Trucking along...

Well, I'm working at it. If either of the Little Ones would sleep I think I'd be in better shape. Boy is feeling stress over starting school, I think, and not sleeping well. Girl is growing and needs her calories.

Me? I'm writing down everything I eat. Did you know that a measley 2/3 cup of ground beef has 450 calories and a whopping 30 grams of fat? And that's lean ground beef! Yikes.

As for the writing, I want one of those progress-meter-things. If I cross-multiply and divide, seems I'm something like 65% done. That's cool.

Off to write a bit. *yawn*

30 grams of fat? Yikes! Maybe they're measuring it before it's been drained.

Sorry about the lack of sleep. Hope both kiddos start sleeping better soon!

I feel your pain. I just started Weight Watchers to lose the extra 10 pounds of baby fat (and the previous 20 pounds of Jenny fat) and the restrictions on portions surprised me. It's going well now, though.

WRT progress meters, I get mine from
I have to update it and re-insert the code into my blog template every time, though. But it's a fun little graphic and it keeps me motivated. *g*
