Update

Hello, all.
So as you can see it's been months and months since I've posted a recipe. I apologize for this, but there's a reason!

When I started the weight loss journey, is was not only b/c I wanted to lose some weight (who doesn't, really), but it stems from having PCOS (PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome) and wanting to have a baby. I was told by my doctor that without losing weight, there was no way we were going to get pregnant.

Well, guess what? It worked!!! I am currently 13 weeks along with twins. Many of you already know this through facebook and such, but those of my 'followers' who aren't on facebook may have wondered where I disappeared to.

With the twins, I'm having to eat VERY differently that Dr. Malone's diet. In fact, I'm eating about 2500 calories a day. It's a little daunting and it feels crazy! But I'm enjoying my whole wheat crackers and sandwiches (sorry!).

I'm not sure what this pregnancy means for the blog. I go back and forth with wanting to continue to post recipes occasionally while pregnant, even if it does include carbs and just not wanting to think about what I'm cooking at all (I've had some morning/noon/night sickness). With 2 babies arriving in October, I'm not confident that I will have a ton of time to post things here. We'll see. Just bear with me!

Thanks for your support!
Tara

Hey Congrats... I just stumbled upon your blog doing a bit of blog surfing. I haven't read any entries except this one. But I wanted to say I'm a mother of twins. My girls are 2.5 yrs old. My blog is http://txtwins.blogspot.com stop by if you have any questions. Twin pregnancy is a high risk pregnancy and you need a support group! I joined a local Moms of Multiples club in my city. It's such a joy to have identical twin girls though! -Amanda
