Weigh In Wednesday - Week 17

I eeeked out a two pound loss this week.

I know some of you guys don't follow me on Instagram so I wanted to let you know about what I wrote over there.  I've been having some female problems that have gotten worse over the past year or so.  I had my yearly physical at the GYN and he's recommending hysterectomy.  I was very emotional at the doctor's office but now that I've thought about it for a while I feel like this a smart option for me.  I'm in a terrible amount of pain during my periods.  And lately I've been having trouble days leading up to my period and during ovulation time.  He said my uterus was quite large and it shouldn't be.  Normal uteruses are the size of a small apple and mine is the size of a cantaloupe.

This will be a slow process, I don't even go back until mid February for an ultrasound to measure my fibroids.  They also took some blood yesterday, I think he was worried about anemia.  Now that the initial shock has set in, I'm mostly worried about the surgery part.  I've already had 2 surgeries that will be very similar and I know how much it sucks.  That said, there's isn't much I can do, I will ask all the questions I can to ease myself but I've come to know often they don't know what they are dealing with until they get in there.  In times like this I often find comfort in the words, "this too shall pass."  You can go through the suckiest thing but it will pass, one day it's part of your past, and you move on.

Milestone Award - 40 Pounds!

January has been sort of a rough month for me.  My numbers are not where I want them to be but that shouldn't take away from the fact that I've lost 40 pounds since October 1st.  This is a big deal.

Weigh In Wednesday - Week 16

Well, you have to subtract out the .8 I gained last week during my period.  And then share this loss with last week so essentially I lost 1.5 pounds last week and 1.5 pounds this week.  I want to complain about that but I'm not going to.  I seem to be having a little more difficulty losing weigh this month than last month, which seems crazy because last month was Christmas and you'd think that would be the difficult month.  I feel like my calories are on point but I'm just not seeing the same numbers.

There's really not much I can do about that but focus on the positives.  And there's quite a few coming up.  1) I'm about to be at 40 pounds lost, which is amazing. 2) I'm about cross the weight I was after my appendectomy in 2013 (2012?), which is the lowest weight I've seen since my wedding weight, 3) I'm about to cross my wedding weight.  Besides that brief moment after my surgery, I haven't seen numbers like this since I got married in 2005! 4) And you can't forget about Onderland. I'm hoping to hit Onederland before Valentine's Day.  I don't even know if that's still possible.  December's weights would have made it possible but I don't even know if I'm going to lose 10 pounds this month, which is a goal.

But it doesn't matter, goals are just destinations, when I reach them doesn't really matter as long as I do.  All I have to do is keep going.  I'm amazed at how far I've come so far and it really starts to get fun after I hit Onederland and get out of plus sized clothes and bra and swimsuits.

I'm so excited!!!

Weigh In Wednesday - Week 15 - URRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH

I hate my period!!!! I don't understand why I cannot lose weight on my period.  It's like everything just shuts down and goes into hibernation.  I'm so bummed and depressed about it but there's nothing I can do.  I can only wait until my body will respond to me.

Weigh In Wednesday - Week 14

A pretty good week, though I've stalled for 3 days, I blame Chipotle, I may have to stop going there.

I'm really just gunning for Onederland at this point, I guess I've been doing that all along though.

NSV - Measurements!

For fun, I decided to start taking my measurements once a month.  I started last month so I was pretty excited to find out the changes today.

The only one I'm really iffy about is the thigh.  I might not be at the exact same point on my thigh, which is why I'm not a big fan of measurements but it's fun to see anyway.
