Had a great weekend.  Enjoying my time with my wife and the new baby.  It's great to be healthy.  Yesterday I went running for the second time since I took a break.  Was a little sketchy to be running around on my rural roads but I guess i need to get use to it so I can save more time to be home.

Last week I lost .8.  Nothing big but still progressing.  Feels good to see the results.  After coming home from running and looking at my daughter's eyes and seeing that's my motivation to not be fat is great.

I also was about to change my profile picture from my honeymoon.  I was huge.  here is some pictures for comparison.

Best Weight Gain Ever.....on a Diet

On May 8 at 12:15 I gained the greatest 7 lbs 5 oz you could ask for.  My Wife and I were gifted with our Daughter, Avery Elizabeth. She is beautiful and healthy.  I also lost 1.6 lbs at weigh in on Saturday.

To think that 9 months ago I decided to go on this journey to lose weight and at the same time my wife was pregnant.  Part of my goal of weight loss was to be able to be a great dad.  I have said this before but it is the number one reason. I want to be able to enjoy the time with my daughter, my wife and son.

This past few days has been very amazing, tough, awesome, and beautiful.

It was pretty tough to eat healthy in the hospital but at least it was only 2 days.  I was more concerned with my wife's health.

But we are home. We are learning and we are enjoying our beautiful gift.

Now that my wife has given birth, our goal is to keep eating healthy so she can feed our daughter with healthy nutrients.
