3 days in a row!
I am so proud of myself!

Though my back is sore.
Between my shoulder blades.
And I'm unsure what is causing that...

After swearing off narcotics I am eating my words.
I will be getting phentermine (Adipex) on Friday.
I know I said I wouldn't. yada yada yada
But when I have 3 friends being successful on it,
I have to give it a try to.
Though I can promise you that if it doesn't work for me that I will go completely mental. I will be updating this blog from a padded cell. I am serious. It is getting in my head deep. Which is scary, because it's never bothered me this much. blah

Big note:
I got on the sscale this morning.
It said 182!
BUT since today isn't weigh in day,
I'm not counting it...
Hopefully it will still say that, or lower, Friday morning!

2 in a Row!

I've done my BL dvd 2 days in a row now!
How exciting is that?!

I wasn't going to do it yesterday because I went walking with Marianne but I wanted to show it to her and we ended up doing it.

Woo Hoo!

Good News!

I can walk today!
I am only a little bit sore.
That means I know my limits
and can work out the rest of the week!
Woo Hoo!

It's been a week since I worked out...
I was sore all the way unil Thursday from last Sunday's workout.

I went kinda easy w/it today.
Hopefully I will not be sore tomorrow.

Lunges are NOT my friend.
I don't know how some people can be so obsessed with them!

Level 1 of the dvd I spoke about yesterday is full of lunges.
I thought I was ok until I couldn't get out of bed today.
And my legs are sore in places they have never been sore before.
But I kinda like it, makes me think my saddle bags are going away!

The Biggest Loser

I've been wanting to go to a Zumba class for some time now.
But I'm too afraid because I am well aware of my lack of coordination.

So, I bought The Biggest Loser Cardio Max dvd to see if I could keep up with.

Um, I was sweating during the warmup!
But I did keep up with it and made it through the first workout.
Wether I will be able to move tomorrow is still unknown.

The big news is, I LOVE IT!
It was people my size and bigger doing it!
Not some skinny bitches.
It made me go "Ok, I CAN do this if SHE can!"

I'm going to try and do it every day,
but we shall see...

Metabolism Test

I had my metabolism tested yesterday.

First let me say it was not fun.
Very claustrophobic!

And it told me just what I though it would.
That mine is slow.
Only 5 points below normal, but still...

I counted calories all week and the test proved to me I was not eating enough. I am maintaining my weight. I need 1400 calories to lose. But the trick is to eat more often. I keep flatlining my metabolism by only eating breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Yes, I knew all this by word of mouth.
But my husband was not satisfied. He sees me busting my ass and doesn't understand what's going on. So, I needed something to show him in black in white if you know what I mean. (he's one of those that don't believe in eating 5-6 small meals a day)

Now that I know for sure that is what's causing my problem it's time to work harder. I've already downloaded the calorie counter app on my new BlackBerry so hopefully it will make everything easier.

I am going to start with a clean slate...

New Drink

My husband requires a crap load of sugar in his tea so I wanted to get something that would cure my sweet tooth w/o having tea all the time.

While looking for Crystal Light I discovered Wal-Mart has their own brand.

And guess what? It's amazing.
Tastes just like Cherry Kool-Aid!
& there's no weird after taste like w/Crystal Light.

It has become apparent that I did not think yesterday's decision through very good.

Totally skipped my mind that I am on Bontril.
& do NOT need any more caffeine.

I only take the Bontril at breakfast & lunch.
I learned I couldn't take it at dinner cause it was keeping me awake.

Anyway, I was up until 1:30 this morning.
Wide the eff awake.
My normal bedtime is 9:30!

So, I'm gonna have to find decaf tea to make at home and not have it from anywhere else. If it becomes too much of a hassle then I'll just drop it again. haha

Decision Made

Well, I decided to drink sweet tea again.
Still saying no to Coke (and any other dark soda) though.

I have not had either since July 26, 2009.
Yeah, that's almost 8 months! wow

I stopped because of advice from my doctor.
Supposedly causing my kidney stones.
(I honestly think it was from taking Alli)

So, I'm gonna drink sweet tea in moderation.
At least until I have the surgery to remove the kidney stones.
Lord knows I do not want any more of those suckers!

Most people who would have stopped intake of those 2 things would have lost at least 5 pounds, probably more. But me? Nope, didn't happen. So I'm done depriving myself.

& it will obviously help my calorie intake problem...

The only thing I'm concerned about is the caffeine.
I do not want to become addicted to that stuff again.
Esp after the withdrawals I went through.
But at least it's natural, I suppose...

I tried to get on Adipex Friday.
Didn't work. Was told if Bontril is doing what it's supposed to and suppressing my appetite that there's no reason to switch.

I'm having the metabolism test done Friday after work.
I am very anxious about this. I've got to keep a food journal this week though to take with me. Which made me discover a problem yesterday...

Somedays I am not getting enough calories.
(But of course others I am getting too many!)

I didn't work out last week due to being sore from the fall but this week I will get my butt back on track!

Remember those 2 inches I lost off my stomach?
Well, they're back. Imagine that.

But I've lost half an inch at my waist,
& and an inch off my thighs.

Next week is kick ass time.
I didn't exercise it all this week because I was sore from busting my ass and pulling every muscle in my left leg.

It's time to get serious.
Yes, I know I say that all the time.
But it's getting warm outside, which means it's beach time!
I want to wear my bikini comfortably this year!

I had my annual w/my new gyno this morning.
I liked him, other than the lectures.

Everyone has their own opinions as to what I'm doing right and wrong on this weightloss journey.

My fat doctor says I'm exercising too much.
Gyno says if I'm not doing at least 60 minutes of cardio a day, 7 days a week, I won't lose anything. Obviously, I'm prone to believe him since I haven't lost an ounce.
Though they both agree that inches lost are good.

Fat doctor prescribed me Bontril.
Gyno says it's an unhealthy copout. He said it will only end up hurting me in the end because once I quit taking it I will have to figure out how to fight the cravings myself, which I should be doing to begin with. Point taken. Once I'm out of what I have, I won't be getting more.

I even got the fakebaking lecture,
though I swear to you he is tan!

I wish I had the money to go to Fat Camp.
I have 2 weeks vacation, I just need the cash...

February ReCap

26 miles
1 hour and 30 minutes
(in the mornings I only do 30 minutes so that's why some are timed and the rest are by miles)

2 1/2 inches lost off stomach
2 inches lost off thighs
0 pounds lost

Here's to hoping for better luck in March!
