Now you know I wasn’t kidding, when I wrote in my first blog post ever, “Pregnancy for me is like pulling the rip cord on an inflatable life raft.” I have to be honest, I still squirm on the inside and I am riddled with anxiety about sharing progress posts and photos in my current state. I constantly question why anyone would want to read what I have to say now? Why not wait until I complete my weight-loss and then post my success. It all comes back to why I write.

I hope these post will be encouraging for those of you on this journey with me.
