Diet Week 1

I'm half heartedly starting my diet... lets call it healthy eating and portion control rather than a diet. Diet sounds awful when I'm breast feeding. I weighed myself last week and came in at 14 stone 8oz, which was only 3lb heavier than when I got my positive pregnancy test.

Well... today, just 7 days later, I am 13 stone 8oz! A whole stone loss from last week, and 11lb lighter than positive test day!

I'm not kidding myself that I have shed a stone in fat in just one week, clearly I haven't - and it would not have been healthy or safe if I had. I can only assume that most of this is milk (last weekend my milk came in and my boobs were as big as my head! Now they are more normal) and the water retention I still had in my legs and feet.

Regardless of what that lost stone was though, it's gone! And I am lighter now than before I was pregnant. A lot lighter! I have a nice round 50lb to shift now to get to my ultimate goal (super skinny me with a BMI of 24). And I'm not really eating any differently at the moment, a bit more fruit maybe (WW says breastfeeding mums should have 8 a day, not 5) but that's all.

I wonder how I'll do this week......?

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
