Here I come size 8!!!

Update:(9/25/12)
Another sprout has 'sprouted'!!!!! I'm due the middle of April. I'm feeling pretty good now,though the weeks between 6-10 were all.day.nausea. I've eaten way too much junk food just to try and feel better. sometimes it helped, others it made the icky feeling worse. I'm still running 3-4 days a week but won't be doing any major mileage(above 7-8 miles) til after baby arrives.

I've eaten way too much junk food just to try and feel better. sometimes it helped, others it made the icky feeling worse. I'm still running 3-4 days a week but won't be doing any major mileage(above 7-8 miles) til after baby arrives.
I'm trying to recommit to healthy eating and wise portions so that I won't continue to gain excess weight. The last pregnancy I felt awesome and gained only 24 lbs with just 3 the first trimester. Here I am at 11 weeks along and though I haven't been on the scale in about 8 weeks, I'm quite sure that I'm way past 3 lb gain. My belly is protruding more than any of the others and the way I feel so 'heavy' in the uterus, trouble falling asleep and feeling 'full' easily, I wonder if little one has a roommate in there. Time and ultrasound will tell~~~

Update (10-24-11)

Still a mother of 11(no new ones on the way) but I'm 42 now. I feel like I'm just treading water with occasional dunkings of bad eating. I had wonderful success with clean eating(see blog post from July) but got off the wagon somehow,can't run b/c of muscle injuries. No, there's no good reasons but I keep telling myself,"when I run again, I'll be able to get leaner again." Since nutritiion is 80% of the game, I should be plenty thin right now. I feel fluffy and my momma tummy is always the first sign that I'm eating the wrong foods and too much of them.
I want to get leaner and stronger so when I can run, I'll be ready. I am lifting weights 3x a week using workouts by Turbulence Training. Also, I have to go to PT 3x a week so I do exercises there for my glutes and core. I'm supposed to do those daily but they get pushed to the wayside with my 'life'.
No more excuses~it's time for ME to get back on the plan!

I'm a 41 yr old mom of 11 and looking to eat healthy, get slimmer and stay that way! In the past 16 years, I've gained over 380 lbs and lost all but 18!!! I refuse to let myself go and I will not buy bigger clothes. However, with the climbing of my years, it's harder and harder and I am thrilled to find Sparkpeople for tracking my food and for motivation from all of you!!

(9/8/09) Just an update-I'm still 40, I'm 2 lbs away from my goal. I have been running and cycling(alternate days) all summer. I didn't lose any weight between May and August! A SP friend told me about the Blood type diet and being an O type, I have avoided wheat and dairy for the most part. I lost 6lbs in 4 weeks!!! I ate lots of veggies and fruit and lean fish and chicken. I'm trying to incorporate spelt flour into my baking now so I can eat some whole grains.

I'm planning on staying on this way of eating forever-as long as my belly's not bothered and I'm keeping the weight off. I look forward to going into menopause healthy and fit!
9-28-09 UPDATE: I'm 10 weeks pregnant. Still running and looking forward to running thru the pregnancy. Running seems to keep the nausea at bay and I'm all over that!
I've gained back about 4 lbs after losing the 6lb in August. I hope to keep my weight gain to a max of 30 lbs but would love just 25lbs. It gets harder and harder as the years go by to lose the baby weight. I am committed to staying healthy and eating good food. It's hard right now b/c of this awful taste in my mouth-good food doesn't taste good. I'm trying,though. Trying to limit portions and not snack too much.
Update 4/28/10: After a fantastic pregnancy of running, eating healthy and feeling great,I gained only 24 lbs and delivered a healthy baby boy who weighed 7 # 4oz and was 20.5 inches. Now, my scale says 146 lbs so 10lb to lose and about one more to get to goal of 135. I haven't started back running yet, but I have been walking and plan on trying to run very soon.

Okay - since you mentioned that I can tell him that I am an adult and can eat what I want we had another talk :) AND you are so right - he just wants to fix things and doesn't know how to help. So we had a talk about that too! Jon is a bit of a doof sometimes so this will take time and I am trying to check my reactions too. Ya know I was talking to Jon about you and showed him some pics on Facebook - he thinks you're gorgeous (and he's right)!!! And now, whenever I mention any friends at all, he asks - is that the one with the 12 kids? LOL I told him you're my idol! HUGS! Sending HUGS!!!

I know this is quite late, but congratulations on your newest little one! I haven't been on SP for awhile, but have kept you in mind. So happy for you and your family!
