I am back after a long break. So much has happened in the past 2 years since I last updated my previous blog (CBGBlog). Let me catch everyone up.....
When I stopped updating the site (fall 2010), I am not going to lie, it is because I fell off the healthy wagon. I was getting depressed at work and things in general and I went back to my unhealthy ways. Then in spring 2011 my husband and I started working toward starting a family. Complications happened and due to this, depression kicked in more and more weight came back on. So from September 2010 - December 2011 I went from 255 pounds back to my starting weight of 315 pounds.
Then at the end of December it happened - we got pregnant! Not only that, but with twins! So I delivered 2 amazing and healthy baby boys at the end of August. The highest weight I became was 380 pounds.
At the beginning of January (4 months since their birth), I decided to start my adventure toward being healthy again. I did it before and I can do it again. I have even more motivation this time - my 2 sons. I want to be there for them as they grow up and be active in their life. Being my weight does slow me down in ways and I want to be able to play outside with them, get up and down off the floor comfortably when they want to play. I just want to be a healthier mom for not only myself but for them.
So here I am! I started my adventure at 330 pounds. I feel happy to know that I have already lost almost all of my pregnancy weight before I start this adventure and now it is time for me to keep going. I have come back on here because tihis helped me so much last time. To be accountable for my action and to have the encouragement/support from others is amazing!
I will discuss more about my boys and pregnancy as times goes on and if you have any questions about a plus-sized pregnancy or c-section delivery/recovery - feel free to ask!
I hope to catch back up with those I was friends with before and make new friends along the way of this new adventure.
So grab your bags because we are about to begin... THE NEW ADVENTURE OF JESSICA!
