Weight Loss Wednesdays: Week 3 (aka "I'm Just Not That Into You").

I have too much on my plate, literally and figuratively. The scale didn't move for me this week (though I suppose I can take solace in the fact that I didn't gain any weight). My temptation is to beat myself up for being a big fat failure, but I think I'll take a pass on that. I feel like "I'm just not that into" this weight loss thing right now, as necessary as it is. I'm juggling a lot, and between managing Max's hectic therapy schedule and having my sleep interrupted every few hours with Cameron wanting to eat, there isn't much left for me. Once again, I am at the bottom of my priority list.

I'm hoping that as the weather warms up (hardy har har, it's been -14 out all week), I'll feel inspired to get outside with the kids for walks. It has been so cold out lately that all I've felt like doing is hibernating. I believe I described it as "colder than a witch's tits" when chatting with my mom the other day. My extra fat has been keeping me warm! Bulky sweaters and wool socks have pushed the thoughts of bathing suit weather right of the radar.

What's my strategy to actually start losing weight, you ask? Well, I think I'm going to lighten up on myself, and try to just take it a day at a time. This is a tough week because Scott's parents (who help with the kids during the week so I don't have to cart them both around to therapy) are basking in the sun in Jamaica. If I lose weight, it's probably going to be because I don't have any time to eat! Today alone is nuts. Max has IBI from 2-4, our Behaviour Consultant is visiting us at home from 4:30 - 5:30, and then I have to get to night school for the Learning Journey into Autism course I'm taking from 6:30 - 9:30. That's a busy day, and my Wonder Woman costume is at the dry cleaners.
