Weight Loss Update! (Post #3)

It has been a while since I've had any blog posts. My last post was back in September, 2013. I was still using MyFitnessPal, logging my food, but the holidays was coming up. I was planing on still trying to log, maybe not as much. Still eat at family get togethers but not as much. Andrew and I was doing that, but for some reason my weight wasn't budging I was stuck at 180lbs. 

Well I had noticed that I had, had a missing period by the end of December. I didn't think much of it, I had been feeling tired, and really not hungry much, but that was pretty much it. By the first of January I had lost down to 176.1 pounds! I was excited! 3-4 months I had been at a standstill on my weight loss journey and finally a budge! There was still hope!

My husband and I had been talking about my missed period thinking it could be from were I'm still obese but we wanted to make sure by mid-January we decided to pregnancy tests and then an appointment with the OBGYN. 

Come to find out we were pregnant!! When telling the doctor my initial thought my last period was we thought the baby was going to be due August 20th, 2014. But a few weeks later when doing the ultrasound we found out that our Lil' Miss is due August 1st, 2014! 

I had stopped logging and tried guessing how much calories I was eating which was going good. But after doing some research I was gaining a little too fast. I was at 15lbs. at the doctor, 17.5lbs my Wii fit said. So I started back on MyFitnessPal., but instead of trying to lose weight; 1,450 calorie intake, I switched my option to Maintain, which took my calories to 1,910. 

For two weeks I logged my food until my appointment. I didn't feel deprived or anything. When it was time for my appointment I lost 2 pounds! I had told her what I was doing and she said it was completely fine.

So I'm 29 weeks pregnant and I have gained roughly 13-14 pounds.

Pretty good compared to my first pregnancy with my son. I gained 40-50 pounds with him.

Thank you for reading! After she gets here I'm going to try to hit it hard. 

Hopefully I'll have the motivation.
