This is my fifth healthy baby and seventh pregnancy, if there is one thing I have learned it is how not in control I am when it comes to my body's processes and needs. Just give the sufficient raw material and let the rest take care of itself.
Certainly nutrition is vital. I'm just finding that I can take in the raw materials at a pace that both meets our needs and does not deposit extra adipose tissue. I am already carrying something like 175,000 calories around with me!

The fetus only needs an extra 300 calories a day. Those who are mindfully following the newest recommendations make certain that those take the form of protein, healthy fat and colorful produce. It is working, and I am pleased.
For the first time in my life, I believe that I can be slender, fit and toned. I always just thought that didn't apply to me. Why?

Goal 1: No longer obese - 185lbs: Reached 12/19/14!
Goal 2: Normal BMI - 154lbs
Final Goal: 135lbs
