The Lovely Bones

Went to see the lovely bones the other day with my coworkers. Halfway through the movie I wanted to rush home and hug my baby. Poor thing doesn't know it yet, but she isn't going to be allowed out of the house without a full complement of guards.

What's the Point?

Today I am starting my diet, and I'm not all that enthused about it. I'm trying to pump myself up about it, and I keep telling myself that this is a necessary evil to help lower my cholesterol, but it doesn't seem to be working.

I'm doing a point diet. Not exactly like Weight Watchers, but pretty much the same concept. My grandmother sent me a booklet with all my point tallies, and I'm going to try and use it as much as possible. So far today I've used up 8 points. I only get 20 in a day, so hopefully I've averaged it out so that my lunch at work is going to use up a majority of my points, but yet still leave me with enough to have a small snack when I get home from work tonight.

I've also weighed myself so that I can see if it does any good in that area. This morning I weighed 174. Which is 16 lbs less than before I was pregnant. I know this weight diffence is probably because of my thryoid medicine, but I'm going to be proud of it anyway.

Hopefully I'll be able to keep up with this diet, but right now I have my doubts. All I know right now at this moment, is that I'm hungry . . .
