So I went back on the BC pill and used it for what I needed it for (to change my 'friend' so that it doesn't fall ON my wedding day, like it would have). Yes, just my luck! It's been 3 full months and I feel like hell.
I've gotten sick, and had a pretty horrible recurrent sinus/ear infection which defeated the purposes of even being on the pill when we had to worry about antibiotic/steroid use for a month. Then the fun prednisone that makes you starving on top of it all, when the antibiotic doesn't make you so nauseous you want to sit over the toilet all morning. My sinuses are completely plugged up still (even though the infection is gone). For those of you that know me, I have sinus problems regardless but I've been 100% fine since I had my tubes put in my ears. If you ask me it's more than just a coincidence that the first time I've gotten sick in 6 months happens to be when I'm back on the pill (levora). I feel like there is a cow sitting on my lungs all all times b/c I have such extreme shortness of breath. I've had odd anxiety issues that come up out of the blue. All of these things that have come back, some of which I thought was weight related before. I have stomach aches almost daily & extreme bloating. Come to find out most are side effects listed in my pamphlet for this pill! Grrrreeeaaaaaatttttttt
I've been keeping up a lot of my walking & moving around but haven't been able to do my full high intensity workouts due to the severe shortness of breath. I've been STARVING all of the time and feel like a little pig eating all day long (granted I try to make most of these healthy snacks) but I'm ALWAYS hungry! It's SO frustrating after coming this far and especially since our wedding is only a little over 4 months away. I have a constantly full bloated belly. So I'm DONE! I'm not going to torture myself. I'm not happy being on it, it's fit it's purpose and I want my healthy body back! I took my last active pill last night and I'm through!
I've only put on a few pounds (still too many) but feel like a totally different person & I refuse to see the 140's on the scale! Give me back my old healthy toned body!!!!!!!! I'm bringing that flat belly BACK! Only 3 weeks until our family beach vacation in the Outer Banks. I want to rock my bikini and feel confident not that I need to cover up and hide! I want to, and will have a rockin body on my wedding day! For me, being on the pill makes this an impossibility. I WILL do this and I will get back to feeling great about myself. No matter HOW hard I try I can not lose weight while being on the pill. It's crazy. Who knew one little pill could ruin everything (well I did but I didn't have much of a choice this time around). I need to be able to enjoy my honeymoon!!!
