Is this it? Let's be real.

For the last week, the scale hasn't moved. I'm staying right around 239, and I'm afraid this might mean that my weight loss/baby weight gain has leveled off. I was hoping to lose a little bit more and fit well into my 18's, but I'm not sure it's going to happen. I'm trying not to be discouraged about it, and I really need to start exercising--it also could just be a natural weight plateau. I do think I ought to update my ticker though--I was so close to my next mini-goal of 235! Arrrrrgh. Don't worry, I'm not just going to throw in the towel. I also must admit that I haven't made the best choices this week food-wise.

I'm also 12 and half weeks along now--this first trimester has flown by! I guess I should at least be happy that I lost 10 pounds during these first weeks rather than gained, but I'm a little sad that it's probably going to be a long time until I actually look pregnant rather than just fatter. Luckily I'm tall (5'9"), so I have that going for me. The lower part of my belly does feel harder though, so I think if I could get all this flab removed I might actually look a little pregnant :)

Sigh. Just needed to get this worked out of my brain. Thanks for listening.

Don't get discouraged, it is all for a good cause! no better reason to start gaining weight! just don't give up. just because the loss may slow/stop doesn't mean you can't improve your health. step up the exercise, but nothing too strenuous, and you'll feel better, have an easier delivery, and a healthier baby, not to mention build your habits for after baby. most importantly, try to enjoy this time in your life, it truly is a magical time!

I agree with Justawallflower...pregnancy is a great time to get even healthier...I was an older mother so I was really cautious about diet/exercise. I gained 17 lbs for each pregnancy and after delivery I had actually lost a healthful way. My OB probably said the increased metabolism of the preg, with the exercise probably made me a healthier mom and decreased my fat content. I hope you have a healthy and enjoyable pregnancy...seems like its been very healthy so far. said...

I'm with the others, don't focus on the weight anymore - just focus on your (and the baby's) health. Work on getting into good and healthful habits and that can only help the both of you for the rest of your lives.

I've nominated you for an award, come see.
