And it really happened..

Still in shock at losing 1 pound over the Thanksgiving break. I am now down to 124.2!!!!!! I could add more exclamation points, but I'll leave it at that.

It is doable...I stuck with turkey and veggies mostly. I did have a roll and some stuffing. When it came to desserts I just had a few bites of the things that I really really wanted and you know what? That was enough, sweet tooth satisfied and no pain in the gut. Well, actually there was a little pain in the gut.

We had a fun Thanksgiving that started EARLY. Jeebs, Cagey and I got up to run a turkey trot down in Eagle Mountain. It was very low key and really fun. I'm making everybody do it next year. Then we raced through breakfast and getting ready for the day. We made it to South Jordan just after 11 for bowling with fam. It was fun, but wow, I am a terrible bowler. We were done bowling by around noon and headed to Tim and Sally's to smell food and play games. After the games were done, we just sat and smelled food while I contemplated eating my own young. I. Was. Starving. Maybe that's where the 1 pound fell off? I'll take it. Happy Thanksgiving! On to baking season and praying I don't eat any of it :)

Back on the losing train, (I hope)

After Loo was born I pretty easily and quickly went back down to 5 pounds above my pre-pregnancy weight. I thought it was going to come off eventually, nursing...weaning...hormones, you know the drill. But, here we are 2 and a half years later and I was still hovering around 128, on a good week I'd go down to 126. SOOOOOOOOoooo after upping my workout routines lifting ALL THE WEIGHTS I HAD, nada. nothing. zilch. So, here I am trying to get back into losing mode, if only for a month or two to lose those dadgum pounds and maybe a few more just so my post-5 baby stomach doesn't drive me insane.

This past week I did pretty well. I went from 128.4 to 126.6 and I call that a win. So this week is the test. I really don't have any desire to cheat or eat treats or anything because my stomach has been giving me heck with all the little "tastes" I've had of the endless treats lately. I have found a secret new weapon. I LOVE hot chocolate and I HATE hot almond milk. It tastes like cardboard box. But, now I've figured out how to cover up the cardboard...Torani sugar free syrups!! The sugar free brown sugar cinnamon is my favorite, but we also have peppermint which is a close second. If you're looking for a good hot chocolate alternative...just try the syrups in your sugar free chocolate almond milk :) you're welcome

I'll report back next week to see if anything actually comes off this week. I haven't been below 126 in a LOOOOOOONNNNGGGG time and it's so close I can taste it, (and it taste like starvation).
