Can I whine about the recent direction of my weekly weigh-in?
The orange dot marks the beginning of my last period, and of course it was a while before I realized there was a reason I needed to stop trying to lose weight.
And don't get me wrong, I'm so happy to finally be pregnant, but I was only 12 pounds away from no longer being obese! I've been doing so well for over a year (as you can see!), and I'm sure part of that was the reason I was finally able to get pregnant.
And I feel like I keep going on and on about this, but while I'm still tracking my food and getting exercise in, I'm afraid I'll have trouble getting back on track once the baby arrives. I really have no reason to think otherwise since I've been doing great so far; I guess I keep thinking of my past where I'd be doing well and something would inevitably get me off track. I'd reached my very lowest weight ever earlier this year and am still smaller than I was in high school, but it's painful watching the scale go back up, even though it's temporary and for a very worthy cause.
