They say the last 10 pounds are the hardest to lose, but what if you're only trying to lose 10 pounds? Are you in for a long journey? Last week, before LL's sister Linda came to town, LL and I decided it was time to diet and lose our baby fat. Yep, I gained weight as well, probably due to the combination of sleeping erratically and LL being home so I could cook for her.....plus some lack of restraint on my part. So LL wanted to do Jenny Craig to jump start our diets and I agreed. It's not cheap, like $100 a week per person for food, but they do teach you portion control and what you really NEED to get by in a day. Unfortunately, though their sodium levels are heart healthy and following the RDA, they are still way more than I ingest on a daily basis. That has caused my ear to ring a bit and I have to be careful. To that end, I've started cooking some of my own small portion, low sodium, high protein breakfasts. So far, I'm down 3+ pounds (looking to lose 13) and LL is down 5. It's a good start!
Now for the pictures of Marissa! Happy two month birthday little Sweety!!!
This was at the doctors office on Friday when Marissa was getting her first set of shots. How gut wrenching! She was sitting there all nice, sweet, relaxed and WHAM!! Here come the three shots and the wailing and, for the first time, actual tears. Ugh. So tough to watch.
On the plus side, LL was so smart to bring a bottle of milk and was able to calm her down a bit with it after the nurse was done. Later on, at home, poor Marissa would be sleeping in our arms and would periodically let out a wail, like she was dreaming about the shots. So hard to see. She seems much better today though and hopefully still trusts us to look out for her best interest.
