WW Progress

Yesterday, I got my 10-pound weight loss star. -10.5
Not too bad for 3 weeks time.
It's tough with a 2-yr. old who just wants what she wants.
But so far, she's really loved the variety of vegetables, fruits, and snacks.
And, if I happen to be eating a frozen meal that included mashed potatoes, she jacks them.
So, my new award-winning weight-loss strategy is this:
1) prepare your own food
2) allow toddler to see it and eat off your plate at will
3) watch the pounds disappear

Oh, and for her 6-month birthday, Bit-Bit has a double ear infection (her first that we know of). She only weighs 15 pounds, 3 oz. and is 25 inches long. Petite chubster. That's my Bit-Bit.

I think my next goal is to loose the weight equivalent of a Bit-Bit!

THAT IS SUPER!!!!!! Your doing great- and what a great strategy- I just had a Healthy choice steamer for lunch- the chicken in parmesan sauce- YUM! I had to add a little hot sauce but it was YUMMY! and it is a 6 point meal. just an fyi- Bit Bit sounds like my little G- petite! :)

Great job on the weight loss! 10.5# in three weeks! Wish I could do that. I haven't been to the gym in three weeks, I feel like a bum.

Wonderful--I'm so glad you're choosing to prioritize your health. Just think--you're teaching your daughters healthy eating habits very early. Way to go!

BTW, I've been writing a lot about not weight-loss obsessing but I think it's an individual thing, and if you need to lose weight for your health I'm here to support you!

Good Job! You won't believe how loosing some pounds makes you feel really healthy too! That is a good strategy to just let Cookie share, rather than what I used to do when my son was little-I would get into the habit of eating all the stuff he wasted! He was not a great eater--can't tell you how many happy meals were left practically untouched-then I would pick at it...Not a good thing! I gained lots of weight doing that. Keep up the good work.

Woohoo!! Good for you!! I'm jealous. I freaked out and had a hamburger and fries today. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
