Sorry I've not been posting. Gwen, you're doing awesome. Aubrey and Denise I feel your pain. My mother in law was in town 2 weekends ago and even though she is a raw vegan (eats sprouts and stuff that I can't consider nourishment) she brings bad eating with her every time she comes. For 3 days we ate out every meal except breakfast. And even though we tried to go places with healthy choices-like Zupas- she ordered one of every dessert they had, including the fondue! This was not good for any of us, especially my parents who are both diabetic! I felt like crap after she left, luckily before she came I got in 3 days of exercise. And last week after she left I got on the treadmill 3 days. I feel pretty good to just have maintained through all this. Last Friday was my last day of work, so now I should be able to get up at a decent hour and exercise. I did my treadmill yesterday and have been eating better. (Protein shake for breakfast, sugar-free smoothie as an after work-out snack, salad for lunch and veges, lean protein and brown rice for dinner. Sounds boring, but this is the menu that worked for me before.) Hopefully I can lose a couple pounds this week. I've only got 2 months to get weight off before I try and get pregnant again. Hope this works! Good luck to you all-keep working hard. It's not easy but you'll feel so much better because of it.
