As if we needed one more thing to make us depressed....

How many of you dear ladies are still gaining weight?

I hit the comfort food hard for about 24 hours after we got the news. And then again for about a day after the D&C. Then I went into health mode.

Fruit for breakfast
yogurt for lunch
lean meat and veggies for dinner
no snacking after dinner
hot water with lemon for a snack in between meals
no more coffee (a craving during pregnancy)
ramped up exercise - not always possible since I get really bad migraines.

In the 3 weeks since everything happened, I've gained 4 lbs. In the almost 12 weeks of the pregnancy, I gained about 3.

Talk about adding insult to injury.

Ive also gained a couple pounds since the d&c. Its completly my fault though. My eating habits have been horrible! I bought a lemon cheesecake about a week ago, and within 4 days, it was GONE! Lol but in my defense, dh ate just as much of it as I did. We have been ordering a lot of take out too. Chinese and pizza and sushi. Mostly because I just dont feel like cooking. I have to get back on track!! Bad!!

Honestly, I have two stages of depression...one where I have no appetite and barely eat and one where I eat constantly and not healthy either. Well, I can say that I have the second one...I eat everything in sight and not healthy either. I have basically been living off of cake and ice cream for the last few days. It's like now that I am not taking care of another human being, I just don't care what I do to myself. If I could have alcohol right now and take baths, I'd spend most of the day in a boiling hot tub with alcohol. It's like I just want to punish myself, I don't know

That's how I was after my loss. I lived on cookies and candy bars for about 3 weeks straight.
Now I am at that no appetite phase and I am 4 lbs lighter than I was before I got pregnant. I lost it all and then some since the appetite loss. I'm trying to find a healthy middle ground but either I eat junk or I don't eat at all.

After my 12 week loss I had the 4-5lbs that I had gained during the 3 months of the pregnancy lingering around as a reminder! It sucks!
