Met a goal I didn't even know was achievable!

Well, my first goal was to lose 10% of my starting weight and run a 5K. I did both by Mother's Day weekend in May. But then I got a little monthly visitor that thanks to PCOS I had not gotten in quite a while. Okay, so maybe my body's in better shape now that I'm taking care of it, controlling those symptoms as well. We went on a vacation and I was totally confident strutting the beach in a (modest) two piece, so I have a great NSV there. Only gained two pounds while on vacation. I assumed it was water weight, because if I was going to have the "visitor" again, it would show up our last day at the beach.

But it didn't come on Friday.
Or Saturday.
Or Sunday.
Or Monday.
But, dawgone it, I felt PMS-y and sore.
So Tuesday, I went to the store and picked up a PT.

For the first time in 11 years of trying to conceive, and 18 months after adopting two precious little girls from Russia, I saw - for the first time ever - a positive Pregnancy Test result!

I always dreamed about posting my MFP success story when I met my fitness and weight loss goals. But this one really threw me for a loop.

Thanks for helping me stick to the plan, guys!

  • What a wonderful NSV!!!!! Congratulations!

    Now, keep logging your food and don't go crazy. That lil bambino only needs 300 more calories a day than what you were currently taking in! I goofed big time with my 1st pregnancy and tried to religiously follow the diet in What to Expect When You're Expecting but it was WAY too many calories for my activity level! I gained 50 lbs with that kiddo and have never lost it all (he is 18 now! LOL)
