A good place

My weight is still on my mind, but I have many other things on my mind right now. In 5 weeks I will be graduating with my Bachelors degree in psychology. It will be the end of a long 5+ years. In 4-5 months I will be welcoming a new baby girl into my family. Yes, I'm pregnant. My weight is on my mind, but the health of my body and my baby is a much higher priority. I am currently 20 weeks pregnant and I have not gained any weight. I started my pregnancy around the same weight I am now. I hope to gain a healthy amount and be able to lose the weight soon after the baby is born. I will return after school and probably closer to baby day :) I'd really like to have a change to keep this more up to date. Balancing work, school and home is a lot. I hope that minus school I will have more free time. Thanks for following!

One Small Year

It has been a full year since my surgery. The ups and downs were there. My current weight is 227 pounds. I'm not where I want to be, but I'm happy to be where I'm at. It fells great to know that I've worked hard and have come to this point.

Why am I still the same weight I was 6 months ago though? That answer is my own stubborn self. Around 6 months in I stopped losing weight. I was eating great and exercising. My weight wouldn't budge. I spent 3 months like that. Then I got stupid and decided to eat whatever I wanted since I wasn't losing weight eating all the good healthy stuff. I didn't exactly gain weight. But over the course of the past 3 months my weight had crept up to 235. I had a moment of, "WTF am I doing?" and decided to get back on track.

Since being back on track I have come back down to the plateau weight I was stuck at 6 months ago. I know that no matter what, I must stick with it. I can't plateau forever. Because I want to lead a healthy life, I have to keep going. Even if I don't lose another pound I know that I am giving it 100% and my body will benefit. No more junk food to up my calories. I am sticking to eating lots more of the healthy foods to up the calorie count.

I want to thank everyone that has been there for support in this last year. All my friends and family have helped me though some rough times. I know I will succeed. I refuse to the percent that gains it all and more back within the second year. This time next year I hope to be exactly where I am or below.
