Re: The 25lb Challenge January thread

this month will be a little difficult, but not too bad. Sunday of course is Super bowl. then the 10th is a bday party for the kids. I'll do my best to eat well.

I think I'm going to give up dairy and sugar for Lent. I'm not catholic, but I don't mind using it as an excuse to give up something for 40 days.

This exactly also!! More fussy than usual the past 2 days, wants to be held constantly and everything is wrong.... I know if she would sleep she would be so much happier, but can't convince her of that lol getting to sleep can take hours and hours and I don't have the patience most of the time. So, she stays up until I know she will fall asleep fairly easily. This means I have 0 time to get anything done, which leads to let patience-and the cycle continues. It is so comforting to know that I am not alone

So I missed weigh in last week, so this loss is over 2 weeks but mainly just due to being sick and not eating so I fully expect to go back up a bit next week but we'll see.

Sorry you've been so sick! That's miserable.

DS has upped his nursing again just enough to stall my weight loss out. I just keep thinking this is only temporary. He will wean someday lol.

ETA: last weigh in empty stomach was 165.8. This morning after eating and drinking I was 166.2. So no gain at least lol. But I measured hips and waist and lost 1 inch in my hips and 1/2 inch in my waist. Thank you 30 day shred lol!
That's great to lose inches!!

Anyway, i weighed in at 143.6 this morning. A slight loss only. It sucks that its going so slow. Today we're going to a carnival so not sure what lunch will be
I have heard of lots of women not losing well until they wean. I know nursing burns calories, but it seems like your body is also holding onto fat so you can keep up the milk. I wouldn't suggest weaning, but you might have to wait it out. At least you're building good habits and can hopefully drop pounds fast after weaning.

I have the hardest time running on little sleep. I did it fine in high school/college, but taking care of a demanding kid is a whole other challenge when you're already feeling crappy.

When A starts throwing a giant fit or needs to have control of the situation I ask her to go sit on the bottom step until she is calmed down. Sort of like time out, but she can get up when she is calmed down and ready to do what she needs to do. We call it having a "snit" for some reason lol This helps most of the time, and gives us both a breather. However, this does nothing for the all day whining haha
