I didn't make any progress in November. It was a rough month as I wasn't feeling well in October and it hung over into November. I went to see my dr and she did some blood tests. After that I started on a new med the week before Thanksgiving and ended up with a bad reaction to the med. I was in the hospital for 2 days and am still having residual effects of the reaction. With all that said, I'm not fretting over the lost month. I still have a few weeks left in the year so as long as I don't gain 10lbs in the next few weeks I will show a loss overall.
I have something else to work towards now so hopefully that will help with my motivation. Fairly soon I will be a Godmother again and the Baptism is in April so I would like to lose as much as my slowest loser body will allow between now and then.
With all the crazyness I haven't made much progress in the last 2 weeks on my virtual walk. The day before I ended up in the hospital I had walked over a mile and half but since then I haven't logged any miles even though I have been walking more on my appointments for work. I also have gotten away from cooking. It's Friday and the only meal my DH and I have eaten together this week was Monday dinner which was beans and rice. There has been some family drama and my wonderful husband as stepped into a role that he shouldn't have to do but someone has to step up. Unfortunately it has taken him away from home more often than either of us expected as well as given us an unexpected houseguest now and then. Things will be coming to a head on Tuesday so hopefully the situation will calm down after that but there really is no way to know.
I feel like our lives have been a never-ending roller-coaster of family drama and medical problems for almost the last two years. I know this has had some impact on my slow weight loss journey as well as my PCOS but it would be really nice if 2012 was either a spectacular year of good things or really, really boring.
