A Bit of an Update and some goals

Just wanted to say, "I'm still here!"
I have completely neglected this blog the last several months. I knew my weight was going to keep going up, but when it was going up too fast I just was too chicken to blog about it. I just checked a pregnancy weight gain chart and realized I have already gained more than I should for the entire pregnancy, even though I am only 34 weeks. My doctor however, does say my weight gain is acceptable. I have gained 29 pounds. I guess it could be worse.
My walks are non existent. And will continue to be non existent seeing as the snow has finally arrived and I don't want to risk falling at 34 weeks pregnant. The balance board no longer works (we just tried it with new batteries). I am addicted to chocolate and peanut butter, preferably ice cream. And I have to eat before bed, depending upon how late I stay up.
I am trying to eat my salads again. At the beginning of the pregnancy and until recently I just couldn't down more than a little bit, not even a side salad size. And I had been used to eat a big plate full of salad before I got pregnant! For some reason I have no problem scarfing down starchy foods though. I have 4.5 weeks to improve my eating habits, to get out of this rut, so that after the baby is born on Feb 17 I can flow straight back into the good habits I had 9 months ago. I will not be able to exercise for a while. I am having a c-section. But I will try my hardest to limit the sugary snacks.
I was thrilled to find out Plus Size Bloggers is starting a new challenge a few days after I give birth. Perfect timing. Not sure how it will work, but I will make it my goal to do all I can.


  1. When it is chilly I walk in the mall to get some exercise - I am good at window shopping so I don't end up doing much shopping which helps! ;)

  2. It takes a lot of courage to lose weight and TALK ABOUT IT, so hats off to ya. I can So relate and thanks so much for stopping by and commenting on my blog :) I share lots of healthy recipes and workout ideas, so keep stopping by from time to time and maybe I can help offer some motivation! We all need it, right?! Awesome for you to blog about your weight loss efforts! I've always said, losing weight is one of THE hardest things to do...it's an everyday struggle, for life!
