So I have said this before but prior to May 2nd I was not working out and eating terribly. I deserved to gain some of my baby weight back. It was that day that I have made serious changes. I am not perfect, but I have stopped sabotaging myself with food. I wont say that I dont have a cookie now and then, but I am not having cookies three days a week.
After I had my son in March 2012, I decided to get back on the birth control shot Depo provera. I had been on it before and not had problems. Boy was that a big mistake. I lost all of my baby weight initially, and was feeling much better. After I started getting the shots my weight started climbing back up.
Fast forward to May 2013. I started back to Jazzercise, and since then I have been to 26 classes so far. 17 of them have been in the month of June. Needless to say I have been putting my work in. I decided to try and experiment. Last Saturday I weighed and measured myself. After going to 5 Jazzercise classes this week and eating fairly good, I measured today. How is it that I have gained 2 pounds, gained a half inch in my bust, an inch and half in my waist, and an inch in my hips???? What is going on here?
It has to be the Depo. I have read so many horror stories online of women gaining weight and tons of it no matter what they do. I feel so defeated! I am doing what I can do to be healthy and no matter what the pounds are packing on. I go to my doctor on July 9th, and am changing medications. Hopefully my body will rid itself of this toxin soon so I can watch the scale go down and not up.
I will not give up though..no matter what. I will continue my journey to health and wellness! Wish me luck!
