My 2nd Week with WW

Week 2 has gone much smoother for me! Honestly, I don't feel like I am on a diet.
 I think I have gotten into a "groove" so to speak on planning menus and counting points. Some days I am actually struggling to eat all my points (which is highly required for nutritional guidelines). I have had NO decrease in my milk supply, which is what I was so worried about.

My goal now to start making sure I meet all my "Health Check Guidelines" each day, which includes 8 servings of water (I always meet this one!!), 3 servings of milk/dairy, 5-8 servings of fruits/veggies (this is where I lack!) and 2tsp of healthy oils a day (haven't even attempted this one!).

Cody & I have been trying a ton of new recipes!! It has actually been fun b/c it is forcing me to attempt new meals and get out the "food rut" that we were in. Last night we enjoy some yummy Dijon Roast Potatoes & Chicken with Balsamic Vinegar, Sweet Onions & Thyme.

Favorite New Recipe: Asian-Glazed Drumsticks
(served with 1/2c white rice and broccoli & cheese)
Cody's comment on these: "They don't even taste healthy!"

Haha!! I love you Cody ;)

Week 2 Weight Loss: 2 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 5.5 pounds!

I should add: I am officially back to pre-Emma weight now :)

Thanks Kelly! Well, I am pre-Emma weight but not pre-Reese weight yet. I have 5# lingering around from her pregnancy...that's my next goal ;) I should have posted the recipes. If you want a recipe, let me know :)
