Okay! It is not working!!!!!

I have been doing so good for a while with eating and exercise. After 2 months. 2 MONTHS!!!! I lost only 5 pounds. 5 pounds!!!

Okay, for you people that are super positive I know this is good at least better than nothing. But the cupcakes and Diet Dr. Pepper are calling my name now. I mean I really thought I would have lost more.

Anyway, I know that I slacked a few times but I also did very good a lot of this time. I have to take a change of direction. I have regained 2 pounds after finding out. I am not for sure why I do that . I just quit for a week and half and binge. I eat because I am not losing weight. How weird.

So, I have to get back on the ball. I do have Thyroid Disease and this has made it so difficult for me to lose weight. I have been battling this for 2 years now.

Tomorrow, I am going to a nutritionist. I am really excited. Just to get some new motivation and see what she says. I am sure I have read and know most of what she will say. But sometimes hearing it direct from a person can really motivate you.

I have a lot of difficulty staying motivated. How do you stay motivated????

Monday :)

I had someone ask me what Pero is so I thought I'd share. I really enjoy it. I put a bit of sugar and some skim milk in mine. Mmmm

You can see by the nutritional facts it's a pretty good drink. I like to drink herbal tea or Pero at night when I'm really craving goodies.

I thought I'd also show what I made for dinner tonight. The kids hated it. Caleb even spit out the one bite he took into the garbage. So... it was pb&j for them (with no bed-time snacks) and I ate up my spinach bake like a good girl :)

I've been doing ok on my food. I need to get into the exercise habit, but after last time when I hurt myself I haven't wanted to risk it. My goal last week was to squeeze 90 minutes of exercise into my busy schedule and I only got 30 minutes... at least it's better than the week before, which was 0. This week I'm gonna try and improve.
