Boy, it's been a long time since I was here!
I used to be on this site several years ago, and it was a big encouragement for me losing a little weight, so it was the first thing I thought of when I decided I wanted to find some support!
I've been a little bit derailed lately with my weight loss/maintenance efforts, first with an international move and a new job, about 10 pounds put on while trying to get pregnant, and now another 20 pounds so far actually BEING pregnant.
I'm not trying to lose any weight just yet, but my doctors are recommending I at least slow it down a little. And since getting pregnant, although I kept up being active and pretty healthy for a while, as the months go on I'm getting less and less active and more and more a lazy eater, past the normal extent that one should be while pregnant. I want to live a healthier next couple months for my baby's health as well as my own efforts after the baby is born when I try to get back into shape again.
So my goal is just to cut out all the non-nutritional snacking on chips and ice cream I'm wont to do while working during the day, save those treats for sharing with friends and family. I'm not supposed to do any intense exercise at all, but I want to try to get back into a minimal exercise routine, just walking a slow 5K each day and doing some really light ab exercises, wall push-ups, leg raises, those kinds of things, every day. Then I can get more serious in a couple months when I'm no longer pregnant.
Hello to anyone still here who might remember me, and to everyone else new that I don't know!
