lbsgoner's Journal, 15 January 2013

I weighed myself this morning and the good news was I saw the number 146.5. The not so good news is that I hardly ate yesterday because I was upset. (In fact, I need to change my dinner food diary because I only ate half.) I'm sure my weight will bounce back up tomorrow a couple pounds. I weigh myself periodically between the weigh-ins I post and I know that I am heading down not up. My weight loss goal is to average a half pound a week which is realistic for someone my age and size. I've lost 10.5 pounds (if I believe the 146.5) in eight weeks so the rate is not too fast.
When you have toddlers they consume your every moment. They are busy, busy, busy. They create laundry by breathing and your schedule is their schedule for sleeping. You get tired and worn out at some point and you take it to your friends and ask "How long will this last". And your friends tell you that it won't last forever, hang on. Then they tell you that you will look back and wish that it had lasted forever. So true. In this weight loss journey i am feeling the struggle yet I feel the richness of the experience with my FS buddies is rewarding me in so many ways. Echo.

You are doing amazing! You're keeping your GROSS carbs so low, and your weight loss is fantastic. I'm working at keeping NET carbs low and the loss is slower. May try your approach for a week and see what happens. Yes, the toddlers stage is tiring - can't say I every wished it would last forever, even looking back. BEST is being Grandma to toddlers and sending them home with their Mom!
