I thought I would do a post on how my weight is doing. If you don't already know I am pregnant, I am currently 21+1 weeks pregnant so over half way there now. I have gained a total of 8lbs so far which means I have now lost a total of 63lbs which is 4 stone 7lbs. I am hoping that I don't gain too much more, however, I do know that the baby is now having a rapid growth spurt and to add to that I will be in the last trimester from the middle of July my weight gain isn't going to be as low as I wanted it to be.
I cannot blame this on the baby, my eating has been terrible and it has worried me how some days I can slip right back into my old habits that I took 14 months trying to get rid of. I do have my good days where my food intake is healthy and regulated but other days it is not even close to being good. I have to keep reminding myself that I am a different person to the one who started to lose weigh in January 2011, I can lose weight and I can lose it successfully and I am sure with the support I get from others, both in my personal life and my online life I would have been able to go on and lose more this year if I hadn't of got pregnant. I am completely OK with this as having a baby is the best thing ever and it's just happening a year before I planned. But when my baby gets here in October (please keep your fingers crossed it doesn't come on my birthday!) I will have another reason to add to the long list of reasons to lose weight and keep it off.
So instead of being consumed by the fact I am putting on weight I am going to try my best to eat well, especially as the baby can now taste what I am eating through the amniotic fluid and know that what I gain will be gone and that the support of those I have relied on will be there to support the rest of my weight loss.
