Progress report: Week 7

Oops, I accidentally skipped a week of reporting progress.

Week 6 I was on a road trip across the country with Lemon and Viktor. We drove 12 hours to visit my side of the family because they still hadn’t met the little guy. They passed him around like a game of hot potato until the entire room had held him. I also have a cousin who gave birth 4 days after me, and we met up with her as well to see if our babies would get along.… Read more

Progress report: Week 5

This week has been relatively uneventful. On Thursday I woke up utterly convinced that it was Tuesday. I guess that’s what they call momnesia.

Speaking of which, a few weeks ago I accidentally stole $5 worth of minor items at a shopping center. It really was an accident, I promise. I was going to pay for the items I had picked out, but placed them into a shopping cart under some bags, and when I had walked around the store for a little while I simply forgot I had them and left the store.… Read more

Progress report: Week 4

This week I’ve been working on a video to show you guys how I bathe my baby. It’s my first time trying to make a video, but luckily I’ve had Lemon helping me out. We’re shooting with my Canon 700D and he’s handling all the audio stuff and music since he’s a musician.

At first, we shot the whole thing using only the lights that were already in the room we were shooting in. Usually some old yellow ceiling spots. The results were not great.… Read more

Progress report: Week 3

Making good progress now, down nearly 2kg since last week. And, best of all, it’s easy. I’m just eating what I want, in smaller portions. Never feeling deprived. Life is good and weight loss comes easy right now. Let’s hope it stays that way.

Today, my son got to meet his great great grandmother for the first time. Not everyone gets to meet their great great grandmothers at all, so it felt quite special. Great great grandma is an unusually fit woman of 94 years, with all her mental faculties still intact.… Read more

Progress report: Week 2

This will be a short post. Being a mother to a two week old baby is exhausting, to say the least. If I’m not sleeping, I’m breastfeeding or changing diapers, and I barely have enough energy to do other things like clean the house or work on this blog.

Today I found a few minutes to work on my project, however. I’m trying to crochet a mobile for the stroller. There’s no concrete plan on what it’s going to look like in the end.… Read more

Progress report: Week 1

The plan is to write at least one post every week, usually every Friday. Sometimes more. These weekly posts will be progress reports on my weight loss, and a description of any milestones I’ve achieved during that week.

In addition to these weekly updates, I will be posting features every now and then.

These will be things like:

  • Big, fat educational posts about weight loss, pregnancy and parenting
  • Worthwhile anecdotes from my life as a parent
  • Original video content

I didn’t write anything last week because I was in the middle of achieving the majorest of all milestones; giving birth to my first child.… Read more


Raison d’être

Hi. I’m Heavymom, and this is my first post.

This blog is going to be about weight loss, and about being a mother for the first time. I need a place to gather my thoughts, to share my experiences, and maybe to vent when things aren’t going very well. I’ll also try to share any useful information I learn in the process, often in the form of tutorial videos and picture guides.

In a year I want to go back to the earlier posts to see my progress, and maybe reflect on the things I have learned.… Read more
