Yesterday I strapped the same amount of weight I have lost in the last two months in a mei tai and took my walk. It was brutal. She had a fever and wouldn't let me put her down. It is hard to believe I used to carry this much weight every moment of the day!My loss for the last two weeks is 2lbs.
It has been a challenge. Last Friday we left at 4am for a 6hr trip, so I didn't weigh in... In the past 14 days I have made many good choices and compromised on multiple occasions to the best available. My goal was not to gain overall. The first weekend we were dinner guests three nights in a row. There was also a brunch baby shower & church potluck. During the week I had house guests for 3 days, and then over the 2nd weekend we traveled to Ohio, were house guests for 3 days, attended a wedding, drove home and I was involved in the food portion of a funeral at church on Monday. The children have had the flu one after another this week, and the baby had a febrile seizure last night. I know I gained some during the process, but I chose not to weigh in until this morning after 3 days of "normal" food choices.
I would say that I successfully negotiated a good chunk of life. The weight loss is a bonus.
