Giving Up on Good {October}

Wow...I've missed a few months of giving up on good. Time is flying and it seems like I'm so busy all of the time!

Anyways, on to what I'm giving up for good. If you're not sure what I'm talking about, you can find my original post about it {here} where I explain the whole giving up on good idea.

This month I've decided to give up on....trying to get pregnant until I lose weight. It's hard. We haven't really been trying dedicatedly {not a word} but there is always that wanting to see that word
"pregnant" on that little pee stick.

The truth of the matter is that I need to lose about 60 lbs before I would be at where I want to be at. Now, to be healthy and pregnant I think I could lose about 40 and be good. I don't want to stop there though. This is not about looking good and being "hawt," even though that's nice, it's about being healthy. For me and for baby Covington #2. I know I'm probably a little paranoid because of what happened with our first pregnancy, but I don't want anything to go wrong this time. I don't want to have high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, have to be on bed rest, anything! This next pregnancy is going to be perfect. I don't care if I'm puking my guts out...that typically means that everything is going great and things are progressing the way they should.

My mom always says, "you had something stolen from you the first time so that means you get a double blessing the second time." I'm praying against twins! Ok, I wouldn't mind twins as long as there is one boy and one girl in room for any more at one time! :) Just kidding, in all reality I will be happy with whatever comes our way. One, two, three...I'm stopping there. No Covington 12 or anything!

Can you cheer me on? I need a little encouragement. I think that knowing that we aren't going to try until I lose some weight will help motivate me, but you never know. :) I'm going to try and start a new series about my weight loss so that I can document it and keep you all updated. I did this last time I was going to lose weight and then we found out we were pregnant the same week. {hmmm} I am going to stick with it....I'm going to be a skinnier pregnant lady! :) Again, not for looks, just for health!!! Plus, if I get skinnier now, I won't be so worried about gaining some while I'm pregnant!

I'm linking up with Sarah today @ the Fontenot Four in rememberance of our lost babies. I have linking up my story there, but you can also read it {here}

Today I'm remembering...
Baby Covington {4/20/12}
My niece/nephew
And all the other little ones that we lost too soon!


  1. You can do this, Lady. You can. And the reward is going to be a happier you. Don't give up.

    I'm working on this too. Most days I want to give up especially after working out hard for a week and losing no weight. But the end is the goal. Not the beginning.

    KEEP IT UP!!!!

  2. Remembering your little one alongside you today ... and wishing you success on your new journey! You can do it!

  3. Remembering your sweetie today. So happy you found me and linked up your story. I'm excited to get to know you!
