I am having the hardest time with this right now, and just needed to vent for a minute... and see if any moms are having the same troubles!
I have always battled my weight, always. Anyone who knows me will say I have always been a roly poly chub. In February of this year, I started a diet, and have lost 80 pounds. I feel amazing, I look incredible, and am happier than I've ever been. 2 weeks ago, I found out I was pregnant, which was also right about the time that I was only 5 pounds away from my goal weight. I've now gone off the diet, but am still eating healthy.
Problem is, I'm having the hardest time switching my brain from, "Let's lose this weight!" to "It's okay, and even necessary, to gain some weight for this baby!" I can't help but feel like I'm just getting fat again, after all this hard work!
Any other moms experience this feeling, and have some anxiety around gaining weight?
