Hey Misty, kids what else can you say?? I had something similar happen when I was pregnant and I heard the kid next door talking about the fat lady neighbour. Yeah it hurts. So far my ds hasn't said anything but I know it is coming. I hope I will be able to cope with it, maybe knowing that him saying something is inevitable will be some kind of preparation and it won't hurt so much.
Anyway, Misty you've gained. Deal with it and let's get on with it. WW works when you stick with it. I did it briefly for a few weeks and lost 16 lbs after ds was born but it is too expensive to my mind. Also counting stuff drove me nuts. Doesn't matter, do what works for you. If you can do it at home without going to meetings then do it but keep that speadsheet handy and log on everyday, several times a day if you have to! Better yet just keep the computer on all day and have your home page at 3FC so that you can check in often!
Checking in every day and even leaving a short post really does help I find. Also make up some signs you can tack around your kitchen, on the fridge, the cupboard that has the cookies in it. Just something simple with your goal weight and the date you are shooting for. Do you have any pics from when you were 18 you could have around too? Maybe that would help.
So add on another item to your commitment: I will log onto 3FC at least once a day if only for 2 minutes. Okay you've got 2 minutes during the day I know you do. In that 2 minutes write out a few lines, what you want to do, how your day went, what you could have done better or tell us what a great day you had and we'll tell you how proud of you we all are.
BTW, how do you know to the day how far away your b-day is??
