Okay so update since the 1st when I posted last. I have been doing pretty great actually! I keep fluctuating two or so pounds back and forth, but I've definitely not gained anything. I've had a few set backs (I'm still having trouble getting up and eating at night, mostly sweets. But I will say I'm not really "pigging out" so that's progress) but I have met my step goal, done extra exercises, and I've pretty much stayed very close within what my plan was for eating. Dinner is where it's a little tricky when I'm not at home, but last night Cody and I went to Mexican and I ate well there. No pop, have been drinking tons of water. It's been a good deal.
I definitely feel better already, so on that note it's worth it. I'm still looking to try and get down to 245, but if I don't and I at least hold down the fort at where I am until I have the baby I'll be okay with that.
I will say it's about 10x harder to fight cravings right now, lol. It makes me optimistic for after.
I just have to keep reminding myself to give grace. Any progress at this point is progress, and if I mess up and eat a cupcake it will be okay as long as I don't make it a big habit to have one every single day. But I am very very pleased with my progress. Last night I had to sit on the edge of the bed and talk myself out of going back in the kitchen and pigging out. And I succeeded in that battle. I laid back down and went to sleep and was fine.
Weight loss is a bunch of little battles I figured out for myself. It's one step at a time, one milestone at a time.
I've got this!
