I went to a WW Meeting last night after really working hard and following all of the rules over the past week. I have "removed" 6.4 pounds in one week! I do realize that not every week will see such high numbers, but for goodness sake, I was beyond excited! I have done my best to make healthier choices all week, even though we did have Taco Bell and Skyline during the week. I just made sure to eat within my points, and it really did pay off. This week, I'm 6.4 pounds lighter (with many more to go) and can have 1 less points plus per week. My goal is to lose 20 pounds by Sophie's first birthday in March. We'll see how it goes. I'm committed to tracking what I'm eating and to making healthier choices. One of my biggest motivators in this whole journey is to set a better example for Sophie. I remember my mom going on diets when I was younger and she'd always lose weight...but she would eat maybe one meal a day consisting of a baked potato and a piece of fish or chicken. I want to Sophie to see her parents making better, healthier choices so she can be healthy, too.
Speaking of the little stinker, she's now 10 months old...only two short months away from being a year old. I haven't taken her 10 month pictures yet...things have been a little crazy at our house. We're doing some, um, remodeling of sorts in the bathroom. Meaning that this morning, there was a big hole in the bathroom and no water in the house. That was fun. I'm hopeful that all will be normal (minus the leak) by the time I get home from work today. Sophie (and I) could both use a bath tonight! Plus, washing bottles with a jug of water was not too fun this morning!
