It's Saturday evening and I'm working on my computer so I thought I would check in! Hubby went out and picked up pizza for him & his buddy while they watch football and I had him stop at Subway and buy me a salad. YAY ME!! We had pizza last night and I was good and only did two pieces then I measured out my ice cream for dessert so I made sure I didn't get more than one serving. WOO HOO! It feels so good to know that I'm making an honest effort to watch what I eat!
PARKER1031, WELCOME and congrats on BOTH of your new babies!! LOL! I love it when new mommies join our group. It's so hard losing weight when you are a mommy. I don't think people who aren't mommies can truly understand what it's like. My advice to you is to take it slow & easy and most definitely DON'T BEAT YOURSELF UP!! Don't try and cut out all bad food at once or promise yourself that you're never going to eat sugar again. If you do that you're just setting yourself up for failure! Start with drinking lots of water or adding more fruits & veggies to your diet. Then add on from there. And walking is AWESOME exercise. Can you put the kids in a stroller and take them for a walk? If it's cold where you are, head to the nearest mall! You'll be amazed how good it makes you feel!!
And welcome THIN_MOMMY too!! Don't worry, we all totally understand getting started and not doing well. It's SO hard to lose weight when you've got so much other stuff going on in your life. I think we all know about the "continuously tired and unwell" feeling. I know it's hard to do but you have to remember to take care of yourself too!! You can't take care of anybody else if you're not well. When you're tired and frustrated, stop for a second and ask yourself "What's bothering me right now and what can I do this very second to make myself feel better?". I know it doesn't sound like much but sometimes it helps just to acknowledge to yourself that YOU are important and do something to make yourself feel better!
Hope you are all having a WONDERFUL week-end full of fun and happiness!!
