I’m going through the exact same thing! I got in shape, tanned, watching what I ate, etc… Now Hubby and I definitely need to go back to the gym! We’ve been back a couple times, but it’s so hard. I don’t have any advice, because I’m the same. I just want to say, I feel your pain! Lol

Get it out of your house. Can’t eat what you don’t have =]

It takes time to adjust to a regular job. Took me about 6 months! it was so weird after being in school so long. Schedule work outs into your day and just make yourself do it. only you can motivate yourself.  maybe you have, for lack of better words, a “fat photo” of yourself around? unflattering photos motivate me to go work out πŸ™‚

It’s usually easier if you have someone doing it with you. Would your husband be willing to work out/eat healthy with you?

I COMPLETELY understand! Whenever I try to get in shape and be healthy, a goal date usually backfires on me (which is why I’m stuck in the lose-gain cycle). I think having a goal date in mind – especially one of as much importance as your wedding day – will almost always have a bit of a back slide after the date has passed.

Even though getting healthy feels amazing and has incredible benefits, somehow it can still seem like work. When the goal date passes, I always feel like I “deserve” the chips or fried food or whatever.

I practically gained back every pound I lost after my wedding. I’m back on track now, though, with no looming date… that way, it really is a lifestyle change, and not a change I’m making to satisify a desire to look a certain way by a certain day.

You know, I didn’t really work too hard to lose a lot of weight before the wedding, but for whatever reason, I’m so ready to make sure that we are eating better, working out, etc. I don’t know if I’m trying to get my body ready to start TTC, but I know it’s a good thing because we need to be healthier. I guess now I will turn all the focus that had previously been on my wedding to the baby-preparing. πŸ˜‰ My problem that I have is finding time to fit everything in. I want to get up early to work out, but I stay up too late, so it’s either be sleep deprieved or work out. I know I need sleep to help lose weight.

That’s a lot of transitions at one time–I mean big life milestones.  No wonder you’ve gone back to old habits as it’s something comforting and familiar.  Take time for yourself, do what you love, and I’m sure your wonderful new hubby will be by your side to support and motivate you!  πŸ™‚

I’m totally feeling you! I just feel like I would explode if I had to deal with surging hormones, baby, and changing eating habits it would be too much. Luckily, we are not going to start actively trying until this summer. Since we’ve been on our honeymoon this week, I haven’t really done anything. I did bring my ‘Walk away the pounds’ DVD, but it’s stayed packed away. Oh well! Now I have something to focus on now that the wedding is over. We can resolve to be better together! Smile I am going to start focusing on my WW, especially with the new system!One of my sisters does it and she loves teh new points. I think if I just remind myself why I’m doing it, it will make it a bit easier. It will be an everyday thing.

I feel you, chica! I also graduated, got married, and had to find a real job very quickly. I was stressed and busy and it was easy to eat conviently and be so tired I didn’t feel like moving once I got home. 

However, step one was getting my hubby on board with healthier eating. We decided it was worth investing in our health and well-being to spend more on groceries each month. We also invested in a juicer and have been routinely making fruit and veggie juice for breakfast.

As far as moving/exercising, it’s best to make time for it first so you can’t put it off! Early mornings aren’t always easy, but then you can’t forget about it or be too tired for it later. I’ve found a couple of classes nearby with my sisters, having people to work out with always makes it better too!
