Starting Over, Getting Back On Track

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

So, while I was pregnant, all 9 months, I was so determined to get back on track right after Riley was born... And now, here she is 3 months old and I'm not on track. I keep over eating or eating things that aren't good for me, and I hate it. I'm breast feeding Riley and I know that no matter what I eat, she will get the vitamins she needs and it'll be MY body lacking and some how I have lost my self worth again.

I have to figure out how to feel like the old me, the one where I KNEW I was worth getting healthy... I miss the confidence I had. Some of my old thoughts of anti-eating have been resurfacing and I hate it... I know that I have to do it healthy if I want it to stay.

I've lost my way and I can't find my way back...

    You can find your way back and you are worth it. Think of how you want Riley to never have the same problems with food that we have. You want her to see healthy eating habits from the start. Trust me my daughter if 6 and it is a struggle to get her to eat healthy because I did not practice it early. I have been good for the past 1 1/2 years however the first 4 years I was not so good and she picked up bad habits early. Take that baby on a stroll now that the weather is better and enjoy being a mom. Soon they are all grown and giving you attitude. ha ha

    Hey there, I know EXACTLY where you are coming from. I too had this problem. I struggled ALL of last year with my eating, one day great the next a total bust! I would lose 5lbs one week & regain them. I lost 7lbs one week & regained it. I know people on this site are ALWAYS saying "You can do this"! Well HECK ya, we can do ANYTHING we REALLY want to do, BUT you have to REALLY want to do it. I realize now, that last year, I just wasn't READY to FULLY make the commitment. I wanted it, but NOT ENOUGH to do more about it!! You WILL find your way, YOUR WAY, YOUR TERMS. I know what it feels like when you feel it seems like you are worthless & just destined to be heavy, & that you should just give in and accept it. I told myself that many times over the last year. I couldn't break through that feeling until I was REALLY READY to!! I think you are amazing!!!

    You can do this! Remember how special you are to yourself and mostly to your daughter. Anytime I need motivation I remember why I am doing this. I want my kids to grow up with healthier habits then I had and to have the best start. Most of all your daughter wants a happy mommy so go make momma happy girl!!! We have got your back! Just start somewhere...all it takes is one step forward.
