Discovering Me

Me on having babies, losing babies, trying to have babies and hoping to bring this one home.

Still on a "High"

4th day of high readings on the fertility monitor. No peak yet even though my temps have started to creep up after a big drop (the one I thought meant O was coming). Maybe that's normal with the first month while the machine gets used to the hormone levels for each individual. I guess we'll see.

Went for a really long walk today. Our neighborhood has a 4 mile circle that has lots of hills. B and I pushed the girls through the whole thing today. Phew, what a work out. It's hot already too, so that made getting home for a soak in the pool mighty rewarding. I think we might have figured out why my body image has been so crappy. I lost all my weight plus some after I had Gracie, but this time has been very different. Aside from the fact that I didn't have a nursing newborn to help melt the pounds, I have just had no motivation to get the last 10 (okay, maybe it's closer to 20) off and get a little more in shape. None.

Today we walked and I've been eating better and that feels good, but I think that I hate my body for other reasons. My body failed me. My body killed my baby and I just can't seem to get past that. I wonder if figuring it out will help. I think that finally "getting" that might make a difference in my motivation to feel better about how I look. Does that make sense to anyone but me? I know I'm a cow and before I just really didn't care. Well, I cared, but not enough to get off of my fat ass and DO something about it.

I sure the hell hope so.

    Yes, it makes perfect sense. But remember you are also 30 now and that is working against you too. It was easier to bounce back even a couple years ago when we we young'uns! I think if I were in your shoes, I might be mad at my body too. That is completely irrational, but it seems to make sense at the same time.

    Well, I was always fat, so it's nothing new for me to hate my body. But, yes, I have certainly experienced the "I killed my baby" thing. I have a plan that if this baby is born, I am going to get in shape and look good...but the last time I followed through on that plan was for my wedding, which was like 4 years ago.
