That is all...for now!

Off to a Auburn/Alabama football party, first I've been to in years! We're all decked out in blue and orange!

So Far So Good

On Weight Watchers, that is. It took me a couple days, but so far I love it! I have lost some weight already, but waiting until my meeting to actually record it. I feel like I'm in a better mood, I'm not as hungry as I thought I would be, and my fruit and veggie intake is MUCH more that it was!

Overall, I love it. I Have a "buddy" that's doing this with me, and we are cooking for 2 and splitting recipes, so that we have different things to eat. Also freezing portions, so that if I get hungry I will grab it and heat it up, instead of getting junk food, which is my weakness.

I am having a hard time giving up my sodas though. I could drink them, but it would cost too many points, and I'm saving some extras for Sat. Morning breakfast at Nana's! (worth it, in my opinion!)

As far as life in general, you can tell it's cold weather here at my house, my kids have been sick. Mostly Gabriel, poor guy has been sick all week, been to the Dr twice, yesterday they told us he has pneumonia! Thankfully we caught it early on, so he is already doing better. If you think of him, any prayers are greatly appreciated!

The beginning of the end...

...of my weight gaining, that is!

It's been no secret to most of my friends that I've gained a good bit of weight over the last year, so it's not like I'm telling you something you didn't know...but I'm tired of it now.

Tired of people putting their hands on my stomach and asking about a baby that isn't coming (this has happened waaay more than I care to admit!)

Tired of feeling tired ALL.THE.TIME.

Tired of clothes not fitting the way they are supposed to (let me be clear, I do not care about the SIZE or NUMBER, just that it fits, oh, and that I don't have to buy new clothes. AGAIN.)

I could go on and on, but I'm sure there are those of you out there that understand how I feel. I'm almost as heavy now as I was when I had Gabriel (and I gained about 60 lbs during that pregnancy!), and not having a baby to show for it really is making me feel gross.

Anyways....I'm starting Weight Watchers I will try to post new recipes that I try and update as I go along. Guess I thought by posting this I would have some sort of accountability, we'll see how that works out!  ;)
