Here we go after baby # 2

Thursday, February 04, 2010

So, the pregnancy is over and it is SO time to lose this weight. After a nasty pregnancy in which I had gestational diabetes, I am committed to losing the weight so that I never have to worry about type 2 diabetes, nor any of the horrible feelings that the medication and extra weight did to my health.

I am starting this week to make sure I log everything that I eat and drink my 8 glasses of water per day. Small steps- the Dr kind of opened my mind when he told me to focus on losing 30 pounds this year- I have over 100 to lose, so that seemed like crazy talk, but he astutely pointed out that If I had focused on those goals a couple of years ago I would be in my correct weight range now- also that 30 pounds lost the correct way would probably stay off. Now, I'm not going to lie- I hope I can blow that out of the water, but I am committed to at least that 30 pounds.

    Hey, congrats on the newbie! Someone told me that the first year consists of the longest days, but the shortest months - they were totally right! I can't believe my little bean is now almost a year and a half!!

    I totally get where you're at! I gained soooo much weight while pregnant, and I thought, 'hey, no worries - I'll have a year off (yay, Canadian mat leave!) and I'll be able to lose it.' Big HAHAHAHAHA. Apparently, no one told me how much work a baby is...! ha.

    Anyhoo, we're all in the same boat, so keep on keepin' on!
