Weigh Day - Week 110

Friday, April 26, 2013

Bread Experiment = Starts today! Wish me luck! I've ordered the "Wheat Belly" book in order to do some more research on the subject.

Empowered Patient = I've also "fired" my current doctor, if she won't help me find a reason for my fatigue, someone else will. The woman has been obsessed with my weight and when I showed her my article in the friggin' Huffington Post about losing 100lbs, she didn't even look at it! I got a nod, and a small one at that. I have never felt fully supported by her and have to insist on things in order to get things done. She's got to go! I found another female doctor closer to my home who seems really great, we shall see! I took a bunch of blood tests yesterday evening to check my thyroid, etc so hopefully I'll get some answers soon. My lungs are clear and my heart is fine, so unless it's my thyroid or some nutrient I'm seriously lacking, it's got to be what I'm eating.

Nutrition = Not as good as it should be. I've been the snacking queen lately, eating after I've had a perfectly good/satisfying dinner. I HAVE kept up my consumption of freggies which is good I guess. I stopped tracking and honestly, stopped caring. It's been a hard week altogether.

Water Intake = Excellent.

Exercise = Non-existent because of exhaustion, laziness and from my inability to care.

1). I don't know if this is an NSV or not, but I guess it shows that sizes really vary from store to store. A large at Old Navy is big on me while a medium is perfect. If I tried that at the Gap, I'd find the exact opposite. Annoying right? It never gets lost on me that I don't have to go to the 2XL sections anymore, it's still just as amazing as it was 6 months ago. I'm grateful.

2). I'm up half an inch in both my thighs and my arms which can only mean that the strength training I did this month is working! I'm just hoping it's muscle and NOT fat.

We're back to the show this weekend and I must say, I've missed my show/cast. I also look forward to my mini vacation this weekend which is always fun. Here's to a better weekend!

I just wanted to publicly thank my fiancée BRITT831 for putting up with me and my sadness this week. If she had not stuck with me in my darkest moments, I would not be here. I'm forever grateful for her and her love. This week was an extremely hard one, but she never left my side. THANK YOU B. We'll be taking our engagement pictures in July!

Thank you for all of your advice and love SparkBuddies, I'm grateful!
Have an excellent weekend!

    First off, Oh my gracious, the two of you are beaming! Awesome.
    You are doing so well! Give yourself some credit. Hard work is paying off.
    I am SO SUPER FANTASTICALLY Estatic that you broke up with your doc!!!
    I am really hoping the new one listens and supports you!

    I think you will find a huge swing in your energy once you are about a week into your wheat belly diet.

    First 'n' foremost - you two look fantastic together!! Congratulations to you both!! You sound wonderfully loving and supportive of each other :)

    Second - wowzers! We're going to have to start calling you the Incredible Shrinking MissB if you keep this up - you are getting downright petite, and at warp speed, too!! What an inspiration you are to all of us - and your positivity is as tangible as it is delightful!

    All the best to all the bestest! - Susan emoticon

    I'm glad that you got rid of your doctor. If your doctor can't support you, then it's not a good relationship. You just keep moving forward!

    great picture of 2 beautiful people.
    WHEAT BELLY is a great book...I learned a lot.
    And remember that running around all over and doing double time is also tiring...make sure you get quality nutrition. Make your snack healthy ones.
    Have you tried keeping a lunch bag of fresh fruit and nuts around?

    have a great weekend

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww ur so welcome, my luv! thats what Im here for - to love, care abt, and support u as much as I possibly can! We have been so good for each other. Im ready to start our lives together and see how we change the world!

    As for the weight loss journey, ur doing amazing STILL! I dont care if the numbers are going up or ur not tracking. U are taking an active role in being heathy and happy and thats what counts! Our bodies are ever changing and ever adapting (yeah, not fun) so we must learn to change and adapt with them. Unfortunatly that means making mistakes and learning from em. U got this, B! Dont let anyone tell u otherwise!

    I love you, girl!
