Diet's New Starting Point

I didn't do as badly as I thought I would over Christmas.

About half way through the holiday I had gained 4 lb, but by Sunday I had already lost 2 of those. So I am claiming a 2 lb Christmas gain, and a New Year starting point of 14 stone exactly!

I am struggling to get my commitment back to the diet after Christmas. I have really got my taste for sweet things and carbs back with a vengeance. And it's cold and wet outside which just makes me crave comfort food all the time too. I took my usual box of veggie sticks to work yesterday and really didn't want them. I was day dreaming about mashed potatoes. Warm. Soft. Creamy. Tasty. I had some for dinner! But I stayed within my pro points so that's ok.

Only being 2 lb heavier than before Christmas is a good thing. If I had gained loads of weight I would have been very disheartened and wanted to give up. But this is still very important. I want to get back below 14 stone, ideally loosing 2-3 lb, this week because I'm back at the doctors on Monday afternoon and I want to show progress on my weight.

I need to sort out some nice warm, filling, low point food to take to work for my lunches! Salad is not cutting it! It is ruddy cold in there, and I am acutely aware of how close the local fish & chip shop is with it's piping hot battered cod; chips and gravy; sausages and pies..... *drool*

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
