I had a rather difficult day. Had 3 grandbabies all day. 1 is 3 and the other two are twin boys. 3 mo. old. really keeps me going. I did not have time to prepare meals ahead. Thank God my DH brought a salad home for me for lunch. I have not reached my calorie intake for the day. And now it is too late to eat. UGH!!! Better planning for next week.

I want IE to work so badly, but I'm still in a "diet" mindset and when I see a little gain, I fall back to counting calories. Then some days if I'm struggling and blow my calorie limit, I'll often give up the rest of the day and have what what I want. Then again, on a good day when I see I have calories left over I'll sometimes eat them just because they are...
