Guys, I don't know what we've been working our asses off for. I have found the perfect diet! Just get pregnant! You're all skeptical, I see that. Just hear me out.
All week I've been tossing my cooking like it's my job (as an impending mother, I guess it IS my job). I have no desire for the vast majority of most foods. Either I turn my nose up at it all or I throw up in my mouth a little just thinking about it. What I do consume during the day has a pretty decent chance of coming back up. Saltines and gingerale- this has been my lunches all week. Of course, this only works from the morning until around 3:00 or 4:00 in the afternoon. After that I'm actually good to go food wise, if I can find something to interest me that is.
I do find myself craving fruits. Pineapple, watermelon, berries- I happily throw down on all of these. Along with Reese Peanut Butter Cup Cereal. So I mean, there's that. I have a pineapple at home just waiting for the hubby to cut up for me and I can't wait to get my hands on that bad boy tonight.
I know that this is a weight loss blog and I'm going to be gaining about 15 pounds with the baby. Average sized women are supposed to gain more than that, but since I'm already overweight I'm supposed to gain less. I, honestly, am not too concerned with what I gain. I don't want to be a giant whale, but I want a healthy baby, so I'm going to do whatever I have to do to ensure that. I know this means in the new year (2013 new year that is) I'm going to be throwing down for reals on the diet front. So far this year, I've lost close to 8 pounds. So I'll be gaining double that back. And quite possibly more.
In the mean time, I'm going to be focusing on eating healthy and battling food cravings and some exercises that are good for expecting ladies. It's going to be quite the journey and I'm super excited to be on it.
