HOLY HUGE!!!




Ok, you know how they say the camera adds 10 lbs? Well we got ours on sale because it actually adds 50 lbs. At least that's how I feel looking at these pictures of me. Am I really THAT big? I even tried to suck in! Oh well! Nothing I can do about it now!
I no longer look at the scale when they weigh me at the midwife appointments, but was told yesterday that I hadn't gained any weight since my last appointment two weeks ago. A small victory, to be sure! I think I am probably at around 185 lbs now. YIKES! I know 20 lbs will be gone once I deliver, but it's the other 30 I'm worried about.
After William was born in December of 2007, I went on a very healthy diet in order to lose weight for my friend's wedding in October of 2008. I was nursing (which helped a lot) but I also took up running in the AM before work. I fell in love with running and especially with having that quiet time in the morning to myself before anyone else was up. I definitely plan on getting back into morning exercise once this baby is born, although I will most likely have to hold off on running until spring since it will be too dark in the AM to run this fall/winter.
By the time of the wedding last October, I was at the thinnest I'd been in about 10 years - I'd lost a full 30 lbs since I started the diet and felt GREAT! I hope to, again, lose that 30 lbs plus another 10-20 more this time around. Wish me luck! I'll keep you all posted on how it goes!
