In the December DDC social group I think we should have a weight-loss thread for afterwards. I'm going to be there!! I needed to lose weight *before* getting pregnant. Being pregnant just helps me to not obsess over it.
I think that's a great idea. I've only really felt restricted in the last 2 or 3 weeks in terms of what my body is allowing me to do even though I started cutting back a while ago. I'm looking forward to running and feeling light on my feet. To being able to do a full spinal twist. To lay on my stomach! To lay on my back! So many things we'll be able to do!
Azadehast, I think we have really similar bumps. I really hate putting my picture on the internet, but maybe I'll put one up for a few days to help you feel not-alone.
I swing wildly back and forth between loving my body and hating it. Mostly these days I love it. I won't mind it going back to normal, but knowing it's temporary ... I feel beautiful. I feel prettier naked than with maternity clothes on though. They make me feel like a sack of potatoes. :)
