And you think you are having all the problems with your problem child…and then you bump into other moms and you realise it is not just you.
I remember the reason I started a blog, way back in the day was because of Valentines day. I remember reading all these blogs that just hated Valentines day and said how they never celebrate it. I love Valentines day.
One month down on this diet. A total weight loss of 8kg and an average of 2cm loss on parts of my body. I have to wait two more months to do blood tests and see the affect on my body in other ways. I think I am happy with that. At least I am getting smaller and I feel fine. I have not starved or felt icky and dizzy. I have to admit the first week was not easy: I felt ill (well eventually found I actually was ill, so may not have been the diest at all.)
This school thing is so hard. For me. Grade 1 has been such a jump forward. I find myself struggling to let go and just let him do all the big boy things. I walk him to his class and then I have moments of anxiousness when I have to leave him there and walk away. There is just this field of kids and I have to leave him there. No adult to hand him over to. I am not used to this.
So it is actually time to really properly lose this weight that I have. It just cannot go on anymore. We don’t eat a whole heap of junk…but the tea…I love it. With milk and sugar and I just cannot do that without piling on the weight.
