr day at work just fine. I don't feel like I look heavier in the mirror. Well Maybe I do, maybe just not in the face... yet. Anyway when I got to my OB I ask the nurse not to tell me my weight, I don't wanna focus on the number. I wanna focus on being healthy. Well yesterday she blurted it out before I could say "Please don't....". Ugh it was 201, holy crap! This was a monday morning after having a bagel and 2 cups of coffee with 1 cup ice. Plus Sunday night I ordered a pizza for dinner and subjway for lunch and Saturday we had fried chicken for dinner and let's not talk about what else. Point is I need get a grip. Pregnancy is not an excuse to eat garbage and be like "woah that baby really wanted some ben and jerry's". So yes it was good that she ignored me and told me my weight despite my efforts to stop her. I think I need to start weighing myself at home and keeping an eye on this. Ignoring anything is a bad idea. I can still eat a ton of stuff. But it has to be good stuff, not meat shop hot dogs and ordering cracker barrel to go. I knew I had issues when I did the last one. Been on a such a restricted diet for the past 6-7 yrs, I guess I went a little bit crazy. Did I get anything out of it? No. I did watch how addictive sugar is and how hard it is to skip a day without it once u start having it regularly.
I am also back to my rule of eating out once a week and that is also counted in ordering in/pick up. I know better, I will do better. I promise, self, I wont get us back in the place we once were. Fatty food is not worth it. Plus there is no amount of exercise you can do to combat fatty food, none.

    (((HUG))) I know how upsetting this is for you. You are going to be okay, and you know what to do. You are still doing awesome, and your labor will be very smooth because of all the exercise you are continuing to do. I was sedentary with my girls and those were difficult labors, but with the boys I was a lot more active and my labors were much easier.

    Its good that you realize this now though, instead of later on in the pregnancy. :)

    Keep on Keeping on! You can do this!

    *PS: Congratulations on the pregnancy btw! Do you know if its a boy or a girl yet? emoticon

    You are right. It's still 80% diet and 20% exercise. You normally eat a really healthy diet and you like lots of healthy foods so I think if you just get back to the way you normally eat most of the time you will be okay. Of course almost everyone has crazy ravings during pregnancy and it won't hurt to indulge in them occasionally. I wanted shrimp a lot and banana and chocolate ice cream. I also wanted strawberry crepes and I have never eaten them. LOL.

    While it is not the only barometer of progress, weight is the most convenient to track
