I had my yearly appointment today and it was...un-eventful. Everything is normal provided my blood tests come back normal as well. I'm glad that's over with. I hate that appointment.
My head feels much better today. Thanks for the well wishes Stephanie! A diet energy drink helped me get through the little bit of leftover pain this morning and now I'm doing much better. I typically avoid energy drinks, I used to have a 2-4 a day habit, which I broke when I went cold turkey for 6 months in 2009. My morning coffee is usually enough to keep the headaches at bay, but yesterday I forgot coffee, suck!
My weigh in today was still 191, I know I have been under 1500 calories all week, because I've had no appetite, and I've been working out regularly. So, I'm not sure why I haven't lost more. Maybe what I did eat was just too full of salt that I'm still retaining water, even though I'm guzzling like a gallon a minute. Whatever, I'm still losing and my clothes keep fitting better so I must be doing something right. I got new cup, it's a 52 ounce behemoth and two of them make up my fluid intake for the day, but today I've been through three of them, and I don't even feel water-logged anymore. It feels normal.
I spoke with the MD today about my weight loss, she said that what I'm doing is exactly what I should be doing. I even asked if 100 plus ounces of fluids a day was too much and she said no, in fact your body needs fluid to work properly. It felt nice to be validated by a medical professional. She also said I'm good to go to have baby #3, I asked about dieting while preggers and she said I'd have to increase my calories to 1800, but at that amount I can still lose. She also said I can keep working out, I've been doing it long enough that it's part of my routine and not doing it would cause more harm.
I have lost 41 pounds, and I am never going to see them again, because I have changed my life, and even though yesterday was questionable; I feel amazing.
