I'm down 1 more pound, and this time, I'm happy about it. I did good for about half the week, and though I stayed on target with my points all week, I'm just not eating right. I need to meal plan or something, and I definitely need to resign myself to having fruit or veggies for snacks. Also, it's important that I remember first off that I'm breastfeeding, so I have to eat more. Secondly, "slow and steady wins the race". I cannot expect weight that took years (and pregnancies) to put on to just suddenly fall off because I measured out how much cereal I ate. This is going to take time. Though I had a loss goal, I did not have a time frame. Maybe it will help, so my goal is to lose the first twenty pounds by July 1st. That's 22ish weeks from when I started. It seems so far away, but it's a realistic time frame. I'm also hoping to add in some exercise soon. I want to wait until my milk supply is more established before doing that though.
My kids are adorable, and they sure know how to touch my heart. The other day, out of the blue, Kadence told Luis (and thankfully I was in earshot), "When I grow up, I want to be just like my mommy." Ugh...crying as I type it! And Gavin, my sweet Gavin responded to my "I love you." He said, "I uh you. Mommy." Then Luis said, "What about Daddy?" to which he replied, "I uh you. too. Daddy." (he pauses like that between words). We then asked him "What about Kay Kay?" and he said with a smile, "Noooooooooooooooo". Hmmm, maybe I should have saved that for "Saturday's top five laughs".
Dylan is growing so fast. He's starting to become much more alert, and he's smiling a lot more- especially at Kadence. It was the same way with Gavin. When he was a baby, she was the one who got him to laugh for the first time, and still can get him to laugh like no one else can. My boys love thier big sister (most of the time!).
