Not as Selfless as I Thought

Day 138

So last week I vowed to lose 5 pounds to become a better fertility weight. I left that post feeling slightly nervous but mostly happy that I had the determination to actually lose some weight.

Now, I know 5 pounds seems like nothing, but it is a big deal!

This is the same 5 of 12 pounds I have gained in the two years I have been married. 2 YEARS!

I think my real fear is that if I can’t lose these pounds will I be stuck with baby weight 2 YEARS after my first baby?

So after admitting to myself that this weight loss isn’t entirely me being a selfless mother-to-be-to-be….I am still motivated!

I re-joined Weight Watchers today. Tried to follow along with  their new PointsPlus system…we will see.

And a little inspiration…My bloggy friend, Jennifer, told me when she started working out and not being so “lets get preggers” driven, she felt better AND soon had bun in the oven!

  1. okay so how is the 5 lb. weight loss going? I’m now on a no carb kick, trying to detox my body so to speak, and stop this awful food addiction I have. It’s only been day 3 for me and I’m dying for a cookie. ugh, shoot me now….I’ve got almost 2 weeks more to go.

  2. Oh Girl! I did low carbs and I prayed for the rapture. It was horrible…and on top of it I didn’t lose any freaking weight!
    I hope this goes sooo much better for you. If you can make it through week one, maybe it will get better. My friend lost 25 pounds in 6 weeks.
    I re-joined weight watchers online. Its so easy, I lost 2 pounds since my post. THEN went to MI over the weekend for a funeral and all was lost. I gained a pound this week. The hardest part for me is staying away from sugar treats and forcing myself to workout.

    Hang in there!
