Stop Overeating while pregnant

I’m focusing on stop overeating right now, and I’m having trouble with my Why. I’m 6 months pregnant, so I’m not trying to lose weight, but I am trying to be healthy and to gain the right amount of weight.

My why has been that I want to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight as soon as possible after I have my baby in June. I also want to build habits that will allow me to keep the weight off long-term. I really think those are my compelling reasons.

The problem is that I’m repeatedly not honoring my protocol. I think it’s difficult to be motivated to stick to it when I’m not seeing the scale go down.

Then I think that my why should be the health of my baby, and I feel guilty that that doesn’t seem to be compelling enough to get me to eat better.

How do I sort all this out and refine my why? And how do I know if it’s my why that’s the problem or if it’s something else?
