4 month check in

My highest:  279.2
My current:  249.2

Pounds lost to date:  30!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, I'm not officially in the 240's.  I've bounced this week, but it showed up twice.  But, still-- it's going good and I am pretty dang proud with the progress.  I've had some people saying that I should be losing more and more quickly.  But, I figure slow and steady and I'll get there.

I just want to finish the race, not come in first, or even 5th.  Just finish.

Totally random.

*  I have a loss for my sister's challenge.  We have 1 week left of it, the pot is $90 and I'm at a 2.23% loss.  Doing good, but I don't think I'll be winning the pot.

*  Been feeling quite awful since Friday.  Dizzy, headache, nauseous, no appetite. Went in on Saturday to an urgent care and he asked about a heart murmur.  Which got me stressing.  Ugh.

*  Going to work today, but feel like I should stay home.  My reasoning is I don't have my sub stuff together.  Thinking about getting a sub and visiting my real doctor today.  But it's my son's 13th birthday and I don't want to ruin it by being at a doc office all afternoon.  Of course feeling sick kinda makes it not so great also.  But tomorrow doesn't work because he has football... Friday works better because we have the day off from school....

*Exercise isn't going so great.  Non-existent actually.

*Food, not so great, no appetite since Thursday or so...

Healthy workplace.

I've got one of these.  It's pretty dang cool.  We even have a school wellness person, she's a gym teacher/coach.  She's setting up a challenge between the other schools in our district, I joined.

The local college is offering all district employees and their spouses free exercise classes.

Wellness is a BIG, BIG thing here.
And I love it.
And I'm going to use it.

Because I'm "stuck."  My weight is not coming off right now- I'm hovering between 258-260.  I would like to be 250 when I have my doc appt on 10/24.

Officially outta there!

I don't think I'll be bouncing back to the 260's, I hope and think I'm officially in the 250's!!!

What I ate at the fair.

I admit, I was a little worried about going to the fair.  Not that I always tend to gorge myself, but because I have been doing really good and I didn't WANT to gorge myself.  I can't be the only one who "does good" only to be faced with an odd chance and completely blow it.  Or am I?!
Anyhow, we went, I had a blended peach lemonade, large, but milked it for 6 hours.  Browning points for being fresh squeezed?  And I hate about 1/3 of a funnel cake.  I LOVE funnel cakes, and I was sad that I only ate some of it.  Why sad?  Well, they left it in just a second or two (or 5) too long and it was super crunchy.  I like mine soft and just at the edge of crunch.  So while I was sad, my husband ate the rest and I stayed in calorie range. 

This was the first chance since June that I really had the chance to blow what I've been doing.  Not just having 200 extra calories in a day, I mean REALLY blow it.  But I didn't- I stayed within my own limits.

Go me!!!!

Magic of a pedi & TMI

Now, for you guys who come on, this post is going to be "TMI" and you might want to leave.  For you girls, it's all about "normal" stuff, that most get- but, still, my be TMI for you.  For any of you, who, like me, have PCOS and "normal" never seems to work with your body- this is reason to celebrate for me.  And you PCOSers really will get it.
So, besides the fact that this picture if proof (for me) that the magic of painted toes works, it's also down from my typical Thursday weigh in picture.  YAY!  Granted, it's not Thursday, and I'm posting- but I won't record this.  I will however add in the TMI stuff.  This morning I woke up to my Auntie F visiting.  Which makes it 2 months in a row, on her own, and not brought on by medications.  Out of the last 4 months, I've seen her 3 times.  I believe it's a record for me.  I'm almost positive of this.

What this means for me is:
1.  Come my end of October appt, where Doc Lady wants me to try to lose 10-20 pounds, I might actually leave it with 2 medications off my list.  My only two, for HBP.  And with metformin not being added.
2.  If I can get off the meds I'm on now, and not be on met, I'll be given the green light to procreate.  Which hasn't been lighted in about a year or so, I can't remember when I was put on the meds, but not much over or below that year mark.
3.  Not that we plan on any kind of "let's knock her up fast" scenario.  I was quite firm in the "I want to get myself back in order before trying again," but it could happen.  If I get over-excited.  Which I'm likely to do.  But I won't.  I really want to lose at least 40 more pounds before we try anything.  60 would be better.  65 would put me at my goal weight.

Reintroducing myself to Wii.

 We got our Wii for fun times as a family.  I got exercise stuff for everyone, but mostly for me.  Mostly for Montana winters.  I don't hardly touch it any other time.  But, a friend posted on FB yesterday about doing Just Dance 2, and I had a desire- so I went with it.

My poor little me is almost 4 years OLDER.  UGH!  Poor thing.  I did 30 minutes of the games and will retest my age and stuff once a week.  *ahem* try to remember this Melzie!

I also did 30 minutes of JD2, since that's what got me on this little track.  It was fun!  I was burning it up and I'm sure had my family been home to watch me (1 was at work, 1 at football practice) they would have died from laughter.  I am not now, nor have I ever been, very... "in beat."
But better than being in beat, I had fun, and I honestly only stopped because my husband came home.  Which meant I needed to get stuff together for picking up the kid at football, and for his evening swim party.  On my list for the next Wii play-- to see which games you can play against someone.  My son does Mario Cart with his cousins.  What I wouldn't love to play JD or Wii Fit with friends!!  So I want to see if you can.  I've just never paid attention.
