Jack Sprat...

Jack Sprat could eat no fat
His wife could eat no lean
And so betwixt the two of them
They licked the platter clean.

So that is life at House Hydrangeas since Monday. Malka Palka Pooka Palka, being UNDER 2 years old, needs FULL FAT foods for her brain development. That's full fat dairy, full fat cottage cheese, full fat yogurt, you get the picture.

Eemah, however, needs low or NO fat foods. Because, well, Eemah needs to lose a few...

WW is going well. I found myself wanting to cry this am when
Narda left for work, because I thought she had left without saying goodbye. I called her on her cell phone to ask her why she hadn't come downstairs (I was doing laundry) to say good bye. There was hurt in my voice, and a quiver in my lip. She said she had gone downstairs, but I wasn't there, and to open the door. I did, and there she was; she kissed me good bye, and gave me that look of: "Oh, my silly baby."

I FORGOT what it's like to let a few emotions come creeping in. Because, you know, I was eating them away.

Silly me. So yeah, it SUCKS, but it's working already. I HATE having to account for what I put in my mouth, but there's NO other way. I simply cannot be trusted around food. Sad, really. But I'm glad I went back. It feels good.
