Training for Baby: Not really goodbye

Posted October 18, 2011

I have been contributing for about a year to Go Ask Mom and it has been awesome!

You moms (and a few dads) have welcomed me into your community with open arms, despite the fact that I am not among your ranks.

In the past year, you helped keep me on track with my weight loss goals. I have appreciated all of your advice and support.

But now it has come time for me to say goodbye.

Well, not really goodbye, more like a “I’ll see you soon.”

I am not a big fan of goodbyes. They seem so final.

I have decided to step away from blogging for a bit.

I’ve reached my weight-loss goal and surpassed it – now 35 pounds down and holding steady – and it is time to focus on starting a family.

Whether it happens in a month or a year, I know that there is no way I could keep it secret from ya’ll! So, I gotta step away for a bit.

I will be back because if I do get pregnant, I am going to need a lot of advice from you wise women!

Take care,
