Love the set up, I use smart holders in Lightroom, but the date thing was always so daunting (and mathy) so now I should be able to do it quickly. I folioed the iCal tip, but it says next week is week 1 - does anyone else have that issue or am I iCal incompetent? I am loving those new templates, they are exactly what I was looking for - clean, crisp and magazine-like. I now have Day One all set up and I'm stoked to begin.

I so understand what you are feeling, and I have only been eating less since Nov 1 .... and not Moving More at all. I have been eating Paleo (veggies, fruit, grass fed meat and good fats) along with my hubby since Nov 1 and have lost 27 pounds, but have lost not once single pound in the past few weeks. I know I have to exercise (mm) to keep it coming off, but finding it so hard to find the time while working at home and running after a 20 month old. I am still in, you have been a huge inspiration, and it is nice to know I am not the only one struggling. Go us!!

Congratulations!! What a fabulous follow up to your infertility pose! We have a daughter (15 months) by anonymous egg donor and gestational surrogate and there is not even 1 tiny speck of me that feels she isn't "mine". I know you will feel the same way. Can't wait to see the baby pictures!
