Jon and I talked and he said that if I could just remember what I ate before I moved to Moncton (when I was at 180 lbs) and follow that again then I could probably get the weight off. The problem is I don't remember what I ate. It is easier to make a list of what I didn't eat that I eat now. So quickly off the top of my head this is what I reintroduced to my diet over the last 4 years:
- sweets in general
- french fries
- fish sticks
- cream (in coffee)
My life is no longer my life. It belongs to Alexander. I need to get back into shape for him. I have been having a few symptoms of my disorder popping up lately (difficulty with steps, and some drop foot). I'm not sure if its due to my added weight or if its due to the stress that nursing an 8 month old is putting on my body. My neurologist is out of office until Monday so I'll be giving him a call then. I really don't want to start back on my IVIG so if its the nursing thing it will be short lived as I'm really going to try super hard to get Alexander onto a sippy within the next 2-3 weeks because I want to be back to work in 6 weeks.. HOLY SHIT 6 WEEKS!!! OMG having a mommy break down looking at that.. But financially it must be done. He will be 9.5 months so really we will be ok. Especially when I'll still get my days with him and Jon will get nights.
I can't believe Alexander will be 8 months tomorrow! My goodness they grow fast!
