Last couple of weeks

Steve and I have started working out at least twice a week - usually three times - and it's really made a difference in my weight loss. Last week I lost 4 lbs and this week's loss is 3 lbs. This is a great improvement from the 1-2 lb loss I was experiencing. I'm down to 210 lbs this week - onederland is so close!

We've really been enjoying our late spring/early summer. Steve finished his MBA! And we celebrated with family by going to dinner the night of (four chicken wings for me) and going to SeaWorld the next day. I was able to enjoy SeaWorld without dying of exhaustion. The next weekend we hosted our cousin and her triplet boys and were able to enjoy the community pool and keep up with them. This past weekend we went to Weeki Wachee Springs and I wasn't too big for the water slides! I'm comfortable in my one piece bathing suit with board shorts and don't feel as self conscious about my body. I feel so free to do all these fun things!

Well, that would explain it...

TMI warning

Well, now I understand how it was physically possible not to lose weight this week. I got my period today. And I would just like to add that this is 28 days after my last period! OMG - is my body working normally??? Hopefully, these regular cycles will keep up - that will tremendously help us TTC. Even though I have awful cramps and a backache, I'm so grateful. Yahoo!

How is it physically possible?

I didn't lose any weight this week. GRRRRRRR. I don't know how it's PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE! I eat like a freaking BIRD! Last week I lost 4 lbs and the two weeks before that nothing. I didn't work out as much as I should have last week, but I didn't work out at all for the longest time and still lost weight. I guess I'm out of the "honeymoon" period. But my logical mind still does not understand how I can consume 600-700 calories a day and not lose weight. I know people may say I'm not getting enough calories - which makes even less sense to my logical mind. I'm going to weigh tomorrow and see what the scale says. I swear my weight fluctuates so much from day to day, from morning to afternoon. I always weigh Monday mornings and it made me look forward to one aspect of Monday. I'm going to have to rethink that now that the scale isn't making me happy anymore!
