My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.


Sofa, So Good

The sofa has been a great parking spot for me the past day and a half! I'm feeling much improved with yet another complete night of sleep. Ava is still giving me the go to hell look for denying her the boob, but what can I do? I am doing the old pump and dump routine, and in another 2-3 days I'll be back into the groove on the bf-ing.

My mom and dad have both made smart ass comments like "Well she'll be weaned by the time you're done with those medicines!". This angers me to no end. You'd think they would have tried to be supportive all these months, but it's just a "when will you be through with that thing" to them. Mess with me people, and she'll be 3 years old and still nursing! Arrrgh!

I'm guessing this wasn't the best week to become a part of the RPNC. The meds have made me blow up like a toad. I was 2 lbs. lighter than I'd thought when I went to the doc the other day though, so that's like wiggle room- right?! So with that wiggle room I wiggled right into a pack or two of Oreo Cakesters. And part of a steak. My weakness is portion control! I do great at night because I cook small portions for Jef, but the rest of the day is just one huge smorgasbord for me with fridge leftovers, fast food, and food from mom's house. Heaven forbid I visit another relative- they will literally poke food down your gullet (do I have a gullet?).

So, my RPNC goals are:

  1. Eat better portion sizes
  2. Cut out fast food to a minimum
  3. Drink more water (which is also a doctor's order)
  4. Be it karate or playing in the yard or house with the kiddos I'm going to get up and move- anything can be exercise!

Glad to hear that you're feeling a bit better girl, i've missed talking to you. I was a really bad RPNC yesterday too. The manhcild and I ordered pizza and bought ice cream because K abandoned me to have dinner with her friend mustang Sally. She threatened to tell the other ninjas but I told her I didn't care! : ( I'm a chubbb oooo!

Yeah I haven't been doing that good lately in the eating well department. Glad you are feeling better and sorry about the pump and dump. That's got to be tough.

Don't worry about it, I am taking my cue from Kelly and starting on Friday. When I picked Kyle up from the airport, we stopped and had big juicy cheeseburgers and garlic fries, I even had a chocoalte shake. That's probably 5 lbs. right there! Hope you feel better soon. Ava will let you know when she is done bfing, anyone else can go to hell!

B said...

Whoo, listen to supermom all energized by that cheeseburger! I'm thinking Friday sounds good to me too! : )

Milk Maid said...

I want so garlic fries- YUM!

Deena said...

Ummm, don't you hate it when people get all up in your business?
If you want to breast feed Ava until she can ask for the boob, well that's YOUR decision, not theirs!

Glad you are feeling better and your plan sounds great about losing weight!
Go RPNC!!!!

I admire you for BF-ing this long. I'm also a little jealous =) Keep up the good work, Mom!

Glad to hear Supermom is with me on the waiting until tomorrow thing. I have really been enjoying my last day of no-holds-barred eating =) Sounds like your plan is similar to mine, and I hope we can make it work!
