Whatta waste!

Ok, so I was soo excited to be down 105lbs from my heaviest, I worked my butt off for 8 months ( I mean 5-7 hours of working out hard everyday) and stuck to my 17-19 points a day for months, and got my muscley arms and a 4 pack (so close to a 6) and loved standing next to my small husband, and then bam! BAM PEOPLE! Gone! Chubbalubby again. I'm offically up 27lbs from my smallest in October...and up 17 from the beginning of the pregnancy. Ugh! I've been working my butt off too, hip hop abs, and pilates, and sticking to 22-24pts a day (I get more pts because I'm now fatter, and I added 3pts because there's a kid in me) Come on!!!! How do some of you only gain 20-35lbs during pregnancy? SHARE YOUR #$@% SECRET!!!!! Oh, and PS, that's a bikini bottom, not chonies. Not that it's any more modest, but just so you all feel better about NOT seeing me in my underwear.

whats my secret?? I don't have one....I don't want you to hate me for telling you this...but I was so sick that I lost like ten pounds first...then only gained 12 back. But trust me...it not fun. It sounds like you are super healthy and I think that is all that really matters. Just smile and remember that you have something extrodanary growing inside you and that it is all worth it.

Um, no I don't hate you, ok, yes I do. But I lost 10lbs with my first 3 during the first trimester and still packed on 75, then 65, then 55. So, I'm super worried this time, since I've already packed it on.
And yea yea, blah blah, I'm creating a miracle....miracles shouldn't put you up 6 sizes!

You are so cute! I saw you the other day...and you look great! By the way I walked every morning at 6:30 with my mom, did stretches every morning w/ some pregnancy yoga and ate healthy meals and snacks all day. But you are doing great! Be careful with the ab stuff though. I loved the long walks. I feel like that is what really helped.

First of all I love you. And second of all I don't understand pregnancy at all. AT ALL. I eat so much and am having a hard time putting on weight! But any other time in my life I put on weight by just breathing. So I don't get any of it really. P.S now that we are moving to Flag I'll be like an hour from you. You better come see me so we can go out to lunch or somethin!

kristal said...

heck yea, lunch and 17 again! I didn't know you guys were moving there. yay! Next step...Joseph City!

Holy Crap you're huge!!!

Just kidding. I only gained 12 pounds when I was pregnant. But, oh yeah, I started fat.

And thanks for clarifying, I was totally uncomfortable looking at you in your undies.

I don't have any secrets..I was sicker than a dog with Castin and then gained like 50 lbs. Tanner was a blur because I had just got done being pregnant so I was out of luck to begin with with him. I say screw it and eat what you want. There will be tons of time to worry about looking hot in your bikini bottoms after the baby gets here. Although I was seriously depressed after having Castin cause I had myself convinced that I would be able to fit into my pre-preggo jeans right after I had him. Stop laughing..I know I was a naive girl. Just do what you are doing and know that your body is going to do what it needs to do and you can't stop it from doing what it is programmed to do. Damn hormonal bodies!!

Oh Kristal, you still look amazing and take it easy on yourself, you are preg. and that is the coolest thing in the whole world!

This is seriously what you are upset about? *rolling eyes*. You still look great. And I agree with all the advice you've gotten here. Get over it for a few months. You can lose it after you have the kids. If you are going to gain some weight anyways, love the process. And you are creating a miracle!!!!

I'd much rather gain all that weight and be able to eat during pregnancy than to go through what I went through! I don't know if you ever saw that puke out in the parking lot, but, yeah, that was me. I tried to get some fresh air thinking it might help, but it didn't work and I had some kid on a bike stop to watch!!! I agree with the comments of you being healthy and just enjoy the food while you can! :)
