Weightloss

i was thinking about weight loss latley and i came to the conclusion the reason people struggle with their weight either gaining or losing is because there are so many conflicting theories in how to eat that we get confused and just give up. 

I often try the weight watchers method but then i think well i shouldnt be eating sugar and carbs. Maybe i shouldnt be having gluten, but then i know its healthier to cook from scratch. All foods in small portions have been shown to be better than cutting things out. Diet shakes are great but high in sugar. Lite and easy just delivers meals but its really expensive and you dont get to cook which i really enjoy not to mention you only get 1-2 choices each meal. What about high protien, fruit has sugar is that ok? Maybe i should just have meat and vegies but corn and peas are high points on weight watchers. Full cream and fat is better for you but twice the callories. Cows milk is bad for you but you have to drink it for healthy bones. 

You see what i mean?? Its so confusing! Not to mention people who say you have to work out 5 times a week, who has time for that?!? Really i struggle to stay in one frame of mind for more than a week. I start well then think well maybe this other way would be healthier? Sure i could find a set meal plan but then what if i dont feel line chicken for dinner, what if i want to go out for lunch with family?

2.5years old

rue is nearly two and a half! Im really loving this age. He has started becoming a real little person. He takes instruction and understands us so much better than even a few months ago. He will walk with me holding my hand most of the time and mostly stops when i tell him too (we are still working on this one). He will start swimming lessons next year and toilet training over christmas. 

He loves babies and takes care of his cousin giving him toys when he cries. He pats the dogs when they let him andrides them like a horse when he catches them. He loves painting and coloring but mostly loves water! 

He hates having his nappy changed and always wants another story before bed. He loves baths and will try and climb in fully clothed if you arent careful.
