As I said in my last post, I'm trying to get back on track. Starting in November I'm going to be diligent in keeping track of our spending and saving. But it's never too early to get back into the groove, right?

So my confession of the day is... I spent $4 on pizza for lunch yesterday. A bunch of people in the office were ordering and I normally have willpower, but blame it on the baby or hungry or whatever, I splurged and went in on it. The really bad thing? I packed my lunch and it was waiting in the fridge for me to eat. Yeah. I know. Not cool.

I realize that it could have been way worse than $4, but it's the lack of self-control. The mindset that "it's ONLY $4".

Not to mention that my waistline no long exist. I went to my 20 week appointment on Monday and according to their records I've gain almost 10 pounds since my first visit! Granted I was below my normal weight at my first appointment due to lack of hunger, but still. I don't care who you are, and if it's consider a 'healthy gain'. Gaining 10 pounds in 10 weeks is hard for any woman to bear. Especially if you're eating pizza and know that it doesn't help.

Oh well. Guess I better get used to it :-)

Awe. I think your ten lb weight gain is good for the baby. It means its growing. :)

I've gotten out of control with my eating out. it may just be $4 today, but it'll be $100 by the end of the month!!

Don't worry about it. Your weight gain will average out. I gained a lot in the beginning of my pregnancy, but only gained 18lbs overall. I had a normal baby of 6lbs 9oz. You will be fine! Just make sure you get lots of vitamins!
