Lets start here.
|This is the difference in just one week|
I quit school and Bailey and I stayed home all day everyday. We baked A LOT together and the pounds piled on. Have you really looked at the sodium content at the grocery store. EVERYTHING has a ton in it even if it says low sodium its not. I spent a lot of my time baking things from scratch so he could still enjoy 'kid friendly' foods.
Fast forward. He hasnt had a relapse in 2 years and though I was still in a toxic marriage, but my baby was healthy again. I pray to God he stays that way. Then I took a long hard look in the mirror...Brittney you're not healthy and youre not setting a good example for your child. I started walking everyday and lost a few pounds but lets be honest here I wasn't trying very hard.
My doctor didnt cut me any slack he said Brittney, you're too heavy to gain the 25-30lbs most women gain when they're pregnant. He said Id like you to maintain your weight throughout your pregnancy WHATTT!? However, after I got finished crying I took what he said to heart. I walked everyday and I didn't give in to ANY of my cravings.
