It's taking FOREVER to lose these last few pounds! I've decided that if I don't like the way I look at 150, I'm going to keep going. My mom thinks I'm crazy and actually said I look 'Too Thin' today but I don't see it. 120 would be THIN to me, not 161 which is where I'm at right now. She's just not used to seeing me this small because I've been heavy or so many years.

Wow Kim that is wonderful....almost to goal! You are an inspiration

4 lbs is excellent Amandie, I'll take that 4 pound loss please,lol!

I haven't been posting lately because I went on a trip to New York to visit my sister. Just got back. I hadn't been there in years and I had a great time that included lots of good restaurants and good food! As you can guess I was bad. I also came back with a really bad cold but I need to weigh in. Hopefully it won't be too bad because we did a lot of walking. We'll see

Morning!

Heading to the gym in a little bit for a run and trying out my first Yoga Class. I'm a little nervous because I'm not sure if I can do all of the poses and I don't want to look like a complete idiot! It's worth a shot and if I don't like it at least I can say I tried it at least once in my life. Today is the start of a new week for me and when I tallied up my calorie burn for the entire week it came out to a whopping 9307! My 2.8 loss is right around what I burned because 3500 calories equals 1 pound.

This week I plan to continue running EVERYDAY as I have been doing for the past 2 weeks with only one rest day. I found that running is helping my anxiety tremendously and it's become one of my new favorite addictions. Never in my entire life did I EVER think I'd become a runner but I am and LOVE IT!

Hope everyone is having an awesome week!

Going to Zumba tonight, can't wait!

I envy all of you young chics who can exercise and run and go to classes. I waited too long to lose my weight and have such bad knees can hardly walk, much less run, etc. I did buy a chair with exercise ropes attached and comes with a video to exercise while sitting down and am starting today. This is the best thread and best bunch of people I have found for support and positive thinking! I am a psychiatric nurse and my knee was injured 10 years ago by an adolescent patient that was upset but wasn't able to get it fixed, so had to keep working to support my family and tore it up more and more by walking on it and thus gained weight because not able to get around very much. BUT, that is no excuse to continue to work at losing. I have struggled with this all of my life, been on every diet in the world and I know WWs works. I started awhile back but had some more personal problems going on so stopped once again. Back on it full force today and I do read the posts daily but I think I need to post every day to be accountable. My other problem is not being able to walk through the store to get the groceries I need to stick with it, so much easier to go through drive through, and that is still doable but such a challenge or temptation I should say and I just HATE to ask others to do things for me such as getting my groceries for me, even though they say they don't mind. Kim, I do admire how you are facing your anxiety head on instead of just saying you can't deal with anything because of your illness. My son suffers from anxiety and panic attacks and he struggles daily. Before I injured my knee, before I went into nursing I lost 110 lbs but soon as I entered nursing school (at a later age) I gained it all back quickly because of the stress and lack of exercise. Amazing how quickly it came back after all of that work. I've always looked for the faster plan but now I realize that slow and steady is the way to go. I have so much to lose but at least I lose fast at first and that will give me a big boost. Sorry to be so long winded but needed to get it out there. Thanks!

Thanks My rings- that I was considering getting resized as they have been so loose- are leaving marks on my finger- I am retaining that much water this time around, lucky me I have a specialist appt next week for issues concerning my TOM anyways, I may ask for a diuretic for such times.

So...I'm officially 8 days late on my period with 2 negative tests.


Here's what worries me...when I was pregnant with the twins, I didn' show a positive test until 2 months in. But I don't know. I have no PMS signs at all. No sore boobs. No water retention. The only cramping I've had is from constipation and some gas (thanks to my meds...TMI I know).


I'm really nervous about being pregnant again...one because with all of my health issues, IDK if my body can take it. Secondly, I have two 15 month olds...who would not even be two yet when I had another baby (or babies...eek). Third reason is...I don't know if I'm emotionally ready for another baby yet. and lastly...I'm *FINALLY* 2 lbs below my initial weight in at my first prenatal appintment with the twins...and I'm deinitely back on the weight loss track. I don't want to have to put the weight los off and then have to try to get back on track afterwards. I'd rather be at goal and get pregnant again...blah.


IDK...I figure I'll give it another week and call the doctor to get a blood test done if I don't have a period or a positive test. I'm hoping I'm just overreacting and then I'll get my period and look silly for freaking out.


DH and I did some serious fighting...I definitely did some emotional cupcake eating today...I wont lie...I had 4, but they fit within my points and weeklies...so I don't feel so bad. I reckognized what I did...and it could have been worse. And I wont lie...the Watermelon cupcake my coworker made...totally worth the points...it was fabulous.

Excited to weight in on Monday morning. I went to my Hip Hop Dance class on Tuesday. I was very sore all day yesterday, with all my joint and ther pain issues, I'm not surprised, but I felt pretty good. I wanted to go to Zumba on Wednesday night, but I was too sore. My thighs hurt so bad I could barely walk by the end of the day. I'm hoping to go to Zumba tomorrow night and then do Zumba Mon, Wed. and Fri. and just kind of forget the Hip Hop class. My best friend has a free pass for a guest to her gym, so once I don't get as stiff anymore, I'm going to start going with her the days I don't go to classes. I'm pumped.

Work has been insane! I've been working 12 hour days for two weeks now. Working 10 hour days for the month preceding. I had to completely give up my regular workout, but that's behind me now. Today I have to clean up my house and tomorrow, I'm back in the gym. I've still managed to lose about 1 lb. a week over the past six weeks, but I really miss those 2+ lbs. weeks from before. In any event, I'm glad that I was still able to lose despite the lack of workouts. I haven't told my leader at WW that I'm back on Momentum, but I think she suspects since I have the gold booklet on me and not the blue one.

I know it's easier said than done but try not to worry Do you have Thyroid issues? I know when I wasn't taking my medication regularly (I was bad at taking it everyday), I wouldn't have a period for the entire month. Sometimes this would happen every other month and it scared the **** out of me because I already have 3 kids! My husband had a Vasectomy after our third but the doctor said there is still a small chance I could get pregnant.

Everything is going to be just fine!

Morning!

I'm a little frustrated this morning, I think I may have hit my very first plateau. Everyday this week my home scale says I am 162.4, that means I'm going to show a gain at my meeting Wednesday. Last Tuesday I weighed in AFTER I worked out and was down 2.8lbs for that week. For some reason I weigh less after I have a really good workout which is odd. I know I'm eating enough because I make sure to consume my activity points each day so I'm not sure what the issue is. I suppose I'm just going to have to suck it up and deal with what the scale at my meeting says..

On a happier note, I ran 6.5 miles yesterday morning and while my legs ached, I felt fantastic afterward! My goal has been to work myself up to running half of a half marathon and I did it. I've been training for the 5K I'm running on the 16th for months now and I'm so excited because I know I will be able to run the entire race, it's a HUGE accomplishment. Hopefully I can get someone to take a picture of me crossing the finish line so I can post it here!

My anxiety is much better and while I still have intrusive thoughts every now and again, the running and medication is really helping. I seriously thought I was going crazy but when I came across a forum for people who experience the same issue, I didn't feel so alone. I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow and I'm sure she is going to increase the Zoloft to 100mg and I'm hoping the increase takes away the anxiety and thoughts completely.

Hope everyone has an awesome week! I'm getting my kiddos off to school heading out for a quick run, then off to school I go.
