I'm Back... Again...

Saturday, February 25, 2012

It has been a long time since I blogged. I wish I could say that I didn't have time to blog because I was off working out and getting fit and eating healthy... but I wasn't emoticon. I was being lazy and working on gaining back all the weight I had worked so hard to lose.

I managed to reach my highest weight - 242.8. Coincidentally, this is the same weight as my 6' tall husband... yikes! I will never forget the look on his face when I told him that his 5'3" wife weighs the exact same weight as him. It was heartbreaking. Even worse when I started wearing his t-shirts and sweatshirts because I couldn't fit into any of my own. It was like wearing a banner across my chest.

And to add to my misery, we have been talking about having a baby. More than talking, even trying. Every month that I find out I am not pregnant I am filled with a little sadness and and also a little relief. How can I possibly have a healthy pregnancy at this size and my current level of health? And once I have the baby, how can I expect to keep up with a baby and try to get back into shape.

So... I'm doing the only thing I know that makes sense and I am coming back to SparkPeople and starting fresh - healthy food, working out, great support... and my determination to make it work this time.

So, here's to a fresh start and working to get back to this...

    Welcome back! :D You are here for all the right reasons, and getting healthy before baby will help you with the energy you need for all the late nights. I am getting fit before baby #2, and want to reach a weight of at least 175 before getting pregnant again! I look forward to following along your journey. I know the road seems long, but 6 weeks ago I couldn't fit any of my clothes. I have lost 25 pounds since then and fit back into 6 pairs of jeans today! So big changes in your body might not be as far off as they may seem right now. Best wishes to you and your hubby who will be so happy to see you shining again. emoticon

    A big motivation for me as well is having a baby. It scares me too much until I am healthier. You can do this! Thanks for adding me.
