Almost 2 years later...

Friday, January 04, 2013

Wow, I can't believe it's been almost 2 years since I last updated. So much has changed in my life. I will give a brief update in a nutshell. The man I met was indeed the love of my life. We got married June 4, 2011. I had a job for a year but got laid off when I was 8 1/2 months pregnant. I am going to go back to school starting this quarter for a certificate in medical coding/billing, I'm very excited! We had a little baby girl together on September 10th, 2012. I have in general maintained my healthy eating approach with some slip ups, usually during the holidays and high stress times. During my pregnancy I only gained 5lbs, which I am very happy about! I have lost some weight after pregnancy (though I haven't been "dieting" so to speak, was actually bad through the holidays, yay breastfeeding) and now I'm down to about 22lbs above my very lowest weight, and 15lbs above where I left off last here. It might go up a lbs or two, I'm ashamed to admit but we are having one last hurrah this weekend, getting rid of the junk in the house, and starting the way of life again on Monday. The first 2 weeks are rough, I remember that, it starts slowly getting easier. This time we have an exercise bike at our house! I plan to take walks too when we can (darn the cold weather). In a nutshell that's where I'm at. There have been ups and downs in my life for sure, but things are looking up again for us. :) Here's to a great year, 2013!!
