40 Weeks for Unique- week 3 almost 4

Saturday, October 29, 2016

The way I see it, I have sacrificed my body 3 times to carry new life and each time I have grown as much as the life growing inside of me. Each pregnancy was a journey, at the end not only did I have a new baby, but I also had a new appreciation for my own strength. I always made sure to take my vitamins, not drink soda, eat lunch meat, limited sweets, and always had plenty of water. I wanted my children to have the best chance possible. So with my weight loss and my own health, I asked myself why can't I give myself 40 weeks, 40 weeks to improve my physical and mental health. Rebuild my self esteem and find that appreciation for my resolve again... The answer was I could, therefore I am.

40 weeks for Unique started the day after my last appointment with my GI Doctor (10/4/2016)
my "due date" is July 11th 2017.

I am already 3 weeks in. I have so far lost at least 10lbs, I had to hide my scale. While I want to lose weight, I do not want that to be my focus.

My next doctors appointment is December 1st 2016, by that time I hope to have lost 16lbs and gotten my blood pressure down considerably.

40 weeks for Unique includes:

Drinking a gallon of water a day
Eating between 1200-1600 calories a day
Tracking daily
Walking at minimum 5k steps
Drinking rarely- occasions (Bdays, holidays)

Blogging helped me in the past so I will now add it to my list...
at least monthly blogging

    Thanks. I'm not expecting it's an analogy. No more babies for me 😊

    When I had my kids we were allowed to gain only 20 pounds during pregnancy or the doc would yell at us. It can be done, I did it twice (the first time I gained 45 pounds sending me to WW) while keeping the baby and you perfectly healthy. It's no harder to limit your gain than to lose it after the baby is born.
