This post is really just me complaining and "talking" out loud. I know my husband, family and friends are so tired of me talking about weight. I can't help it. It has consumed me. I am 8-10 lbs heavier than I was last year at this time (I was still pumping). I work out six-seven days a week, usually seven and eat a pretty healthy diet. I just want to be happy.
I've been trying this awesome meal plan for the past 1.5 weeks and have followed it about 80%. I've only lost one pound, maybe only a half pound. Which makes me not want to continue if I could just eat the way I was before and stay where I was. This meal plan is mainly veggies, fruit, beans, and whole grains - limited dairy and meat. I've even cut out sugar/splenda in my morning coffee. That's huge!!! I feel great and haven't missed the sugar all that much (except at night).
When will I find my happy? Some days I think, "I look fine, I am healthy" Other days I am on the verge of tears bc my skinny pants are too tight.
On top of all my insecurities, the kiddos are acting nuts - good thing they are so stinkin cute! This Mom needs a major break!
