I'm not going to make one of those dumb ticker things that counts down the lbs you lose so I'll just say that in 6 weeks I've lost about 25lbs. I'm pretty stoked about the whole thing obviously.
It's been relatively simple which is great. The tough part is when I'm at home - the boys eat normal stuff and I'm having to make something different for myself which is annoying and difficult. I haven't worked the whole exercise thing in yet but that's the plan. I try and make a lot of stuff ahead of time so I always have it on hand. I'll make a bunch of salmon or pork chops or even burgers. Chicken got old really fast so I have been staying away from that for a little while though I'm sure we'll be friends again soon. I've always loved veggies so that's been simple. It's amazing how as a mom you don't even think about popping teddy grahams into your mouth like nothing. No more teddy grahams for this mom, at least not for now.
None of my work slacks fit anymore which is amazing and trying at the same time. It puts me in a position where I really, really need to do some serious shopping but really, really don't want to. I love shopping, don't get me wrong, but I just don't want to go out and spend gobs of money when I'm still losing. I have a few skirts that I can wear without looking dumpy and sloppy but I'm going to have to make a few purchases to get me through.
I've slowed way down on the weight loss though in the last couple weeks which can be discouraging. I think I'm getting lazy about it (isnt that what got me in this situation in the first place?) and not eating enough. I think I need to start setting alarms to remind me to eat. My job is so fast paced that suddenly 5 hours will fly by and I haven't left my office.
I don't really have an actual goal in mind so I don't know how long I'll keep doing this. I can already tell though that my concern currently will be transitioning from this to being able to eat bad things some of the time without gaining all the weight back. I miss mexican food and pizza. and mexican pizza :)
i think noah's bowells get moving when he's in the bath. maybe it's the warm water on his belly or maybe it's simply spite that the minute I have him clean he poops. literally, I get him out of the tub, dry him off and immediatly strap a fresh diaper on him and...bomb.
i read someone's post today that their 4 year old kid changes the diaper of their baby. maybe i'm doing this parenting thing wrong but connor only wipes his own ass about 50%...why on earth would i let him handle someone else's business?? perhaps i'm just not utilizing my resources sufficiently like this other mom seems to.
speaking of utilizing resources, I seriously cannot wait until my kids can do serious, back-breaking labor. This place needs a good scrubbing.
all my friends are having babies within like a few weeks of each other. The bestie had hers Thursday and our close friends are at the hospital as I type this. I know for many, being around babies really makes their ovaries ache but it just really re-affirms our decision to have two. not like I have a choice since the dr said no more babies for me but the decision to tie my tubes was a good one for us. I love their babies and love holding them and smelling them but I just can't do it all over again. I think the illness we've dealt with this past year has really taken it out of me cause I cannot do this baby thing over!stay tuned. i have lots of posting to do to get caught up!
