Week #1 Weigh-In

Tina and I both still have our birth stories to write about Moon Pie’s entry into our family. Those will be coming soon, but for today, I wanted to share my weight.

I am presenting my weight without judgment. In the weeks leading up to his birth and the two weeks AFTER his birth, my eating and exercise plans went straight out the window. Some aspects of his birth were a bit stressful, and I found myself eating for comfort on a few occasions. And after he was born and I found myself sleep deprived, I ended up eating a bit more than I might have otherwise.

So it’s not pretty. The weight is up. But it is what it is, and I’ve got this handsome little face to encourage me to keep losing weight. After all, I have to make sure I’m around long enough to take care of him.

Week #1
Date: October 6, 2012
Weight: 368.2
Change from Highest: -34.6 pounds

Weight is definitely up. A bunch. As in twentyish pounds over the last two months.

I often feel like a weight loss blogger failure, because my weight is all over the place. And yet, even though I have dabbled in it, I can’t make the shift away to just a fitness blogger, because I HAVE to lose weight, not just increase my fitness. I’m rebranding my weight loss to Week #1.

I have to get this ship going in the right direction.

I’m working on it, from a mental health standpoint.

Have I ever shared here that I used to work in mental health? I’ve got a degree in Psychology, more professional development trainings in counseling and mental health than I can count, and yet… when it comes to losing weight myself… I’m often a bit of a train wreck. Well, no longer. I am going to use the strategies that I have used with my clients in the past on myself.

I can do this.

I will do this.

I have to do this, because it’s not just about me anymore.

I have a family I have to protect.

    Congrats again on that beautiful baby, Jeremy!

    Seems as if a bunch of bloggers are recommitting this week. I am one of them. New blog, new chapter. I do feel like a weight loss blogger failure more times than not. BUT, I want to change and I am mentally ready to make that change. It’s worth it! We are worth it! Our families are worth it!

      Erin, I’m so glad you are coming back to blogging! You are right – our families are worth it. I just have to remember that when I’m debating if I want to hit the fast food drive-thru.

    I feel like a new person at the moment, with fresh motivation, so I’m also looking forward to losing some weight in the weeks to come.

    Moon Pie is just gorgeous! You are so blessed!

      Hanlie, we definitely feel blessed, and thank you. We certainly think he’s a handsome little guy. 🙂

      Feeling like a new person is such a powerful gift; we just need to plan to keep that in mind as we push through this journey, motivation or not.
