Going down in weight again

Monday, March 21, 2011

So last week Sunday I weighted in at my mom's house and weighted 286.5

Today I stepped on the scale and am 273

That is a loss of 13.5 pounds in a week and one day. Granted it is from being sick and it is not inches I am seeming to be loosing. My throat is still in a lot of pain and over the counter medicines are not working. So my mom said it may be my tonsils since they were not taken out as a kid. Then yesterday my mom looked in my mouth and said yea your tonsils are swollen. So I guess the next day I have off work I have to go pay a fortune to some dr to tell me to go take prescriptions which is going to cost even more that I don't have. I am just hoping I don't need surgery on them. I can't find any insurance.

    I did do 10 min of cardio exercise and a little streanght training with free weights this morning because I had energy and my sick baby was still sleeping and my son was already off on the bus to school. I know muscle burns more fat, so I am hoping to build a little muscle each week so the weight will continue to come off. I have a lot more to get rid of.

    13.5 is a lot of weight to lose in 8 days. Granted, it was due to being sick and, like you said, was likely to fat loss.

But, perhaps, by adding some daily strength training to your exercise routine, you might be able to maintain that. Just alternate muscle groups on a daily basis. I'm not sure what (or, if) you're already doing related to strength training.

I'm actually doing very little, personally. But, I try to do 3 minutes a day 3-4x a week, and would like to increase that. If I alternate things like arms, legs and abs, I could easily do it 6-7x a week, and, on some days, more than one thing.

Hope your tonsil stuff improves without surgery.

Sick as can be

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

So on Sunday I woke up with a sore throat and runny nose. Later that day it increased to fever of 102, chills, nausea, and severe head ache, body ache.

So my brother in law made me some thera flu tea, and I went to bed for a few hours.

Woke up feeling better, still hoarse throat.

The next day I felt better a little all I had was a head ache and sore throat

This darn sore throat is not getting any better. I can't taste anything and it hurts to swallow.
I know I should go to the dr but with hubby's recent medical bills from a surgery and hospitalization and me not having insurance I don't know if I can afford it. Don't worry if it keeps up much longer I will go in and find a way to pay for it.

The plus side is I have lost weight thanks to not being able to swallow too much.
I have been able to handle jello, tea, juice, and applesauce.

Today I am going back to isagenix shakes for nutrion, because I can handle drinking things.

I weighted in at my mom's house on Saturday at 286.5 after a melt down. My sister made the comment that we could take our kids to bouncin bears which is an inflatable bounce play house place here and I said no way it is not safe for kids under 3 and my daughter is 2.

My sister responded by saying oh well that is why I go up the bouncy houses with my son(her son is 2 yrs old too). We I responded I can't go in the bouncy houses I am too big. That is what made the waterworks turn on for me.

What a weird mood I am in

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

I got up this morning and took a pregnancy test because I was two days late. Negitive test and four hours later I started and feel so very sick. On the one hand I have always wanted to have a very large family and being a mom of only 2 children and just having my 29th birthday last weekend I was really hoping that maybe I would be pregnant again as my youngest is 2 and a half. But on the other hand I am still on this weight loss journey and medically should loose this stupid weight before I honestly should concieve another child.
So now I am in a weird mood. I want to loose the weight but I want to be pregnant.

    If you think about getting pregnant all the time it will not happen, don't think about it and see where it will take you. If and when it happens let me know, you still have a couple of years left. It will happen, good luck.

    I was not really planning a reward for this one because I did not really realize it as a goal untill I stepped on the scale but I may now.

Just don't know what to do

Sunday, January 30, 2011

I had no idea that the water I was getting from Walmart had aspertame in it. I also had no idea how dangerous aspertame is.
Here is what I found online after being told in a child care food program class about the dangers of aspertame.

From 10,000 consumer complaints the FDA compiled a list of 92 Symptoms reported from aspartame use, including death.

FDA list of 92 aspartame-related symptoms:

、bdominal Pain
、nxiety Attacks
、rthritis, Asthma
、sthmatic Reactions
・dema (Fluid Retention)
。lood Sugar Control Problems (Hypoglycemia or Hyperglycemia)
。rain Cancer (Pre-approval studies in animals)
。reathing Difficulties
。urning Eyes or Throat
。urning Urination
,an't Think Straight
,hest Pains

,hronic Fatigue
・xcessive Thirst or Hunger

Also Splenda is clorinated in processing
Equal has been proven to cause cancers
and so much more.

I did learn though that Stevia and agave nectar, sugar cane sugar, molasses, brown rice syrup and honey are healthier options than products that are chemically altered. I am definetly changing my way of eating.
