I hear ya I do and I'm glad you made me stop and think. BUT really I'm one of those people who don't handle sleep being broke up very well, heck i don't handle not getting 8 hours very well. But I'm adjusting and taking it easy (if only you could see my house, hehehe!) as much as I can. As for the exercise I'm doing it's a 10 minute pilates on the exercise ball routine that is for flexibility (which really means all i'm doing is stretching). I skip the 1 thing that is abdominal involved and modify the things that tend to make me notice my abdomin. I've also been doing 5 minutes of arm exercises with the ball... believe it or not, after the 10 minute flexibilty portion I feel less stressed and feel more in tune and ready to go for the night ahead. mainly it's becoming my "me" time as my husband has been taking baby duty while I do it, I focus on modifying every move to be sure I'm not "harming" myself. :) I'm not cleared yet which is why i'm modifying an already super easy routine. :)As for little man sleeping through the night... yeah, did I forget to mention to ya all that the reason i'm so exhausted is that we've found out he's lactose intolerant (so we've had some issues lately) AND we've been dealing with colic issues this last week and a 1/2. To top it off every other night he's up to eat every 2 hours instead of every 3 like he is during the day. So... yeah. :) he was great those first 2 weeks, only getting up 1x between 10pm and 5am... and yeah, that has stopped. Oh well, what do you do, it's all part of the job. :)And I promise not to over do it. :)
I know exactly how you feel, and being tall is kind of worse because you can semi-hide the fat away even though you know it really should go.I did WW a few years ago when I was in the UK and could access the on-line version (I'm in Ireland now and they haven't got to that level of technology!). It worked very well although I did end up mostly eating broccoli stirfrys and getting really fed up with broccoli. I didn't find that it made me really paranoid about point and calorie counting (except in the first week), but it did make me much more aware that things that look relatively innocuous can be pretty bad (like 3 points for one frankfurter and I can happily eat a whole packet).I loved being slim but then the boyfriend moved in and I put it all back on again. I keep trying to start again but it's pretty half hearted so I'm still over-weight (and getting older makes the fat harder to lose too). I will try again but the thought of going to a room full of people to get weighed every week puts me right off, so I'll either do it on line or use the At Home version depending on where I am.Good luck whatever you decide to do.
