Thank you so much for your prayers Chern! I'm suing pretty good. Just finished my second week of work and am exhausted to say the least. I was released to go back to normal activities on Thursday so now I am trying to figure out a good beginner program to get myself back in the groove.

As far as supplements the only thing I'm on is Premarin which does seem to help a bit. Mood swings and hot flashes are no joke I'll tell you that! ;)

Other than that nothing much else is going on. My husband bought me some new pots and pans and we are getting a bigger refrigerator so we will start eating more healthy and a lot more at home. Me being down we got into the fast food habit bad. :(

Christi

Enjoying life! :)

Thanks Christi. I am keeping you in my prayers. Did the doctors give you supplements to take to help with the menopause? I am sure your friends understand. Hopefully your boys taking good care of you while you are in recovery :) Hang in there!

Happy belated birthday Chern!!

Man time really has flown by! Work has really picked up and now I get no computer time. It takes everything to even keep up with the work flow! It's funny even saying that since I've been gone for a month. I had my full hysterectomy on the 4th and have been recovering ever since. Not to be blunt but I can't have sex or work out which are two of my biggest stress relievers so I'm pretty tense and restless to say the least. I start back to work part time next week to ease myself back into the groove but they told me its gotten busier since I've been gone so I'm not sure how "easy" its going to be! LOL

In the process of being down I've gained all the weight that I previously lost and am back up to 160. I'm trying not to beat myself up over it and really trying to focus on my food since I can't work out but chocolate has been my emotional go-to especially since I'm having to face the fact that I will never have children again. It's a lot harder than what I thought it was going to be. I'm even avoiding all my friends that are pregnant or have babies because its too much for me to handle right now. OH and I'm also going through menopause! Since they took it all out it has pushed me into medically-induced menopause which I've heard is worse than when it comes naturally but it is also over quicker so I guess that's good.

I miss you guys SO much!! Christina-I hope you're doing good!!

Christi

Enjoying life! :)

Wow does time go by fast. I didn't realize how much time had gone by since I have been on sparkpeople. I love the new changes to the spark start page. Well I turned 28 last weekend and I feel pretty good about it. I feel more focused with two years left to make some goals happen for myself. One goal is to lose 100 pounds before I am 30 so 50 pounds a year, which comes almost to a pound per week - Totally possible :) Another goal is to be more social and hopefully find "Mr. Special" to spend my life with. I am in prayer for both and pray that in two years from now I can praise God for prayers answered if not sooner :)

I'm making some progress with the packing. We returned a bunch of furniture we were borrowing, so we have stuff lying around everywhere... combine with a 1.5 yo and this place is a mess!!! I have a bunch of friends coming over tomorrow to help pack. And tomorrow I loose my desk... going to a garage sale our friends are having. But internet is out on Friday, so I'm only missing 1 day. I might not get internet again until we get settled in Sept, so if that's the case I'll see you then! Take care! I'll miss you all!

I hope so too! I'm hoping to start packing today if the kids allow it.

My midwife said everything looks good, so I can go back to exercise and anything I was doing pre-pregnancy. Excited about that! Well, maybe... I guess I don't have much excuse to rest anymore except that I'm really sleepy! Haha!

OMG girl I totally forgot about you moving! We did the same thing when my youngest was only a few months old and my oldest was only 20 month. Not fun but I am thankful we did. Ours was a larger space so we could spread out!

How far are you moving? Is it still in the same area?

I always enjoy having sore abs! :)

My appointment with my midwife is tomorrow morning. Hoping for a good report. Getting ready to move next week, and I haven't started packing at all! If one kid doesn't need my attention, the other one does.... at some point I have to be able to pack! Lol!

LOL For real!!

This weekend was low key. I spent all day Saturday cleaning out my office/gym so I can start working out in there again. When I was sick it became my dumping pile but now its sparkling clean and ready for more gym equipment! L and me have decided to build our own home gym in the garage but until we can get the garage cleared out my office will serve dual purposes. I worked out in there last night and it wasn't bad at all! We still have the gym membership for now too so on the days I can make it up there I can do the moves I can't do at home. :)

My obstacle today is veing exhausted! I think I pushed myself too hard last night and I am feeling it today both being sore and tired. Legs day always does that to me. ;) Tonight is abs!!

