Project BABY

Well, it's about time that I get serious about Project BABY (PB for short). When it all comes down to it - my main goal for right now in my life is to have another baby. Therefore, anything that prevents me from realizing this goal is less than important. I have prayed and I feel that when I reach the weight of 270, then we will stop preventing Pierce baby #2 from coming.

Thanksgiving sort of put a wrench in my maintenance of past weight loss. The lowest I ever got to was 306. I began at 330, so that was a loss of 24 pounds. However, for the past 3 weeks I have been at or around 312 for the most part. Then Thanksgiving hit. I had every intention of staying on SBD last thursday. I even made homemade pudding with splenda for dessert. Too bad it didn't taste good and I weakened and had some pie. Well, a lot of pie. Pie is good. I'm getting off-track here... Anyhow, the scale showed 316 this morning. Not such great news. Yesterday I had predetermined to begin SBD phase #1 today, which I did. It was hard because the kitchen is stocked full of non-SBD food items from our party last night. I managed to do very well on the diet until this evening, when I caved a little. Then I determined that the treats had. to. go. My dear friend, glittersmama, volunteered to take some treats off my hands. Hey, what are friends for, right? I appreciated it, especially since I gave her the rest of the mini-cheesecakes, which were especially causing my downfall. Anyhow, the only thing left is some fudge which I will need to get rid of asap, because it's tempting me as well. (fudge anyone?)

So, I'm going to return to the gym (on-base for now) and tomorrow begin anew to eat 100% SBD. I know that it's hard this time of year to avoid treats, but honestly the most important thing right now is PB and if I don't get serious about losing weight - PB won't ever be realized. Next quarter I'm going to take a YOGA class and I'm very excited about it. I think it will be a great tool in toning up my body. If anyone else is striving to be healthy this holiday season, let me know. I could use some support. :o)

Eating a special diet while others around you don't eat the same is very hard and I empathize 100% with you! But knowing that you are doing it for your child (even one who isn't here yet) is very empowering. We can do it!

I am trying to only have splurgy treats on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years'. All other days treats are strictly prohibited, unless of course, there's a party...then I allow myself to have one or two small things.

My big reward motivation is cute new clothes or a nice lotion or a new project to work on. The less I focus on my prego cravings, the easier it is for me!
