In the past year I gained 50 pounds because I was laid up with knee injuries and subsequent knee surgeries (first the right one.... then the left) and now I'm pregnant. I am starting out the pregnancy 50 pounds (weighing in at 185 pounds.... when I'm usually around 140 pounds) overweight! I'm not too worried about it because I started my first pregnancy at 240 pounds and my second pregnancy started out at 140 pounds.... so I have been on both ends of the spectrum.... but it's just frustrating to be at this weight right now (pregnancy or not) because there was really nothing I could do about it. Now that I can do something about it I will. I plan to go for a 30 minute walk everyday and really watch what I eat. I will still gain weight... but I make sure that I do what I can to ensure that I stay as low as I can on the scale. The other problem is that the morning sickness feels better when I'm eating something.... so I feel like I'm eating more often. I'm trying to eat fruit... but it feels better to eat protein.... which I guess is ok too. I'm going to follow a healthy eating plan/menu and walk and I hope that will keep me fit.
