Day of Thanks
Well, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. I’m in my 25th 2WW and I’m really hoping that this is going to be a Holiday Season to really give thanks. I’m staying positive but trying not to obsess over being pregnant too much. I’m going to drink wine, eat a lot of food and spend much needed quality time with my family.
We have so much to be thankful for. As much as infertility hurts, I never stop being gracious and thankful for having the blessed life that I have.
On another note… My weight loss journey is still going strong!! I recorded another 1.5 pound loss for the week bringing me to 14 pounds total. I’m stoked, but I keep thinking to myself, how long can I keep this up?? I know that my Group Fitness classes will get easier and will be less demanding on my body over time. The hard part is sticking with it, just KNOWING how much I’m going to hurt the next day makes it really hard to stay motivated. On the other hand, it is thrilling to see the scale go down and know how much good this is doing for my overall health but most importantly, my fertility. I’m hoping that by continuing on with this very positive change in my life that I won’t have to go and see that RE next summer. That I won’t have to inject fertility meds into my body. That I won’t have to go to my doctor every single fricken day. THIS is why losing weight is such a motivator. It’s been a long slow road (only 14 pounds in 4 months… ), but I just keep reminding myself that slow is best and will make it more likely to keep it off forever. I can DO THIS!!!
A very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving to all!
