Well, to tell you the truth I’m still on my journey to my goal but I’ve had to take a small break from serious weightloss because I’m currently pregnant, due in April. I plan to get back on the horse afterward and some things that help me is surrounding yourself with positive and motivated people. It also helps a ton to have a meal plan. Know what your meals are gonna be for the following day and have them ready. Another big thing for me was switching up my workouts. I would last about a week doing one exclusive workout (treadmill, DVD, hiking, etc) before I’d get bored so doing a different workout everyday really kept me motivated. Hope this helps!
For those who may not know, my whole weight loss journey was motivated by the fact my husband and I were having trouble getting pregnant with our 2nd child.
Well, after a year+ of trying, today I got my BFP (big fat positive for the rest of you). We’re ecstatic! This however does not mean I’m taking a break from exercising. I still plan to get on my treadmill and although my goal won’t exactly be weight loss, it will be to have a much healthier pregnancy than my first. I’m very excited and a little scared. Those reading this are the only ones who know. I just had to tell someone!
As a person who’s always been on the heavier side, I’ve always been on guard when it comes to kids. Especially now that I’m an adult. You just never know what they’re gonna say and when they do, it’s usually an unfiltered comment straight to your heart.
Well, today I experienced one of those comments, and it was from our own 3 year old child. We’ve been working on comparisons with her (loud/quiet, hard/soft, etc). Well, she was sitting on my lap when she pointed to me and said “Big!” Then pointed to my husband and said “Small!”
As an overweight person, the last thing you want is for your children to see you how the rest of the world does. Before, I was simply mommy; a face she recognized and loved. Period. Now, she’s learning and realizing there’s more to mommy. About 60lbs more!
Needless to say today is a downer day. It wasn’t a complete heart wrenching, crawl under the covers and cry kinda comment but it hurt just the same. Not the words, just the idea that she sees me as “big” and with time, if I don’t get it under control, she might look at me with shame or embarrassment. And that kills me.
This is the official ‘i care’ symbol. This is how it works:
Basically you reblog this, and your followers know that you care and that they can message you about anything anon or not and you will reply back or at least look at their message. If you care about your followers please reblog.
I care about anyone who supports and appreciates what I’m doing.

My husband and I just passed the 1 year mark of TTC. That’s “trying to conceive” for the rest of you.
We were able to get pregnant with our first right away. Although I was 40 pounds lighter then. I never thought we’d ever have to TRY to get pregnant.
This past year has been emotional for me, especially with everyone around me getting pregnant. The only thing keeping me from obsessing about not being pregnant is seeing our 3 year old. If we never get pregnant again at least we have her. At least we were fortunate enough to experience pregnancy and the joys of an infant once.
I think I need to post, all around the house, the pictures I took of the positive pregnancy tests and the ultrasound pictures and the pictures of our daughters birth with a big banner above it all that says “do it for the baby you have yet to conceive.” Wouldn’t that be a sight?Maybe that would get my ass on the treadmill everyday!
