Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

Good morning friends!

How do you like the morning posting?

I kind of like it. It's different. I'm not sure if I'll keep it up. We'll see.

I made it through day two yesterday of counting calories. I resisted the donut that was in our house yesterday and split it up between the kids. Everything was going well until we started making cookies for my husband's work.

I ate two whole cookies and probably the equivalent of three cookies in cookie dough. I accidentally got mint chocolate chips for the cookies instead of regular chocolate chips, which oddly enough my husband really liked.

Remember he doesn't like mint chocolate chip?

Then, our daughter accidentally added 1 tbl of baking soda instead of 1 teaspoon. My husband still liked the cookie, but, well, I'm not so sure I do. (even though I ate a bunch of the dough..ha, ha...the dough actually tasted better than the cookie)

So, I don't plan on having any today.

Not that I'm trying to restrict my calories or anything this first week of counting calories.

I actually gained back a pound from the two pounds that I lost yesterday morning. That's why this pregnancy thing is so strange. The weight tends to fluctuate oddly.

But I'm still sticking to my 70 days of counting calories. Everything I eat will be written down.

I made a lot of healthy foods choices yesterday. Spinach salads, eggs, chicken breast, fruits and veggies.

We plan to make eight loaves of bread today with also some home made wheat noodles.

So, this post is meandering a bit. But today is day three of counting calories...the last day of the hardest part of starting. I can do all can do it!!!

And I'm still working on getting some pictures added.

Is anyone out there adding pictures to their calorie counting note books? or their WW notebook's? I'm trying to decided if my "dream" picture of me should be me...not pregnant...or of some slim and trim pregnant gal.

Ha, Ha, Maybe I'll do both!

Well, 69 days and counting.

Have a good one!

  1. Good work my friend! Mint chocolate chip cookies? And Daddy Rainmaker liked them? That is hilarious. Maybe he does like mint chocolate after all, no? I must say that for not wanting to do this whole calorie journal thing, I too, am making some smarter decisions. I have been on a chocolate chip kick. I don't why I keep buying them. (Next trip I will not be) I had been grabbing a handful here and there, not counting them and boy should I have been. I always go through phases where I start liking something and starting eating too much of it and the journal will help. Thanks for doing it too. You are helping me and you don't even know it!
