It's a sad, sad day when you forget you even have a blog dedicated to losing weight.
I got an update on Facebook saying someone had "liked" the Skinny Jeans Facebook page and I was like, "Wha?!" (say that like the minion on Despicable Me)
I seriously thought I deleted this blog for some reason. I think it was more of the "out of sight, out of mind" that made me forget about it.
Here's an update on me.
I had a baby in February and gained...wait for it...50+ pounds during my pregnancy. I was 2 points away from having gestational diabetes (which is scary and probably why my baby was so big two weeks early!). I had good intentions for eating healthy during my pregnancy as I was terrified of gaining weight. I was already overweight when I got pregnant and the thought of having more weight to lose was overwhelming. But alas, I started eating whatever I wanted while I was pregnant and the pounds crept on.
Another contributing factor to the weight gain was the fact that I developed preeclampsia. I was retaining so much water & was so so swollen. But honestly, that could have only added a few pounds.
Anyway, to make a long story short, I had my baby 2 weeks early (he was 9 pounds - you can read more about that on my personal blog) and by 12 weeks, I was down to my pre-baby weight. I was eating less, but not really exercising (I was too freaked out to take my baby outside in the cold) but I was nursing which I think helped a lot.
And now I am stuck at a weight that I've been for the past 3 years.
I'm starting over, once again. Something has got to click this time and I've got to keep at it.
So if anyone out there is still reading this blog, please share your advice. What has worked for you? What keeps you motivated? How did you get to the point where it "just clicked"?
Hope you stay with me through this!
