I haven't updated here in awhile, though I have still been working hard on my goals. Today I stepped on the scales to see 249.5. I've FINALLY seen the last of the 250s (hopefully). I've been going up and down in the 250s for months, partly because of being derailed with my exercise program due to severe fatigue. After talking to my doctor, she put me on a medication for PCOS. I am feeling better, am no longer losing hair, and just in general feel more motivated to continue. I'm proud to say that even during those months of fatigue, I didn't completely lose it and go back to my old eating habits. That's what helped me maintain through that rough time.
To help keep exercise fun, I am going to start swimming at a local rec center. I love to swim, but loathe anything to do with swimsuits or showing off anything more of my body than absolutely necessary (I don't even wear shorts). I have a swimsuit ordered, and I will have no more excuses not to go once it arrives. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I generally have a lot of anxiety over new experiences anyway, and this will be even more so with walking around showing off so much skin, but I'm determined to expand my comfort zone to include such things in my life.
