Nursing's not enough!

So I've been trying to lose weight on the nursing diet. To say the's not working! I've been maintaining which is good. However, I'm starving all of the time. I think if I just started eating healthier food I'd probably be in good shape.

If I weren't nursing I'd look into Lipovox. It overs some great benefits with few side effects.

Of course, there's always my fall back diet drugs that helped me lose weight before...


A few years ago we decided to get a life insurance quote from our regular insurance provider. Mine came back high since I've got the chunk factor.

Margot is extremely healthy and had asthma her whole life - however, she got nailed for it in the quote and they wanted to charge us way too much to have minimal coverage.

We've talked about looking elsewhere but haven't had the time. Maybe I'll add that to my list of things to do this week!

I give up.

Our computer is an absolute piece of crap. It crashes at least once a day and when we were in Houston my dad informed us that it needs more memory to actually run Windows Vista. Augh.

I'm about to give up on PCs all together and move on over to the dark side -- a Mac! I'm sure that more Mac memory isn't needed to run their main operating system!

It's not baby fat, unfortunately. At this point almost six weeks postpartum I'm not sure I can blame these extra pounds on the pregnancy!

I've been trying to eat a little better and it's helped that I have been able to nurse because I burn a lot of calories that way.

However, I miss the good ole days when I could use Fenphedra to help me lose those unwanted pounds!

Give back to your pets.

We've been traveling a lot the past few days and I must admit that I feel guilty about not providing time for our pets. Poor Murphy is all about the love when we walk in the door and instantly tries to escape.

Then there's Bailey. She's super needy all of the time and when we pick her up from the kennel she has the worst breath and needs a bath.

We've discovered a great website that connects petowners with each other. In fact, they have different promotions to help pet shelters and rescue groups around the country, among which they donate up to $1 mil makeover every year to a deserving and community supported shelter.

I like the feature that helps people find local vets and gives information to help them care for their animals.

Stupid computer.

When we were in Houston my dad mentioned that our computer needed more memory and an upgrade in order to operate Windows Vista.

Little did we know or did Dell make it public that you'd have to have major computer memory in order to run their programs!

I guess they were just trying to keep the prices down when selling machines ... and also trying to bring in money to their bottom line.


I must say that when we get back to Ithaca and Monday rolls around I'm going to start up with a weight loss program.

I figure I'll just do what has worked in the past and what makes the most sense. Eat less and move more.

The reality is... I have the nursing thing going for me and if I can treat my body better I'm bound to drop some serious poundage.
