Can I join the club?!?!
Hi there! I've been lurking around this site for some time now but haven't posted much until recently. I find that sometimes I "lose" myself in all the different threads! I found this one and thought it would be a good one to camp out in on a regular basis. I NEED to lose 100 pounds! I gained 100 pounds (yes, you read that right) during my pregnancy. I'm embarrassed to say so, but I did. I started my pregnancy at 185 and the day after I gave birth (don't ask what posessed me to step on a scale at that point) I weight 286. It was horrifying. My daughter just turned 3 years old and I am still weighing in the 230's. It's so depressing! I'd love to get down below 200 again as it was a number I never saw before pregnancy and, once I go below it, I hope to never see it again! My biggest concern and, frankly, excuse has been..."Well, I want to have another baby so I just won't worry about it until after the second one." Well, I found out I was pregnant a few months ago and was so nervous about gaining weight again...SO nervous. Unfortunately, 10 weeks in I miscarried. I am bummed about it and we are still "trying" but I see this as an opportunity now. Why wait? Why not work on it now and if I get pregnant, I get pregnant, you know? I've been holding on to the pregnancy thing as an excuse for too long and now I need to just press forward, full steam ahead until I'm able to get pregnant again and then deal with it at that time. It's crazy how I can come up with an excuse not to lose weight. Just crazy. NO MORE EXCUSES! My life is full of them and I am sick of it!
Thanks for letting me "vent" a little and I look forward to watching ALL of us lose that 100 pounds!