You know, I didn't see any fireworks either. But both kids went to sleep at a decent hour, and baby boy slept 8 hours in a row... enough of a celebration for me! :)

Good timing on your session!

We're going to a friend's house for a bit tomorrow, but we won't be doing any fireworks b/c I just don't think I'd have fun being out so late w/ 2 tired kids! lol! Then we'll go to Sam's grandparents for the weekend. His grandma makes the best homemade desserts.... and serves them w/ EVERY meal... hopefully I don't gain all my weight back!

Thank you girl! I'm lucky that my doctor is super cool and laid back so I don't feel pressured but I'm not getting any younger so if we do want to have kids I would like to make the decision soon. Luckily I have my counseling appointment tonight so I can talk through everything that's happened this week. It should be an interesting session. LOL

So what are you guys doing for the 4th?

My mother in law had to have a hysterectomy for medical reasons too. Just don't let the doctor force you into making a decison before you're ready to! I don't think you need to rush without being able to think it all through and do your research. Praying for healing for you!

Sorry I too have been MIA. I was at work Wednesday and after lunch I started having trouble breathing and felt like I was having a heart attack so we called an ambulance and to the ER I went. Long story short it wasn't a heart attack thank goodness but a severe panic attack. It was so bad even a week later my chest is still sore. :(

Then I go to my well woman exam this morning and my gynecologist is recommending I consider a hysterectomy. I feel so conflicted but he wants me to make a decision soon so I am talking to L and praying about it. I can't remember a life without pain so if this will help most of my pain I probably will go for it.

Hi Chern! Reno?! How fun!! I would go back to Vegas in a heartbeat. I love Nevada! It's so easy to get a lot of walking when you're there and congrats on not gaining anything! Another vacation?? You are so lucky! My three day honeymoon was all the vacation I get. Actually since my boss is away to tend to her sick mom I've had to take on more hours! It has not been the best summer so far but I am just trying to take it all day by day and focus on what needs to be done today.

Christina you brave girl!! I remember my first outings too. They are scary but man does it feel good to actually get out and feel human again! LOL And yes I would totally count carrying a baby around as exercise. ;)

I missed my workout this morning because I slept late (I am just mentally and physically exhausted right now) but I packed my gym bag and right after counseling I am heading straight to the gym. NO EXCUSES!! I'm about to go print off my workout so I will be prepared. I also packed some healthy goodies for work since sleeplessness usually brings on chocolate cravings.

Didn't mean to write so much! LOL Hope you guys have a fantastic day!!

Christi

Hi gals!

Well I am back from my first vacation in Reno. Had a lot of fun. I was happy with coming back and getting on the scale that I only gained 1 pound. I knew with all the buffets and free drinks that it would pretty hard to come back with not gaining weight so I made it my focus to only take the stairs and get in a lot of walking which I think helped :) Now I leave for my next vacation next week.

Christi and Christina I am continuing to keep you gals in my prayers. Christina I love your profile pic, your son is so adorable! Christi I hope everything works out for you at work and you are able to get some sleep tonight.

You know I think that's really where my want is coming from. I miss being pregnant! That is so sweet about your daughter! My oldest was jealous of my baby I think but then again he was only a little over a year old when D was born and was on the fast track to the terrible 2's! LOL

Sorry about the lack of sleep! For the first night in a LONG time I slept decent! I didn't sleep as long as I'd like but what time I did sleep I slept deep. Got a good workout in this morning and tried a new pre-workout drink that I LOVED! I am getting more into the bodybuilding thing and this is something a lot of the trainers are recommending so I got a sample from a friend and I like it! If the budget allows I'm going to order some this weekend. :)

Way to go!! Keep up that energy! Yeah for loosing body fat!

I'm wanting to check my measurements again this weekend to see about progress. I lost one more pound over the last week, which is good enough for me! 5lbs. left to go until I'm at my pre-pregnancy weight and can start working on the extra weight from my first baby! Trying not to do too much, but still trying to move alot and eat as healthy as I can.

