    Instead of having "answers" on a math test, they should just call them "impressions," and if you got a different "impression," so what, can't we all be brothers?

    Had a good weekend. Met with the trainer after 3 months (too long if you ask me!!) and got a lot of motivation. The new workout is tough, but it will be great. Lots of good arm and core workouts.

    Not a great start to my first challenge, but considering AF will be here anyday, I guess it isn't horrible!

    So I got a gym membership on Aug 18th and I've gone religiously 6 days a week and work out for over an hour each time. I use the arc trainer for my cardio (35 min on level 8) and burn close to 500 calories. I'm sweating and my legs are like jello when I'm done. Lol. I also do alot of ab exercises and weights. However, I haven't lost a single freaking pound! My DH says I look smaller but I haven't seen the scale move at all. My weight fluctuates from day to day between 125 to 127 pounds. I desperately want to lose the rest of this baby weight before it starts to get cold bc otherwise I'll have to buy all new jeans! I do feel good about myself though for committing to work out and I actually love exercising (never thought I'd say that) and look forward to going to the gym but I was really hoping to lose something by now. I am BFing (but that never caused me to hold onto weight before) and I haven't really changed my diet (for fear of losing my supply) but I'm tempted to see a nutritionalist. I eat too many sweets . And finding time to eat in the morning is hard bc I'm just not hungry but by the time lunch rolls around I'm ravenous and over-eat/binge-eat. So there's my faults!

    Anyway, I was wondering if any of you know a better way to eat while nursing but also cutting back on calories? Maybe suggest foods that are healthy yet keep me full? I don't really know what to do. People always say to "just eat healthy" but what does that mean?! Surely I won't lose my supply for cutting out cookies but maybe suggestions on replacement foods?

    Sorry for the novel! Any advice would be great

    The only thing I can tell you is that I too would be starving by lunch, only to eat everything that I could find in the fridge, pantry, etc. This happened because I was out of my normal going to the office routine, which included a big bottle of water on the commute, coffee as soon as I got to the office, a yogurt after that, and then something else about an hour later. Once I was home full time, I would start doing a million things and then all of a sudden it was lunch time and I was so hungry. I had to make a point to eat breakfast, hungry or not. Some mornings it is more elaborate, like an egg white omelet with spinach, other days it is a Kind bar. But everyday, I eat something between 9 and 10. I suffer if I don't.

    You also aren't limited to breakfast foods if you don't like them. You can have a sandwich on whole wheat bread...I personally love an open faced grilled cheese: on a baking sheet place a slice of whole wheat bread. Slice a tomato, then grate some cheddar cheese on top. Broil in the oven until the cheese is melted.

    Also, if you like the convenience of a cookie (eat with one hand, on the run, etc), why not bake some oatmeal lactation cookies?

    SKIP me for week 1 please. I completely forgot to weigh-in, and honestly with school starting here, I don't want to step on the scale for a late weigh-in because I know it's not going to be pretty.

    This was going to be my suggestion, bensgirl.
