Best Laid Plans.....

Thank you for your comments lately - you guys really help to keep me going!

Well I am definitely going to stick with them this time. I think I may have figured out my gain as well, I have been eating too many points. I get  got 10 extra points because I am nursing. I found in the beginning I was losing too quickly so I kept eating them even when we started giving Grace solid food. It says I should not be losing more than about 1.5 pounds per week to not hurt my milk supply. I found that I was losing too quickly so I kept eating them. Well we have been giving her more food so I should really have been cutting that down to 5 extra points per day. I am really excited to go to the meeting tomorrow and learn the new plan. I am going to use my weight from yesterdays WI as my "starting" weight.

I spent alot of time thinking about what i want and how I am going to get there. I had a goal to be out of the 170's by Christmas...well that isn't going to happen. I am going to change that to January 8th. That is just over 8 pounds in 6 weeks, this I can do. I need to work hard over Christmas and pick up the slack when my SS class stops for the holidays (Dec.14). My plan is to track and get a minimum of 30 minutes activity everyday. I will have no days off. I need to make sure I keep moving and not let this get the better of me. I need this, it is amazing how 2 seconds on the scale made me feel. I know happiness isn't a number on the scale but at this point it is a big part of it for me. I just don't feel like myself in this body - time to change.


  1. I totally understand getting wrapped up in a number on the scale, I continue to do it after telling myself over and over that I won't let it define me. If what your doing now isn't working, I think altering your plan is a great idea! To get different results, we have to do something different. Sending hugs!
