Not so bad
Nov 21st, 2003 by Anna

Have you ever put something off because you thought you were going to hate doing it? Even though you knew it was the best thing to do, you didn’t think you were going to like doing it so you avoided it? And then when it came time to finally buckle down and do it, it wasn’t so bad afterall? Well, I’m back on program (modified for a healthy pregnancy, of course) and I have to say this is a cinch! I’ve avoided my officemate’s chocolate candy jar and haven’t felt deprived. I’ve eaten healthy, made good choice and JOURNALED ALL OF IT. And it hasn’t been so bad? The longer I put it off, the more I thought it was all too tedious to do and didn’t want to make the effort. The more I put it off the more I thought it was going to be too hard to do. So I finally decided to make the effort and gosh, it’s hardly an effort at all. Now why didn’t I stick with this all along???? Ah, but the past is in the past and I can’t change it – so I move on.

I’m still here.

I feel like I weigh a ton. I haven’t been journaling what I’ve been eating because I’m too embarrassed to see it. I need to start that up again. It didn’t help that today’s little “about your pregnancy” message was about weight gain. I was prepared to be reassured that it’s okay to gain, blah blah blah. Ha! It said that I need to be doubly sure to eat healthy because my body is storing fat. Oh great. I haven’t stepped on a scale in a week. It’s not as bad as it sounds, though. I still only have one chin. I’ve gained a lot in my butt, but the fact that I’m wearing smalls and mediums in maternity clothes is reassuring. And I’m SO excited about getting my body back – eventually. For awhile there, I was nervous that I’d let my eating habits slide so much it would be really hard to get back to eating right. But I was looking at some pictures and saw me pre-pregnancy. That was enough motivation to want to get back there. And just going back to my web site with the progress photos… I really don’t want to look like I did three years ago when I started Weight Watchers. Yuck! I don’t have to look far for motivation, that’s for sure!
