brownies are yummy!

Day 2 of my NO CARB diet and I failed. I just had to have bite of Zealand's brownie. It wasn't even tasty, and then I took 2 more bites! UGH. I may not have lost weight in the last two days, but poor Kingsley has lost 4 ounces in the last 2 weeks.....and I feel helpless.
Zealand started to lose weight about this time too, I chalked it up to being pregnant with Kingsley. The lactation consultant thinks maybe I have a thyroid issue as there really is no other explanation. So, I guess I will start back on the Reglan prescription tonight. She surely doesn't look waif, she has plenty of fat but I still hate that she is losing, and I feel like it's all my fault.
I've been dodging the diet chat, but honestly besides the 3 brownie nibbles, I stuck to it: 2 Hot dogs stuffed with cheese and spicy mustard, pepperoni and cheese bites for a snack. Sugar free jello topped with cool whip (or whipped cream, I don't know the difference) And for dinner 6 baby sliders with crumbled bacon and cheese!
I won another giveaway today from Things Moms Like....a Ni Hao Kai-Lan DVD. I've yet to pop in my other win from her (The chicks and chickens workout DVD). Tomorrow I have to shop for Zealand's friend's 2 year birthday party that is Thursday at Chuck E Cheese. What do you get a 2 year old, who's Mother says not to get him anything? I need advice. Do I not get anything? Because I know, when I tell DH not to get me anything I DON'T MEAN IT!!
I have a couple giveaways in the works and hopefully by the end of the month I will have the reviews in!! Yippee for my readers! I hope that we spread the news so well that they will keep coming! Anyone have any suggestions on what they would like to win? Or have any friends with products that would like to sponsor a giveaway?
OK off to print some shipping labels on some stuff I sold on ebay!

Yay! I'm so happy for you re: the reviews and giveaways! (I would like to win a wet bag:)Oh, and I would get something small for the birthday boy.

Glad to see you stuck with your diet even though you hit a slight bump. Most would call it quits and lost day and indulge in every single craving imaginable! Kuddos to you!!

I would get something for the lil guy as well, but maybe something like a GC since you aren't sure what to get and this way he (or his mom) can go to the store and pick out something he may need or want at a later date! Some people don't like GCs but I sure do!! LOL!

dont worry about the brownie. you are doing great and a couple bites will never make or break your whole day. everything in moderation! i understand the disappointment, i feel it when i "cheat", too. but (and its funny, i just wrote this in my new body after baby blog post) life is just a bunch of second chances.

and its great about the blog giveaways and reviews. i swear, for the life of me i cannot figure out how to get people to read my blog. especially not enough for me to do a giveaway! no one would want me to do one for them because no one would enter! so its really cool that you are doing that. yay!
