Starting all over again...

Thursday, April 13, 2017

Hi! Does this thing even work anymore?? Haha.
I can't believe it's been SO long since I've been on here. Almost six years! I'm in serious need of a lifestyle overhaul again, so here I am!

In order to start the change, I started WW on my 32nd birthday three weeks ago. But the biggest game-changer I know for myself was writing these blogs and having the support of my spark friends. So I'm here! I REALLY desperately need an accountability buddy, if anyone's interested!

Just a quick update over the past six years [because, let's be real: now that I have TWO kids and a full-time job, I have VERY little time for myself]:

emoticon 1. My biggest update: I got pregnant, three times.
My first son was born in June 2012, my second was a late miscarriage (I was 19 weeks pregnant), and my second son was born in July 2016.

emoticon 2. I've been through a lot emotionally. The difficulties of new parenthood, postpartum depression, losing a baby, and then having two... it's a lot. And I'm still trying to figure out how people do this whole parenting thing without going crazy!

emoticon 3. I have a ton to be grateful for.

Alright friends, let's do this thing!

    Welcome back! I also just returned after years away (but I'm 26 weeks pregnant so my Sparkgoals are limited to drinking lots of water and getting some activity every week)

    Rereading "The Spark" (I have the audio book and listened at work) inspired me to return, but before that it was the relief of being able to stomach vegetables and oatmeal again (curse you, first trimester!) I want to live a healthy lifestyle for my babe!

    What inspired you to join Weight Watchers and come back?

    Thank you for sharing your experience with all three of your babies. The more we share our stories, the less lonely we will all feel. Welcome back and best on your journey!
