I am so incredibly proud of myself and all that I have achieved since the beginning of November.


Side effect "constant hunger"

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

I had a bad allergic reaction to a facial lotion and my face, neck, and ears have broken out in hives. My neck is covered in large red splotches. I was prescribed a steroid and its side effects are "constant hunger and thirst, and bloating." I'm really upset about this because for the last 6 1/2 weeks I've been going so strong. I have lost almost 23 pounds and my waist is almost 4 inches smaller in that time and this setback is disheartening. The good thing is the hunger goes away once you stop taking the meds and thankfully I will only be on them for 5 days. I just hope it works wonders on my face because right now I feel like an ogre. When I was at Target to get my prescription I kept my coat zipped up to cover my neck, hood on over my forehead and sunglasses on to cover my swollen, red eyes. I will probably not weigh myself on January 3rd as planned. I'll keep you updated.

  Oh Lordy! My condolences! What really awful side effects!

But you will soon go off this nasty medicine. And once off this medicine you will regain your Self and your weight loss and your accomplishments.

It's awful now. But things will get better for you, and you will succeed.

Month 1 is almost over.

Friday, November 30, 2012

It is hard to believe I've been going at this for over 4 weeks. Besides the 2 cheat days I allowed, I've kept on track. I've gone over by 100-150 calories a couple times, but I don't fret about it. I haven't wavered and I'm still as motivated today as I was 30 days ago. Something is different about this time. I'm ready.

Water intake

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

I feel like I wasted an entire week of potential weight loss by not drinking enough water. I was unknowingly not drinking nearly as much as I thought. I lost only .6 even though I stayed under 1,400 calories/day and my protein and carb intake was good.

How much water do you shoot for every day?


Anthem ad on Sparkpeople

Friday, March 16, 2012

Does it enrage anyone else? The constant pop-down ad really pisses me off! It always seems to show up when I'm in the middle of typing or tracking something. GRRRRR!, PLEASE GET RID OF THIS AD, or at least disable it so it doesn't pop up.
