No pop, no snacks, no sweets, nothing after 7pm. Lunch was a wierd personal leftover concoction, mainly taco ingredients with bread. Supper was Domino's hot wings and breadsticks, I've been craving them for awhile now. Last night was the first night with my wife and baby home from the hospital. The baby wouldn't sleep for more than about 30-45 minutes at a time. We were all prepared for the baby to wake up every 3 hours for feeding, but this came as an unpleasant surprise. As long as you were holding baby Daphne, she slept alright and she was able to calm down whenever she woke up. However, if you tried laying her down to sleep in her cradle, she'd stay asleep until about 1 minute after you got yourself in bed and under your own covers. About 3:30am I decided to take her and rock her in the living room while flipping through tv channels, so that my wife could get a little sleep. I only made it until 6:30am, and I was about to passout, so my wife and I traded and I got about 3 hours of sleep. Today has been smoother. Daphne has been sleeping a lot and waking up every 2-3 hours for nursing. She was actually awake for about 1 hour this afternoon when I was just holding her; she was just looking around with her eyes open, surveying her surroundings. I really hope tonight goes a little easier, maybe her being awake for awhile this afternoon will help her sleep sounder tonight. Oh well, with the baby home, there's not as much extra time to screw up and start snacking because of boredom.

My wife gave birth to our first child, a beautiful baby girl. Daphne Madison was born on 2/6/03 at 11:15pm. She weighed 6lbs 14oz and was 19-3/4" long. The past couple of days have been kind of hectic. I really haven't cheated up until tonight. No pop, no snacks, but I didn't get any time to eat dinner until around 9pm. I was totally worn out and just decided to treat my wife and myself to a pizza. It was after 7pm, but I guess as long as I only do it whenever I have a new child born, it won't be too bad ;-)

MichelleP on 02/08/2003:

Congrats on your new baby!! I got a laugh when you said you would only eat pizza when you have a new baby, lol, that means at least 9 more months till you get another one. Now that is willpower!

Good luck with your program, and new baby. I remember when mine were babies (they are both teens now) the lack of sleep was tuff!

Mazie Dazie on 02/08/2003:
CONGRATULATIONS!!! on your beautiful new daughter. Don't worry the pizza, (I would have had champagne with it and chocolate truffles), no rule is completely iron clad, we must make room to celebrate those miracles! You will need to keep on track with your health and fitness plan anyway, that little one will be testing you soon enough. :) Peace and love, Mazie*

Kerry79 on 02/09/2003:
Congratulations on your little girl - that's wonderful news. And I think you're entitled to pizza as a treat. Take care! Kerry x

No pop, no sweets, no snacks. Large lunch, even larger dinner. I wasn't really all that hungry when it came time for dinner, but my wife made tacos, and I love homemade tacos. I thought I'd limit myself to 2 fully loaded ones, then I decided on 3. I had decided that I was done, but my wife pointed out that there was only 1 shell left, and there was no way that she was going to wrap it up and keep just 1 shell. I guess I could've thrown it away, but decided 1 more taco wouldn't kill me this time. Nothing after 7pm.

No pop, no sweets, no snacks, plenty of water, everything's going pretty easy. Unfortunately not seeing much weight loss lately, but then again I still haven't started any type of exercise regimen. Haven't posted the past couple of days, didn't screw up at all, but my weight rose a pound or two for no reason. It's a little depressing when you're keeping with your plan, but your weight still fluctuates uphill for no aparent reason. Oh well, as long as it comes back off it's alright I guess.

No pop, no snacks. Slimfast shake for breakfast. Busy, didn't get time for lunch until 2pm, didn't want to eat too much that close to dinner, so I just ate a "health" bar. Drank a decent amount of water. Dinner was large.....steak, salad, baked beans, bread, fries, and water.

No pop, no snacks. Getting kind of tired of Slimfast shakes for breakfast every morning, so I also bought a 24 pack of "healthy" breakfast bars. Had one of the bars for breakfast. Lunch was a Healthy Choice blackened chicken. I think that as a whole, frozen dinners have gotten better tasting in recent years. I have to admit that the H.C. blackened chicken was probably one of the best frozen dinners / tv dinners I've ever eaten. For supper I had pork strips and a fried egg. Didn't get too much water in today, which probably accounts for the supposed weight loss.

pastagal on 01/30/2003:
Congrats on the weight loss,,and not eating past 7pm is a great idea,,have a wonderful day tomorrow ok:}

flowermoon on 01/30/2003:
I think the frozen dinners are really good. Sometimes I can't believe they are low-fat, low-cal! Your doing a great job, keep up the good work!!!

breakaway on 01/30/2003:
I think I'm going to try that heathy choice chicken...I'm always looking for better tasting tv dinners for sundays when I work the pm. Hubby can't cook, well, he can but he won't lol...so that will be a great choice for him. Hope your able to get in that water!! Take care and have a great day today!


hope seeker on 01/30/2003:
There really are some great tasting frozen dinners out there now. My only problems are freezer space and sometimes the price :/ oh well. Have a good day :) Hope

No pop, no snacks. Slimfast shake for breakfast. Late lunch with a large mushroom & swiss cheeseburger, fries, and large side salad smothered with blue cheese dressing. I ate lunch late, so didn't really feel all that hungry when dinner time came around. Figured I'd be hungry later, but wanted to keep from eating past 7pm, so I had one of those "health bars" around dinner time. It has 110 calories, 3g fat, 16g carb (10g of which is sugars), and 5g protein. I've tried these bars before and they've always tasted nasty or pretty much tasteless. I doubt that their flavor has changed, but boy did it taste great tonight! It's probably because it's the only chocolate I've had in the past month, except for the 1/3 candy bar slip up a couple of weeks ago. I guess it all depends on what your reference point is......if I had been eating Reeses Peanut Butter Cups the day before, the "health bar" probably would've tasted extremely bland. But since I haven't had any sweets for the past month, that same "health bar" tastes excellent.

I wasn't really hungry today, but later tonight while driving home from a "child care class", I reeeaaallly wanted to go through any fastfood restaurant's drive-thru. It wasn't based on hunger, it just feels good to have some nice hot food to help comfort you. Well, I made it home without giving in. Now I feel fine, but those nice hot late night burgers were calling my name just 1/2 hour ago. :-)

MichelleP on 01/29/2003:

Way to go on not giving in to the comfort food. It is such a hard thing to do, we have done it for so many years! Give yourself a big hug!

breakaway on 01/29/2003:
HOpe you made it through those late night burger calls. You did great passing up those fast food places! I have to go by them every day and it's really hard to pass them by but I've also been doing good at that. I know what you mean by things tasting better when your hungry. Same thing happened to me yesterday...I usually hate salads but yesterday I could have eaten three!! My husband said it was becasue I don't eat all the fat now so it will taste better to me. ANd it sure did! Have a great day and keep up the great work!


Tigger on 01/29/2003:
I am proud of you for recognizing that your fast food craving was based on emotion not hunger. I am lucky that I do not like fast food! Chocolate is my weakness but I do okay as long as I indulge in moderation.

No sweets, no pop. Slimfast for breakfast. Running around all day, finally had a bag of Corn Nuts for "lunch". Went out for Chinese food for dinner, ate a lot. Feel full, nothing after 7pm.

breakaway on 01/27/2003:
Good job not having nothing past 7pm...That is my goal as well. I started at 9pm and did ok...now I'm at 8pm. Getting a little harder but I know I can do it. WAY TO GO!! You sound like a busy man. Keep up the great work!
