    Day going well here too. I made a really nice zuchinis-peas-mint soup. Lovely and very feeling.
    @made2bAmummy Maybe up your fiber intake to be satisfied? Fruits and veg?

    Sometimes I hope if I/we are aware of the reasons we do things then we can change them or at least be more aware and counteract them.

    :
    I'm sorry to read about your experience with your birth Mother. It's so easy to turn to food for comfort. It's like food is your "friend" who doesn't ask any questions and doesn't expect anything in return (except your health). I find it easier to reach for a sugary treat than to talk my feelings out or ask for help.

    I agree 100% with your statement about about being aware of the reasons first so we can then work out how to counteract them.

    Here's another one of my excuses- when I'm sleep deprived and have no energy left, I can't always just take a nap because I have 3 children to care for- so I eat up on carbs and fat instead. Eating up also calmed my frazzled nerves and makes me a kinder more patient Mother- I think.

    I honestly don't know what I could do at 7pm when I've been up 14 hours after broken sleep and trying to settle three kids to bed by myself to help me get that energy I need to see it through. Am I just being precious?

    Your soup sounds healthy!! Thanks for the suggestion about more fruits and veg. What else would you have on a typical day?

    Mostly I follow pro points but I try to do a "simply filling day" now and then to get a break from counting and to get more nutrients. You?

    No but I have looked into it before and I think i could do that plus breastfeed. just not sure how to add in other foods like treats or is that really all you can have?

    There's more info here:

    http://www.weightwatchers.com.au/plan/eat/plan.aspx

    You get an optional 49 points per week to spend on whatever you choose, if you choose to spend it. You get an extra allowance for breastfeeding too.

    but the simply filling is an american/british only ww program isn't it? used to be core here a few years back but they stopped it sadly.
