Still hanging in there

Yesterday got interesting trying to stay strong - all of us had a stomach bug. I still managed to take a walk (not terribly brisk), and kept track of what I ate (not the most nutritious, but within the right calorie range).
Today I found another large motivating factor for losing weight. My daughter was born preterm. We want another, but I'm still not quite ready. Which is good, because there are two risk factors for having another preterm baby - the fact that I already had one (can't change that, though if I could I would), and obesity. Obesity I can fix. Not overnight, it's a process, but it's a process I can work on. If going into a second pregnancy I had no outstanding risk factors, I'd be less worried. And less worry is good when you're pregnant! And isn't that more important that one single day event, like I usually use for motivation? Hopefully the combination of all my reasons will help keep me strong!
