Doing this for a new reason

I am 31 years old, married, and have a 12 year old son. I am a teacher (for 8 years).
I wasn't overweight as a child, but gained as a teen and was overweight in junior high and high school. I didn't know what healthy habits were. My idea of exercise was turning pages in a book!
In college, I lost a lot of weight by not eating much. I was at a healthy weight, but I wasn't healthy.

In college, I lost a lot of weight by not eating much. I was at a healthy weight, but I wasn't healthy.
When I met my husband I picked up a lot of his eating habits and thought I would always be "skinny" and though the pounds crept up over the past 10 years, I was in denial about it. I thought I was eating and exercising ok, and began to make excuses about why I was overweight.
I have learned how to eat so much better for my body. Exercising however, is still not my friend. We have a love-hate relationship. I have to force myself to workout. I am at a healthy weight now after being on SP for a few months, but I will always have to work on the fitness aspect.
After struggling with infertility for 2 years, I found a specialist in June 2012 that helped me to fix my diet even more and she swore it would help me to get pregnant. I wasn't overweight but the foods I was eating were causing a hormonal imbalance. Within 3 months I had lost 12 pounds, and in September I found out I was expecting! I am due in June and could not be happier.

My Goals:
I would like to continue to eat healthy and workout 3-4 times a week so I can have a healthy pregnancy and baby.

My Program:
My doctor took me off of refined carbs and starches so I am mostly eating fruits, veggies, meats and dairy.
I try to get out for a walk 4 or 5 times a week. If it isn't too hot I work in some jogging.
I also have a new treadmill that I can program for training and I am using that 3-4 times a week minimum.

The Fitbit that I wear logs in quite a bit of exercise whenever I just keep moving. That's how I do it. emoticon How are you doing? Are you getting ready to go back to school yet? I actually packed up my old office and moved it to a new school all last week. Crazy!!!
