If a certain loved one told me I’m “not allowed” to have anything, that’s a SURE FIRED way to make sure I get it and ENJOY it!
Someone needs a kick in the head.
I would get that cookie stash and eat it right in front of said loved one (groaning with pleasure as you do)… then maybe get that person to read Eat4Heat or DietRecovery, so they can get off the ‘fat’ wagon.
We call having a little padding being “prosperous” around our house. :) As a new mom, you deserve a little prosperity! Geez!!
As for losing 15/17 kgs… I think that’s AWESOME, and a good sign of a healthy metabolism!
