I got this maintenance thing down PAT! Now I just need to step it up a notch. I’m stuck in night time snack mode (she says as she munches here popcorn.) I could easily cut out 200-500 calories a day be just skipping that snack.
Honestly, I’m just not making weight loss a priority right now. With the half around the corner (I got a morning run in today. yay!!) a 1st grader, and a 6 month old to take care off, I’m not concerned with the scale. I’m just not.
MAN it sounds weird to say that. I can’t remember a time I WASN’T preoccupied with my weight.
In a weird way, I’m confident that I will lose the last few pounds when I do make it a priority. Which I will when the half is behind me and I wean Little Bean.
My goal was to nurse him for 6 months and (if you can believe it) he turns 6 months next week!! I’m not in any rush to stop breastfeeding, but it would be nice to have my body back 100%. I remember feeling this way with Little Guy too. There’s comes a point when I’m just finished.
He’s doing great with the solids (have you seen our adventures? click here to see him in action) and I have some frozen breast milk. Right now he’s nursing 3-4 times a day and sometimes once at night. Over the next few weeks I’ll be increasing his solid meals and nursing only on demand. I’ll let him set the pace.
Sorry, didn’t mean to make this a post on parenting but like I said, this is my priority at the moment as it should be. :)
