Quitter.

 

Picture this: Nonny screaming incessantly after feedings every day for 4 weeks.

Her Mama gets a clue and asks the Facebook world to diagnose her baby. Never to disappoint, Facebook world rightly declares that Nonny has a dairy sensitivity.

Thank you Facebook world. I’ll take your word for it any day of the week.

So the next day, I cut obvious dairy and chocolate.

You heard me right friends.

The original addict quit chocolate.

Because I love my baby more.

The next few months were better…much better. Still normal new baby fussiness, but nothing crazy. So 3 weeks ago, I decided there was still something more I could do. I quit all grains (with the exception of oatmeal) as well and everything, EVERYTHING processed.

Which means, I quit candy.

I know, let’s let that sink in a bit.

Because I love my baby more.

It’s hard, like really hard.

No more quick peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch. Did I mention no more candy? No more bread, crackers, twizzlers, ice cream, spaghetti, pizza…you get the gist.

Now I’m eating meat, some veggies as she’s sensitive to many of them, fruit, nuts and oatmeal.

But I’m doing it. And guess what? I’ve got a happy, happy, happiest baby in the world to show for it.

This really makes me wonder if Bitzy didn’t have colic after all and had the same sensitivities. I’ll never know for sure, but I wonder.

So friends, this is a motivation for us all. If I can quit processed foods/chocolate/sugar then anything, ANYTHING is possible.

You would think that weight would be falling off of me right? Sadly, you are wrong. I’m still fighting the good fight to get this blasted weight off. I’ve lost 25 pounds in 4 months, but it’s WAY harder this time around, ounce by ounce it’s coming off.

How did you guys lose your baby weight? Give this Mama some tips!  And then go eat some candy in my honor!
