My activity for the day was bathing my two dogs and taking them for a short walk to get them dry. I am exhausted and they are napping.

Sounds like an independent little thing! I guess it would not be easy to divert his attention when you secretly sneak out for a walk, right?

So here is my 7 day commitment:
1.Post all my stuff everyday (needs work)
2.Don't eat my feelings!!!! (really hard)
3.Work on excersing more (hard with a new baby and no sleep)
4.Seek more support
5.Improve my mood and motivation
6.Work on not being so depressed (Any thoughts would be gladly accepted!!)

So hopefully I can take then few minutes out of my day to post all my things and help with support and receive support.

Goals:
1. Rolling average <1400 cals: M-1274, T-1209, W-1169, T-1124
2. 1 green tea/day: M-Y, T-Y, W-Y, Th-Y
3. Increase Omega 3: M-Y, T-Y, W-Y, Th-Y
4. Do some kinda exercise this week: M-walked 1.5k, T-lap swim W-walk 2K, Th-N

Ok, another party down. This one involved lasagna and cake but I ate 3 salad's today and was able to minimize my portion size. One more party Sat, a joint grad party for my son and niece. My goal will be "small portions, maximize vegs"- gotta learn how to deal with this social stuff with restraint. I didn't exercise today, I worked 3/4 of the day then went home and prepared the meal for a bunch of family. Then grad. But plan to get more walking in before the week is out.

Given the lateness of our discussion about the walking challenge I say we start next week. My suggestion I guess is that we say 10 miles of any activity. I agree Carolyn that it would be nearly impossible to swim that unless you swam daily and a lot. I always liked going to the gym for weight training but prefer my cardio outside. There is a park "fitwalk" 2 x a week down the road from me maybe I'll go.

Jimmyswifey, I suggest starting a daily gratitude journal. It's a good way to change your perspective.

Robin - glad the graduation & party went well.

Libby - hope you're feeling better (or are the two 800-calorie days because you don't feel like eating?)

Jimmyswifey - Regarding the depression...it's possible you're experiencing post-partum depression.

I've been watching a series called "The Food Hospital." They cure (or greatly minimize symptoms) through diet. It's on the cooking channel and also on youtube. Here's a link to the episode where they help a woman who suffers from depression:

The Food Hospital S01E04 - YouTube

The depression segment starts at the 10 min mark. In that segment, shel'll talk with a doctor and dietician and then go over a diet plan with the dietician. Then they'll jump to some unrelated segments, then a later segment towards the end will show how things changed for her.

It's an an interesting show. It's amazing how a change in diet can make such profound improvement in symptoms - and interesting to see how some foods help eliminate symptoms of some diseases and aggravate symptoms of others.

I keep hoping they'll have a segment on diet and fibromylagia (for Hope), but haven't seen one yet.

My metabolism is slow and the only way I can lose weight is to keep my calories low especially because I can't do a lot of exercise now. It's a constant struggle to be low enough not to gain weight.

Jimmyswifey: I know what you mean by "Don't eat your feelings." I had a rather bad day at work yesterday and it turned into 1000 cals of Chocolate, + 200 of Pinot (red). In my case, I realize (this morning,) that I can not let others define me. I define myself by my actions, and my will. I know that's kind of cryptic, but it occurs to me that this self-assessment may help you also.

As for all that chocolate, it took me a looong time to get to this point, but I know I can burn those cals off in a couple of days.

Glad to see you back on here JimmysWifey! I know it's hard to post daily but just try to get it into your routine. I always post my food on here. It was hard at first but now I feel obsessed and I have to get it on here. I usually do it on breaks at work and at night when I am home. I am trying to work on posting on this forum more. Right now things have been busy, but I know that I can find the time to do it. Good luck this week with your goals!

I have been working hard to get water and walking in daily. I took the advice about walking during my kids' baseball games. I walk and then I stand to watch most of the game instead of sitting. I am trying hard to get all the extra movement I can at work and home. I have been trying not to look at the scale daily, but I do. So far, it has not moved....I fear I have hit a standing still point, which is scary to me.

Week's goals:

*Drink 12 oz of water with every meal: yes, yes, yes, yes
*Walk 7 days a week: no, yes, yes, yes
*Post everything I eat and log in everyday: yes, yes, yes, yes
*Lose 2 or more pounds this week: crossing fingers and toes
*Eat less that 1,250 calories a day: yes, yes, yes, yes
