So much for this weekend being "the time."LOL Here it is Sunday and I'm still here, pregnant and horribly uncomfortable. We've been keeping fairly busy so I guess I'm o.k. with another couple of

I've been observing my dh's diet lately and I noticed something that I can't believe that I was missing. He's been doing the same thing that De'Etta was doing. He's been restricting his food intake but then, unlike De'Etta, he's been gorging himself on bad things at night. So I've put him on the 12 servings of fruits and veggies diet. Yesterday was his first day and he said that he couldn't even think of snacking last night.lolol I'm going shopping today and will replenish our fruits and veggies and hopefully he'll keep it up. I'm guessing he'll start losing some weight and he'll start feeling better in a week or two. We are going to purchase The Magic Bullet today sometime to make it easier for him to make smoothies in the morning.

Well, here's my menu for the week and I sincerely hope this is the very last menu that I'll have to prepare on my own and then shop for, for the next month or so.LOLOL



My Menu for this week...




grilled chicken, rice, and veggies
hamburgers, french fries, and salad
salmon, rice, and veggies
spaghetti, garlic toast, and salad
heavenly chicken

The last days seem to take forever but soon you'll be holding your wonderful baby. Praying you won't have time to post your next menu because baby will already be here!

Soon...very, very soon, Lisa. praying fo the perfect timing.

Tell your husband that you DO get more comfortable with that much fiber eventually....though UGH some days I'm so full I could BURST....I so sympathize with him. I've decided to aim for 10 after the dietitian let slip in the class that the recommendation is 10 - 13 with men being at the 13....OK this is one time I'll be happy to eat less of something. LOL

Thanks Jodi!


Eric is hanging in there and I've noticed much less snacking. I think he is already starting to feel better from just eating regularly. I'm trying my hardest to make sure he has plenty to eat and stay on this diet. He thinks that it just can't be that healthy to be eating this much fiber.LOLOL