Back from all the weddings! Whew... I'm exhausted! We were on the road since last Wednesday with 2 babies... they really did well in the car though. Loved all the walking I got in during the wedding festivities, but didn't like all the fast food and junk I ate the past week!! No weight loss or gain, but I feel I'm wasting my weight burning time! ;)

My workout was not so great again tonight. I don't know if its my head or what but I can't get focused for some reason. I did do 15 on the elliptical and a few ab exercises so I did get some in but not like I was hoping. I am praying I sleep good tonight so I can have hope for tomorrows workout! LOL

I didn't get a chance to do my measurements last night. My ex called while I was at the gym and we got into it. Just when I feel like my life is drama free.... I did get 20 minutes in and tried not to beat myself up over it but I wasn't myself the rest of the night. Louie (my husband) was wonderful and told me, "At least you went to the gym and did something!" I love that man...

SO, I am going back tonight to finish the workout I started yesterday. I emotionally ate all last night so today I am feeling it. We are still having the noise at work too and my head is pounding. Don't you hate when life gets in the way?? I PLAN on doing my measurements tonight but I have a webinar at 9pm so depending on how long that is and when I get the kids down will determine if I do it or not. With how tight my pants are today I don't see it being pretty. :(

Hey Chern! I didn't know you had a DJ too! My Dylan is a DJ though we rarely call him that. We normally call him Pickle. ;) I am so glad we have been motivational to you! I know you guys have always been a motivation to me. :)

L tossed and turned all night last night which of course kept me up and tossing myself so I am not feeling very energetic today at all but I am determined to hit the gym! Today is ABS day!! Woohoo!! Then its off to feed my moms cats (they are on vacation for a few weeks) and hopefully home to pass out! Been trying to watch what I eat but my co-worker brought in a Chinese bundt cake and of course I had to try it! Delish! I'm guessing it was about 200 calories which isn't bad but it put me over my calories for the day. :( Oh well...I'm getting more active and becoming more aware of what goes into my mouth so its all good. :)

Christi

Enjoying life! :)

Hi Girls!
Congrats Christina on Daniel. I love the name that is what the D in DJ of my brother's name stands for. :) Christi I am glad that your MRI was able to answer some questions for you. Both of your gals' attitude has been a motivation booster for me so thanks:)

Go Us!

Oh me too! My problem is there are "sections" and I'm getting confused on which is which and where I start! LOL I did one of the mini workouts this morning and it felt great until my migraine knocked me back down. :( I'm still fighting though! I'm going to take baby steps until I get to where I want to be!

I am looking into starting a new fitness program actually. I am realizing I need more structure and not just a 'wing it' attitude when it comes to fitness so I found a program online that looks promising. I'm reading about it right now and it gets me excited! I hope (and pray) that this is the year that I get toned and stay that way!

I will tell you that the weight loss is different with boys. That's what I've heard and I still struggle myself. A lot of my weight gain was in my thighs and even when I got down to 128 a few years ago I still had bigger, thicker thighs and I think it was because of the boys because I never had thigh issues before them!

I love that you are keeping yourself active! That and watching what you eat and trying to eat clean is going to benefit you big time. I love that you are nursing too! I had to stop with both of mine early due to circumstances out of my control but yes that is a big calorie burner!! You go Mama!!!

Praying for you with the migranes! I'm still really sore from having the baby, but I'm trying to do a little more everyday. Even if I can't do big workouts yet, I can always do a little more than before. :)

I was hoping to loose 20lbs right off the bat with this one, since I lost that much in the first 3-4 days with my daughter, but I didn't. With my daughter I had gained 75lbs though, and so there was a LOT of water weight to loose. I'm just now hitting 20lbs lost today, which is 8 days in, but I'm glad there's still progress. Trying to at least eat well, to not negate all the calories I'm burning while nursing! ;)

Haha!! Yea I did the same thing. That's what was so scary after I had D (my second) the scale never moved! I was 185lbs when I had him and I was still that months later. I am so proud that you are so motivated!! Your motivation is definitely contagious! I've been battling a migraine these past few days but I am tired of making excuses on why I CANT do something and I need to start telling myself why I CAN!

That is great sweetie! I'm sure you'll lose the baby weight (and then some) in no time! I have such an obsession with my scale. It's sad. :( I have one that does my body fat percentage so that's the number I'm going to focus on...well that and my inches. I really need to update my measurements this weekend. I haven't measured since March.

