Back on Plan today

Ok so I hesitantly write this...but I know I need to get back on track...so I am done my girly stuff so I figure time to hop back on the wagon. Though somewhat reluctant as I think how can I add counting points to my daily routine; I feel over loaded as it is...but we'll try. I think I will also use the points value determined by the new system (also found on Roni's sight, quite handy!) It says a daily point value of 30 (32 if I stand all day but I can't gauge between 'sit all day' and stand all day, but really I think I'm pretty active dealing with 3 kids) I was doing 28 daily points. I'm kinda nervous also because I just can't fit exercises in right now. I don't have enough energy to do basics so I don't want to deplete it with exercise. Maybe when Jett is sleeping mostly thru the night.
I have to go weigh my self and will post that later today.

So yesterday I had to call on a friend to take the girls in the morning. I felt kinda like a failure but I was SOOOO tired I just couldn't deal with them. Jett had a bad night and that topped with minimal sleep for the past 5 weeks = an extremely tired tallmama!

Ok I'm outtie....

Edited to add: Today's WI was 229.4 which I am pleasantly surprised on! I'm still in the 20's! Whoot Whoot. It's 5 weeks to my birthday (35 YIKES) so my 5 week goal is 10 lbs so then I will be in the teen's. It will also be the 1 year anniversary to when I officially started to lose weight (starting @ 264.8) Of course I figured a year later I'd be at goal for sure (175 lbs) but thinking positively down 45 (HOPEFULLY) pounds by then will be an accomplishment.

Chasing kids definitely counts as exercise!

I seriously don't know how you even keep your sanity right now, let alone count points! Stress and life changes cause our bodies do all sorts of crazy things - good for you for taking control back and getting back on track! And BTW - you can so kick 10 pounds in the butt over the next 5 weeks!

i would have to say that lack of sleep makes it hard to stick to your diet. but you are doing a great job at it! you can definately make your goal by your bday!!

So glad you are ALIVE!!!! I was worried that you had been trapped under a pile of poopy diapers with no way out or something.
