Love the baby, hate the weight

38 F

The beginning

Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at 1:33 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
I had my first baby in May. It's been seven months since then, and I've not lost any of the weight. Before my pregnancy, I was on a different diet website. I liked tracking all of my food intake bacsue it forced me to confront how much I was eating, and what foods. There are a lot of things I eat on a daily basis that in my mind are "healthy", and really they are, but in moderation. I tend to give myself free reign of the product when I consider it a health food. Sometime those foods are higher (WAY higher) in calories than you would think.

Back to the baby - I was losing weight consistently before the pregnancy. And even in the beginning of being preggo, I was losing. I gained about 30 pounds at the end, due to the bakery section yelling my name. Man, I could not get enough baked goods. Oreos, cheesecake, doughnuts... it was so yummy, and so bad for me!

I had a long, though successful delivery, and tried breastfeeding. I was kind of counting on that to lose the baby weight. Alas, she would not latch on. I pumped every bottle for the first 6 weeks, and I did lose weight. But then I had to return to work, stopped pumping, and gained like, 20 more pounds.

I'm now working in a stressful job, we had some stressful family stuff happen, and it's just not working. So I'm back on one of these sites to try to control it. I want to be able to play with my daughter. She's just started crawling, and it will only be a matter of time before I'm chasing her around the playground.

I hate the way I look. I hate the way I feel. I want my sex drive back, haha! Here we go... let's do this!
