I could tell you're pregnant because you're getting fat.

Someone actually said those words to me today.  

Thankfully it didn't bother me too much because I have not actually gained any weight, in fact I was down 2 pounds at one point.  But seriously?!?  Who says that?!?  

This is the only picture we've taken so far because honestly, I'm not showing and I don't see the need to have a million shots of me looking like me...  At this point we're at 12 weeks and I feel good except that I'm pretty much wiped by 8pm, the baby is the size of a a peach.  (maybe I'll get Nicole to take a picture tonight because now I'm feeling guilty about not taking them)
As you all know I had already been in a bit of a slump when I got pregnant.  I haven't been to the gym since mid-April and I'm not sure when I'm going back.

My official start weight is 154, or up 20 pounds from my all time low in July 2011.  Obviously I wish I was smaller at the onset of all this but there's nothing I can do about it now.  The doctor said I am in perfectly good shape and shouldn't be worried.  My ultimate goal is to keep my weight under 170 but I also realize it's not entirely under my control.  My plan is to stay as active as possible and eat as healthily as I can.  Not to say I'm not going to indulge but I'd like to keep it from being an everyday occurrence.

I'm so excited to be back to blogging again!  I hope there's still at least a few of you out there reading!

  1. Yay for blogging! You and I can do lots of walking to keep in shape. Also, Rob and I were discussing me joining a gym. I was looking at Tilton. Thoughts?
