Good news: My diet is going well and I am now down 11.2 lbs! I am more than half way to my goal. This WW thing has been working really well for me. I had high hopes that it would have been much faster, but I am happy with the results none the less. I also thought I would have seen a difference in my body by now, but it seems the same. How much weight do you have to lose to look in the mirror and feel and look different? I have never stuck to a diet longer than 2 weeks, so I am impressed with myself for hanging in there.
Bad news: I've been bogged down with sick children for I don't know how long. We went from colds to stomach flu to tonsilitis. Dan and I have not slept a good night in weeks. Vincent was up LITERALLY all night having a tantrum in his room. Engaging him escalates the tantrum, so we have learned to ignore him. He won't listen to me at all, but will obey Dan. I am not sure what to do about that. I'm not a softie...I don't allow disrespectful behavior. I wish I knew what I was doing wrong. If I don't get some sleep, pretty soon I am going to start halucinating...I just know it. Oh...excuse me...I gotta go catch that life size twinkie running around my house and eat it....
