So, I think I'm back...again! I've been saying that a lot this past summer but something always came up w/ me. Being a person who goes from 100 to 30 in the matter of a few hours is very frustrating. I know that I can get the weight off, but having medical issues makes that focus blinded A LOT!
I went to the U last week after having that really bad flu the week before. I'm still spells of coughing because of that darn flu too, that's yet another delay to not being able to work out. The doc at the U didn't really know what to say because I'm not in the midst of a flare up. I think they forget that chances are when you're sick & you try to get into a speciality doc that you're not going to get in & you're waiting for a couple of weeks at least. With him, it took 5 mos. Anywho, I saw the pile of paperwork for my case that was sent there & it was at least 3 inches thick. He was honest in saying that he only flipped through it & that he would look more into it afterwards & he re-ran all of the tests ie: Lupus, Sjogrens etc. I was tested for all of those things last year, but apparently things change?! So again I wait! My thyroid I'm suppose to go & follow up w/ an endocronlogist & see what they have to say. I'm just going to wait until I hear from the doc @ the U first so I can take that report w/ me too. So, that's the info from here.
This summer my weight fluxuated up to 156 & I'm currently down to 151. The flu most likely helped in that department. Hopefully now that I'm feeling better I can get on the elliptical & get things moving again. I know if my thyroid is really goofed up that that also plays a role in this weight loss thing. Guess we'll see. I'd like to get 10 lbs off by Thanksgiving. At least it's a reasonable goal I think & if I work out everyday I will get there. I just have to listen to my body & take care of me in the process.
To all my girls on the chit chat board, thank you, thank you, thank you. You guys continue to inspire me. Hugs.

So this year of weight loss had brought on many different realities in my life. One now that has me on hold. I have been holding this weight consistantly for a few months. I've stayed consistant w/ my work outs, running, walking, combined running & walking & nothing. NO changes in on weigh in. Only up when aunt flow is coming for her monthly visit.
I didn't take any measurements when I started, but I can see the changes in my legs & rear for sure along w/ my face when I see pics. Other than that, not much changing going on over here. It's just frustrating when you keep trying & NOTHING MOVES.
I'm making myself more accountable & paying more attention to what I'm eatting again. I have to get in my water which is a daily struggle. I'm back to registering everything I eat which should help out. On my "off" days from working out I plan on doing a little strength training w/ squats, wall push ups, some jj's for my girls on the thread I've been skipping out on for awhile :(. My hubby has said that he'll bike w/ the boys & I the days that I don't have to work or some times before work if time & weather permit. That I'll do even if I have worked out (my work outs are walking & jogging) I love biking, so now that the weather is getting better I look forward to getting out there w/ the boys & getting some freash air.
I hope these changes will reflect on the scale soon. Any suggestions are appreciated. I'm looking at getting that Slim in 6 work out DVD's too. Anyone own them & are they worth it????
Okay, it's 1 am almost. Gotta go to bed.

So...the first week was great; like anything new that you start. I find myself having to motivate myself just to get on the treadmill this week! I know I feel better about myself and better just in general after I'm done working out. I just wish the ambition came easier. I really don't have anything to blame it on really except for lack of time; but who has time unless you make it right?
Last night was a busy night. I did good w/ my eatting during the day...but wknds @ our house are so up in the air when we have all 5 kids. I knew I was in for a late dinner after work since we had plans w/ the kids. But what was for dinner???? PIZZA: with everything on it. I over indulged! It tasted good, but now I feel guilty.
I'm mid-week since I weigh in on Weds. So I'll have to kick it in gear and get on the treadmill :)
