my journey

I have been talking a lot about weight loss and tip but I haven't shared my journey with you in a while. I have done a really good job about keeping the weight off over the past year but truthfully I haven't done a great job at losing any additional weight. We have been trying for a baby and it is a hard time to try and lose weight. There is the few day ttc window and then the two weeks of waiting. Every month it feels like your life is put on hold just in case this is the month. The last thing I wanted to add on top of that is counting points and worrying about what you are eating. Basically I have counted points about 1-3 days a week. Every month when I discover I am not pregnant I am somewhat relieved because I selfishly don't want this to be my pre pregnancy weight. I have determined this though... I eat 10 times better when I am counting points. If we are pregnant counting points is good because I am constantly keeping my blood sugar regular and eating real foods not fast food.
There's the excuse here's the facts, I have gained about 6 lbs recently over what I consider my lowest recent weight, 150. Luckily in the week and a half since discovering this I have lost three of these lbs! I try and get in 3,000 to 3,500 cal of workout every week and follow my points 5- 6 days a week. Some weeks it is going to be less than that but that's ok. (3,500 cal is equal to 1 lb.) Maybe dropping some more weight will be just what we need to finally get pregnant and if not then it will have other benefits.
