Plus, I know they were seriously salty. BUT it's not the end of the world. Will workout tonight and see where I am tomorrow. Kinda screwed my March goal though. On to April.

On a not scale related note... I am so baby crazy right now. It seems like EVERYONE on my facebook is pregnant or just had a baby or have a bunch of kids already. My 10 year high school reunion is coming up this August. I don't know... I love my life but I feel like there is something missing. Can anyone else relate? Again this isn't really a weight loss thing its more of an age thing.
I totally understand the baby crazy right now, I have two little ones and thought I was done until I saw my cousins brand new baby, and OMG what a sweetie pie. However, a little advise my husband and I didnt have our first until we had been married for almost 4 years and even though I had known him since I was 13, and dated since we were seniors in High School, Im glad we waited as long as we did. Of couse you only know when your ready and no one can tell you, but it takes time to get settled and comprehend the being married thing. Plus a baby is just a lot of stress, and the best thing in the whole word. Good Luck and Congrats on the upcoming wedding.

Dereksgirl - I have heard many people say the same thing you say about waiting. I just don't understand what about being married takes time to settle in to. I really don't feel like anything will change after we get married. We already live together, own a house together, ect. and act as if we are married already... not really sure what else will change. Of course, I really can't know that until after it happens lol! Plus, I really am worried about getting too old to have kids. We'd really like to have at least two kids and when we get married I will be 29 years old. I would totally regret waiting too long and not being able to have kids possibly at all. Either way, I think our plan is to wait a year after we get married before we start trying. I cannot wait to start a family but I don't want to rush this special time either. Thanks for your reply... that was an oldie!

Hey everyone! Weighed in this morning at 148.6. Got my official weigh in at Weight Watchers tonight... hope it sticks!

Ally- I totally hear you. I'm 25 and I'm only one of 3 of my friends that don't ALREADY have kids. My DH has been talking about wanting children within the next 2yrs but honestly I just don't feel ready. I'm to selfish right now and enjoy sleep lol. We just bought a puppy 2weeks ago..I'm hoping that'll buy me a couple years lol.

Wellll I had a big UH-OH last night. I had this new recipe planned to make for dinner. Allotted it in my calories thru out the day..get home start making it then my DH comes home with beer battered fish and seasoned fries...so what did I do? I finished making my healthy dinner and put it in the fridge and ate what he had! Ahhh

Hehe WeightForMe... it happens!! Gotta live your life. At least now you are all set for today. You're doing great... don't sweat it!

Back up a little to 149.0 this morning. Not sure why... maybe water. I had my official weigh-in at weight watchers yesterday. Down 1.8 in the past two weeks. Have .2 to go to get to my official 15lbs lost! Thats super exciting. I think only one pound after that is my 10% of my body weight lost too. Hoping to make it there by next week but expecting some difficulties this weekend with Easter and a 3 day weekend.

How much water does everyone drink each day? I think I need to do better with that.

I definitely need to do better with water. I started out drinking at least 64oz a day, but have slowly been drinking less and less. Some days I only get 16oz

Morning everyone! Gosh, I feel so excited today...have no idea why, just woke up in a great, sunny and positive mood (despite the drab weather). I can feel my body changing so I'm sure that is part of it. I've been doing the treadmill in the evenings (I just don't want to do 30DS lately) and it feels great.

I drink about 32-64oz of water a day (though 64oz is hard for me to do).

Hope everyone has a fabulous morning.

Ugh... I'm feeling so bloated today. And I have no idea why! I don't think I've eaten a lot of salt. I'm trying to drink a lot of water. Ew I feel uncomfortable. What do I do?

Ally- I've never posted photos before so we will see if this works. The first picture is the most recent at 10.5 months (he is a little over 11 months currently) where he is attempting to fit under my desk (he thinks he is still 30lbs). The second is at 8 months or so outside (he loves my itty bitty deck) and the third and fourth are when I first got him around 3 months of age. Bit of a growth spurt, no?

Not sure on the bloaty feeling, did you eat a lot of veggies? They always make me feel bloated. Good job on the water, it isn't easy to make sure you get enough.

Whoo, hoo, it worked. I'm not as challenged in technology as I thought I was. For good measure, here are two more at around 10.5 months and 9 months that give you a better sense of his size.

He's so cute!! What's his name? Sorry if you've shared it before. I can't remember! He's a big guy! How much does he weigh now?

Here are some pictures of my little boy Cody. Some when he was a baby and then last summer. He is 16 months old.

Cody is frigging-ADORABLE. What breed?

My guy's name is Rajah (and he prances around like a prince, true to the meaning of the name). I'm not sure what he weighs now but it is probably between 90-100lbs. He's a monster to say the least and not done growing/filling out.

Some guy, God bless his heart, actually said to me "Wow, he's bigger than you are" today. Not quite, but maybe one day!

I'm surprised you guys drink so little water! (Not saying that's bad, it's just different from me.) I drink 108 oz of water every day and I use to have up to 50% more but my nutritionist told me to keep it to about 3 L while I'm losing. I love water and I don't mind running to the restroom all the time.

SweetChicagoGal - Cody is a soft coated wheaten terrier. He's hypoallergenic and doesn't shed!

ERHR - You might not be saying its bad...But it IS bad!! I totally got to drink more water. I drank about 60 some oz yesterday and I feel much better today. I think I read that you are supposed to drink half of your body weight... so like 75oz a day for me! I don't really like water... I have to force it in a bit. I do like to add crystal light packets or give myself a goal like you can't have a diet soda unless you drink two bottles of water first hehe.

Weighed in again today at 149.0. Kinda getting used to that number. Planning to go to my Groove class tonight though and I usually get a great burn at that. It's so fun!! Oooo I hope they have it on Sunday even though it's Easter. Is anyone celebrating Easter this weekend? What are you doing? I have tomorrow off for Good Friday, then on Saturday I am going to my SIL-to be's house to celebrate my Neice-to be's 6th birthday and have pizza. Then on Sunday we are going out for Easter dinner to a restaurant I DO NOT like. lol This is gonna be a rough weekend but I can do it!! My own mother will not be here for Easter because she is on a cruise in the bahamas... no fair!

Hi ladies! This is my "official" weigh-in day and I'm at 142.6 lbs which is a 0.4 lb loss from last week. My weight jumped around a lot this week but I'm happy with this one because it's my 30.0 lb loss mark! I hope next week is better but I'm happy to be losing at all.

It's getting pretty warm here so I wore a skirt a couple times in the last week and some of my smaller/slimmer T-shirts and I got some compliments. Even though I'm still overweight I'm starting to feel rather attractive.
