Day 18: Takin' care of business

Sunday, September 29, 2013

Well, I've been tracking my carbs the last four days and I was SHOCKED to discover that I'm eating in excess of 500 grams of carbs a day! Yowzers! My calories are in range for breastfeeding- around 2000-2500 each day. I was really surprised by my tracking and am excited to see what paying attention to these levels do for me.

Also it looks like I'll have a loss this week of at least 1 pound. I'm aiming for more- and will see how things cook by Wednesday. I have a feeling this is due to be being more consistent in taking my metformin, and logging my food.

On other news, I had a video of myself playing with my son and I was APPALLED at how I look. UGH! I'm ready to start looking like a much less swollen version of myself again.

    Those carbs are sneaky little devils! If I remember right you were doing your best when you were watching your carbs... so just by getting back to that you are going to see some incredible changes! :D I am so sorry you didn't like the way you looked, but please remember you are absolutely stunning at any size, and your body has been through a lot bringing a GORGEOUS baby into this world. emoticon

    Keep focusing on healthy foods and the swelling and bloating will disappear.

    Wow! Good thing you caught on to the carbs now! I know those can really be sneaky and hinder any kind of progress we work towards. I too am really excited to see how this next week goes for you since you are changing the carb levels!

I'm sorry you don't like the way you look while you're playing with your baby. You'll get to where you want to be. I believe in you. :)
