Hello again! I have been MIA, so I hope you are all doing well with your weight loss. I have a good excuse for being MIA. I am 7 weeks pregnant!! Yes, right when I was about to re-dedicate myself to my weight loss, I discovered I was pregnant, so no weight loss for awhile. I do, however, want to continue eating healthy and doing light work outs so that I do not gain a lot of weight. I was considered a tad overweight when I got pregnant - my BMI was 25.2 I think and anything over 25 is overweight - so I am trying not to gain much, if any, during my first trimester. I still loosely follow the WW (original) plan but have added about 6 points into my day. I have been incredibly exhausted so I didn't work out much at all the first few weeks. I just started walking outside with our dog b/c the weather has been so nice since Saturday and will continue to be nice through the next week and hopefully beyond.

We went for our first ultrasound on Tuesday - a little earlier than usual b/c of my previous miscarriage in September. I was very nervous but we ended up seeing the fluttering heartbeat (at 120bpm) and the baby measured exactly where it was supposed to! YAH! We are not out of the woods yet, but my DH immediately posted the photo and video on Facebook - even though we hadn't officially decided to...grrr - so he forced my hand and we went ahead and announced. I can't hold it against him to much because he was bursting with excitement, he can't keep a secret to save his life, and its better than last time when he announced as soon as I got a positive pregnancy test! We go back in 3 weeks (when I am 10 weeks) for another ultrasound, nurse's history and my first official OB appt!

Anyway, I am so glad this thread is hopping again and I will stop by occasionally to check in. I'll be back full force in October after I have the baby! Have a great day, everyone!

Contratulations Renee!

So, I am +.4 this week. I guess even a little bit of chocolate can throw you off. I know I messed up a few times this week but I have been kicking butt at exercising and it's been getting a lot easier so I'm okay with this. Onto another week!

Up .7. Just couldnt get into the swing of things this week. It just doesn't seem like I can possibly work out enough to burn off the amount of chocolate I ate this week. I don't expect to see a lower number next week, since we're cruising, but once I get vacation-birthday out of the way, I'll be back on the wagon.

So I started a new exercise program and I gained 2 pounds! I know it's muscle because I have been eating well but its so discouraging I cried on the scale this morning..It's so discouraging when you are trying so hard and that happens to you

Sorry, gaining when you have done everything right is the pits. I'm no exercise expert but I do read and pretend I am going to be...I've heard that sometimes your muscles "hold on" to things (water? fat?) when you initially begin exercising (or doing a new program) so there may be a gain. Could that be it? Of course, I don't know how long you've been doing the new program, but I'm sure it will all even out in the end.

Peeps, my weekend, aka FoodFest 2011, was nice. Gotta love 3-day weekends. Unfortunately it seemed to revolve around food. I'm 5 weeks from my trip and have been stalled out. I have all my meals planned for today, brought a healthy lunch and a few snacks. My true test will be this evening when I'm driving home, starving. I will not stop anywhere for take out or naughty snacks - I've got plenty of yummy, better for me things at home!
