Friday Weigh-In

I had my weigh-in this morning. I will have to take measurements this evening. It will be my first time measuring, so I won't really be able to give you an update as to whether I'm actually any smaller than I was before, but it will be a start anyway.

As for my weight, I am down 1.2 lbs from last week. Which makes me exactly the same weight I was the week before (two weeks ago). I'm looking at this positively. I hope that means that I've now converted a lot of my fat weight to muscle and am now on the path to actually losing weight. I know it's probably too quick for that and I'm actually just experiencing the fluctuation of weight, but I'm trying to look at it positively.

Considering I blew my calories yesterday, I'm not too disappointed with my weight today. Next week I'll be trying to eat less calories daily anyway because we're going out next Friday night and, since I know we aren't pregnant, I plan to be drinking. Since alcohol holds MASSIVE amounts of calories, I want to save as many calories for that as I can so I don't go enormously over my allowed calorie intake. Anyone know how many calories are in a pina colada? Those are my weakness!

I saw my regular GP on Tuesday for refills on my Adipex. I was discussing with her how angry I've been feeling lately. It's been really bad with very small things setting me off with absolutely no prior notice. I can be in a perfectly okay mood and then suddenly - like a light switch being turned on - I'm explosive. She suggested it may be a side-effect of Adipex. Due to that and the fact my blood pressure was very high (158/102 - yeah, I know), she changed the medication she has me on. I'm now on Bontril.

So, can I tell a difference in my temper yet, you ask? Well, I'm feeling more angry today than I've felt in a long time. This may be Adipex still in my system or it may be Bontril or it may just be my regular hormones or the last few years piled on top of one another or me just having a bad day. Whatever it is, I am not a happy camper today. I will monitor how my temper is over the next few weeks and we'll go from there.

I have noticed that blogging makes me calmer, so I guess I need to do more of that. I just don't really know what to blog about most days. Since we're not able to really TTC at the moment and weight loss doesn't really have daily news and my life is pretty boring, I seem to be at a loss for things to blog about. I guess I'll have to give it some more thought.

At least today has been a bit of a check in! I still have to get my thoughts together on my RE and his thoughts on my weight. I'll try to work on that over the next day or so.

Btw, have I mentioned how really, truly frustrating I find it that my internet at work will no longer let me open most of your blogs?!?! This is where I did most of my blog visits because The Hubs and I share our home computer and he loves his Internet as much as I do mine. It makes it difficult to get to visit you and I miss you! I guess work decided I really needed to be working when I was here, huh? That seems awfully industrious of them to me, lol!

Ta-ta for now folks!

Good for you! Keep up the good work!

I would never be able to share my computer with someone, I am on it way too often and dread the idea of not being able to use it any time I want to.

Good for you on the loss.

And, if blogging helps keep you calm, start telling us about the books you are reading or stories from your childhood or stories from your time in England. You are far from boring my friend.
