Well, I think it's safe to say that I need to restrict a little bit with my eating habits.
Yes, I am pregnant but I have no boundaries. I mean look at this. This is what I feel like snacking on!
When I'm not pregnant, I wouldn't DREAM of eating processed icing out of a jar! GROSS!!!!!
When I'm not pregnant I have no problem eating clean and sticking to the program but once I'm pregnant I figure, "oh who cares, I'm pregnant, I can eat whatever I want!"
Hence a 12 pound weight gain in 15 weeks. I know 12 pounds isn't THAT much but I can feel it spiraling out of control and will be 50 in no time flat!!!!
I'm not having it. It mainly bothers me when I run. I feel SO heavy and it hurts. The chub on the back of my arms actually flaps around along with my thighs and love handles.
Do you have any idea how hard it is to lug 12 extra pounds around when your trying to run 5 or 10 miles.
IT SUCKS!!!!! and I'm doing it and I hate it!!!
I totally have issues with food and have very little self control in CERTAIN situations, one of them being pregnancy. NOT PREGNANT. NO PROBLEM!
Everyone tells you, you should just eat what you want because your eating for two! WRONG!!!! Just because your pregnant doesn't give you the right to pig out on everything in sight.
Yes, I agree, you need to eat more than you were eating before you were pregnant and you need to make sure your getting plenty of all the food groups. OF COURSE but you don't need to eat icing out of the jar, ice cream every night and chocolate cake for a snack.
I can preach this because I weighed 245 pounds at one point and guess what I have never been so miserable in my entire life and I have never had to work SO hard to get thin again. Here'show I did it in case you've never read it! Doesn't even look like me does it?
I got that way because I thought I should be "eating for two" NOOOOOOOOO BIG MISTAKE!! IN fact you should be eating ONLY 300 extra calories a day. That's it.NO MORE!!! That is a granola bar people, not a pint of ice cream!!!!
PROOF OF MY MISERY!!!!!! RIGHT HERE!!!!
AND RIGHT HERE!!!!!!
DOESN'T LOOK LIKE FUN DOES IT?????
WELL IT'S NOT!!!!!!
Sure it's fun while it lasts but then the baby comes out and doesn't weigh 100 pounds and your the one left to deal with it while feeling miserable, uncomfortable, in pain, unattractive, and just plain miserable.
SO I need a game plan!!!!! Good thing it's not too late.
I have to be able to feel like I can "indulge" a little because I'm pregnant or I'll be miserable so I just need to pick a handful of indulgence snacks and keep them handy. I'm thinking,
* oatmeal with honey and fruit
* LOTS and LOTS of fruit and berries
* Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches
*cereal with almond milk
Have any other healthy snack suggestions for me to stay healthy while pregnant????
