They say breastfeeding is supposed to help you lose weight, but it’s not a magical thing. It has to be done right. I am most definitely not doing it right. Sure it burns extra calories, but if more calories are taken in, the extra burned ones don’t really matter. That is what I’m really struggling with right now.
I have been snacking non-stop. I wish I could say I was eating veggies or fruit, but instead I’m snacking on candy and chocolate and high sodium deli meats. It has led to weight gain instead of weight loss. One of my new weaknesses is drinking my calories. I’ve begun guzzling juice and chocolate milk and that stuff is full of sugar! I have to start being more aware of what I’m putting in my mouth. I should probably restart tracking on myfitnesspal or counting weight watcher points!!
I am stationary most of the day as well. While I was working, I was on my feet all day walking around. My body is not used to staying still and it punishing me by storing all my “food” as fat. I really need to get moving again.
Peter and I signed up for a new gym a couple weeks ago and we’ve each gone a couple times. However, ever since Ezri’s freak out on Peter last week, I haven’t wanted to leave her. I am petrified. So working out has fallen to the wayside. Maybe this week I will take the leap again to work out. I can’t be around 24/7 for Ezri’s whole life.
So I just needed to get this out there. Hopefully it will help me commit to eating better and moving more!
