masm2 Thanks for the tip!!!! I'll check it out!!!!
haha Bethy OMG I can't believe you read my old journal
I was definitely one of those "I'm going to write here every day" people who wound up dropping the ball
The funny thing is that I was in GREAT shape back then! I gained a whopping 50 lbs with my pregnancy. This was the first weigh-in after the baby --when I went into labor I weighed in at 216 lbs, if you can believe it, which I think was dangerously heavy for someone with my frame and height (I'm only 5'3). But anyhoo... I weighed in at 153 (or was it 152?) on Monday, which is pretty heavy for me. My son is turning 3 in June, so I have lost almost 30 pounds in three years, which puts the whole thing in perspective...
But the funny thing is that the fear of the hometown comments are STILL a big motivating factor for me to big here! We've been back a few times since LO was born and I had to put up with the comments, so this time at least I can feel better about myself! I still haven't figured out what I'm going to do about the tortillas, though.. they have them with every meal!!!!
Oh, yeah, I guess I haven't mentioned we'll be in the Yucatan for three months... guess I can't complain about that
but I will have to eat lots of chayote and stay away from the tortillas, the rice, and the delicious, wonderful pastries from the local panaderias (sigh)...
I think the key with P2, actually all of the SB WOE, is exactly what you're describing, the ability to pick up after a slip. It's a way of eating, not a diet, right?
