Eating Willy-Nilly? Nope...not me

It's working! I have no idea why I feel kinda shocked that eating well and tracking calories is working. Silly right? I've had a great week with my eating. Actually, I had a difficult time even hitting 1800 calories most days (while eating good foods). If I were eating crap it'd be no problem I'm sure :) Next week I'll be hopping on the tm in the morning to boost my fat burn. Hopefully I can still hit my 185 goal by Jan 1st. I'm not sure if it'll happen or not. Either way, if I do or don't, I'm on the right track. Monday morning I'll weigh and give you all an me more incentive to behave myself today. We have a family dinner out tonight and then an "after party" without the kids (except my new pumpkin...she gets to tag along with momma and daddy). I'm going to eat light this morning and adjust my calories for the 2 or 3 beers I plan on consuming this evening.
Hubby cracked me up yesterday by telling me that he was going to research how many calories I needed while breastfeeding. He told me I couldn't just eat "willy-nilly" and if I wanted to lose weight we'd switch to formula since Lia is the the most important. I had to explain that I'd done several days of research and figuring to come up with my current "plan" and that I can do both...lose weight and nurse. Last week and the week before I was all "willy-nilly" and my milk suffered. This week has been great... yay :) His response "Oh, okay, I didn't know you'd done that already." Ahhh, gotta love 'em!
For my own curiosity I'm going to get on the scale this morning. We reset the scale yesterday (I had it adjusted a couple pounds lighter. I know, I know... cheating!) Hopefully it'll motivate me not to overindulge. Next week I'm ordering a new digital scale that measures body fat and water, and keeps me honest. Merry Christmas to me LOL.
Anyway, that's all I've got for now. Have a great weekend everyone!

I am always shocked when I see "it working!"LOL! I don't know if it will ever be "Oh, another pound done." For some reason I have it in my mind my body is against me losing weight...and that if I eat I will gain-no matter what!

BUT the pounds are coming off. Slowly that's fer sure - but it's working...and I'm not hungry! If anything I always feel like I'm eating too much. When I look over what I've eaten I see that I haven't overeaten. I guess I'm still getting used to eating right: until I'm satisfied. And when I eat "right" my body responds. I don't have to beg, plead, STARVE, go without, etc. for my body to let go of the fat. It doesn't want to hang onto what it doesn't need anymore than I want to hang onto it!

You're doing great girl!

Hi Tiffany - I'm Tiffany - nice to meet you ;)

I'm currently pregnant with baby #2. I was losing fantastically and really in my groove when I got pregnant. We had planned it, but it was still a surprise. I guess I thought since I have PCOS that I might have fertility issues. No such problem when low carb is rocking your world!

Glad to have found you!
