One of the main reasons I am trying to get my weight down is pregnancy. Sure, I want to be healthy... I want to look good for my husband...I want to feel comfortable about my body...I want self confidence... But, my driving force is a potential pregnancy.
My husband and I are going to start trying for kids after Christmas... We've been married for a year and a half. I know some would still consider us "newlyweds" and advise us to enjoy time to ourselves, but we are ready. We both talk about being parents constantly... Being a mom is all I think about. Plus, we want 2-3 children and I'm going to be 29 this year (he will be 32) and we don't want to be having kids too late in life.
First of all, I want a healthy pregnancy and know that weight can cause issues. Second of all, I want to look pregnant...not just fat. I've always been afraid that when I get pregnant people won't be able to tell if I'm really pregnant or just overweight.
My goal weight is 147lbs... I have roughly 50ish pounds to go. I know that I can get this off before Christmas, but it's just starting to hit me how close Christmas really is!
This is my motivation. I think this weekend made me realize that I need to step up my game and get this weight OFF. I mean, it's already the middle of August...What happened to July!? Before I know it, it's going to be Thanksgiving....and then Christmas.
I've been lolly-gaggin' for the last month. I haven't lost what I've wanted... I think it's mostly because I've gotten comfortable. I feel good about the 50lbs I've already lost.... and have slacked off. I'm in a "halfway hump"...I just need to keep reminding myself of my goal and that even though I "feel good"...I'm still overweight!
I am ready to get back with it. This "halfway hump" has got to go!!!
Until next time...
