Weight Update #1

So the other day I posted about my weight and how I was upset. I gained some weight..and I will just put that number out there. 


You see that? 20 lbs..I have gained a toddler or a dachshund. I mean that is ridiculous. I do have some good news though. I have already lost 5lbs. I do have a goal weight and I will get to it. 

I have had a few ask why am I losing weight if I am trying to get pregnant. Well, to be honest, I need to be my healthiest before I bring a child in this world. If I can lose 20 lbs, I will thrilled. I am running more, walking more, and eating healthier. 

It doesn't happen over night and I can not expect results very quickly but over time, it will come off!

  1. I have to agree with being healthier for pregnancy. My second pregnancy was far easier after losing 60lbs and being in much better health than my first! My first was at 28yrs old and overweight and not paying attention to my health...I thought it was an easy pregnancy.
    But then at 35 I had my second pregnancy after my changed lifestyle (lost 60lbs and very active with running) and it was night and day about what I thought was an 'easy' pregnancy.

    It did make a huge difference!

    1. That is good to know. I have heard a few say it is easier to have a baby when you are healthier like that!

  2. I'm trying to loose weight and change my lifestyle in order to get pregnant too :) I know that it won't happen overnight but that in the long run it will be better for me and better for our baby when that happens.

  3. That is awesome, you go girl, you can do it! :) I've been eating better and working out as well and since April I have lost 21 lbs and kept it off. It just takes some patience and commitment.

  4. Good luck!! I am down to trying to lose the last 5 pounds (of 20), it is hard!! And yes, pregnancy and delivery is much easier if you are healthy. I was told delivery is like a hard workout (understatement), and being in shape makes it easier!
