Everybody Poops (day 32)

Friday, February 01, 2013

I lost 2.4lbs this week. I'm very happy with that. I think taking a break last weekend was a good idea. I tried hard to stay within my allotted calories each day and I changed one 30 minute workout to a 45. So, in general not too many big changes, so it wasn't toooooo hard. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't easy. But I did it and I'm patting myself on the back for that. Only 4 more pounds and i'll be at the twenty pound mark. I promised myself a treat for that. Not sure what yet, but something awesome.

My goal for this week is to eat more fiber. I also bought some ground flaxseed that I have yet to try in anything. I've heard that has good healthy things about it. I'll have to do a recipe search later. Looking back on it, I think this feels so hard this time around because the last time I dropped thirty some odd pounds, the doctor had just diagnosed me with Pre-Diabetes and she thought that putting me on this awful medicine Metphormin would help me. I was never once told to check my blood sugar, just take this medicine. (I know, that doesn't make a lot of sense, needless to say I don't see her anymore.) But, anyway, the Metphormin was actually the biggest aid in me dropping the weight because it upset my stomach so much that I never pooed so much in my life. (Sorry to be TMI) So obviously I lost a bunch of weight real fast, I couldn't keep anything in my stomach for more than a few hours. I have to keep reminding myself that every time I get on the scale, that before I had unrealistic results because of the medicine.

This time, though I'm going to do it the right way. Not with medicine. (Especially since I have a child now, I don't have time to spend all day in the can!) I did however, try a Full Bar yesterday. Its supposed to fill you up so that you eat less at the next meal. It seemed to work, I guess. Tasted pretty gross, like I was chewing on chocolate coated cardboard, but I'll give it another shot I guess. I've heard they have gummies too, I think I may look into that instead. I think that this could be helpful for after lunch. I usually tend to do the most damage between lunch and dinner, so if I feel fuller after lunch then maybe it won't be so difficult to make it to dinner. We'll see.
