Sunday Skinny – Mom Challenge

I am so OVER Sunday skinny. I am so over thinking about my weight, thinking about what I am eating, thinking about how my clothes fit and just having this issue take up so much of my life. Many women with eating disorders have had lifelong struggles, or at the very least since puberty. I used to eat well, I would eat what I wanted, and my eating had nothing to do with my emotions. Seven years ago that all changed and I have been struggling with my weight ever since.

Mr. Rogue and my conversations about starting to try for baby number two are getting more serious. I am feeling better emotionally, I am feeling more like me physically but I am dealing with a constant war going on between waiting to get pregnant and starting to try right away. Part of my reservations have to deal with the 15 pounds I am still carrying around from pregnancy. I lost almost all my pregnancy weight by four months postpartum but then I injured my feet working out and slowly gained it back. Right now I would love to lose weight before getting pregnant and gaining even more. However I also am worrying about waiting too long. I want at least one more baby and I would love two or three more. Given my age I gotta get hopping. My biological clock is TICKING.

I figured that it took several months to get pregnant last time, so I may as well do both; try to get pregnant as well as try and lose some weight. With my planters faciitis I have to be careful, but I am back at trying to eat better and trying to get more active which means a revitalization of my Sunday Skinny. Writing about my struggles and my successes keeps me focused and also is very therapeutic. I am not doing anything strict, just trying to ease slowly into making healthier choices.

Wish me luck again.

All you can do is eat right . . . check, and let the chips fall where they may. You have the genes on both sides of the family against you, so that makes it doubly difficult. Just do what you can, and don't sweat the bullets.
