The Pity Party is OVER.

Tuesday, June 06, 2017

Ok, so yesterday was the pity party day. I spent all day, and part of the morning feeling sorry for myself and just generally miserable. I'm done with that. I have this. I don't know what I'm doing, but I'm trying different things; tracking my food along with my numbers, and doing some research. I have an appointment with the dietitian Thursday, thankfully. I want to thank you all for your support and advice. I've been doing my best, but it's hard when I don't know what I'm really doing Mealtime stinks right now.
I started testing an hour after meals, because I find that Lily is demanding food before I can manage to get to two hours, and then of course my numbers are useless. I managed to test 4x yesterday (previously I'd only managed 3x, and I'm supposed to be doing 4)
I'm gonna try to do some more walking than just my usual today, though I'm not sure if that's going to work, cause I just felt Lily flip, and I have braxton hicks already from walking too fast. So we'll see how I feel in a couple of hours.
Packing lunch today was tough. It took me about 3x as long as possible, while I checked labels for carb & protein content. Our house is FULL of junk food. I live with my inlaws, so I talked to my MIL, and we were talking about switching over all of our diets to something healthier. Right now there are lots of cookies and chips in the house. So maybe this will help us all!

    Switching over all your diets will benefit the health of all your family! It is a great choice. Now the kids are not going to like it, especially in the beginning, persevere! I have a coworker whose daughter was over 100 pounds by the age of six. She banned all the junk food from the house, but her daughter in sports. She said it was really rough going at first, but the better food and diet worked! lol my kids learned my sugar rule at a young age and soon as they could read they were checking the cereal box labels and I would hear" Mommy can we buy this, the sugar is not in the first two ingredients." It was amazing how many breakfast cereals have sugar as one of the first two ingredients. I'm older and don't eat cereal so hopefully with society focused more on healthy food that has changed!
