Alright, I'm going to join in on the weight loss fun. My goal is about a pound per week. I was 185-190 when I delivered and right now I'm at 153 (can't WAIT to see the 140s Carrie-congrats). My birthday is February 17th- I want to be at 145 by then and be able to wear one of my old dresses and go out dancing. That's 5 lbs above my pre preg weight, but I'm ok with some extra weight while I'm still nursing. The numbers on the scale don't bother me as much as the flabbiness that has become my stomach and hips. No one told me my stomach would feel like pizza dough!
I'm not making exercise a big enouhg priority. When it was warm out we took walks everyday, now that it's cold I only get my butt on the treadmill a few times a week and it's just not cutting it. I try to get some yoga in a couple of times a week too, but it's rare that it happens. My biggest problem is Ada only takes 45 minute naps so after I get some cleaning and other things done, I don't have much free time to work with. I also work Mondays/Wednesdays/Saturdays so exercise is not even really an option those days. I've got to figure something out because this body is not going to tone itself.
Lyn, I am the same way with my food, if I don't have fresh fruit or yogurt or nuts around to eat I grab the first available easy thing which is likely to be pretzels or anything else that's laying around and probably not the most nutritious.
Today my eating is looking like this:
oatmeal with raisins, walnuts, brown sug & cinn.
I brought a greek yogurt, an apple and pb crackers to work and I'm sure I'll have 2 or 3 cups of coffee along with way
I'm making a pizza for dinner (wheat, with green peppers & onions)
I'm a slave to dessert--not sure what that will be yet, these days I'm really digging chocolate pudding and whipped cream (I use skim milk and low fat whipped cream, so it's basically like eating nothing, right?)
Not too bad, I'm making up for yesterday's potato salad and donut
