even though i'm missing out on the whole pregnancy thing, i'm trying to remind myself of all the positives. a not-so-positive aspect of this experience has been the 20lb weight gain the fertility meds caused. however, since i've got someone else doing my dirty work in all this, it gives me the opportunity to lose the "baby weight" before the baby is even born.
8 weeks. that's all i have left before d-day. can i lose 20lbs in that short amount of time? the typical self-doubt says no, but the calculator says yes! that's only 2.5lbs a week. totally doable!
the trick is going to be to keep me motivated. usually when i have a goal i'm working toward (a race or a deadline of some sort), i can do it. well, that's as long as i don't give myself too much time. procrastination is a particular talent of mine. so, i'm going to have to keep myself accountable.
my plan is to do a weekly progress report. i work better under pressure and if i have to tell y'all about how much work i've been putting into it and what my weekly weigh-in results are, it should help keep me going.
thursday will be my weigh-in day, so stay tuned!
