Fat or Pregnant?

Saturday, January 19, 2013

So I'm starting to enter into that awkward stage of weight loss where you get the whole is she fat or pregnant?

I really only "look" like I have extra weight around my stomach, which leads people to wonder if I'm just a few months pregnant or I'm just "fat" This may sound ridiculous and that it's all in my head. Well I assure you it isn't. When I was gaining the weight I had people asking me if I was pregnant. And people that haven't met me don't know that I have lost 50+ pounds.

It's not a bid deal, it's just kinda awkward when people open their mouth to actually ask the question.

Got in a Jillian Michaels workout today! Left my legs soo wobbly I didn't think I was gonna make it up the stairs to the shower, and then my arms soo wobbly the shampoo bottle felt like it weighed a ton. Let me tell you doing the 30 shred with 5 lb weights because that's all you have, is incredibly difficult.

So I'm really starting to stress out about money again. My car insurance bill is kicking in now, which adds another $130/mo to my bills each month and to top it all off my roommates are 2 months behind on utilities. If they aren't caught up by Feb 1st, I'm turning the internet off. It won't do a ton but it'll help a little. I might have to stop my counseling too. I wish selling the car and house could be an instantaneous process. I can't even put the house up for sale with out going through my lawyer, then his, and finally him to make sure it's ok. AHHH!!! I just want this mess to be over with already.

I know I will get there, they are just a few more obstacles that I have to jump over to get my life together. I know I will figure it out, and I know that everything will work out one way or another. For now it's taking it as it goes, and doing the best I can.

    Jillian will kick your butt,but you are getting it done. The midsection is difficult to tone up,but not impossible. People who do not know you,don't know you are in transition. I am the fattest person in my department,but I have lost 63 pounds. It will take time and" we" have patience.
    You seem pretty resourceful and smart,you will figure out a way to get your problem solved.

    *hugs* Sorry you've had those uncomfortable experiences. At least it means you're really showing your healthy living efforts though.

    Sounds like even though things are getting tough, you're keeping strong (though from what I've been reading that sounds like that's just you!). I hope your roommates come around. Just keep focusing on all the other good things in your life, and it sounds like there's a lot. You're moving closer to your dreams even if there's still some hiccups.
