It's been some time...and I'll admit that I have been avoiding, many things, my blog included.
I am still resting at 200...I did go down to 199, but then back up. I feel like I fight myself within ten pounds. Oh well.
I attempted a cleanse, and that just caused me to get pretty sick, and it was all bad. Horrible half week (couldn't even make it through the week).
I was doing great with my workouts, then with getting sick (and you're not supposed to workout while cleansing), I've lost my groove.
The Mister and I still have our $100 bet that I can't get down 30 pounds (20 more to go) by April 1st.
My doctor doesn't think I need any fills, and it's really starting to piss me off. For one, I'm paying the copay so you can tell me I don't need a fill? For two, we all see me on this huge plateau...but hey, you're the doctor I guess.
I have been doing well with my eating, and I notice when I'm eating good and working out, I do go down in weight...then something happens and I either stop working out, or start eating horribly. Amazing how well candy can go down, but I can't eat certain veggies to save my life.
I know my last fill (almost two months ago) did something, because since then I cannot eat bread, rice, and most pasta. So I just steer clear of it these days.
Life on the other hand, is fabulous. People have noticed I've lost weight. I hosted a baby shower for a dear friend of mine, and there were people I haven't seen in a year or more, and everyone had a comment of how great I looked. I guess deep down I was hoping for a more drastic change, but my face is substantially thinner, and I fit into a size smaller...which is hit or miss on the brand, but I'm taking it.
Schooling is stressful as always, and I am coming up on finals next week. My work/professional life is amazing, and I truly love my job. Family is awesome as ever, and we have a ton of events coming up (our one year wedding anniversary included). Little Miss is doing well, and I am just really happy. Losing weight or not, I am happy. I know I have a ways to go, but am no longer stressed about it.
I will admit that I have been stuck in this baby mode for some time, and it has been decided that in June we will start trying to have a baby. I know this is going to screw with my weight loss plans, but if I can drop anything really, I'll be happy. I wanted to be at 150 when I get pregnant, and I think I could probably be down to 170.
My OB/GYN told me that even if I got pregnant, by watching what I eat, and doing light exercising, I should still be able to drop weight, and it would be healthy...so that's a plus.
I'm off. Decided to take a break from studying, and hold myself accountable for hiding from no one else than...myself.
I have been keeping up with blogs of those I follow, and you ladies are truly amazing. I need to gather some of your inspiration, and make it happen.
- Until next time.
