You've GOT to be kidding me.

232 this morning.

*cheer*

Hubby has been extremely helpful with all of this. We are buying much less in the way of snacks, which has been good for the pocketbook as well as the waistline. We get things specifically for the kids' lunches, and that's it apart from meals. We are continuing with healthier meals as well, and smaller portions (for the most part, I still make an exception for mashed potatoes).

I'm still not exercising, which sort of bothers me, but I can't seem to get motivated enough to actually do anything about it yet. I am confident it will come with time though. For now I am happy about how things are going without it. :)

Hello, Carrie! (Boy, does that sounds weird after calling you Asara for so many years)...

As someone who has lost around 50lb over the last four years (slowly but surely... and I really want to do the same again), I can tell you this:

Exercise is the major key. You need to be doing it. Otherwise you're setting yourself up for the Big Bounce at the Bottom (which is Bad). Dieting is only good for maintaining your current weight.

Exercise = faster metabolism = you burn more calories even when doing nothing.

Undereating = slower metabolism = feeling sluggish and doing less even if you try = you burn fewer calories.

All that said, grats on the 232! Looking forward to seeing less of you! :p
