Day 1 - Again?

Wednesday, July 03, 2019

I'm sitting here shocked that I am calling this "Day 1" - again.

I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl almost 6 months ago (my 3rd and final baby) after a HORRIBLE pregnancy in medical terms... almost exclusively caused by being overweight. During the pregnancy I kept saying, "As soon as this baby is out, I'm getting BACK ON TRACK!"

Yet here I am... 5 days shy of this little girl turning 6 months... and I haven't done much to further that goal.

I'm 218 lbs... the day I gave birth I was 223... and the first time I weighed myself after delivering (2 weeks postpartum) I was 199.

HOW did I gain 19 lbs BACK from that point?

I'm disgusted about it. But I'm hoping by putting it into words I will never let this happen again.

THIS is my day 1. FOR THE LAST TIME.

    The number of 'day 1' is not important. It is that you still want a day 1. Take it one day one decision at a time. Set one goal for the week for some change; such as cutting out soda and adding water, journalling every day your exercise or food. There are tools and articles here on SP that can assist you in these goals. And by the way, welcome back! emoticon

    Oh, I have done multiple “day ones” as well! Look at it like all of them counted, all those days were healthy days. You will have more healthy days. Getting through a medically complicated pregnancy is tough and takes time to recover. Congrats on your baby girl and to more healthy days!