The scale is such a rough way to gauge success! I took my measurements last week, and then I took them again Monday... so, I'm going to watch the inches go away. At least at the beginning there's pretty consistent movement, so I'm hoping that will encourage me to work at loosing the weight!

My oldest was barely jaundice too and yes the extra sunlight and time helped so I'm sure baby boy will be great soon! That is so good that you don't need the light. I was lucky to have insurance because those suckers are expensive!

My goal for today is to find a ST program that I am willing to stick to for the next few weeks. I'm definitely in a transition period with school letting out and all that but I am so ready to get focused. My goal is to hit my target body fat percentage by September 1st which is totally do-able. I am not going to gauge my success by the scale this time (at least the weight part of the scale! LOL)

Well, and you have to know that you ARE pushing yourself, it's just not at such a high level as before. As you get more in shape, you should be able to do a little more and more before the blood pressure starts affecting you, I would think.

Baby boy is a little jaundiced. Not enough for light treatment (which is good b/c we don't have insurance!), but enough that we're keeping him near the windows for a little sun, and monitoring how much he eats and poops. Hopefully it will wear off soon! We'll go back to the doctor on Friday to check his levels again.

Wow girl! You are blessed! LOL WTG hubby!! I hope baby boy is good! D had jaundice when he was first born so we had to do the light treatments for a few days and then he was fine. I'm sure he'll be great. I am so happy for you!! I know right now is an adjustment but you'll get the hang of it in no time.

My workout was decent I guess. Working out with high blood pressure is going to be an adjustment. I did the stairmaster and when my heart rate started getting higher I got dizzy and felt nauseated so I backed off. I hate that I can't push myself like I used to but at least I am doing something which is better than nothing.

Glad that your MRI went well!! I'll be praying for your checkup on Friday! How did your workout go?

We're doing well. Went and checked baby boy for jaundice today after his first doc appt... since he had some yellowing. They haven't called back to tell me what the levels were at, so I'm hoping they are at an acceptable level. I'm pretty tired, and I have to say I have an amazing husband who has been working really hard to try to let me rest! I haven't even changed a diaper yet (on either kid) since baby boy was born on Friday. Probably will change tonight though since DH is gone to play basketball for a few hours now that our daughter is sleeping. Just waiting for little boy to wake up and eat!!! I'd forgotten how much you need them to eat at the beginning to get the swelling to go down!

I just got a call back on my MRI. There are spots on my brain that do show that I have migraine activity so I am officially diagnosed with migraines. Woohoo! (not really....) I also have a sinus infection so they put me on antibiotics for that but other than that my MRI was good! emoticon That takes some weight off of me for real. I have my ultrasound on Friday morning and they're going to do a pelvic exam that's like a pap smear but isn't a pap so that should be fun. I've had ovarian cysts before and she is thinking I have another one. I'm wondering if she's thinking about taking the ovary that keeps getting the cyst but I'm not sure. Right now I am celebrating that I only have a sinus infection!! LOL

Tonight is my first night at the gym! My goal is 30 minutes of cardio and at least three strength training moves. I'm still looking for a good beginner program but I'm nervous. I've failed so many times I don't want this to be another failed attempt.

So Mama-how is the baby? How are you handling two kiddos?

I am excited too but its about something totally unrelated to babies...we got a gym membership together!!! We signed up this evening and am going to start going tomorrow. I am SOO excited!!! I am also going for an MRI first thing in the morning which has me nervous but getting the gym membership has definitely been helping keep my mind off of things. I'll keep you ladies posted.

Well, not off on the due date for sure! My little Daniel was born Friday morning at 3:29am. He weighs 11lbs. and is 22 inches long. His little chest is bigger around than his head! Stout little fellow! :) So glad he's finally here!!!

I can't tell you how motivated I am by reading your post!!! I went to the doctor Tuesday and she put me on blood pressure meds. I've only taken one dose but am already starting to feel a tad better which gives me hope. I think if I could not feel so exhusted all the time I would be more motivated. They tested my thyroid and all my levels so far are good so she is running more tests. I am praying they find what's wrong with me so I can start feeling good again!

