Losing It...

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

I am losing it...slowly. In this case it is a good thing! I have recently lost 4 lbs, but it has been a while since I weighed myself and it feels good. My clothes are also fitting slightly better, which is encouraging.

I am participating in a slim down challenge that my employer is putting on, the requirement is that you need to weigh in on Wednesday's. Who ever loses the largest percentage of body weight wins prize money. The prize money is from the entry fees of the contestants and there is money for 1st through4th. Even if I win nothing it is great motivation.

Up until I signed up for this I was having a difficult time staying motivated, but it is helping push me to track my food and generally be more active.

I also went and visited with my doctor last week, as I just have not been feeling like myself since having little man 3 months ago. I met with her and we decided to see how a course of zoloft would help, as I had definite symptoms of PPD. It was tough for me to make the appointment, but while before I was struggling to interact with little man (I had to remind myself to interact with him) now I find I am not having that problem. That in itself is a HUGE relief, but I think this is also helping me get my motivation back. While not everyone believes in drugs and I really try to take a holistic view of medicine, I am so glad that I went and visited my doctor and she was able to prescribed something that is beginning to help.

I hope you are having a good day!

    4 lbs is really great! Glad to hear things are looking up for you now. I dealt with PPD with all 3 of my kids. It's rough. You'll make it through just take it one day at a time and remember this too shall pass.
