I would have killed DH! I love candy. I can convince myself those little packets do not have many calories. Even though it is a lie....LOL!

Your doing great. Staying away from my favorites is how I start any diet regime. I do time with resisting what my weaknesses are till it is easy, then I alter my diet. Baby steps work best for me. Getting used to one thing at a time.

AF sucks. I always have like 4 pounds of water weight when she is around. I have not gotten her back yet, but it should be anytime. I usually get her back 3 months PP even while nursing and I am 4 months.

I am lucky that ice cream does not agree with me. When I crave it I remind myself of the out come the last time I ate it.

I am not sure if it is bad for dieting or not. If you eat it as one meal in reasonable portions and it is lowfat, I am sure it is fine. I do not do dairy on my diet as dairy makes me bloated and gain, plus I have a sensitivity.


Great news for me today! I am down to 159.6!!!! I got out of the 160s. I hope it stays that way! I am sure I will get water gain at some point, but today the scale was kind to me and showed me that wonderful number!
