The end goal

After years of weight gain and two diet attempts, I'm at it again...What's different this time? I want a family. My weight is a very large obstacle to that.” – TinyTrim, February 2007

Ignoring the fact that it's a little dorky to quote oneself on one's own blog, I thought it apropos to bring that snippet out from the past as an explanation for the present.

After having met my weight loss goal, it's good to be reminded that the real goal never changed. It may have been temporarily forgotten, sidelined, sidetracked, but it was always there. To add a wee one to the family of Mr. and Mrs. Trim.

During the last number of weeks coasting along and trying to figure out what to do with myself after having reached goal, it finally came to me. In trying to get down to a lower weight instead of getting used to my body now, I was actually postponing "the big decision."

In actuality, the time is now. And this is why I'm finally moving to Maintenance. I'm getting my body out of losing mode and into making mode. I've started taking prenatal vitamins and have a doctor's appointment in September to get the all-clear.

What will happen to my blog? For now at least, I'll continue to post as I have been, still with Weight Watchers as the main theme. If a bit of baby sneaks in, hopefully you can't blame me :)

Congratulations! It's clear from your blog and all the support that you give others that you will make a thoughtful and caring mom. Plus your child is going to grow up with a wonderful model of physical fitness and food.

I'll continue to check your blog, but I have decided to close mine as I am not really blogging.

This is my 1st time here, and I just have to say, WOW!! You are an inspiration!! I'm not doing WW, but a friend is, and I'll have to send a link to your blog. I wish you well in the baby endeavor- no advice there as we've been trying for years. The weight goes away as IFmeds/shots come and bring it again. GOOD LUCK!
