I've always been a "big girl" and I know that is no excuse for lack of concern for my health.
It never really mattered to me (I've always been confident with myself) until I had my daughter almost 2 years ago. When I got pregnant I weighed about 220 lbs. When I delivered I was about 275 lbs. Six weeks post partum I had lost half the weight. Sadly though, Ive gained it ALL back! I lack the motivation for some reason. I know this is NOT a healthy lifestyle, and I know if I dont change my ways soon then I may miss out on some of the important things in life. Today I weigh close to what I did when I was 40 weeks pregnant! Not something I am proud of!!
My husband wants to have another baby, and I would love to be a mother all over again, but I am terrified of getting pregnant now, at this weight. It wouldn't be healthy for me or my baby.
So this is why I am starting this today. I want another baby, and I want to be healthy and happy to see my children grow!