I love that you guys are back on here! I've missed US so much! LOL

Hi Gals! A wedding and a Baby WooHoo! Although I have not been able to be online these past months I have been keeping you both in my prayers. I can't wait till it's my turn to share God willing about getting married and having a baby. It's no fun being single when your not a person who likes the party scene. Anyways, I have been maintaing my workout routines for the past month and I have lost 10 pounds :) With the heat of summer here in Southern California I have turned to having protien smoothies for dinner and eating most of my calories earlier in the day. I feel more energized and life is good! Today was my last day of work until August 7th. Yay for Summer Vacation!!! My goal this summer and by the grace of God it will happen is to be productive this summer with a healthy lifestyle and go back to the new school year being refreshed and healthier to finish 2013 with a strong momentum to reaching my ultimate goals.

I wish continued blessings to you both! Go Us!

OMG do I know that feeling! When I had D I had a 15 month old who had just started walking and it was a record year with triple digit heat and no rain for months in July. Oh and the cherry was my doctor pushing my due date back two weeks. I look back and wonder how I made it through but by Gods grace I did and I know you will too. :)

OK so here goes (and I apologize if I have to cut it short. I'm at work-hehe)...

The wedding was wonderful! I had a meltdown the day before when things started to get a little crazy but Louie (my husband) was wonderfully calm and helped me keep my wits. The day of my hairdresser was late which made everything else late. I missed a lot of pre-pictures with my photographer which upsets me since I didn't have time to do a bridal portrait but that's ok. The ceremony was perfect, the reception WAY too quick, and everything for the most part went as planned.

Vegas was awesome!!! We were only there for two full days and had a blast! Louie had reserved a penthouse suite at one of the new, very fancy hotels there and wow...I could've spent the entire honeymoon in that room! Haha!! We did a lot of sightseeing, gambled $40 on a few slot machines and of course didn't win a dime, and had ONE drink which was the best pina colada I think I've ever had (its actually had me craving pina colada ever since! LOL).

We got back Wednesday night, had dinner with my mom and the boys, and came home and crashed. Thursday morning I woke up with the worst migriane I have ever had. It was so bad I couldn't keep anything down and threw up the next two days. So from Thursday to Sunday (the remainder of our honeymoon) I was beyond sick. I felt so bad! Louie knew I couldn't help it and we still can't figure out what triggered it either. I have severe allergies and when we were in Vegas I felt great but coming back to Texas I guess hit me too hard.

I've felt off ever since. Work has been strange and I have been very moody. Not sure what my problem is. Everyone is thinking I might have gotten pregnant during the honeymoon but right now its too soon to tell.

So today I am trying to track what I eat/drink and started taking all my supplements again (I had stopped after the wedding) and am hoping that'll help me lose a few pounds and feel better.

Oh and my birthday is tomorrow!!! 32 baby!!!

Man I remember those days! When I was pregnant with my oldest I took care of my nephew who was six months old at the time and man did that wear me out! I actually went into labor the day after I stopped watching him and wonder if that didn't push me into labor (I'm kidding-I was induced *wink*). The horrible thing is your doctor tells you to rest but that's the hardest thing to do when you are pregnant! I never could find a comfortable way to sleep! I'm a tummy sleeper so you can imagine the struggles I had at night! LOL

Yeah, I cheated and picked her up a few times today... but I've been doing childcare all week chasing 3 boys, and I missed my baby! She's in bed now... trying to relax a bit. Yesterday I got in 2 hours of walking at the zoo, and I think I might take the boys swimming tomorrow.... now to see if I can fit into my bathing suit... lol.... it's a bigger one that I got right after baby girl was born to go over the extra belly and it's one piece, so it will probably stretch... SOOO tired from working with these boys the past two days though! AND I've made sure that I'm in bed for at least 9 hours at night... can't say how much sleep I'm actually getting, but I'm in bed! Lol!

Ready to loose the baby weight!

I am a Mother's Day baby!! May 10, 1981 so guess what day I am shooting for....LOL It is a great day. ;) Man I can't believe I'll be 32! It doesn't seem real. Some days I feel like I'm 20 and other days I feel like I'm 40! Haha!! I hope and pray that he stays put until then. I love that you are not getting the water retention and that you are able to rest. I know its hard not being able to pick up your baby girl though. I think that's what I would struggle with the most.
