Back after the holidays

Life is just too hectic right now with the holidays and four small children under age 7. I hope to return to becoming a better me once the new year rolls in. I haven't forgotten about any of you and I hope you understand that I just needed to take a breather from some stuff and readjust my attitude about certain things in life.

Breastfeeding :)

I know your wondering "what the heck does that have to do with losing weight??"

I had to test something out the last two weeks. I ate practically whatever I wanted without counting calories or carbs. On 11/24 I weighed 175.5 and today I weigh 174.8. It seems that since I started breastfeeding, I can't gain weight:)I thought the whole thing was a myth but apparently, its working out in my favor. My test this week is to work out 4 days and not count calories. If I lose weight this week, I will continue on that track until I wean my daughter from breastfeeding. The only downside is that I can't really watch my calorie intake because I could lose my milk supply. So this is the way it will have to be until she turns 1 next October.
