    I do plan to walk with my mom or even by myself. I use to love walking but after kids I just never have the time. I usually listen to an audiobook so it makes it fun for me.

    Cews hope you meet your goal! I plan to walk during my lunch break when I go back in 2 weeks. Be nice not to have someone attached to me, heating me up even more.



    Well I gained some so I'm hoping it's just water weight. I'll still go by today's weight, 186.6.

    Household is starting to get better, yay! All of us ended up getting the cold.

    Glad all of you are starting to feel better. Thats always good news. A house full of sick people is the worst.

    As for me... I am officially in the 150's!!! Im still 159.6 as of this morning. Considering I was at 160 for 3 weeks I am SOOOOO happy to finally have dropped that pound.

    Congratulations cews and happy birthday!!! Food porn pics of that bday cake please ;)

    I've been working at hubby's shop this week and i'm amazed how my appetite has actually ramped up while i'm working. No idea why! I feel like i sit more when i'm there (i help with the front desk) but WOW i get so ravenous! I was still 167.2 this morning but i feel like that'll change soon enough (for the worse lol).

    Had a great Birthday weekend and ate a ton of crap! Weight still below 160 so I am happy! I feel like I am in a rut though. Need to change something soon so that I start losing again. Might try walking but honestly not sure when I have the time....

    Cews great on staying in 150s! I hate freaking plateaus. Best of luck getting through it.

    Gigs I'm much more hungry with my desk job than when I was on the road. I was too busy to eat and/or I didn't want to stop at fast food every day.


    AFM I've been craving chocolate so bad. It's like a freaking pregnancy craving, tested last week out of curiousity (bfn). I fixed a low cal chocolate cake yesterday. 200 cal per slice (12 slices total). It was okay but not hitting the spot. I really want a warm gooey browny with ice cream and chocolate syrup on it.... *drools*

    Yea, those plateaus really suck. I was 160 for 3 weeks but at the same time I wasn't really working out much after being sick, my mom coming in and taking almost a week off after because I hurt my ribs. It just stinks that I was on a good roll and then it all just came to a halt. Im going to try my best to get to 155 (and hopefully LOWER!) by the time I go to my moms next month.

    BTW here is the picture of my cake... it was much better because my DS helped make it. <3

    How are you ladies doing?

    So not sure what's going on with me today... I feel like Im about to have a massive panic/anxiety attack. Im feeling depressed which is NOT normal for me but I do have the anxiety feeling so I think the two are intertwined for some reason. I have no reason to feel depressed but the anxiety for me can come out of nowhere. I did my workout but didn't push myself at all. I think when DH gets home I will retreat to my room and take a bath and see if it helps. Its just weird that it came out of nowhere today... Just wanted to get it off my chest... :sad1:

    Cews I've actually been battling anxiety recently, too! Hence my absence. Hope yours is better and if not that it gets better for us both :hugs: that's all i'm going to say because talking about it makes it worse for me :X

    I did end up gaining weight last week and into the weekend, but as of this morning i'm back at 167.2. Still 3 lbs away from winning the bet. MIL told me yesterday she can't afford a pay out right now and wants to barter instead by cleaning our house (she used to do it professionally). I am definitely taking her up on that! I just cannot get on top of basic chores recently.

    Fluek i was having BAAAAD sweets cravings this past week, too! But i just had my period so i did not suspect pregnancy, though i did think about how that's what it felt like! Have you gotten your cycles back yet?

    Im the same way about anxiety. It just sucks and is so hard to describe to people that don't have it. Thankfully I have yet to come across someone that tells me its all in my head. The worst though are the ones that "have it" for the attention. Ive even had a friend that claimed she had it but told me she fakes it to get out of work. I feel like its those people that make it so much harder for those that actually suffer from it. I really hope yours gets better soon too!

    Im not there yet but today was a little better until I had to take my dog to the vet. Was told something that I think was utter BS just to get my money. Basically I am taking my dog with us (a yorkie) and was told that I had to shell out about $70 (each way) for this certificate that states she is well enough to fly even though the website (alligent air) specifically states that I DON'T need this. I tried to tell the lady but she didn't listen. Also, she wanted to charge me over $200 for 4 vaccines. There is a place near me that I can get all of them for $55 so yea, not happy at all. I left and won't be going back.

    DS#1 and #2 both had a doctors appointment today and all went well! Both are growing and at a good weight but on the smaller side weight wise. DS#2 was below 5% at his 12 month appointment so that was great news. Doctor is concerned that DS#2 isn't talking yet but he's only 17 months old. He says a few words... mama, dada, baba (bubba) and knows what those words mean but she wants me to contact a speech therapist to come and have a session with him. I personally feel she is jumping the gun a bit.

    Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I had pizza tonight just because I honestly didnt give a crap and just needed some comfort food. It was delish too! A place called Toppers Pizza and I had the Hot Honey Pizza.... DROOLS!!!! Salami, JalapeƱos, red onion and drizzle some warm honey on it... I never would have thought to put Honey on pizza. I also added some Tabasco but I seriously put it on everything already.

    Wow that pizza sounds interesting and delicious. I love red onion on just about any food! Sometimes i pickle it just to have at the ready in my fridge. It's great on tacos!

    Sorry the vet ripped you off. But yay for the kids doing well! I think your guy is spot on with the speech. If he's saying a few things with intent I'd say he's on the right track. Personally, my first born was a super early talker and has speech issues. My second was much later and now talks like a champ. He turned 2 in may and has a ton of words down, sentences, and in this past week has begun trying to sing the alphabet. So yeah don't worry!

    Btw that cake looks divine...

    Cews so sorry for anxiety attack and depression. Do you take any meds for it? I hope it passes soon though. I hope you took some "you" time.

    I think it's too early to be concerned about speech . Glad to hear they are both growing well.

    I'd never thought of honey on pizza. I love putting hot sauce on things. Especially omelettes :)

    Gigs I'm so sorry you've been having anxiety too. As for weight gain. It's okay, it happens and I think sometimes we need to just give in. The hard part is not letting giving in happen all or most of the time. I think logging my calories has really helped me not continue to give in. I've really been thinking of paying someone to clean the house for me once or twice a month. S is just so clingy and I can't keep my eyes off V. I'll see how finances are once I go back to work. Or maybe just have my mom watch them while I clean, head phones on so I can "be alone".

    It was hillarious when I talked with DH about my sweet cravings, he was like, "are you pregnant?!" I tested the day before that and bfn. To answer your question, nope my cycles haven't returned. I haven't noticed fertile cm either. Not complaining as I don't miss AF.

    AFM lost again. 1.5lbs so 185.2 :)

    I made these peanut butter brownies from delish.com. OMG they are heavenly.!! Totally worth caving. I think I'm just depressed about returning to work Thursday. As much as I gp crazy at times with them, I'd love to stay home. S is really having bottle trouble :(

    I hope you sort out the bottle situation soon :/ is delish.com for healthy recipes? I guess I could go look but eh.

    Back up to 167.8 this morning :shrug: who knows. With my body it could mean a bunch of weight might drop off soon. I hope!

    I found a pic of me soon-ish after baby. I have no idea what weight I was but guessing maybe 185ish? 190? I took a comparison shot today but i still intend to take another in a different shirt. Anyway it looks like the majority of my loss came from T & A :rofl:

    I don't take pills or anything for my anxiety. I do self medicate with legal edibles when it gets really bad. The depression was a new one for me though. I don't get depressed really. Ill get a little down sometimes but this was so much more than down.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE tabasco! I literally carried a bottle in my purse when I was pregnant with each of my boys because I craved it so bad. More so with DS#1. I count get enough spicy food. DS#2 I was more careful because I had bad acid reflux. I put it on everything but ice cream, cake, cookies, etc... its really good on popcorn though... *drools*

    Today is better. I feel much more upbeat but I am struggling like mad with my workout. I just don't want to do them at all. I know its because Im still not myself and next week will be hard as DH is leaving again. Only one week this time...

    Thanks cews! I'm definitely fitting into pants better. I can get into my "thinner" shorts, but i muffin top...but before i couldn't get them past my ass so progress? I can also now fit into one of my fave pair of gray shorts :thumbup: couldn't button them before.

    I can't remember if i told you ladies but i bought a goal dress for a wedding in October. I'll have to get a pic up of that...but i have my doubts of if i will be able to ever get in it! It looks so small...

    I went down a pound. Happy with that but wish it was a little more. Oh well. I ended up hurting my ankle Saturday night and not sure how much I will be able to work out this week but I don't want to fall too far off track. I was legit surprised I even lost a pound. I wasn't eating bad but just didn't think I had lost that much. Weight loss has slowed down a lot lately.

    Gigs i can see a difference in your core as well. Oh and the brownies were nothealthy at all.

    Cews the closer you are to a healthy weight r in healthy range i think weight loss slows. 1 lb in a week is great :)

    Will weigh tomorrow.
