So Amy, what are your goals now that you are pregnant? I am not sure what is the best way for me to show you support. Obviously, no more weight loss, lol. I think this works out well though because I'm almost to my goal and about to move onto the maintaining phase of my journey. I am really excited about it, but I keep getting frustrated because I'm not there yet. I don't want to get "almost there". I want to be there. I am really stuck in a plateau and I know what I need to do to get out of it, but it's hard to get myself motivated to do it. I really have been enjoying running so that's not so hard, but everything else isn't giving me that same rush. I think I want something really hardcore to push myself. I looked for classes in my area and just didn't see anything calling out to me. I'm going to keep looking. Anyhow, I hope things are good for you. Are you finding it difficult to keep exercising? Let me know what the best ways are for me to support you. I really want to be an encouragement for you.
I'm so proud of you for being so close to your goal! I know you'll be able to maintain this time. You've come so far that there's no going back now.
My goals are to not gain more than 22 pounds if at all possible, exercise 4-5 (or more) times per week, and watch my food intake. I've been doing pretty well so far. I'm not exercising as hard core as before, but I am still trying to do something. I'm trying to figure out what I can do in the strength training part because what I did yesterday made me feel really dizzy for 30 minutes.
As for support, I am not exactly sure. I guess just keep asking me how I'm doing so I can continue to be accountable.
Hey Amy! How you holding up buddy? I am holding steady here. Not doing anything spectacular, but still doing a little something. How is pregnancy treating you? Are you finding it harder to exercise? I always did. Maybe you could just take on a walking program for now. Anyhow, figured I'd check in on you.
Hey! I have quite a bit of nausea, and the worst is around dinnertime. I can't do ground beef at all. Yuck! I'm having a horrible time with exercise. I've been lucky to do it one or two times per week. I need to pick up with walking more after I'm done teaching summer school in a week. I think I will feel more motivated then.
Honestly, I kind of dread coming here sometimes because I don't feel like I'm being a good captain, but I don't really want to give up my position either. I think when the second trimester starts, or at least I hope, it will be better. I also would still like my position when I try to lose more weight after the baby is born.
It seems like a lot of us on here are lacking motivation. I don't know what the deal is. It's that way right now on another weightloss board of which I am a part. Maybe it slows down during summer???
I keep trying to think on a challenge idea. I wouldn't mind doing one for the board. I've done challenges before, just not in a while. I have been pretty much treading water here. Trying not to gain, instead of focusing on losing. I'd still like to lose some more, but definitely having trouble getting focused on that. I am not sure if Chrissy and I are going to do our race either, not because of me, but her really. I'd like her first shot out at this to be feeling good about herself and we really haven't had proper time to train for it. That and she and I were both sick all week so we didn't run at all. I'm thinking of giving us a full 8 to 10 weeks to work on this and as soon as she can run 3 miles with me then signing up for a 5k. I don't know though. I hope all is going well with you.
