To be continued...

I'll be taking a break from Weight Watchers. Why would I do such a thing? Well...

This was planned, but not quite expected (yet!). As a PCOS gal, we tried for 2 years to have our 5 1/2 year old, tried for 2 years when he was 1, with no success. This was our first month of trying this time! I could not believe it happened so fast, but I have a feeling being down 45+ lb. helped speed things along! I only gained 25 lb. with my first, so here's hoping I'm as smart about what I eat with this one!

Just Say No!

So, no 50 yet. Not even close. Reverse actually. I'm at 46 currently. Grr! I need to JUST SAY NO to candy, cookies, etc. and eating when I'm not hungry. This should be so obvious to me, but has become a MAJOR struggle for me lately for some reason! Coupled with that, I haven't been getting up to exercise in the mornings either. I'm going to focus hard on my motivation this week, but any tips for keeping strong against temptation are certainly welcome!!

Where has the time gone? My laptop broke, so I tend to only jump on our giant sized computer for email and facebook, and have neglected blogging--both reading and writing! While I thought I would reach this goal a few months ago, I am about a week away from hitting the big 5-0. Right now I am at 49.2 pounds lost! I really thought I'd reach this by New Year's, but impulsive holiday eating helped me stay stagnant for awhile. And then I began to exercise more, and while I haven't taken off much weight from that, I have lost a whole clothing size! So, I started at 4X tops and 24 bottoms and am now usually in 18 bottoms and 2X tops (depending on who made them!) and even fit into one XL tshirt that I have (not drying it!).
