I make sure Caitlin gets a well balanced diet. Or at least I try to. I give her a vegetable, fruit, protein, and a carb at each meal. She doesn't always eat everything. She usually doesn't in fact. Overall I'd say she eats well. She mostly eats fruits and vegetables.
Now why can't I force myself to eat meals as well balanced as the ones I prepare for Caitlin. When I'm stressed or just plain busy holding Davey on my hip, I tend to eat the not-so-good-for-you-snack food. I know I should prepare cut veggies ahead of time or put Davey down and listen to him squeal like I do when I have to get Cait food. Why do I do that for her but not for me? I guess it is because I hate listening to the squealing and I'm a little lazy. It is easier to grab a handful of goldfish or jellybeans than make a salad.
My husband, David, forgets to eat sometimes. If he is watching the kids or busy doing chores, he forgets to eat. I have never forgotten to eat. I wish I could. I'm jealous of his ability to forget to eat.
As you can tell from this post or if you know me in real life, I'm struggling with my weight at the moment and eating issues. The weight has not come off as quickly as it did when I had Caitlin. I'm going to Weight Watchers. It is hard to work the program but I know I need the structure so that I can finally lose the weight. My goal is to lose it by Davey's first birthday. I have a little less than 4 months.
I want to be able to go into a swimming pool this summer and not think about how I look in a swimsuit. I don't expect to be a swimsuit model. I just want to get into the pool.
