Been in & out of 3FC for a while - I had a series of injuries but was able to bounce back and refocus on myself. I've lost over 15lb so far, slow & steady as I am nursing. Now that little girl is eating more solid foods though I am not as stressed over dropping my supply. I am still keeping an eye on my milk, but with a nice stash and a backup of food for her it's not as stressful as when she was exclusively breastfed.

I agree!! Maybe we should start a new one?

Either way...
I'm following a calorie count of 2400 daily! It feels like so much! I've maintained my current weight (177) for almost 2 weeks. I'm thinking of cutting my calorie count back by 100 or 200, so I can see a small loss as I am currently over weight.

Anyway today...

Breakfast:2 eggs, 2 pieces dry toast, coffee with creamer
Morning "snack": Pumpkin spice latte from starbucks
Lunch: Pita with grilled chicken, spinach, walnuts, crasins, and poppy seed dressing, all measured out of course, so time consuming!
Early dinner: grilled chicken, egg noodles with olive oil, and steamed carrots
Night snack: bowl of cereal, honey nut cheerios w/ milk.

I drink water with all my meals other than the coffees.

Still healing from chest cold. Hoping to be able to walk a little tomorrow. I have a 5k Saturday so I NEED to be well enough to run. The last time I worked out was Friday, did 3.2 miles prepping for the 5k. Felt congested later that day and it was all down hill from there!!

It's the first time I have come across this thread so I thought I would share with you what I ate yesterday:

Day 1793
Breakfast
Bran flakes and banana 240
Yoghurt 102
Lunch
Bacon butties (4 slices of bread and bacon) 532
Yoghurt 102
Chocolate 80
Dinner
Chicken casserole 545
Oreo 90
Yoghurt 102

I am calorie counting so that I can see how my calories are coming together over the months and had 1793 calories yesterday. And I am generally averaging 1700-2000 a day depending on what I am doing and craving and I am 34 weeks pregnant at the moment.

I was originally doing 1800 calories. I figured what I would eat to lose weight at my current weight then added 300. But I was starving all the time!! So I checked some webpages and their math recommended like 2700! I decreased it to 2400 on my own. And honestly I go over some days because by night time even after my after dinner snack my stomach is growling. Before I started counting calories I was gaining steadily. I can only imagine how much I was eating!

Although I have been sick the past week, I am also running (run/walking really) so I eat back those calories. I don't feel that active otherwise, but I guess I'm pretty busy chasing after other kids.

I am doing WW, so I'm not counting calories, but I have 35 points (7 extra for BFing). I tried to count calories when I was pregnant and I was eating around 2500/day I think... I was hungry ALL the time and on bedrest after my 2nd trimester, so I ate pretty horribly... hence the WW now, LOL.

Here's what I had yesterday:

Breakfast: 2 tbsp peanut butter on 2 slices whole wheat bread, drizzle of honey, coffee w/ milk
Snack: none (late breakfast)
Lunch: Big chicken salad w/ croutons, banana
Snack: Yogurt w/ honey
Dinner: Ground beef dish made with green beans, tomatos, onions & garlic (not sure what it's called)
Dessert: 1 piece of dark chocolate

I am so excited because I finally joined a gym and on Monday I go in for my fitness assessment and then I will have a personalized plan put together for my fitness goals. Plus I will be doing Zumba once a week, my fav workout!
