I did it, YAY for me.

Well, I joined Weight Watchers this morning.  And I'm starving.  But it'll pass.  I remember the last time I did this the first 3 days were bad and then my body adjusted and I felt great.  Hopefully, this time there will be no possibility of me getting pregnant (I need a certified letter from the urologist before you touch me, babe!) so I can finish what I'm starting.  My goal is 30 pounds, that'll put me at 115, but I'd be completely happy at 125.  That was what I weighed when I got married.  115 was high school and let's face it, who weighs that anymore?  But it's my goal and I want to be done by the end of the year.  That puts me at losing 1.5 pounds a week until the end of the year.  If I can get the time to exercise, I'll be home free.  I lost 7 lbs in three weeks before!

So anyway, I've done it and I'm proud of myself.  As long as I keep with it.

I'm planning a beach weekend with my best friend in a few weeks.  We're just going for a couple of nights but I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to it.  After Hubby's hiking trip and his time away, I approached him about going some where and he was quick to tell me I could.  It means he has to take time off, too, to stay with the kids, but I appreciated his willingness to do it.  I need a weekend away with my girlie friends as hubby put it.  ;oD  Just as much as the company, I'm looking forward to the sleep!  New baby is still only eating once at night, but that still interrupted sleep which equals exhaustion.

I've also stopped breast feeding.  My goal was 6 weeks, but just like the other two, New Baby started acting as though breast milk was hurting her more than helping.  She was obviously having tummy troubles and wasn't feeling good.  Of course now, she's still having tummy troubles but they don't seem to be as severe as it was since weaning.  My hormones have been on a roller coaster since I quit last week, too.  I thought at first I was getting some depression, but that only lasted a day or two.  Now I feel better, but all the crazy things I had going wrong with my body before I ever got pregnant and PCOS was in control...well, they're back.  I haven't had a single problem with eczema in almost 4 years and all of a sudden my whole body is getting little breakouts.  I'm really hoping that at least my cycles will continue to be regular now.  Everything else I can deal with.  I do NOT want to have to do provera therapy again or have to get on birth control to keep my cycles regular.  That would totally suck after the Hubby got fixed so I didn't have to stay on hormones!

Maybe losing the weight will help with some of that!

Look for Keedem Tea Biscuits. They might be in the International or Jewish section of your supermarket.
They're like a $1 something a package and 5 cookies are like a point. (It'll fill you up!)
