4 days down...a lifetime to go!

Okay, I've done it! I have successfully counted points AND stayed within those points for 4 days now. I was even below my points yesterday (Thursday). I got on the scale Wednesday morning and was down 2# since FRIDAY! And I just started my "one day at a time" point counting on Monday. WOO HOO!!!

But now...I am at my mom's. Yep...made the trip Thursday....should have been 2 hours and 15 minutes...ended up being 4.5 hours--YIKES! The boys did AWESOME, however, so I won't complain. And I conquered a fear yesterday....nursing in public. I nursed DS2 while DS1 and I ate at Taco Bell. It was the only option I had so I went with it. Thank god for a nursing cover, otherwise I would have flashed my boob, but I'm getting better at that even! Anyway...back to being at my mom's. She does NOT eat right...BUT, I have come armed with meals to cook that are point friendly. My mom is trying to lose weight, but yet, she doesn't want to eat right or eat things good for you.'s a never ending battle with her. Oh well!

Today is THE DAY! I am chopping off my hair! I can't wait!!! And yes, I am going to donate it. I am so excited...gotta find some new sassy, chic look for me. I will post pictures (before and after) once I get home next week...can't do it from mom's. Have a great weekend! Gotta hit the shower and pump. :)

Oh! Before I forget....Zac slept through the night Wednesday AND Thursday nights!!!! 10-5 both nights!!! Then he gets up, eats and goes right back to sleep. WOO HOO!!! And...he is 8 weeks old now. HOORAY!!!!
