How stuff works...

I am doing Weight Watchers.

I am trying to say that without gritting my teeth. Whoever said it's easy to lose weight and nurse a baby is either:

A.) A liar

or

B.) A liar

It is not easy for me. The only thing easy for me is consuming 4-5 THOUSAND calories a day, yet managing to touch nary a vegetable or fruit.

I consider it a gift.

So as Samuel would say, "Here's the deal"....

Weight Watchers has these little 1-point bars called, Peanut Butter Bliss.

Bliss? Well yes, I would say they are blissful. Blissfully wicked and evil.

These little bars are like crack and I am figuring out that even though I am allotted 36 points per day I cannot eat 36 of these little crack-bars.

And so now I'm back to gritting my teeth.....since it's the only thing I can do to KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT.

Oh girl you crack me up. Keep up the good work, nursing helps you lose weight.

You make me laugh. After four kids, I'm having a hard time getting pack to anywhere near a decent size. I love carbs too much! From your pictures, I think you look GREAT!

and by "pack" I meant "back." Why don't I proofread?

I bet they're pricey per box too! I may have to try those!

I can never lose weight while nursing. It seems to take me two years to lose the "baby" fat.

Try eating oatmeal and drinking herbal tea. That always got me through.

After 8 years of not being pregnant or nursing, I'm trying to learn how to eat like a person and not a horse. :)

I could never loose weight while nursing either. I think those people are liars also ;o)

You need extra calories while you are nursing...just try to eat lots of fruits and veggies...and nuts. Nuts are a great healthy snack that curbs the appetite while providing lots of nutrition!

Don't worry about losing weight...it will come off as you nurse... and it seems when I stopped nursing is when all the final extra pounds came off...I think I just retained a lot of fluids and all while nursing.

I am cracking up! So funny!

Praying for you during the weight loss--it's tough. Weight Watchers is great, though.
