My February Journal

I'll be entering my notes and thoughts on this page--hopefully daily.  I may even go so far as to write down what I'm eating! 
Goal Weight:  135  
Goal Pant Size:  10       
Exercise Goal:  Currently, 4 days per week, but working up to 5-6 days per week.
Weigh-In Day:  Friday because I like to splurge a little on the weekends!
Body Type:  Thin/muscular arms & legs, big boobs, fat waist, and no hips.  Kind of like a guy.  I carry my fat in my belly.
Other:  Gonna start out slowly and see how it goes!  I'm also a breastfeeding mom!

Doesn't look like I lost any weight.  Gonna feed the babe again, then reweigh, but I doubt that'll help.  Did lose a quarter inch in the waist and hips, so it's something.  I'm not sure what to do to get the scale to cooperate.  I don't feel like I should cut more calories b/c of breastfeeding, but I could still be eating better.  I'm starting to think that I just won't be able to lose it until I stop BFing and I have no idea when that'll be.  Blah!
Got about 8 inches of snow yesterday and it's snowing again this morning.  Feeling stuck in the house and want to be naughty and bake some cookies!
Not sure if I'm going to work out today or not.  Maybe later.
Food:  Slim-Fast (4), Coffee (2), Bean & Cheese Quesadilla w/ Salsa (6), V8 (1)

Not a loser this week, but didn't gain either.  It was to be expected what with the way I've been eating.  Still lost a quarter inch in the bust and waist, so I can't complain.  This whole process is just SO darn slow while breastfeeding!  No workout today.
